We checked in late Friday night to A friendly desk clerk and great valet parking service it was raining real bad out. Chicken was easy and swift we went to our room which was a lovely elegant older fashion type room. We went there in hopes of watching the fireworks but it was rained out . We enjoyed a nice... More

We stayed at the Terrace Hotel for 4 nights as part of a second visit to Lakeland. We really knew better after the first stay there a few months earlier, but this hotel's location was too good for our travel needs to pass it up. However, this stay was much worse than the previous one and hence warranted this review... More

I am terribly sorry for your trouble. We did replace the sofa bed with a brand new one, which was delivered the day after your departure. Our reaction to your distress could have been significantly better and I apologize for your inconvenience. More

I am pretty easy going as a rule and don't write "terrible" reviews normally, but I really have no choice. I have stayed a the Terrace a number of times when in town on business, as it is very close to the office I visit. I have never been particularly happy, but this last stay was the worst. I had...

I am terribly sorry for the difficulty with your last stay. Lakeland has an extremely low crime rate and in the 16 years that I have been here there has been no violent crime at the hotel at all. I cant do any further investigation with the limited information that I have. I may not be able to convince you... More

Outstanding service great location in downtown Lakeland. 5 star resturaunts in walking distance as well as farmers market just minutes away. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet romantic weekend getaway.

This is an older hotel so I was not expecting it to be 5 stars, but the chips and cracks on the walls, floors, and furniture were unexpected. So was the layer of dust that lined the ceiling of my room. But other than the dust, the room appeared relatively clean and the air conditioner worked great. I think the... More

Stayed on the 9th (top) floor overlooking a parking garage. The view was fine though. The room was pretty small but clean and quiet. There was a refridgerator, safe and coffeemaker in the room with pretty decent coffee. Coffee and muffins downstairs. Ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant. It was expensive and nothing special. There is an active train track... More

Granted, this is a beautiful old hotel and when one stays there, you take this into consideration. However, there should be a bellman on duty when you arrive in the afternoon to help with the luggage, particularly getting the cart going into a tiny elevator that is the same size as the cart. The room was small but clean. There... More

Historic building from the outside, but inside it has some issues. The restaurant area is nice and the food was good as well but the plumbing is not good, the bathrooms were also hot as heck as the AC seemed to be out. Meeting space are rather plain and should be decorated more in the feel of Old Florida, which... More

You arrive at your destination but not sure where to lay your head for the night. Since it's 1924, you probably only have one choice. In today times, I suggest making the choice of staying at this exquisite hotel. It will take you back in time but give you all the luxuries we all desire! We spent Memorial Day weekend... More

I had an excellent experience at the Terrace, Lakeland FL's premier hotel. Everything about the hotel is exceptional, from the room service to valet parking. Recommended to anyone seeking an old style grand hotel experience in a smaller boutique form. Grand restaurant!
