Marriott International’s EDITION Hotels is set to soon open its new five-star luxury boutique property, The Tampa EDITION, in Florida, US.

With global launch expected in October this year, the new property will open in preview from 20 September.

It will be EDITION Hotels’ fifth US property. In April last year, the brand announced plans to open eight new hotels in three continents by the end of 2022.

The new property will come up as part of a $3.5bn urban mixed-use development expansion project, called Water Street Tampa.

The project is led by Strategic Property Partners, a collaboration between Cascade Investment and Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik.

The main entrance of the hotel is accessible from Channelside Drive, opening to a lobby with 20ft-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The 26-storey hotel features 172 rooms and 38 private residences spread over nine floors of the vertical tower.

Of the total guestrooms, the hotel offers five ‘Garden Terrace’ rooms on the third floor and a one-bedroom Penthouse on the eighth floor.

The Penthouse will include a media room, an open plan living and dining space, a pantry and a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom.

The Tampa EDITION will have a fitness centre, a rooftop pool, a spa, a wellness facility, a 250-guest private event space and several meeting rooms, including a boardroom and two studios.

It also includes a total of seven bars and restaurants, including The Lobby Bar; a Mediterranean restaurant, called Lilac; Azure at EDITION; Market at EDITION; and Punch Room serving Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico delicacies.

With 14 hotels in operation across the globe, the upscale luxury brand EDITION was conceived by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott.

Schrager said: “Not often have I had the opportunity to work on a project that will completely transform the very centre and heartbeat of a great city like Tampa and make it even greater.”
