Congratulations to our friends and partners over at the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore Hotel who celebrated their 1 year anniversary this year this past weekend!

For those of you who haven't visited or stayed at this property, let me be the first one to tell you that this Florida Green Lodging Certified hotel excels in all areas from meeting space, to courtesy of staff, cleanliness, rates, and social events amongst many other great accolades.

This gorgeous hotel features  over 14,000 sq. ft. of flexible banquet, meeting space and pre-function space. Having attended a meeting or two there before, I can vouch for how amazing this place is! Whether you want to hold your associations annual board of directors meeting, or use the space for your wedding reception, you can't really go wrong with doing it here as from the moment you start planning to the time you leave, you'll have a dedicated Crowne Meetings Director working with you to pull of the perfect meeting.

As far as accolades go, if you didn't me believe me when I said this place is awesome, then just take my word for it , as they have been winning more awards than Avatar lately (can you tell I was up late watching the Oscar's).

  • 2009 InterContinental Hotels Group Renovation Award
  • 2009 InterContinental Hotels Group Meeting Service Excellence Award
  • 2009 Florida West Coast Chapter National Association of Catering Executives venue of the Year Award
I am sure there are plenty more to come in the near future with the way these guys have been been working hard to make sure all of their guests feel at home. If you remember a while back, I wrote about some of the great events they do after hours for guests.

Along with all of the other great things about the Crowne, you can also go onto their website and find great packages and deals for your family vacation, girlfriend getaway, mancation, or other themed vacation ideas.

Long story short, these guys have it all, and after year one of the renovations, you can bet your tail its only going to get better! Again though, you don't have to take my word for it, just call or book directly and see for yourself!

This is Jerm signing off for now, but be sure to check back for more Tampa Bay hotel updates from the Westshore District!
