That’s not the city’s only new exciting development. Tampa Bay’s first JW Marriott—a 519-room, 26-story property located steps from the convention center and Amalie Arena—is slated to open this fall with 126,000 square feet of event space and the city’s highest rooftop bar. And looking to early 2021, the Tampa EDITION will be the city’s first full-service, five-star hotel. There are also new openings from Hyatt, Hilton, and Marriott coming soon, each offering a variety of room types and unique meeting spaces.
And did we mention the new $500 million Tampa Midtown development? It offers a whopping 1.8 million square feet of retail, residential, entertainment, and hospitality space, connecting the vibrant Westshore district with the downtown Convention District.
