Tampa’s first, and so far, only five-star hotel has been selected as one of the “best” and “most incredible” in the world. The renowned travel experts at “Fodors” just released their annual list of the 60 best hotels in the world.
Less than two dozen hotels on the entire North American continent were nominated, and The Tampa Edition in the Channelside District downtown was the only hotel in Florida to make the list. So much for The Breakers and the Don Cesar or the Ritz Carlton!
Fodors made note of The Tampa Edition’s “posh yet minimalist” rooms as well as its Michelin star restaurant, Lilac.
Five-star Tampa hotel The Tampa Edition has become THE place to be for celebrities.
And then there’s the nightlife. Catering as much to locals as to the guests, young professionals and well-heeled power couples are flocking to the rooftop pool bar and to the luxurious lobby bar, making the hotel a favorite hangout for those that can afford to hang! Last fall, the grand opening drew celebrities like Lenny Kravitz who marked the occasion with a private, VIP-only concert at Amalie Arena.
Five-star Tampa hotel The Tampa Edition looks like it belongs in Paris, London or Miami, but we’re lucky enough to have it here at home, adding more life to the ongoing renaissance in downtown Tampa.
