Yes, it is unusual to have a hotel in this building. It feels like a public courthouse still. It isn't a five star hotel in terms of luxury. But I was really invigorated by the creativity in turning it into a hotel and I would reward the final result with five stars. I was extremely pleased with the size of my room (and the very tall ceilings). I was grateful for the hospitality I received upon check in. I appreciated the excellent valet (and the fact that during key hours, street parking is absolutely free). And most of all, I LOVED the breakfast experience I had, starting with the warm welcome from Charlie - she could make anyone feel like they were on top of the world. And her team clearly loves her. The Cappucino I had was outstanding and the bagel and lox were extraordinary and well priced with generous portions. I just loved it - the perfect end to a perfect stay. The rates were outstanding and I would return in a Tampa Bay Minute.
