Mainsail Suites Is More Than A Hotel

As the FC Tampa Bay Rowdies geared up for their inaugural season, Mainsail Suites Hotel and Conference Center geared up to house more than 20 players and start one of the most comprehensive and valuable partnerships in league history with the Rowdies.

Mainsail Suites Hotel, who is the exclusive housing partner for the team, is not just a hotel, but also a valued member of the Tampa Bay community. “As an independent hotel we try to get involved in all neighborhood issues and opportunities,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Joe Brown. “From road improvements to helping families with free housing….we try to make a difference in all areas.”

Mainsail’s President, Joe Collier, was named Citizen of the Year for the Upper Tampa Chamber of Commerce after his hard work in helping improve Hillsborough Avenue medians and signage. In addition to being a member of the Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Mainsail Suites Hotel holds a membership with the Tampa Sports Commission and Tampa Bay and Company.

Mainsail Suites Hotel has been serving the Bay area for 11 years. It houses the newest conference center in Tampa with more than 7,000 square feet of meeting space, as well as a terrace perfect for any type of meeting or event. They host several large events throughout the year, including events for The University of Florida’s Division of Continuing Education, CEO Council of Tampa Bay, the Governor’s Summit on the Impact of Chinese Drywall, as well as numerous weddings.

In addition to Mainsail’s superb conference center, their suite style rooms are designed to make visitors feel like home. Whether a visitor is in town for business or leisure, they will feel like they are in their own private condo. Each suite has a full-size kitchen, living/dining room, a patio or balcony as well as one or two bedrooms. They have housed many sports teams for events including the Outback Bowl, NCAA tournaments, United Soccer League Super Y League and all major youth sporting events held at Ed Radice Park. FC Tampa Bay players also reside on-site.

Many people are impressed with the service they receive at the hotel, “the staff is outstanding, always friendly and eager to help,” states a very satisfied guest. Another guest thought that “Check-in was a breeze. [Mainsail] even bent over backwards to accommodate a very late check-out due to one last round of golf!” One guest considers the hotel “truly at the center of it all” with its convenient location to downtown Tampa, Clearwater and St. Pete.

Mainsail Suites Hotel is only a six-minute drive away from the home of the FC Tampa Bay Rowdies, George M. Steinbrenner Field, which makes it a perfect place for any fan coming into town for a Rowdies game.

Brown’s favorite part of the Rowdies tradition is the excitement of fans. He says, “The Rowdies are a recognized brand in Tampa, we see this team gaining fans year over year and that’s why we chose to be a partner.”

Mainsail Suites Hotel will be honored at tonight's game against the Portland Timbers, kicking off at 7:30 p.m.

A wonderful host for any reason! The CEO Council thoroughly was knocked out by the hospitality and quality of the event that Mainsail hosted at their Conference Center. It's a perfect location for a Rowdies event - ENJOY, ALL! JT
