I didn't have high expectations considering the city, but the hotel and staff met and exceeded my expectations.
First, I was most impressed by the service. The staff is professional and ready to help with anything. We were running late, and would be arriving after room service closed (and good luck finding a good late night meal in town). We called ahead, they read us the menu over the phone, arranged for dinner to be waiting in our room, and were very nice in making the arrangements. I expected to just find a tray in the room. Instead, dinner was laid out, the ice bucket was filled with ice and tongs provided, the water was in the fridge, the bed turned down, etc. Very impressive. The food was also really good. I would return to the restaurant even if here on a day trip.
The room was also great. High quality fixtures and carpet. I saw the other review about the sink not having space, but I didn't have a problem at all. There was room around the sink and a shelf below, as well. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the chaise lounge in the room was great. The fridge was actually empty for use, instead of filled with minibar junk. The rooms were not bright, but that wasn't a problem as there were plenty of lamps and lights. The decor was much nicer in person than in photographs. I don't like red at all, and our red decor room was beautiful and relaxing.
The location was also very convenient to everything in Tallahassee. Yes, it's difficult to turn off Monroe into the hotel, but traffic here is a pain generally.
I was very impressed with the service and quality of the hotel. We will certainly be returning!
