Henry Flagler had this built in 1891 during the first building boom in Tampa. Flagler chose as architect J. A. Wood. Flagler had already built the Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine. The Tampa Bay Hotel was meant to surpass everything else in exotic luxury. The Alhambra was thought to be inspiration for it. The most prominent motif is that of the ogee or horseshoe arch. It is seen over window and door openings, in the trellis trim for verandas, and in the turrets which, whether round or square in plan, are ogee in section. Now part of the University of Tampa, the monolithic, polished stone columns and carved wooden balustrades are still in place, but much else in the interior was changed when the hotel was renovated for use as a university. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
