Big Canoe, Georgia28 contributions7 helpful votes
We were recently passing through Tampa and found this hotel that has an interesting story. Pros- clean, not expensive, had a lot of the old federal building artifacts still in place which added to its charm. It is also within walking distance to the riverwalk and other areas of interest. The bar was nice and clean and the breakfast eatery was staffed with very nice people. Cons- valet service could really be improved. Had to park in the street, no one came to help us when we arrived (even though a younger guy was at the valet stand on his phone) we had to seek out someone who was less than motivated to take care of our things. There were also homeless people on the hotel property in the outside eating area panhandling which was a big turn-off. There is only one elevator and with current covid restrictions, you sometimes had to wait to get on the elevator and back to your room. Overall, nice hotel but probably will not stay there again as there were other options closebywith better overall layout and location.

Just an average hotel. Nothing special. The valet parking is $25 per night. Valet staff was exceptional; great service from those guys. The front desk staff should take lessons from them on customer service. Rooms are just average. The concept is good to reuse an existing federal building but nothing special. Would not stay here again.

Great place, but the mask police were out in an authoritative manner. Very stern and no smiles upon checking in. Room was great no issues there. Felt it could’ve been much better but probably won’t go back. Loved how they kept the old courthouse look and feel with the doors and floors, etc.

This was not my first time staying at Le Meridien Tampa. The property is very nice albeit the rooms are on the smaller side. Other than that, the bed bugs had a field day with my back. Ugh I did explain it to the General Manager who was concerned with my allegations and promised to look back into my observations. I am waiting for his call back with his findings before I send him the pictures taken on 2/9/21 with multiple examples of the unwanted bedbugs.

Thank you for your review and proving your feedback. First and foremost, I am very sorry to hear you were unhappy with your experience. Here at Le Meridien Tampa, we take all complaints seriously and we have procedures and standards in place to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests. Regarding your concern, we do take proactive steps to ensure that each and every room is free of pests of any kind. We hire a professional pest control company to inspect guest rooms weekly and we would be informed immediately of any issues. I have not had any incidents at this property in my 6 years of managing. Our linens are professionally laundered using antimicrobial and disinfectant soaps and chemicals. Our housekeeping team conducts a visual inspection as well and all linens less than perfect are discarded.. I hope this helps ease your mind.. To discuss further, please call the hotel directly and ask to speak to the manager on duty. Thank you and have a great week!

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY THIS IS DECEPTIVE ADVERTISING. EXPEDIA LISTS ONE PRICE BUT YOU END UP PAYING OVER 2X THE PRICE. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE FALSE ADVERTISING- ONE NIGHT IS NOT $165 IT WILL END UP BEING $250. Our stay was not worth $250 a night. The valet was prompt and the staff was nice enough but we're never booking through expedia again because their prices are misleading. This hotel will add city tax, tourism tax and other mysterious charges. The room was way too small, cramped and dormlike for $250 a night. You do not pull up in front of the grand looking structure with columns- that's around the corner. Don't waste your time you'll be getting ripped off.
