Revel in the rich history of Ybor City during your stay at Le Méridien Tampa. Situated just a short drive away from this inimitable Tampa district, we offer hotel guests an elevated escape in the heart of the city.
Once known as the "Cigar Capital of the World," Ybor City was founded by Vicente Martinez-Ybor in 1886 as a cigar manufacturing town. Immigrants from Cuba, Spain, and Sicily fled into the city to work in cigar factories, thus contributing to Ybor's dynamic atmosphere. Today, Ybor City's red brick buildings, wrought iron balconies and Florida sunshine capture the true Latin American spirit in Tampa.
Le Méridien Tampa is just a few minutes drive from Ybor City, allowing guests to take a quick excursion to this iconic Tampa neighborhood.
