The 323-room Westshore Grand in Tampa, Fla., has joined Marriott's Tribute Portfolio. The property recently completed a head-to-toe refurbishment that resulted in an expanded bar area and a refreshed lobby with communal tables.

Included in the Westshore Grand's 14,000 square feet of meeting and event space is a 5,064-square-foot grand ballroom. Other offerings include the No Name Lounge, Shula's Steakhouse and a fitness center. The hotel provides guests with free WiFi and complimentary pick-up and drop-off from Tampa International Airport.

"With the recently completed renovation, we are confident that the Westshore Grand, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Tampa, will deliver a truly unforgettable independent Floridian travel experience for our guests and locals alike," said Brian Povinelli, senior vice president and global brand leader for Tribute Portfolio.
