Revel in the rich history of Ybor City and experience Tampa as a true local when you stay at one of the best Ybory City hotels, Le Méridien Tampa. Ybor City's red brick buildings, wrought iron balconies and Florida sunshine capture the true Latin American spirit in Tampa. 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 in to the city to work in cigar factories contributing to Ybor's still present Latin atmosphere.
Le Méridien Tampa is just a few minutes drive from Ybor City, allowing for an easily accessible excursion to an iconic district in Tampa.
