Wedding Venue Wednesday: Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay

Our Special Moments Event Planning team loves of monthly Wedding Venue Wednesday blog feature. It lets us feature some incredible Tampa Bay wedding venues, fabulous destination weddings, and honeymoon ideas.

When it comes to incredible Tampa Bay waterfront wedding venues, most people head to the beach. Obviously, the region is known for its amazing Gulf Coast beaches. But this month, we are sharing an incredible wedding venue that’s not on the gulf coast but still offers impressive waterfront views and a private beach.

The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay is an incredible wedding venue that somehow manages to fly under the radar for many people.


The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay

For starters, the property is located minutes, less than three miles, from Tampa International Airport. What could be easier for your wedding guests? Additionally, the hotel places them halfway between downtown Tampa and the beaches along the gulf coast if they want to extend their stay after the wedding.

Beyond the location, the hotel offers you and your wedding guests 444 guest rooms with 24 suites. Guests can relax in the resort-like hotel along Tampa’s waterfront with a boardwalk, boat dock, and a private beach. Not to mention two swimming pools, a StayFit Fitness Center, and two restaurants.

A hotel with incredible guest experiences leads to amazing wedding experiences. The hotel’s newly renovated event spaces make it easy to accommodate weddings of 10 to 550 people.

Whether you are planning an intimate gazebo wedding ceremony or a wedding weekend hosting a rehearsal dinner, wedding, and post-wedding brunch, the Hyatt can accommodate your needs.

Be sure to ask about the availability of the hotel’s Bay View Presidential Suite for you and your wedding party to get ready. With huge windows offering panoramic views of Tampa Bay, it’s the perfect location for hair and makeup and to spend time with your wedding party on the big day.

The hotel’s waterfront property and docks also makes for some incredible wedding portraits, some of our favorites!

The culinary team at the resort is pretty impressive. Whether you are looking to feature the flavors of Tampa or something healthy and organic, the culinary team has you covered. The chefs are always happy to work with you and your family to customize your menus, and the food is delicious.

Hyatt’s motto is “We care for people so they can be their best” and motivate everything they do. It’s why so many people book with them!

Beyond weddings, our Special Moments Event Planning team had the opportunity to work with the Grand Hyatt hosting the international conference for the Association of Bridal Consultants. We loved the multiple meeting spaces, incredible food, and the friendly, helpful staff.
