Tampa has always been a popular tourist destination for convention-goers and holidaymakers alike. But now, City of Tampa’s lodging options are becoming even thanks to major upgrades courtesy of Water Street Tampa.

Water Street Tampa is a development project by SPP Real Estate that is working to reimagine the Channel District. This project includes the development of world-class hotels where convention-goers can find premium lodging options.

Tampa Marriott Water Street

One of SPP’s current projects is the newly named Tampa Marriott Water Street. Formerly known as the Marriott Waterside, this popular hotel is currently wrapping up a $50 million renovation. Last spring they completed upgrades to the rooms, meeting spaces, and fitness center, while this month they’ve unveiled the new lobby and their new restaurant, The Garrison Tavern.
