We first noticed the minarets of this building when we visited Tampa's art museum. They certainly make for an interesting and unique city skyline! They are part of what once was the Tampa Bay Hotel, built in 1891 by Henry Plant. The hotel has been touted as "Florida's First Magic Kingdom".
We had to step out of the museum and enter the rooms of the university to see the rest of the hotel, I will save that part of our tour for the next posting.
