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.
