Stayed there for a night on our trip back to Detroit from Key West, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. Booked this hotel because it was advertised as historic and price is reasonable. So surprised that downtown is so dead, a handful of people walking, nothing going on except for some panhandlers hanging out in street corners. Felt uneasy after coming from... More

I was very excited to stay at a place with so much history. The whole place was quiet and clean. The carpets were even plush. I stayed for two nights and loved every bit of my stay. If I were to improve on anything it would be on the mattress and the sheets. The mattress was a little too firm... More

Very nice old school hotel. The location is just on the edge of the 'nice' part of downtown, it's easy to walk to most places of interest from there.I got a corner room near the top and it was huge with great views, especially for the price I paid. They've clearly put in a lot of effort with the decor,... More

The architecture, views, and staff were wonderful. We stayed on the top floor, which was beautiful, however it took a very long time to get a proper shower. I know, first world problems, but I'm just calling it like I see it. There was a eco-friendly head on the shower, which only meant I took a longer shower waiting for... More

This is a beautiful remodeled old hotel in downtown Tampa. We recently stayed in it for a long weekend. Our room was spacious. The lobby has been redone in a beautiful manner. The staff was friendly. Nice bar on mezzanine. Nearby parking is available.

Despite its opulence and friendly employees, the management, or lack thereof, turned me completely against ever using this beautiful site for my daughter's wedding reception. On Wednesday I called ahead to make sure that I could park in the lot behind the hotel for lunch and a second look at the ballroom and facilities. All was approved. Our lunch was... More

This was our fourth stay at the Floridan this year and we've already made reservations for our next stay here in June. The hotel is so magnificent. The owners have spared no cost in restoring it to mint golden era condition. If you love beautiful nostalgic decor then this is the place for you. We had a delicious dinner in... More

I stayed at The Floridan with my girlfriend on Vacation and was absolutely blown away. The lobby and dining area is straight out of the 1920s and very beautiful, as are the individual rooms. The staff (front desk, waiters, guest services) were all readily available and very friendly. We stayed in a corner room and the views of the city... More
