Hyatt House and Hyatt Place open in Downtown Tampa with a heated rooftop pool


Hyatt Place Tampa Downtown and Hyatt House Tampa Downtown, the first combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels located in downtown Tampa, celebrated their official openings at 325 North Florida Avenue.

The combo allows visitors to enjoy all that both brands have to offer, while expanding Hyatt’s overall footprint in the Tampa Bay region.

Located just 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.

Take a dip in the rooftop pool

Inside you’ll find 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.

The hotels are in the heart of Tampa, and offer guests quick access to the Tampa Riverwalk, Amalie Arena (current home of the Toronto Raptors and Tampa Bay Lightning), the Tampa Convention Center, and some of the best restaurants in the entire city.

Interiors inspired by the Florida sunshine

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. For those in town on business, this is the ideal hotel.

Tailor-made 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™.

Experience the Corazon Bar

Great news pet owners, the hotel is pet-friendly and welcomes dogs up to 50 pounds.

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.

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.
