The Sheraton Suites Tampa AIrport Westshore
this month finished a major multimillion-dollar renovation in Westshore, west Florida's largest business district, a project that included the addition of 2,300 square feet of meeting space.
During the past eight months, the hotel owners renovated the eight-story tropical atrium, business lounge, fitness center, indoor pool, restaurant, lobby, common areas and its 261 two-room suites. With the new meeting space, the Sheraton now has more than 12,000 square feet of space for conventions and other meetings.
Each suite has an oversized bedroom, separate living area and a kitchenette. The renovations were specifically geared to meet the needs of business travelers and the renovations reposition the Sheraton once again as one of the leading hotels in Westshore, says Colleen Beck, director of sales and marketing for the Sheraton Hotel in Tampa.Square Mile Capital Management LLC
, a privately managed institutional investment fund, and Davidson Hotel Co.
of Memphis, Tenn. own the Sheraton. Davidson also manages the Tampa hotel.
"We want to be the leading business locale in the Westshore area," says General Manager Ray Zepp.
As one of Westshore's more mature and popular hotels for overnight guests and meetings, the Sheraton Suite was attracting visitors, but was in need of a renovation to keep up with Sheraton standards. The owners timed the work to be completed as the economy begins to improve.
