First phase of Oxford’s Bay Harbor Hotel’s multi-million dollar repositioning completed

Published on : Monday, February 13, 2017

Harbour Bay HotelTampa’s Bay Harbor Hotel has completed the first phase of a multi-million dollar transformation into a seaside haven. Chicago-based Oxford Capital Group, LLC through its management affiliate, Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC, acquired the property in late 2015 with the intention of reinventing the hotel and beach front complex as a coastal-chic, full-service lifestyle hotel & resort and selected global design firm The Gettys Group to help achieve the vision.

 

With the completion of phase 1, fifteen additional guestrooms were added which include hardwood floors, custom contemporary furnishings, frameless glass-enclosed walk-in showers and backlit LED mirrors.

 

A sense of tranquility and openness is achieved in the new lobby through use of luxurious, yet laid-back, finishes and furnishings including Italian tile, coastal lounge furniture and nautical accents. With ample space for lounging, business work stations and a gift shop, Bay Harbor Hotel guests now have options to suit any need.

 

Beach Bar | Restaurant, Bay Harbor Hotel’s indoor/outdoor waterside restaurant is virtually unrecognizable as the former “Hogan’s Beach”. Gone are bright red and yellow walls and furnishings. Instead, relaxed island-style spaces in calming hues conjure sensations of Key West, but with a healthy dose of the urban sophistication that is the hallmark of Oxford Hotels & Resorts.

 

Fully capitalizing on its Old Tampa Bay views, the best sunsets in Tampa and a private 3200 sq. ft. pier, Bay Harbor’s exterior improvements included the addition of lounge seating areas surrounding fireplaces, sumptuous cabanas, new poolside furniture, new hardscapes, cable rail balconies allowing panoramic views and a soft-blue building facade.

 

All meeting and special event rooms have been outfitted with new fixtures, furniture and carpets, maintaining the overall coastal-chic aesthetic of the rest of the resort.

 

Crystal Rivera, Bay Harbor’s General Manager said that, as a longtime resident of Tampa, he has known this property for many years and feel privileged to be part of its transformation into an upscale, lifestyle oriented seaside resort. He always had a real appreciation for the beauty of the hotels along South Beach and am thrilled to carry a bit of that magic into Bay Harbor Hotel in Tampa.
