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

We've stayed there for one night only. The hotel itself is old, but renovated (ok quality). The front desk staff was helpful, the valet as well. The room was fairly spacious, but uncomfortable. The layout mimicked cheap motels where you have a shower/tub and toilet in a bathroom and then the sink with toiletries outside in the hallway. The beds... More

So I've always wanted to stay at the Floridan ever since they renovated it a few years ago - I love 1920's architecture and decorative arts. The lobby is gorgeous, our room on the 19th FL was pretty too. The good points: very accommodating staff that jumped quickly to address our needs, decent location (we walked to a local festival...

We stayed at the Floridan Palace for a week out of a 2 week business trip. Probably one of the worst hotels I have stayed in over the last 15 years of traveling for work. The decor gives a nice blast into the past of an early 30s and 40s upscale establishment. I did not expect the hotel to meet... More

I love hotels with character and this one certainly fits the bill. The staff greeted me by name when I walked in. The old-style design is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We chose the king-sized room and it was perfect. We had a gorgeous view of downtown Tampa. This one is worth the price.

A lovely, well appointed hotel, with great staff. However, they don't offer breakfast - which is odd. However, the bar food (from 11am-11pm) is very good. I stayed in room 1505 which had a great view of downtown. One other thing. About 3 blocks away there is a train line and one night a train went through blowing it's horn... More

My husband and I stayed at this property and were pleasantly surprised. We absolutely loved our experience, from check in, to check out. This hotel has an incredible history, we were able to learn about some of the stories and be a part of that -- definitely ask! They did not miss a beat with the restoration of it's original... More

This is an old hotel that has been beautifully refurbished. Our room on the 18th floor was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. What more could you ask for? We were in Tampa for the women's basketball Final Four. The location was convenient and within walking distance to Amalie Arena. Staff was helpful-approved late check-out for our departure. Only downside was... More
