I really wish I could have given this hotel a better review but I just can't. No internet ($14.95 a day for wifi is outrageous) Another $20.00 a day for valet (There is no parking at this hotel at all unless you valet or park on the street) . Coffee- either make it yourself or pay $5.00 a cup. Bring... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Certainly odd for us and anytime an expectation is not exceeded we want to know. Internet fees are similar or below downtown properties and we have an option below $10 as well. We proudly serve Illy coffee in the rooms as well as our master barista can prepare specialty coffee...

I stayed at Le Méridien for 3 days & 2 nights while getting my daughter settled at UT, and each time I returned to the hotel it was an oasis -- absolutely gorgeous and well-appointed with a friendly, responsive, professional staff. While those three adjectives are spot on, they don't aptly convey the warmth of the people who work at... More

Stayed with a friend recently. Very nice, small room. Clean, quiet, very comfortable bed, even had a nice bar! Service was excellent. The only problem, and this could be just one of those things, is that it took an honest 25 minutes for the valet to get the car. Would stay again

Thank you for the review and kind words! Our valet company is the same with all downtown properties. I will follow up with your comments and we always want to exceed the expectations, starting with valet. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Travel safe! More

Nice, reasonably priced hotel in the heart of Downtown Tampa (we walked to a pizza place for lunch and a great Mediterranean place for dinner). Our room was spacious and clean and we loved that this building is a renovated courthouse. Caroline at the front desk was amazing and the housekeeping staff were also very pleasant. We appreciated and took... More

5 STARS- Great hotel, great location. We stayed only one night for a quick "date night" and we went to the Tampa Theatre (see review) only one block away. There are great bars/restaurants within walking distance. The pool was WONDERFUL.. check out the bakery, have a nice breakfast in the 2nd floor restaurant and check out the cool bar. Pricing...

Le Meridien provided a totally different experience. We chose this hotel because it's a unique historical courthouse, and in close proximity close to the port of our cruise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was packed but the food and service was out of this world. Not cheap, but so worth the cost. Our corner room was... More

We recently stayed at Le Meridien Tampa for one night. We booked two rooms, one for us and one for my parents. We celebrated the parents' 58th anniversary in Bizou restaurant that evening. Being a former courthouse, this hotel is truly an interesting and unique place to stay. Much of the original walls, floors, doors and windows were preserved. Each... More

The stylish Le Meridien hotel is ideally located for all Downtown attractions and transport hub. Some of the old courthouse features have been kept which adds character to the hotel - the old Court Reporter room was opposite my room. The rooms are clean and welcoming. The shower was amazing (compared to the last hotel I stayed in)! I stayed... More

The hotel was fabulous exceeded all our expectation. I would like to thank Steve, our shuttle service driver. He was excellent, keeping us entertained during our drives back and forth from Ybor City. I would go back there again. The only thing I would change is the coffee in the rooms.

We only had a one night stop but this hotel was great. Spacious rooms, clean and well put together. The old courthouse transformation was done right and I'm glad it was as opposed to tearing the thing down and rebuilding something else. We were on the fourth floor and could hear other people talking through the vent in the bathroom.... More
