Best Hotels in Tampa Bay
A touch of luxury and a taste of history in a landmark building.
A welcome luxury addition to the Tampa hotel scene, Le Meridien effortlessly merges historical ambience with contemporary amenities and stellar service. Unusually sited in a former federal courthouse that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel is in a convenient location, offering access to Tampa’s many vibrant cultural attractions, art galleries and museums, as well as nearby Ybor City and Channelside. Careful renovations have preserved the building’s original 1920s architectural details while bringing the overall guest experience solidly into the 21st century. The 130 rooms and suites feature sleek modern furnishings and sophisticated monochromatic décor, as well as amenities such as 42-inch TVs, mini-fridges and high-end bedding. A romantic atmosphere and excellent French fare establish on-site Bizou Brasserie as one of Tampa’s most popular upscale restaurants. The swimming pool is a small but nice added touch.
