I have some exciting news about a new hotel in Tampa Bay! The Westin Tampa Bay Airport hotel, located in Tampa's Westshore district, will open its doors to the public on Thursday, January 22. The newly constructed, $68 million hotel is located just minutes from Tampa International Airport and the Westshore district's top-of-the-line malls and various restaurants.

The hotel features 255 beautifully appointed guests rooms, meeting facilities, upscale dining at AquaKnox, a rooftop lounge called BluVu, a Starbucks coffee shop and all of the Westin brand's refreshing signature amenities and services.

Just in time for Super Bowl XLIII, this hotel is going to be a magnificent addition to Tampa Bay's hotel package. Make sure to keep checking back for photos of the property. I'll post them as soon as I can!
