SPP Announces JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts Brand as Flag for New Hotel in Downtown Tampa Set to Open in 2020, Underscoring Progress in City’s Renaissance
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. Construction on the hotel will start in early 2018.
SPP, which is developing downtown’s $3 billion Water Street Tampa neighborhood, announced renovations are underway at the adjacent 727-room Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. The renovations of the Marriott Waterside Hotel began in the Fall of 2017 and will continue through 2018. Combined, the two hotels will create the largest collection of hotel rooms and meeting space in Tampa Bay, with 1,246 rooms and 150,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
“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 offerings in downtown Tampa,” said SPP CEO, James Nozar. “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.”
Designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW) with interiors by Champalimaud Design, the new hotel will break ground in early 2018, with a grand opening in 2020.
