There are several good Tampa hotels located downtown and in historic Ybor City, and we present a few of them here. They are a short distance from the cruise terminal and convenient for cruise passengers. Many more hotels close to the Tampa cruise terminal.
The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay is the most luxurious of Tampa hotels. Located in the center of the bay area, in a 35-acre waterfront wildlife preserve on the shores of Upper Tampa Bay.
Casting its dramatic reflection onto the Bay, the Tampa Marriott Water Street Hotel is the newest and largest hotel in the area. Adjacent to the convention center, 5 minutes from the cruise terminal.
The Embassy Suites Tampa Downtown has spacious, comfortable two-room suites. Complimentary amenities include wifi, breakfast, nightly evening reception, and fitness center.
The Le Meridien Tampa is another luxury hotel near the cruise port. It is in a former federal courthouse transformed into a boutique hotel.
