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

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
