Stayed here on a flyer and got a good one. If you appreciate nostalgia and old architecture you will love this place. Probably not for the kids but definitely bring your lover. Chandeliers, original front desk, original marble, brass rails, crown molding, rod iron railing, and just an eye full. Story I got was ...built in 1927 and was THE... More

The Crystal Dining Room at The Floridan is a beautiful venue for a special lunch or dinner. The refinishing of the room to a magnificent sparkle is a treat. The prices are reasonable, service great and food is delicious. At a recent lunch with friends, we remarked that it was like being in The Plaza in NY! The lobby is... More

I enjoyed a very nice dining experience in the hotel's dining room just off the lobby. The menu is very good in providing many options, and the food was fresh, well prepared, and nicely presented in this grand dining room. I had a fish selection which was very good. And the martini was excellent!!

The warmth of a B&B but the grandeur of a +5 Star luxury hotel. Expertly renovated, but the true attraction is the pleasant, personal service of ALL of the staff....front desk, bartenders, housekeeping, maintenance, etc. Free parking on site just enhances the relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. Only 9 blocks from the convention center and on the edge of the current re-urbanization,... More

I booked one of the penthouse rooms in February for a birthday party in May for my husband. I told "Kostos” (not sure of the spelling) one of the managers I was having a party. He gave me a tour of the room and I indicated there would be enough room for all of the people with the balcony (hint,... More

Stayed a whole month and they made it feel like home! The folks at the front desk were always helpful and friendly. The location is central and I was able to walk to yoga, coffee shops and food. The park is very close by and hosts events on the weekends. I generally felt safe outside, even late at night and... More

If you need a hotel across the street from Tampa federal court, here it is. For any other reason, forget it. Sketchy area, no security, no hotel staff other than one front desk attendant, one bartender, one restaurant greeter and one waitress. There must be a cook in the back. No room service, no ice, no minibars, no bellmen.

Restored hotel with substandard service. The room was not clean; housekeeping did not clean adequately the entire stay. Front desk did nothing to resolve this issue or the telephone not working. Did not follow up as promised. No extra toilet paper and roll was almost used up. Avoid this place!

I booked this hotel through Priceline's Name Your Own Price option. After inching my bid up over a number of days, this was the first place to bite, and even then, they were only giving me a 40% discount. But that aside, my advice is to be very careful of what officially designates certain star ratings, and to focus on... More

We had a nice time here. We only stayed one night. Rooms are big and nicely decorated. It is a historic building so I was not surprised that parts of it were "old". I think that gives it its charm. The only bad experience was that the AC was not working. As soon as we reported the problem, they came... More
