This hotel was given to us on a Priceline bid. It was only a mile from Tampa Bay Times Forum, which was good. When we pulled up to the hotel there was not clear marking on the entrance or where to park. The public spaces look great. The floors with rooms smell funny and so did the room. The room... More

Stayed here for 2 nights prior to getting on a Cruise ship. This is a gorgeously beautifully renovated hotel with lovely public spaces and very nicely decorated hotel rooms. You actually feel like you are staying in a WWII era hotel. Can't say enough about the attention to detail of the authentic renovations. A must see. The reviews previous to... More

I want to start by saying that I don't usually take all negative comments that people make on hotels at face value. Feels like people have an axe to grind sometimes. This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a review and only for the purpose of helping others avoid the issues we experienced and this... More

First let me say that as a native to Tampa I have seen this hotel go from a building with a hole in the roof and pigeons as the only residents back to a gem of a property that has been lovingly restored to its former glory. The building and the restoration is incredible, nothing short of astonishing for what... More

After reading the reviews, I really wanted to make it work. Stunning, old, historical hotel and beautiful renovations. Deluxe room was extremely spacious with comfy double beds. Front desk and bar tending staff were very pleasant. Again, I really wanted to make it work. However, no staff around to assist with luggage up the stairs, open a door, you have... More

I read the latest reviews on here. I have to say, people are absolutely stupid. This hotel is beautiful and the staff is perfect. Yes, this is an elegant place. It is not for rednecks expecting $50 a night accommodations and $2 PBRs at the bar. The rooms are there to be enjoyed. They are so beautiful. Why do you... More

The hotel is beautifully restored with elegant but very basic rooms - must have been so charming in the hay days. However at New Year's Eve the hotel revealed a very different story. Our first impression was shattered at reception after we had walked up many stairs - didn't feel particularly welcome & the man on reception had made an... More

I really want to see the Floridan Palace Hotel thrive. I love historic hotels that retain their character. The Floridan is one of the few links downtown tampa has to it's early history. The hotel once played host to movie stars and celebrities. This hotel has the potential to be a gem in the same way the Peabody is in... More
