Quiet and relaxing
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Nice stay for two nights, paid about $150 per night for a standard king.
Downtown Tampa is sleepy but the hotel has a fair amount of restaurants and nightlife nearby.
Comfy bed, high ceilings. Friendly, efficient checkin. Very cool renovation of an old federal courthouse.

Gasparilla perfection

The best place to secure for Gasparilla, location, quality food and drinks, but especially location. Old hotel, the old courthouse building, amazing time. The staff was very courteous and the restaurant food was some of the best too. Friday Happy Hour had a beautiful crowd

Best place to stay in Tampa.

The hotel is located in the 107 year old former Federal Court building which gives the place a unique and charming character. Nevertheless everything is perfectly refurbished and modern. The staff at Front Desk, Valet Parking and in the restaurant is very nice and attentive. My room was not cleaned on the first day of my stay by housekeeping which may have originated from my very late check-in at 2am in the morning. Anyhow I definitely recommend to stay here when in Tampa.

You will fall in love with Le Meridien.

The building! The staff! The macaroons! There is so much to love about this place. Let's start with the building. This place is incredible. A historic gem that wows at every turn. Once a bustling courthouse, now a completely charming place to stay and, in our case, host a conference.

Now, about that friendly, helpful staff... They were supreme. Whatever we needed, they took care of. From wi-fi to meeting room set-up to transportation to restaurant recommendations, they were always willing to help and always smiling. Brigid and Monica checked on us regularly to make sure everything was going well. Meanwhile, Ivan took care of our every banquet/meeting room need, including cleaning up my accidental water spill (Sorry, Ivan!) and delivering us some pens in the middle of a session. And the fabulous front desk people made my day every day. (Thank you LaLithia, Anita, and Nanette!)

The rooms are cozy and comfy, and the illy coffee tasted just like Italy. I have never wanted to take a hotel coffee maker home with me-- until I stayed here.

We had never hosted a conference in Tampa before but thanks to Le Meridien, we are itching to go back!

Did I mention that this gem of a hotel is steps away from the Tampa Art museum? So great! I wish I took more/better photos, but I guess I was just too busy enjoying myself. :)

A nice surprise!

As we searched for a nice hotel in Tampa, Florida, I must admit I was unaware and unprepared for Le Meridien. The hotel is located in an old courthouse. The building’s entrance is grand and elegant. The lobby, although its decor could be much improved, had beautiful wood paneled ceilings. The hallways were wide and over 15 feet in height, as you would expect from a courthouse. The floors were the original stone and therefore had no carpeting, a Godsend for my husband who is wheelchair-bound. The regular rooms were spacious and well equipped, classic and subdued, but not spartan. The bathroom mirror was, surprisingly my favorite fixture in the room since it was decorated with a translucent opaque white band which contained case numbers which may have been tried at the courthouse. Finally, all the conference rooms were named after a part of the legal process, for example: the Verdict Room. I found that unusual and interesting.

Kudos to the Le Meridien parent company and architects for making the most of a landmark and embellishing it for us to enjoy now. Although pricey, it was nice surprise.
