Epicurean

1207 S. Howard Ave., Tampa, Florida, 33606, United States

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. There are minibars in each room, and they contain higher-end snacks and wines (but note the prices; a raid on this minibar can cost as much as the room itself). At the heart of the resort is the Epicurean Theatre, which offers guests a chance to take part in world-class cooking and cocktail-making courses. The on-site restaurant, Elevage, is an entity unto itself, offering vintage dishes reimagined with a modern twist. The rooftop bar, Edge, offers some intelligent beverage options. Also on-site is Chocolate Pi, a patisserie, and a wineshop courtesy of Bern's.
