Oldsmar dishes the dirt for hotel number five
Oldsmar dishes the dirt for hotel number five

Oldsmar’s City Council members joined developer Paul Simone and Upper Tampa Bay Chamber members in breaking ground for Oldsmar’s 5th hotel on Nov. 30. 

Chamber President Jerry Custin kicked off the event by pointing out that, “Paul has led the hospitality industry in Oldsmar.  He opened our first hotel in May of 2001 and came back in 2007 with a Hilton Garden Inn as part of a major development project and now is developing his third project in the city, a Hampton Inn and Suites.  We’re here to support Paul and thank him for his vision and confidence in our city as a great place for business.” 

Simone said he expects to open in February 2013 and offer something that we don’t currently have - a mid-sized conference center. 

The Hampton Inn will be a six-story structure with 112 rooms that includes fifty suites.  It will boast an approximate 4,000 square foot conference room with nearly 3,000 square feet of pre-conference area and spacious 16 foot ceilings. It will be able to host 300 to 350 guests. 

“This is our first hotel product on the north side of Tampa Road and not directly in our designated Town Center area. That’s a very positive sign for our economy and a definite plus for our community,” said Mayor Jim Ronecker.
