Hotel Haya

Hotel Haya is a new boutique hotel minutes from Downtown Tampa in a soulful, historic world all its own. Old Ybor City charm meets modern flair at Haya Hotel. The soul of one of the oldest restaurants gracing 7th Street meets the energy of a neighborhood renaissance, all for your comfort and enjoyment.

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.

Our name honors the roots of Ybor City, carrying the spirit of the founding fathers and cigar artisans who established our neighborhood. We are proud to pay homage to Ignacio Haya whose cigar factory, Haya y Sanchez, was significant for rolling the first cigar in Tampa. Haya was instrumental in building Ybor City alongside another notable cigar manufacturer Vicente Ybor for whom our neighborhood was named. Haya’s factory was one of the first in the nation to make cigars from the light-colored Cuban tobacco called “Clear Havana.”

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.
