We've long been fans of the Epicurean Hotel, a 137-room boutique property in Tampa’s trendy South Howard (SoHo) district. This cozy spot, located steps from a bevy of great restaurants and bars, features a state-of-the-art culinary classroom, spa, custom Electra bikes for rent, rooftop lounge and an onsite restaurant, Élevage, which features comfort foods with haughty twists created by James Beard Semi-Finalist, Executive Chef Chad Johnson.

The Epicurean Hotel recently announced Fl Resident summer rates at a 20% discount off the best available rate, which means you can spend the night in the $139-159 rate range.


Those making plans to head to this foodie-centric hotel might considering arranging a Sunday evening overnight so you'll be able to join in the festivities during the hotel's weekly Splash Sundays party.

This upscale summer pool party series spanning 15 Sundays from May 31 through September 6, 2015 features delicious handcrafted cocktails and open air grilled goodness plus a variety of entertainment including live bands and Push DJs.
