The two Hyatt Hotels celebrate rich regional influences in design and cuisine.
TAMPA, FLA. – Hyatt Place Tampa Downtown and Hyatt House Tampa Downtown, the first combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels located in downtown Tampa, celebrated their openings. The hotels enable guests the opportunity to experience and enjoy the benefits of both brands under one roof and expand the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands’ footprint in markets that matter most to guests and World of Hyatt members.
Situated across the street from the historic City Hall, the 17-story building offers a unique layout with a stylish, single lobby serving both the 230-room Hyatt Place branded hotel and 115-room Hyatt House branded hotel. Amenities include self and valet parking options, 3,600 square feet of contemporary meeting and event space, a heated rooftop pool and spacious terrace, state-of-the-art fitness center, and the lobby level restaurant/bar, Corazon with an intimate outdoor patio. The site also includes 3,200 square feet of ground floor retail space.
“Style, convenience, and diversity are the foundations of the experiences found at Hyatt Place Tampa Downtown and Hyatt House Tampa Downtown” said General Manager Patrick Sorge. “This is a highly curated and incredibly well designed dual-branded development, with all the familiar comforts of the Hyatt brands. We are thrilled to be a part of the alluring and diverse culture of downtown Tampa and look forward to welcoming leisure and business travelers who can call our property home during their visit to this incredible city.”
The properties offer guests close proximity and access to downtown Tampa destinations such as the One Tampa City Center, Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa Riverwalk and its neighboring attractions including the Tampa Convention Center, The Florida Aquarium, Amalie Arena, and Sparkman Wharf Entertainment District.
Conceptualized by leading architecture and design firm Stonehill Taylor, the interior spaces pair jewel tones with citrus shades and feature bright, sun-kissed spaces that create an ambiance that is uniquely Tampa. The public spaces combine mixed gold and metal elements with custom patterned tilework, accent furniture, tropical leaf artwork, and glimpses of the region’s influence in the form of vintage Cuban movie posters and graphic maps of the destination. Baker Barrios Architect and DPR Construction also contributed to the project.
Hyatt Place Tampa Downtown offers guests spacious accommodations to easily sleep, work, and play as well as a Cozy Corner sleeper sofa in each room. Ideal for extended stays and designed in residential style, Hyatt House Tampa Downtown guests can enjoy suites complete with fully fitted kitchens, comfortable living spaces, and stylish bathrooms with complimentary skin and hair care amenities from KenetMD. The Hyatt House Tampa Downtown Very Important Resident (VIR) program affords guests staying 21 or more consecutive nights a complimentary welcome amenity, dining and laundry credit, and other personalized perks. The hotel is pet-friendly and welcomes dogs up to 50 lbs.
Anchoring the properties is the lobby level dining outlet – Corazon Bar and Restaurant. Focused on local ingredients and seasonal items, Corazon’s regionally inspired lunch and dinner menu is filled with dishes like the Classic Tampa Cuban Sandwich, Blackened Fish Tacos, and a signature grass-fed beef Corazon Burger with chorizo, crisp plantain, chipotle sauce, and pickled cabbage on toasted Medianoche bread. Guests can also find freshly prepared grab-and-go snacks, sandwiches, salads and groceries in the hotel’s 24-hour H Market.
Later this year, three new businesses are set to open in the ground level retail spaces. This includes a new Starbucks featuring outdoor seating, mobile ordering and a cold brew beverage menu; The Wicked Pour, a self-pour beer and wine taproom offering several local Tampa brews; and Junmai Station Sushi, a grab-and-go kiosk offering rice dishes, sushi bowls and small plates, will debut a selection of Japanese-style dishes and sundries.
