About Le Meridien

Le Meridien is a historic, full-service hotel and wedding venue located in Tampa, Florida. The century-old Federal Courthouse was renovated into a stunning facility that’s a part of the National Register of Historic Places and is the only 4 Diamond designation in the downtown area. You and your guests will be just steps away from some of the city’s best attractions, shopping, bars, and restaurants. Additionally, the hotel is near the Tampa Cruise Port, Raymond James Stadium, Amalie Arena, and more.

The elegant hotel has four different event spaces both inside and outside that can be used for your wedding ceremony or reception. The Courthouse Ballroom is the largest space with a total of 2,201 square feet and the ability to host up to 130 guests. The huge windows that span from the floor to the ceiling allow for tons of natural light and showcase panoramic city views. The outdoor pool and large gathering area make a fun spot to host your cocktail hour before heading into the ballroom for your reception. The venue features a wide variety of distinct art that creates an inspiring environment for you and your loved ones. In addition to a ceremony and reception, the hotel has the ability to provide services for an engagement party, bridal shower, and rehearsal dinner.

    Our Perfect Wedding Day

    Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more. Brigid and her team were amazing from start to finish. We enjoyed working with her so much! Le Meridien exceeded our expectations and gave us the most perfect wedding. Our guests are still talking about how unique and beautiful the venue is and how great the food was. The hotel was a great place for our family and guests to stay. We loved the bridal suite and the convenience of staying and getting ready on site was a huge factor in our selection of Le Meridien. We were able to do a lot of custom details to make the day a true reflection of the couple that we are, it felt like the possibilities were endless. Planning was a breeze with Brigid. She was responsive, helpful and so friendly! Our ceremony on the front steps was so unique, cocktail hour by the pool was intimate and the ballroom reception was absolutely beautiful and perfectly executed to our exact vision. My husband, parents and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Le Meridien and highly recommend it as a wedding venue for couples are looking for a downtown, city feeling wedding with a historic but modern Tampa element.

    My wedding venue

    I could not have imagined a more beautiful, natural backdrop for our wedding day. The historic Le Meridien’s Bisou marble walls were the key element in the design theme for our wedding, and the courthouse steps are a sight to behold. It was the perfect setting for our wedding, the bar and restaurant were intimate, but large enough to accommodate all of our guests, and the courthouse steps with grand columns made for the most beautiful ceremony backdrop. Brigid in Catering was a dream to work with, and the entire staff did an amazing job, not only servicing the wedding, but helping to keep our surprise wedding a secret! I would highly recommend using this unique venue for an event, and I look forward to working with them again.
