First I'd like to start by saying I would give this hotel 3 1/2 stars. My husband and I stayed here for one night on a recent weekend trip to Tampa for the Gasparilla half marathon. We spent a lot of time near the convention center area and this hotel is very close to the action. Definitely a great location.... More

The worst hotel i ever been to. The people are rude and the service is not there number one priority. The outside is dirty and trash everywhere. No carts for your luggage so you have to carry everything up stairs. The room was dusty and the window needed a good wash. I do not recommend this hotel to no one.... More

First of all this is a really nice property. It is clean and the furniture is vintage looking but very clean. They have obviously spent a great deal of money on renovations. The people were very friendly and helpful so it seems they have taken care of that little problem. They have shampoo soap and lotion now as well. The... More

It still looked like the hotel was going through renovations and it was not as nice as I thought from the pictures. Room was decent size. Bed and pillows were hard as a rock. It was so uncomfortable. I went to use the gym and it was a joke. First, the gym consisted of 1, yes 1 treadmill, and 1... More

The staff at the front desk was not friendly or professional. The rate of the room was extremely high for what was offered. We had issues with the hot water temperature and pressure and when we addressed issue with front desk they said maintenance was working on and offers no apology or even a slight care that we had a...

We were in Tampa to visit my son who lives there and works at night in downtown. He wanted us near and had heard what a good job was done renovating the property. We checked in and the toilet which is right near the bed kept running. I called front desk, the response was"I'll see if can get someone to... More

This property under went a complete renovation in 2012 and it shows. Every surface has been refreshed. The rooms were very nicely appointed with period furniture and had an elegant feel. The bathrooms were roomy and the shower enclosures were done in a rich stone. My complaints about the room were all bathroom oriented. There were no hooks to hang... More

My husband and I stayed here for the night last Valentine's day. The property is beautiful and the service started off on the right foot. The parking attendants were polite and helpful (we checked in before our dinner). However, I did purposely book a room asking for a King but they were "out." I could understand this (it was Valentine's... More

This is a wonderful and charming hotel. Located right next to the courthouse and near the Franklin Street walking area, the Floridan Palace combines charm, location, and the friendliest staff you could ask for as well as an excellent restaurant. I considered the big chain hotels nearby, but this was an experience instead of a hotel stay. The rooms are... More

Ornate entrance and lobby area, area around the elevators on the floor I was on need some upgrades, room was nice enough. I found it impossible to get the temperature just where I wanted it so I just turned it off and personally, I didn't like the sheet and bed cover (I missed a comforter). I only used the bar... More
