A stately building turned chic hotel. The lobby bar is quite pleasant, with various seating arrangments for privacy or more active circulation. The cheese plater is particularly fine, you may have to ask for more bread. The historic main federal court room is now the lobby restaraunt.

Stayed here with the govt discount as we were visiting MacDill AFB. what a lovely, well restored historic property. It's closeness to the back gate and plenty of places to eat made it a grand alternative to the hotels by the mall.

Let me preface with the fact that the stay was so good this hotel knocked my previous Tampa favorite hotel, Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, to second position. That being said, the stay had a few difficulties and a rocky start. We arrived just a tad late for check-in time as it was already dark. However we accidentally arrived on the... More

Stayed here for one night and absolutely loved the place. Very unique place since the hotel is a transformed century-old federal court house. Contemporary design elements from Le Meridien are so organically incorporated into the interior of an old federal building that I felt sort of caught in between two time periods. Very elegant Latitude bar area, separated from the... More
