A Tampa hotel has been named one of the best in the world.
When you think of beautiful hotels, there are so many here in Florida. The Tampa EDITION, Tampa’s first five-star hotel, has been named one of the best in the world.
Some people may look at a hotel as simply just a place to shower and sleep. But if you’re like me, you like to take advantage of all the amenities a hotel has to offer. Staying at a five-star hotel can be the perfect touch to your vacation.
Travel + Leisure has released their list of the best new hotels in the world. On the list are hotels in Istanbul, Paris, Thailand, Zambia, Brazil and yes, Tampa. Tampa has plenty of nice hotels. But what I didn’t realize is that the city didn’t have any five-star hotels until October 2022. The Tampa EDITION came in at #41 on their list of 100.
The magazine says about The Tampa EDITION “You’ll know you’re in Florida the minute you step into the lobby’s verdant forest of palm fronds. And you’ll know you’re at the white-hot Tampa EDITION because, as a guest, you just breezed past a line of locals hoping to get in at one of the hotel’s seven dining spots, now among the city’s most coveted bookings.”
The Tampa EDITION is located in the Water Street district close to the Florida Aquarium, the Riverwalk, Sparkman’s Wharf and the Tampa Bay History Center. In addition to the great location, Travel + Leisure mentions the hotel’s large gym and spa, as well as their “super spacious” rooms. The hotel also features Lilac, a restaurant just added to the Michelin Guide in 2023.
