ampa-based Mainsail Lodging & Development has announced a late fall opening for The Karol Hotel (2675 Ulmerton Road), the first Tribute Portfolio hotel in Pinellas County, Florida. Centrally located in Feather Sound between Clearwater, St. Pete and Tampa, the new boutique hotel will feature 123 guest rooms and suites; a signature lobby bar and restaurant; a rooftop bar overlooking Tampa Bay; a combined 7,340 square feet of event space, including a ballroom and executive conference rooms; and a resort-style pool and fitness center. Marketed by Mainsail Lodging & Development, the hotel is named for and inspired by Karol Kelly Bullard, "Miss Karol K," wife of Fred Bullard, CEO of The Bullard Group, which is developing the property.

Fred and Karol Bullard are two of Feather Sound's, and Florida's, most notable duos, known for living lives full of adventure, business, philanthropy, family, love and dinners with presidents. When presented the opportunity to build a hotel, as Chairman and CEO of The Bullard Group, Fred knew it would be an homage to Karol.

Celebrating the serendipity that first brought Karol and Fred together, The Karol will be the ornament of Feather Sound, where their timeless personality and style, Florida roots, and unique story combine to create a perfect backdrop for wonderful things to come.

The new boutique hotel will feature 123 guest rooms and suites dressed in a rich and pleasing palette of white marble, tawny beige, gray, and bold accents of clear Florida sky blue carpet with an abstracted feather motif. Guests of The Karol Hotel will also have ample options to explore their culinary curiosity, from the signature K Club Bar & Bistro to the Vantage Rooftop Bar overlooking Tampa Bay. Located just off the coast of the Bay, The Karol Hotel is 15 minutes from Tampa's Westshore Business District and Tampa International Airport, making it a perfect option for business and leisure travelers alike.
