Fodor's Expert Review Aloft Tampa Downtown

100 W. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, Florida, 33602, USA

Right on the Hillsborough River, this high-rise used to be a bank but now offers sweeping downtown and water views close to some of Tampa's best restaurants and entertainment venues. The colorful local art that adorns the walls of the lobby may make you think this boutique chain hotel is locally owned, and that homeyness seems to be what it's going for. With its abundant workspace and gadget-friendly furnishings, this hotel attracts business travelers, but the pool, access to the Riverwalk, and closeness to nightlife make it a good choice for a fun getaway weekend. There are also kid-friendly options here, and the whole hotel is pet-friendly; dogs up to 40 pounds are given a bed, bowl, treats, and toys.
