When it opens in 2020, Marriott will operate a new hotel at Water Street Tampa—a $3 billion mixed-use development currently under construction in downtown Tampa, Fla. The 519-guestroom, 26-story hotel will be operated under the JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts brand and will be designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates with interiors by Champalimaud Design. 

JW Marriott Tampa will have various social spaces and amenities across six levels. The entrance will include a four-story atrium, designed to be a public hub and a meeting place.

The property will also focus on wellness, and the hotel’s sixth floor will have a spa, health club, outdoor pool, an event lawn and a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

At the top floor, a rooftop lounge and terrace will have views of downtown Tampa. Notably, this will be the highest rooftop bar in the city.

The Water Street Tampa neighborhood will be one of the largest urban mixed-use real-estate developments in the U.S. The project includes more than nine million square feet of commercial, hospitality, educational, entertainment, cultural and retail space.

Water Street Tampa is being developed by Strategic Property Partners (SPP), a partnership between Cascade Investment and financier Jeff Vinik, who owns the NHL ice hockey franchise Tampa Bay Lightning.
