Description
The Tampa Bay Hotel was built by railroad magnate Henry B. Plant, beginning in 1888, at a cost of over 2.5 million dollars. During its operating period from 1891 to 1930, the hotel housed thousands of guests, including hundreds of celebrities. When the Spanish-American War broke out, Plant convinced the United States military to use his hotel as a base of operations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_B._Plant_Museum
