The ultra modern Aloft Downtown offers a wide variety of rooms to accommodate singles, couples, and families who are looking for time and space to relax and soak in the Florida sun. The Presidential Suite includes a balcony with a view of the University of Tampa, and the Savvy Suite includes two queen sized beds and Riverwalk views. Some of the top level rooms have balconies facing the sunset. All guest rooms are fully stocked with products from Bliss Spa.
Downtown Tampa is a very walkable neighborhood. The Aloft Tampa Downtown is less than a mile from some of the most popular tourist spots like the Tampa Riverwalk, the Tampa Theatre, the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, and the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Also nearby is the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, the Florida Aquarium, and the Tampa Bay History Center. Downtown Tampa offers plenty of coffee shops, cafes, and bars to visit between the sightseeing, all accessible on foot from The Aloft Downtown. Buddy Brew Coffee is one specialty roaster nearby that's worth a visit.
If you don’t feel like venturing far from the hotel, you can find plenty of options inside The Aloft itself. The backyard and Splash Pool deck allow beverages from the W XYZ bar. The trellised lounge area with views of the river is a peaceful way to relax after a day exploring the city.
Other hotel amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, Wine Downtown Wednesdays, and a 24-hour snack shop called Re:Fuel. Pets are welcome, so bring your fur baby to enjoy the party!
