How to Get There
A renovated federal courthouse and what a gorgeous place! Very unique with such a welcoming staff. Exceptionally clean rooms with a free shuttle service we utilized to attend a concert at Amalie Arena. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay again. Very convenient to many downtown fun locations.
I’m Marriott Ambassador Elite. I had never stayed here and figured I would give it a try. I won’t be going back. Valet parked. Service was really slow. I booked room on the app and when I arrived they had somehow cancelled my stay and emailed me an invoice for zero dollars. It took front desk 10 minutes to correct their mistake. Exterior of building is beautiful. Lobby did not match the grandeur of exterior. Very small lobby with low ceilings. Our room was very average. I would have been disappointed in this hotel if the rate would have been $150 but I paid over $350 for one night. That is an absurd price for a weekend stay at this hotel. There are so many other options in town where you can have a better chance of getting your money’s worth. Such a beautiful old building , this hotel could have been special but the opportunity was squandered.
My wife and I stayed at Le Méridien Tampa (Category five Marriott hotel) for a relaxing weekend in Tampa. The hotel is interesting with plenty of character since it is a converted formal federal courthouse. I found myself in contact with a number of hotel employees and Le Méridien did a good job selecting empathetic, courteous, and knowledgeable employees. I’ll note Lenin the maintenance man on duty when we had our coffee machine problem who particularly impressed me.
That said we were disappointed with the room cleanliness, quality of the linens, the noisy refrigerator and room coffee machine. In the pics you’ll notice a sample of areas in disrepair and uncleanliness. Probably the most disappointing was the poor quality of linens. The bed was immensely uncomfortable because there was no fitted sheet to keep the mattress pad, which also didn’t fit the mattress, in place. All of the towels were threadbare and worn particularly the shredded one in the picture. The fridge was noisy but easily remedied by turning it off since we didn’t use it. The first coffee machine didn’t operate properly but Lenin took good care of that. I don’t personally prefer an espresso coffee maker for a hotel room application. I find the machines too temperamental to be consistently reliable and barely worth the effort for maybe 3 ounces of coffee out of them.
Overall this was a disappointing stay for a nearly $300 a night category 5 Marriott room. I would encourage anyone considering this hotel to keep shopping.
The history of this renovated courthouse turned hotel is amazing. So much of the original courthouse remains including the marble staircase, trim, etc. The hallways leading to the rooms are extremely wide. It was exciting to think that we were possibly sleeping in a judges chamber. The room was also very nicely done.
Customer service was excellent. They were extremely helpful when asking about nearby places to eat and other questions. Also offered is a shuttle that will take you to nearby hotpots. They took us to the Aquarium.
The only negative is that because of the large hallways, the acoustics allow for every creak, noise, etc to be amplified. In other words, it was loud.
Overall it was a wonderful experience that we would love to recreate on our next trip to Tampa.
The floor in my bathroom was sticky like a disgusting old bar- my shoes have been sticky since. My room was on the second floor near the kitchen, and it smelled horrible both in my room and in the hallway. The gym was very dirty with dirt clumps and hair all over the floor. This is the worst upkeep of a Marriott property I've ever experienced, which is too bad because the building itself is cool.
