We wanted an evening at Berns, so researched a hotel within walking distance. Wanted to be able to eat and drink without having to travel and Epicurean was the perfect find. We have travelled the world first class all our lives. Had a lovely walk and returned to the hotel about 2PM for an incredible brunch/tasting experience overseen by Tiffany... More

I am so happy to hear your reservation at Bern's brought you to us! Our relationship with Bern's Steak House is one which we hold close. We consider ourselves the perfect destination for anyone who considers themselves a "foodie". From top to bottom we have one focus : Good food and drink. Thank you for sharing your stay with us...

Prepare to enjoy a fantastic culinary and wine experience when you stay at the Epicurean. We were greeted by a friendly, iPad toting associate who whisked us up to the room. Furnishings are very clever and functional along with a well thought out bathroom. While we were only here a night, we will be back to experience the spa and... More

I just love hearing from our guests who discovered us through their love of Bern's Steak House. The Epicurean Hotel's main mission is to educate and share with the public all the culinary world has to offer. Our location, just across the street from Bern's Steak House, is no mistake.

This hotel is awesome, but the rooms though are by no means luxurious, but in a town with no Ritz Carlton or JW this is as good as Marriott gets. That said, the rooms are trendy, clean and well appointed. The hallway leading up to your room is cooking themed and so is the property. The amenities are nice (pool,... More

Luxury and fine dining make the Epicurean the perfect place for a wedding weekend. Lovely rooms and all of the amenities you could want, including a pool, spa, restaurant, and fitness area. The food is amazing, and that alone warrants an overnight stay!

My wife and I stayed here while in town for a concert and loved it. Service was excellent, check in process was fantastic -- someone meets you at your car with a tablet and checks you in while walking you to the room after pouring you a glass of wine. The hotel is stylish and chic. The bedding was sooooo... More

After reading the glowing reviews of this hotel on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay at the Epicurean hotel on a recent visit to Tampa. Epicurean is no doubt trying to stay on trend but they are missing some basic training - you can have all the fancy bells and whistles in the world but if you don't have good old-fashioned... More

we happened upon this place as we were so disappointed with our orignal hotel near the convention center. Our luck changed once we moved to Epicurean. So inviting and they didn't miss a touch....walking us to our room, having 4 splits of interesting wine (that you could buy) in the room. A lovely room with nice walkway to pool...whihc again...

What a gorgeous, hip, creative, beautifully well designed property. Great rooms with patios, rooftop bar with incredible hand mixed cocktails ( get the cheese plate) and a to die for restaurant that serves fresh local ingredients with creative flair.

Isn't the Truffle Mac and Cheese fantastic? Our Executive Chef Chad Johnson just loves making comfort food gourmet!

I chose this hotel for a recent overnight visit to Tampa for several reasons. First, because of its great location (Hyde Park), second because it was a boutique hotel, and third because it catered to foodies. I found that particularly intriguing.
