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

I recently had the pleasure of staying here with my family and it was wonderful! The staff was very accommodating. I also wanted to say that Nick at the front desk was amazing! Rooms were very spacious, clean, and comfortable. If your ever in Tampa you defiantly need to stay!

I loved getting drinks at... More

Beautiful rooms and hotel. Keys had to be redone everyday and desk never asked for ID to do so. Requested hangars and towels for three - nothing happened. Finally got third towel set from desk late at night. Ice? Oh yeah go to bar. Watch final four on tv at bar? Only until closing time even if that means turning... More

We didn't have reservations and inquired about availability at the front desk. I got the distinct impression that the clerk couldn't care less if we checked in or not and seemed disinclined to be of any help. People here don't know each other - so it may be helpful to assure that we were dressed quite properly and were no... More

Upon arriving at this hotel with a large group, I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful room - large bed, big curtains, great size dresser, pretty décor. Then I tried to hang something up in the closet. No hangers. Not a one. Took a shower, and discovered the shower head simply squirted out water in a circle - just a... More
