Although Tallahassee is more known for the brick buildings and FSU than it is for the city life or fashion, The Hotel Duval offers a nice urban escape while still providing a comfortable atmosphere. Offering a nice change from the consistent brick you see around town, the valet area is decorated with a sleek modern stone look; and from that moment on, it is obvious that the designers of this hotel thought out every little detail. The doors that lead into the lobby from the valet area are not even your typical automatic doors.
Staying true to the property's uniqueness, the staff was amazingly professional while being exceptionally friendly at the same time (too many times in an upscale property, you find the staff to be "stuffy"). This wonderful service was portrayed in all levels of staff from the room service staff all the way up to the General Manager and his Director of Sales.
A couple of my favorites about the property:
- After checking in, I was offered a complimentary bottle of water
- Each floor of the hotel is a different theme and different "scent"
- The room service uniforms are adorable black dresses (for the females of course) from French Connection (adorable yet professional and trendy!)
- The staff!!!
There are so many wonderful and unique things about this property that this review could go on and on, so instead of just reading about it, I suggest you go experience it :)
