We got married there on 5/27/18, this venue was perfect for our needs! Ended up with about 100 guests and there was plenty of room for them (and more). I loved the way they set up the ceremony-->cocktail area-->reception hall for the guests, the flow worked really well. The food was AMAZING. I had so many guests comment on how good the food was; the beef and chicken were delicious and the portion size was huge. My only complaint is that I wanted to eat more than half of my chicken and I was too full to do so :D The hotel was in a great location for our guests and it's definitely a good idea to book rooms there when you have an open bar. The rooms are comfy and well priced, well worth it. The staff is amazing, everyone at the front desk/coffee bar/restaurant was so nice and the servers at the wedding were great!! Also, there's a coffee bar at the hotel where you can get Starbucks coffee whenever you need it...let me tell you how useful this was to wedding planning in the last few days before the wedding!!Sent on 06/14/2018
Cannot say enough about Haley and how wonderful she was!!!! My husband and I had no idea what we were doing when planning the wedding and she guided us every step of the way. We were planning this wedding from a different state, with my mom doing a majority of the work with the venue due to our crazy schedules, and yet not one detail was lost in the process. We went back and forth on tons of details and Haley was flexible and changed everything for us as needed. On the day of she helped the photographer find the best places to do photos, kept everyone on schedule, and helped my mom and aunt set up all of my decor. We've all been saying how perfect the wedding was and how we wouldn't change anything about it, and Haley was a huge part of making it all come together so well!
I highly recommend this venue, if you are having a wedding in the area go check it out! If you taste the food and talk to Haley, you'll see why this is a spectacular choice for your event.

Epic! Amazing beyond words!
Hotel Alba was my wedding venue Friday 6/14/19. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. The entire staff was amazing, not one thing I would change from valet to food to rooms.Sent on 07/06/2019
Haley Murray is the true MVP of Hotel Alba. She not only facilitates creating the most memorable wedding but also ensures even the slightest detail is perfect. This is the right person for the task and is representing your brand to the fullest. Her talent and skill set for this niche industry are unparalleled.
In addition to Haley, every associate I interacted with was professional and delivered excellent customer service. The restaurant Manager Peter M. also deserves an award for his handling and oversight of my wedding/wedding weekend.
I am so happy I made the decision to trust Hotel Alba with my special milestone.

I recently planned my nieces wedding at Hotel Alba Tampa. From the start over a year ago Haley Murray ( event coordinator) gave her complete help and time. I live in NJ so I was planning this wedding long distance. I can’t begin to thank Haley for the insight and help on every detail and question I had. I must commend hotel and staff for a beautiful wedding. The venue , food, bar and catering staff was everything a bride could ask for. The hotel staff starting with receptionist Coleen n Regina , including housekeeping made this an event with lifetime of memories. I highly recommend This venue for any future brides . 😍Sent on 05/23/2019

Haley made our wedding perfect!
Haley with the Crowne Plaza made or wedding perfect. She helped me coordinate everything from out-of-state, gave amazing recommendations for other vendors, and helped make it stress-free and wonderful. The food was great, Bar was flowing, and accommodation was exactly as expected. Most of our guests stayed at the hotel. Shout out to the shuttle drivers as well - they were amazing!Sent on 01/03/2019

The Westshore Crowne plaza hosted the perfect wedding for me. The hotel was so accommodating not only with my requests, but the requests of my guests (We had around 200 people attend). Maria the wedding coordinator took care of everything the day of my wedding, I didn't have to worry about a thing it turned our great! My guests had nothing but good things to say about the hotel and their staff. I would highly recommend them for any wedding in the Tampa area!Sent on 11/16/2016

A hotel wasn't my first choice for a wedding venue but when I checked this out, it really offered the best price for what you get. I was pleasantly surprised by everything included. With the Crowne Plaza came a miracle named Maria, she was my wedding coordinatior. I've met with her several times and she always made sure that I was feeling confidant and excited about my upcoming day ensuring everything was in place. The day of, I would have been a ball of stress, but maria made sure everything was in place, From the center pices to my wedding arch. She had everyone lined up and waiting, ensured all my vendors were where they needed to be and told me I looked beautiful. I am speechless as to how well planned my entire wedding was and I received multiple compliments on how smoothly everything ran. After the wedding we spent a wonderful evening in our penthouse suit overlooking Tampa bay. I'll never forget how special my day was and how wonderful Maria was. Thank you so much for making my day perfect. ?Sent on 12/09/2016

Crowne Plaza was a great pick for our wedding. They were flexible in every way possible from meeting times to prices. The event coordinator Maria was absolutely amazing. She was there with us though the whole process and even stayed for most of the wedding to ensure that everything went as planned. They made planning a wedding so much less stressful. I would recommend this venue to anyone.Sent on 10/13/2015

The Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore was the perfect location for our nuptial weekend, and all done at an affordable rate. Additionally, the staff members were hospitable and overly accommodating. The Crowne Plaza's true secret weapon is MARIA MATILSZKI!!!Sent on 07/27/2015
Maria is the social catering manager.. a tremendous on-site event coordinator.. event expert extraordinaire. Her matchless expertise allowed us to succeed in planning our beautiful Florida wedding from Columbus, Ohio alongside my family located in the area, and off-site coordinator.
Accommodations included, but were not limited to the following: a virtual site tour directed by Maria prior to booking the venue, offering our guests an affordable weekend rate, frequent and prompt correspondence, flexibility, rendering detailed diagrams of our ceremony and reception set-up, first-class service by Maria and all staff members to execute an unforgettable, tremendous day that far exceeded our expectations.
We are so grateful for our blessings in the form of Maria M., and the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore! :)

We were recently married at the Crowne Plaza. The ballroom looked fabulous and the staff took such good care of us. We received so many comments about how delicious the food was! Lauren Smith, our wedding coordinator, was extremely helpful and professional, yet fun! She thought of everything...so I didn't have to! I highly recommend the Crowne for any event you may need to plan!Sent on 01/12/2015

Brides, look no further. The Crowne Plaza –Westshore’s motto states every bride deserves a Crowne and they absolutely go above and beyond expectations to make your day perfect.Sent on 07/10/2013
Our Wedding Event Planner Jessica Lattenhauer diligently worked with me on every aspect including details that I overlooked. First, she recommended that we create a wedding website and she was able to add the Crowne Plaza as a link on our wedding page. Our guests were able to click on our wedding site and book their hotel rooms with our promotional rate and code. It was quick and easy.
Second, she gave me a list of vendors, constantly communicating and keeping me on track. She was a tremendous asset to my planning. My wedding was a huge success. The escort card system that Jessica recommended for me to use was absolutely easy and convenient. The staff was able to serve each of my guest meals with no problem. We had a wonderful sit down dinner. Many of our guests stated that their meals were fantastic. A few even stated that their plate presentations looked too cute to eat it. The chef did an awesome job. Jessica’s recommendation of Icing on the Cake was perfect. Our cake was decorated according to our selection and it was so delicious that when we cut the cake, we both said let’s have another piece. That was priceless.
Lastly, the Crowne Plaza Westshore staff greeted each of our guests with a warm positive professionalism and eager to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. The courtesy shuttle drove many of our guests around the 3 miles radius. Our guests absolutely appreciated having that convenient luxury.
Our wedding was amazing, we all had a blast and we couldn’t have done it without the Crowne Plaza Westshore. We will forever cherish our memories of our wedding day.

Working with Maria was an absolutely pleasure. I was able to contact her with whatever I needed. And I have to say that the last few weeks are the craziest so I was constantly asking 101 questions. The staff at Crowne is professional and my husband and I truly enjoyed our wedding and hotel stay.Sent on 06/12/2015
