This hotel has been completely restored and has a a lot of potential. We went to Tampa for a long weekend and had forgotten how much fun it can be. The location is good for visiting the Tampa Theater where you can take a tour. It is also good for visiting the Henry Plant Museum. There are a few restaurants... More

The place was nice but I think the company needs to hire a new staff, house keeping coup day speak English, bellman dropped my bag, I couldn't get a hold of house keeping... You get my drift. Don't think I'll be coming back though, my daddy didn't like the atmosphere of the hotel.

I made a reservation through Priceline for this property and it was listed as a 3.5 star. When the cab driver laughed and told me it was a one star, I unfortunately found out that was true. I arrived and noticed that the buildings around the hotel had boarded up windows. There was no one outside- it was like a... More

This hotel was very nice, clean and the staff was friendly. Parking is easy - and the location is great! The hotel did not have rooms with double beds when we arrived, so our family had to fit into a king and a pull out bed - the pull out bed was not comfortable (no pull out beds are really... More

Stayed here on a flyer and got a good one. If you appreciate nostalgia and old architecture you will love this place. Probably not for the kids but definitely bring your lover. Chandeliers, original front desk, original marble, brass rails, crown molding, rod iron railing, and just an eye full. Story I got was ...built in 1927 and was THE... More

The Crystal Dining Room at The Floridan is a beautiful venue for a special lunch or dinner. The refinishing of the room to a magnificent sparkle is a treat. The prices are reasonable, service great and food is delicious. At a recent lunch with friends, we remarked that it was like being in The Plaza in NY! The lobby is... More

I enjoyed a very nice dining experience in the hotel's dining room just off the lobby. The menu is very good in providing many options, and the food was fresh, well prepared, and nicely presented in this grand dining room. I had a fish selection which was very good. And the martini was excellent!!

The warmth of a B&B but the grandeur of a +5 Star luxury hotel. Expertly renovated, but the true attraction is the pleasant, personal service of ALL of the staff....front desk, bartenders, housekeeping, maintenance, etc. Free parking on site just enhances the relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. Only 9 blocks from the convention center and on the edge of the current re-urbanization,... More

I booked one of the penthouse rooms in February for a birthday party in May for my husband. I told "Kostos” (not sure of the spelling) one of the managers I was having a party. He gave me a tour of the room and I indicated there would be enough room for all of the people with the balcony (hint,... More

Stayed a whole month and they made it feel like home! The folks at the front desk were always helpful and friendly. The location is central and I was able to walk to yoga, coffee shops and food. The park is very close by and hosts events on the weekends. I generally felt safe outside, even late at night and... More
