Aloft-Element Tampa Midtown

Midtown Tampa – The highly anticipated Marriott Aloft-Element is brand-new to Midtown—Tampa’s hottest new destination and offers two hotels in one gorgeous property.  Aloft-Element boasts over 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor banquet space and features panoramic views of the Tampa-St. Pete skyline from our Skyline Ballroom and the lively rooftop Sal Y Mar (Salt & Sea) Restaurant and Lounge.  The modern, light-filled Aloft and eco-friendly, all-suite Element will spoil your guests (including the 4-legged kind) with 226 combined rooms, a rooftop pool, an over-sized fitness center, the WXYZ Bar, and Live Music; all situated in vibrant Midtown and close to the airport, restaurants, and shopping.

The Ceremony:

Your ceremony can take place in either of the adjoining Daybreak or Sunset rooms.  After the ceremony, guests can mingle for cocktails in the spacious and open Horizon Hall or Skydeck Terrace before dining and dancing in the beautiful Skyline Ballroom.  

If you’d prefer fresh air for your wedding, you can decide to say your vows poolside on the rooftop with a view, or in the green area adjacent to the hotel.

The Reception:

Spectacular views await in the enchantingly elegant Skyline Ballroom.  Enjoy sunlight streaming in through floor to ceiling windows or a glimmering cityscape after dusk. 

  • The ballroom accommodates up to 160 guests.
  • Events typically begin after 5:00 pm and end by 1:00 am.  Pricing for banquet-plated meals or buffets is dependent on your customized, chef-created selections.  
  • The reception rental fee is waived once the minimum food and beverage is met.  Receptions include welcome signage, house centerpieces, corner bar(s), 72” round tables (white linens standard), all dinnerware, cake table, and cake cutting.

Savings Tip:  Hold your reception on a Friday or Sunday night to take advantage of 10% lower pricing.

The Cocktail Hour:

The Horizon Hall, Skydeck Terrace or poolside are ideal places for your guests to gather and enjoy a cocktail before dinner. Passed appetizers, display boards or buffets are all customized to your wishes and budget.  Let the team also help you create a signature cocktail for your guests to try!

Food and Drink:

From large, elaborate receptions to smaller intimate celebrations, we work in close partnership with you to customize your special day and personalize your menu and event details to fit your ideal vision. Our combined team of catering and event planning professionals will provide the highest level of food quality and service to delight and impress your guests.  Food and beverage minimums start at $7,500 and vary by day of week and month of the year.

What Couples Love About Us:

Aloft-Element is a brand new, pristine property with a modern design suited to today’s styles and living.  Couples appreciate that their guests have so many options right outside the hotel doors including shopping, dining or a lakeside stroll.  Guests are also grateful we welcome pets and even pamper them with their own treat bag.

Brides especially love our Hospitality Suite.  With 4 adjoining bedrooms opening to a shared common lounge, it’s the perfect place for bridal parties or families to get ready together before the big event.

We are extremely flexible with how we innovatively use our spaces and create unique food and beverage options.  Our goal is to ensure every couple experiences the wedding they envision and a wonderfully memorable event.
