Tampa Bay Resort Lends a Hand to Local Businesses with Rentable Retail Spaces

Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Provides Retail Space on Tampa Bay Waterfront


TAMPA BAY, FLA (November 16th, 2020) - Tampa resort, Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Tampa, is helping out local businesses with retail space during these difficult times. Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit, the waterfront hotel has noticed a hardship placed on businesses and vendors who have had to close down shops due to the financial toll of the statewide shutdown. In response, the Godfrey Hotel has decided to offer up its various banquet rooms as rentable retail spaces. 


Businesses can now rent out the event spaces on a month to month basis. Each space will have high-speed internet access, ample parking for customers, and foot traffic from the restaurant and attached eatery on the weekends. In addition to being located on the busy street of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, businesses will also be supported through the resort’s marketing channels including social media and email newsletters. The Godfrey Hotel will have two rooms available at a time: Chartroom East (784 sq. ft.) and Chartroom West (952 sq. ft.). Renters can also request both spaces for a combined square footage of 1,736 sq. ft.
