TAMPA, Fla. — An additional 2,000 hotel rooms are being added to the Tampa Bay area. Even with a pandemic on our hands, a big chunk of these new rooms will be done in time for the Super Bowl.

“Tampa is an interesting place because Tampa seems to roll up sleeves when things are not going well,” said CEO and President of Visit Tampa Bay Santiago Corrada.

The more than $200 million-dollar JW Marriott Hotel is actually one of two projects that helped Tampa land Super Bowl LV.

“Quite exciting letting people know that we are continuing to move forward even in light of the situation,” Corrada said. “And when you are ready to come see us, we are going to be ready to welcome you.”

The JW Marriott Hotel was designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW) out of South Florida.
