Former Hogan's Beach restaurant renamed as adjoining hotel drops Best Western

TAMPA — The new owners of the Courtney Campbell Parkway hotel that was home to the Hogan's Beach restaurant said this week the property will no longer be affiliated with Best Western and would be an independent "upscale lifestyle hotel."

The 261-room hotel, formerly called the Best Western Bay Harbor, will now be called just the Bay Harbor Hotel, according to Oxford Capital Group, which bought the hotel for $34.5 million earlier this week.

The 20,000-square-foot adjoining restaurant and bar area will be named Beach Bar | Restaurant. Wrestler Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, until recently licensed his name and image to the restaurant.

Oxford Capital has released few details about plans for the hotel beyond the name change. Real estate investor Ben Mallah, who sold the property to Oxford, has said the company plans renovations.
