A perfect location for a wedding
First, the hotel is super FAB - Ybor Chic. A modern take with so much history in the hotel. A great location with so much to do - especially after a wedding rehearsal and wedding weekend.Sent on 03/30/2021
Second, the food is Amazing! Chef does an awesome job upscaling all the local fare, plus his creations are incredible. The event menus are more than enough - Chef is also willing to customize. We have been several times prior and post the wedding for tastings and dinner and it is simply wonderful. We also had brunch the day after for all our guests who stayed. Great menu and even better cocktails.
Last but NOT least, I couldn't have gotten through the weekend without Morgan. She was there for EVERYTHING we needed. We spent months planning together - she was there through the entire event weekend. Her countless hours she spent are to be commended.
This was an incredible place to have a beautiful wedding - Pablo and Morgan make you feel like family - very personal - very special.

From start to finish Hotel Haya was amazing to work with. Pablo was so kind and caring about us having our wedding there and Morgan was so amazing and easy to work with not to add all the staff is so nice and friendly! I couldn’t imagine having my wedding anywhere else, the architecture and design of this hotel is perfect and the food is amazing! I had my wedding shower, rehearsal dinner and my wedding here and if I had to do it all over again I would choose Haya every time!Sent on 02/09/2021
