Ian Schrager says Tampa is having a moment.

The man behind New York's Studio 54 and the boutique hotel boom of the 1980s admits he's only visited three or four times, but tells Axios that Tampa is on the edge of greatness.

  • "I believe it's Tampa's time now. It's been coming for a while now, and I think Tampa's a great city," he said.
