The 8-story hotel has been under construction for about 8 months. It is in the former Mercantile Bank building, on the corner of Kennedy Boulevard and Ashley Drive.

Hotel management say they hope the hotel becomes a community destination. There is an infinity pool, overlooking the Hillsborough River. There will be live bands on Monday and Friday nights and a D.J. on Thursday nights. The café will be open 24 hours day and is open to the public.

The group that owns the hotel, Tampa-based Liberty Group, also is trying to buy the troubled Channelside shopping complex.
