Fodor's Expert Review Don Vicente de Ybor Historic Inn
1915 Republica de Cuba, Tampa, Florida, 33605, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Built as a home in 1895 by town founder Don Vicente de Ybor, this boutique hotel shows that the working-class cigar city had an elegant side, too. From the beige-stucco exterior to the white marble staircase in the main lobby, it is an architectural tour de force. Rooms have parquet floors, canopy beds, and private baths; most have wrought-iron balconies. Common areas have crystal chandeliers, Tiffany lamps, and Persian carpets.
