On 7th Avenue, grab a Cuban sandwich or a café con leche as you wander the streets of Tampa’s historic district while the scent of hand-rolled cigars wafts around you. As you reach the brick façade of the historic Las Novedades with Ybor City’s all-new hotel, Hotel Haya, rising behind it, you bear witness to a community resurgent.
A NEW HEART OF THE HISTORIC DISTRICT
Revitalized casitas and brick façade storefronts along 7th Avenue are shining examples of Ybor City’s rebirth. It all comes together at Hotel Haya. Through careful renovation and reimagining, the iconic past of Ybor and thoughtful new construction join together in a boutique hotel blending reverence for history and optimism for the future.
WHERE INDUSTRY AND ARTISTRY MEET
An eclectic blend of people, cuisines, and cultures. Named for Vicente Martínez e Ybor, these bustling blocks became home to Cuban cigar makers, German printmakers whose box labels became pieces of art, and inspired individuals from all over the globe. Today, Ybor City is an architectural gem, with wrought iron balconies and colorful tile work, standout restaurants and shopping, as well as friendly neighborhood chickens.
