Strategic Property Partners, LLC (“SPP”) today announced that it will bring Marriott International’s JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts luxury brand for the first time to Tampa, within the Water Street Tampa neighborhood. The 519-room, 26-story hotel will rise steps from the Tampa Convention Center and Amalie Arena, where the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning play, and feature the highest rooftop bar in Tampa Bay. Construction on the hotel will start in early 2018.
SPP, which is developing downtown’s $3 billion Water Street Tampa neighborhood, announced it is also investing over $40 million to fully renovate the adjacent 727-room Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. The combined hotels will create the largest collection of hotel rooms and meeting space in Tampa Bay, with 1,246 rooms and 175,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
The hotels will play a key role in the Water Street Tampa neighborhood, a multi-phased urban development project that includes more than 9 million square feet of commercial, residential, hospitality, educational, entertainment, cultural, and retail space, with the first new buildings breaking ground in early 2018. Named for the historic street on which both hotels are located, the Water Street neighborhood is an ambitious vision that will create one of the largest coordinated mixed-use downtown real-estate developments in the United States.
“We are incredibly excited to extend our partnership with Marriott International, bring the JW Marriott brand to Water Street Tampa and significantly enhance the hospitality offering in downtown Tampa. Not only are we bringing a new luxury hotel to the neighborhood, we are also reinvesting in the Marriott Waterside Tampa to create a one-of-a-kind hospitality experience for everyone to enjoy with dynamic outdoor amenities seamlessly connected to the Tampa Riverwalk and adjacent marina.”
