Epicurean Hotel, Autograph Collection

Tampa, Florida

The hotel

As its name implies, food is a big deal at Epicurean Hotel, Autograph Collection. A boutique retreat in South Tampa’s cool SoHo district, you can join professional chefs for cooking classes, tuck into fresh seafood and steaks at Élevage, head up to the rooftop bar for cocktails, small plates, and Tampa views, and even enjoy fresh fruit scrubs, vinotherapy, and mani-pedis in a cork-clad ‘cellar’ at its Spa Evangeline. With the on-site Bern's Fine Wines & Spirits and B&G Little Midway dessert parlor (opening Summer '19), the options to indulge are endless. And, if you need to wear it all off, you can do a few lengths of the outdoor pool, head to the fitness centre, or nip out on one of the hotel’s complimentary bikes (although the tempting locally owned eateries may scupper your calorie-burning plans).

we absolutely loved this special hotel of the Marriott chain. It is so perfectly decorated with a wine theme in the lobby.

we absolutely loved this special hotel of the Marriott chain. It is so perfectly decorated with a wine theme in the lobby. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with clever uses of space, a rainfall shower head, very comfortable mattress and pillows. A wine store, operated by the famous Bern's Steakhouse sits off the lobby and they even pour you a glass of wine as soon as you check in. And here's the best: it is located directly across from Bern's Steak House, an icon for wine enthusiasts who often consume a lot and only have to waddle across the street. And, the hotel has a beautiful tasting theater where they conduct a lot of wine and cooking events throughout the year. I suggest you check out their web site for more information. Although we didn't have time to visit it, there is a rooftop bar. This is an area in transition, so the neighborhood is marginal. Don't expect to walk down the street and shop. Read less

OK - sooooo, if you have already read the numerous glowing reviews, I will not drone on about what has already been said. But, must call out Scotty and Greg (Valet). So Scotty met me at the front end with a cart and assisted me with check-in - due to my Marriott status he offered me a upgrade (Jr Suite), and assisted me up my room with my gear. Scotty’s attention to detail and customer service sets the bar high for anyone else on the property. Greg was kind enough to park my vehicle up front - in order for me to get out quickly just after check-in for a meeting. Property has by far the best Valet (not just Greg - but all of the them).....well done on the property for securing a 3rd Party Vendor that cares so much about the guests (other properties will struggle with Valet....not this property). The Jr Suite is amazing - everything in the room is amazing - and the bathroom (and esp shower) are, well - amazing. Walking distance to plenty of eateries. Hotel dining and bars are incredible. STAY AT THIS HOTEL if you are visiting Tampa! You will not regret it. I will be back!!! Read less

Ryan met us at the car, transported our luggage, checked us in and handed us a glass of wine! Wow! I want to live here. The rooms were immaculate and quiet. Paul, our bartender, was a treat. Professional and very attentive. And he makes a tasty Manhattan. Roof top bar is a great place to relax and enjoy the evening. This is our favorite hotel in… Read more

We had a problem with our reservation (our fault not the hotel’s) and Scottie and Sol were so accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure the issue was fixed with ease and hospitality- and we were offered a delicious glass of wine while they took care of everything! I highly recommend the hotel- the customer service all the way around… Read more
