A new Marriott Bonvoy hotel is coming to Tampa — and it’s high-end EDITION property.

Here’s what you need to know!

Tampa Gets Fifth U.S. EDITION property

The Tampa EDITION has a soft-opening phase scheduled from September 20, 2022, with plans for a full launch in October.

It’s planning to pack a punch when it finally does open. Marriott is billing the new EDITION as Tampa’s first “five-star experience.” The hotel boasts 26 stories with 172 rooms and nearly 40 private residencies. Additionally, the EDITION will feature:

  • A rooftop terrace with a pool
  • Pool club with cabanas for day and night, open to hotel guests and residents only
  • Spa and wellness facility
  • Fitness center
  • 7 bars and restaurants, including an Eastern Mediterranean restaurant from a Michelin-starred chef

The EDITION is located in the all-new Water Street district of Tampa, which is a $3.5 billion development project. The area is also home to a couple of other Marriott properties, the 4-star Tampa Marriott Water Street and the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street.

This marks the fifth U.S. EDITION property. There are 2 hotels in New York (New York EDITION and Times Square EDITION), 1 in Miami Beach, and 1 in West Hollywood, California.

International locations include Abu Dhabi, Barcelona, Bodrum, Dubai, London, Madrid, Reykjavik, Sanya, China, Shanghai, and Tokyo Toranomon.

“Not often have I had the opportunity to work on a project that will completely transform the very center and heartbeat of a great city like Tampa, and make it even greater,” said EDITION creator Ian Schrager in a statement.

“I call it urban expansion, rather than urban renewal, and it serves as a model for how cities will transform and evolve [for] the future. The scale of it is mind-boggling, and we’re very happy to be right here and a part of it,” the statement continued.

Such luxury won’t come cheap. Cash prices for a standard 405 square-foot superior king room start at $499 for dates in the fall.

If you want to use Marriott Bonvoy points, expect to shell out a significant amount: award rates start at 85,000 points per night for a king room. Luckily, Marriott Bonvoy points are easy to earn through Marriott stays, credit card welcome bonuses, or transferring points from partners.

Final Thoughts

This is exciting news for people who enjoy visiting Tampa for work or play. The city is home to some other high-end properties like the aforementioned JW Marriott and others. Still, this opening marks a new era of luxury properties in the area.
