Stayed at Hotel Duval for two weekend nights and overall were extremely pleased with the experience. Our room was small-ish but very well organized, functional and stylish. The most unusual feature, I suppose, is the bathroom which is in the corner of the room and can be enclosed with two large frosted glass doors.
Other plusses were the desk with many electric outlets, so were we able to easily charge two phone and an ipad at night, and free and speedy wifi.
We only ate at the restaurant on the last morning, when we had a small snack and coffee. The pastries were very good and it was good to have an option in addition to the all-you can eat egg/sausage/bacon breakfast (which they also have).
The only negative I would say is the valet parking, which we used both nights. The staff were fine but I question whether they're really needed, since they hotel has a nice paring lot just next to the building. Why can't I get the car myself? Some people will enjoy this because of the association valet-parking has with luxury, but for me it added very little.
The hotel is close to a walkable part of downtown Tallahassee (and there don't seem to be many of those) and the time we were in town there was music and entertainment nearby, and a number of restaurants and bars open. It's also close, by car, to FSU and FAMU.
