Le Meridien Tampa
Ranked #20 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2017

Have now started using the Meridien as my default hotel in Tampa after a trip in May, the hotel is Downtown and is the Old Courthouse which is quite cool. The rooms are new and well decorated, in fact the whole place is very good for Tampa. Staff are brilliant and the only warning is to call down in advance for your vehicle if you have valet parked (as the parking lot is a distance away and the boys take some time). Hotel is highly recommended and the bar and restaurant are also very good. Brilliant and friendly staff.

Room Tip: quieter rooms are upstairs (I think)

We loved this place! Talk about unique and interesting. Even though the arrival is on the "side" of the building, you feel like you're walking into a professional building, not a hotel. The flier of the interesting facts about the hotel make it all the more fun. Reminded me of old downtown Chicago offices. Our room on the 4th floor was a full-window view and quaintly appointed. I had a chance to see in a room without floor to ceiling windows and it looked tight. The hallways are marble with no carpeting until you get to your room. Internet (for me) was spotty, but husband-who also had an iPhone-had no issues. Yes, I black-lit the room and EXTREMELY clean. Very close to a CVS, but surrounding area a concern and I wish I had known.

We stayed for three nights while visiting family and found it to be a quality hotel. We really loved the historic building and the features that went along with it! The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was very convenient. I used the gym twice and it was nice to use. We didn't see what other rooms looked like but we only had a very tiny window that basically just looked against a wall. It wasn't much of an issue but it just made me feel a bit claustrophobic. Also our carpet was very dirty when we arrived and it appeared they forgot to vacuum. But overall, we would certainly recommended the hotel.

We stayed here the night before a cruise. I would have gladly stayed more nights!!
Very interesting hotel--converted court house. I missed the tour; many things from the court house were kept in tact. The rooms were beautifully renovated: modern and comfortable flair. It was quiet. The staff were exceptional!! They offer a free shuttle within 3 miles...worked out perfectly to get to the cruise terminal :)
The coffee bar, bar/lounge, and restaurant were very good. The fitness center had great equipment and was a good size.

Thank you for taking the time to review and most important, your loyalty! So many unique features that separate our iconic hotel from the rest. Location is just one! Discovery Moments throughout to explore and create an experience just not a stay.

The most rewarding comments are those that revolve around our award winning associates!
