“LOVELY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2011

Very nice hotel in center of Downtown. Room clean and large ( Governors Chamber )Front desk Paige very helpful with info. on things to do within walking distance. Able to walk to museum , IMAX theater and ate at nice restaurant " Harry's " as recomended by Paige. Only possible downside is no elevators but, very unique hallways and quiet atmosphere in common areas. Enjoyed our stay very much !

The Governor's Inn in Tallahassee WOWed me to the point of wanting to book another trip to Tallahasse even in the Summertime! I was there for 6 days and I was provided with an amazing accomodation. The staff was fabulous and whenever I needed them they were there with my car, directions, and assisted me in using their business services. The upkeep of the rooms was impeccable as well! The Inn is very convenient to local restaurants with a variety to choose from. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel when traveling into Tallahassee!

This is a great hotel for doing business at the Capitol and other governmental needs. Perfect location to FSU/FAMU. Short walk to the Capitol. In the middle of Adams street restaurants where everyone eats.

Extremely clean and comfortable. Each room is named after a former Governor. Great historical perspective.

Check In is a breeze because it is a small location. They remember the personal preferences you like and which room you prefer.

This small Tallahassee hotel should be on your list if you travel to Tallahassee for business or pleasure. The entrance way and lobby are beautifully appointed and decorated in a way that communicates charm and warmth. The lobby is nicely used for both a wonderful cocktail hour in the late afternoon, and a pleasant continental breakfast in the morning. There are always guests mingling and you can get a flavor of what's happening in town. The rooms are named after Florida's Governors [hence, the name] and are quite comfortable, if not elegant. The only drawback is the absence of a restaurant/room service, but the hotel's location in downtown, blocks from the Capital and Supreme Court and surrounded by restaurants, easily fills that void. As a B&B owner, the feel is more B&B than hotel. You'll like it.

After I read the promotional content on this hotel's Web site, I thought I'd be in for a treat during a stressful business trip to Tallahassee. Instead of a boutique hotel, however, I was dismayed to be shown a room without any real windows (there was one very small window for the entire room, placed high on one wall almost as if in a basement); an uncomfortable bed with very tall legs that made it impossible to sit easily on the bed; and furnishings and linens that looked like they belonged in a retirement home. Add to this no reliable wireless network in the outdated room and the absence of accessible power outlets and other amenities, and you've got a boutique wannabe that is failing in providing a comfortable experience -- for this traveler at least. Thank goodness that the pub across the street was open late, because at least we were able to have some good comfort food on the two nights we stayed there. The complimentary breakfast snacks and happy hour provisions were nice offerings, but not nice enough to change my rating from "poor" to "average," based on the unearned price and hype. Frankly, I would not stay at this hotel again and would not recommend it to others.

From the time you enter the lobby and see the rich wooden tones on the paneled walls matched by the soft color hues of the furnishings - you feel at home. Sitting areas are comfortable; soft music is low enough to comfortably converse; bar service is deft and offers a complete selection of premium brands. Guests come and go quietly, but are always willing to engage for a few words of conversation. Staff is helpful, but not intrusive. Rooms are tastefully appointed with all the special touches. For a business traveler or someone visiting Florida's Capital City for only a few days - this is a premier property in the best location of all - within a stone's throw of the Capital - with easy access to Museums, restaurants, and FSU/FAMU campuses. You can't beat it for the perfect stay.
