I was so excited to surprise my husband for his birthday with a stay at a new hotel in our hometown of Tampa, the Epicurean Hotel. We've been talking about staying at this hotel for some time! On June 1, the day before our confirmed reservation, I received a phone call from Rhonda at the Epicurean Hotel informing me that... More

Please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconvenience and frustration that this situation created for you and your husband. The last thing we ever want to do is to move one of our guests to another hotel and disrupt their plans. There was an extreme circumstance that occurred and we felt it was best to inform you in advance so... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was nothing short of amazing. The valets immediately greeted us and assisted with our baggage, as our personal concierge met us at the car to personally show us to our room. It was great not having to go to a desk to check in. Very personalized service. The room... More

We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend and really enjoyed our stay! The hotel has a 'wine and food' theme and seems like something you would find in Napa! We were met upon arrival and offered a glass of wine and taken to our room (no formal traditional front desk). On the way to our room, the explained the... More

Stayed here for business twice in 2015. The location is great, walk out the hotel to many great places to eat and drink. Rooms are just the right size. Hit the rooftop bar if you can and happy our in the bar is pretty good. The place just has a good vibe. For breakfast for Marriott elites, you do get... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. Everything was impeccably clean. The beds were Marriott comfortable. Tastefully decorated with a wine theme. Will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Tampa. Smaller scale than most Marriott hotels. Ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Excellent breakfast menu offerings. Right across the street from Ben's steakhouse.

The Epicurean is a beautiful new hotel in the middle of my favorite part of Tampa. Within walking distance to great restaurants and a few miles from downtown. The onsite restaurant is delicious - recommend the "homage to Bern's" steak sandwich. And there is an amazing view from the rooftop bar. Excellent special touches and customer service. Perfect getaway location... More

I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Epicurean Hotel! We love our neighborhood and all it has to offer. Our location was specifically chosen for its proximity to the legendary Bern's Steak House. We are continually inspired by our neighbor and Executive Chef Chad Johnson's "homage to Bern's" is defiantly a favorite at Élevage! Glad... More

When we first looked at the Epicurean as our wedding site, the hotel was still very new into its existence (as in, it wasn’t open yet). While choosing a venue with so little history could create some reservations, Christine Hunter and her team went above and beyond to make our wedding a special event for us. I want to talk... More

All around amazing! Awesome brunch at Élevage Restaurant, great customer service and a must visit wine and spirits shop down stairs. Also, Chocolate Pi has some very tasty desserts!

This is a lovely place to stay. The staff are wonderful. The rooms are wonderful. The restaurant is wonderful. It is also in a busy area of town, but our room was totally quiet. We will definitely stay here again.
