On the upper shores of Tampa Bay, the Grand Hyatt has a picturesque location, set in its own lush, 35-acre nature reserve. It's a gorgeous place to relax, whether you want to watch the wildlife (including the egrets and herons which live in the grounds), unwind by the pool or explore the many attractions, restaurants, shops and museums of Tampa Bay.
Each of the 442 spacious rooms has a spectacular view, either over the city or the Bay. Standard features include a spa-like bath, work area, large flatscreen television with cable, satellite and video on demand, high-speed Wifi, air-conditioning, fridge and safe. For a taste of local living, choose one of the Spanish-style casitas.
There's plenty to do here without even leaving the hotel. Chill out at one of the two pools, work out in the fitness centre, enjoy a game of tennis or stroll the nature trail to explore the hotel's salt marsh and mangroves and the marine life and beautiful birds they're home to. Beyond the hotel, nearby attractions include the Florida Aquarium, Busch Gardens family adventure park and several award-winning golf courses, as well as Tampa's vibrant nightlife.
There are several onsite restaurants. Armani's, which serves Northern Italian cuisine, has a breathtaking setting on the 14th floor, with views over Tampa Bay, while Oystercatchers, as the name implies, specialises in seafood, straight from the Gulf of Mexico. When you fancy something more casual, head to 1823 Kitchen & Bar for a delicious breakfast or light lunch, while the pool bars are a great place to relax and enjoy a drink or light meal.
