We stayed at the Floridan Hotel recently as part of our family holiday and we're glad we did, it's a very cool place. We had a corner room on the 18th floor and it was HUGE! The recent renovation has been done very sympathetically and gives a great 1920s feel without making the place feel old fashioned / out of date.
The only drawbacks to our room were the very hard pillows (not a big deal really) and the period sash windows - while they look great, they don't isolate the outside city sounds, so light sleepers be aware.
This is a great, funky property and the staff were very good too. The free parking is a big bonus for a city location too.
