The best resorts in Tampa

Situated on the Gulf Coast, Tampa is a major cultural and economic hotspot for Florida. It’s home to numerous museums, like the Tampa Museum of Art and its hypermodern, LED-lit facade that changes with the time of day. Then there’s the historic Ybor City neighborhood, founded by Cuban and Spanish immigrants and once the epicenter of cigar manufacturing in the United States. The animal theme park Busch Gardens, meanwhile, is a perennial favorite for tourists.

Planning on visiting Tampa? We’ve selected two resorts (and one especially swanky hotel) for you nearby. One offers beaches, another tennis and golf, the third is a boutique hotel with a relaxing spa. Prices range from midrange to sub-luxury, so there are options for several budgets.
