I have stayed there from the 2st September to the 6th. Downtown was well ..downtown. This hotel made my vacation special . The hotel is unique and has a lot of personality. My room was spacious. The bathroom products were great. The personal staff was really kind and helpful. I really recommend it.

Stopped by the bar and wanted to hear the piano player they had on last visit. Deeply disppointed that he was not playing any more. No one on staff could tell me why they no longer had a piano. It was one of the best reasons to stop by this location. Hopeully, they'll bring him back.

We were very impressed when we entered the hotel. I know how dilapidated it had become over the years and the new owners have done a fantastic job with the renovation, at least as far as the lobby and dining area is concerned. Apparently, there was no money left for the operation of the kitchen. The food was essentially inedible.... More

I could not believe how beautiful the hotel was. Old world charm. Room was nice. Booked on hotwire...great deal. Unfortunately, owner/manager (not sure) Antonio Marco is extremely rude. Upon checking in I was told the hotel would not be honoring my reservation (my room was paid in full on July 3rd). He felt I needed to pay more money. Well... More

Some friends suggested meeting for dinner at the Floridan. While I had heard many people speak highly of the bar there, I was unaware of the restaurant. I left full and pleasantly surprised by the fare. The restaurant was, unfortunately, dead. I think this is a function of the non-existent marketing on the restaurant. I say unfortunately, because while it... More

I attended a wedding in Tampa and was looking for a place to get ready that was near by my destination and a place to crash after a night of celebrating. I checked their availability on a few sites that show rooms left. After seeing they had several rooms I called and negotiated a price $30 cheaper than they were... More

I stayed at the Floridan Palace hotel from July 31st through August 3rd and had a wonderful time! This is an incredible hotel that makes you feel like you are living in the 1920s or 30s. The original Floridan opened in 1926 and closed in 1987. It was purchased in 2005 by the current owners and completely renovated. It reopened... More

I was a little scared booking this hotel after some of the reviews I read, but the price was right and it was close to our venue. We stayed here for the 2014 Comic Con and it was amazing! If you like the show mad men this is a must stay hotel! Super ornate details, friendly staff, and an all... More

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.
