Tampa Bay Hotel

Created by: PICRYLDated: 2016
Tampa Bay Hotel
The “Florida’s First Magical Kingdom” or simply Tampa Bay Hotel is a hallmark of Florida’s Gilded Age and a stunning example of Turkish and Moorish styled architecture. Florida’s premier hotel during the land and tourism boom in the 1880s and 1890s, it served as the headquarter’s of the United States Army during the Spanish-American War. As Florida’s land boom and the U.S. stock market crashed in late 1920s, the Tampa Bay Hotel was closed in 1930.

Currently, the University of Tampa uses the Hotel for classrooms and offices. The south wing of the Hotel remains dedicated to preserving the glory days of the hotel’s past.
