Foodies rave about hotel's restaurant, Élevage
Nightly room rates are high

If memorable culinary experiences are what you're after, this is the place for you. After checking in and surveying your digs, outfitted with flat-screen TVs, luxury bath products and an in-room pantry, enjoy a meal at Élevage. Helmed by executive chef Chad Johnson, a 2014 James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef, the restaurant prides itself on its imaginative twists on fare from around the world. If you're looking for innovative cocktails, this Autograph Collection outpost has you covered there, too: The hotel houses a rooftop bar with handcrafted drinks and tapas. Once you've satisfied your taste buds, indulge in a treatment at Spa Evangeline. Should all the wining and dining make you yearn for a little more activity, you can work up a sweat at the fitness center or rent a bike to explore the South Tampa district. Though some travelers criticized the steep nightly rates here, thanks to the property's Marriott ties, you can offset the price of your stay if you participate in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

Brought to you in part by the people at Bern's Steak House (which happens to be across the street), this vibrant, cuisine-centric installment of Marriott's Autograph Collection is an absolute must for foodies, but it doesn't make nonfoodies feel left out. Food and wine inspire everything here, even the decor: a butcher-block table lines the wall in each room, for example.

Fodor's Choice



Located in the old Hyde Park area, the hotel boasts an urban chic decor with a flair for epicurean tastes, as the name suggests. Room decor is a mix of repurposed industrial with a culinary influence.
