I stayed one night at the Floridan hotel on 01/17/15. Beautiful hotel with a lot of Art... Surprised to find out they have no valet service, no descent parking spaces, no bell service, no concierge, no breakfast and no room amenities ( no coffee, no hand/face soaps, no iron table, no fridge...) It was a $200/night! Had better experience at... More

My husband I were visiting family in the area and stayed 3 nights at the Floridan Hotel. WOW! It was absolutely breathtaking upon entering the palace. It really did feel like a palace. The way they renovated was brilliant! Their attention to detail...incredible. They also maintained the historical feel of the building. I particularly liked the old original mail box... More

Beautifully redone. the building is magnificent, the rooms are lush and the beds and very comfy and inviting. The staff is friendly and over worked. The owners children are aloof and condescending to staff and patrons.

Nice stay in a hotel with a history and offering good services. Nice big rooms, with a nice view (our room was on the 16h floor). Restaurant with high quality food and reasonable prices. The area around the hotel is not too interesting, but if you want/like to walk you are about 10-15 minutes away from convention center, cruise harbour... More

I was treated to a tour of the lovely restored Floridan Palace hotel when our group of Methodist volunteers visited this downtown historical site. We trod the hallways and entered the Grand Ballroom where many past Celebrities visited through out the golden years of the 1900's. The dining room experience was delightful and the service was superb. I ordered the... More

Pages of Life Book & Gift Shop Christmas Luncheon was held at the Floridan Hotel. The restored 1926 hotel is beautiful. The food was delicious and the service superb. Save room for the out of this world desserts, they are wonderful.

My mother was treated on her 89th birthday to dinner at the Floridian Hotel restaurant . Unfortunately the quality did not match the decor and ambiance of the hotel . The salmon was thin over cooked and dry . The salad mediocre with poor quality tomatoes and a shrimp dish that was disappointing . I will not be recommending to... More

My husband and I spent a weekend here and had a fantastic time. We read about the restoration of the hotel and wanted to see it for ourselves. Our room was on a corner on the 12th floor giving us great views all around - the sunset over the river, city hall, Sacred Heart - so much to see! We... More

I went to the Floridan to join a group of 25 or so people who had decided to meet in the lobby bar. The hotel is beautifully renovated. If you haven't stayed in a historic hotel, you may be used to the cookie-cutter chains. This hotel is so beautiful from the hand-painted designs on the ceilings, crystal chandeliers, gorgeous ballroom,... More
