FYI: The hotel is now one of the main student buildings of the University of Tampa. The museum is located on one-half of the first floor (with its own separate entrance). The other half of the first floor and the remaining 3 additional floors are part of the university.
It is a beautiful building with exquisite decor, there's no doubt about that. However, the tour itself could be better arranged. For starters, there should be a guided tour each day it is open, even if it is merely once per day. Also, you can't help but get the feeling that they merely pushed all of the original furnishings from all four floors into this sectioned-off half of the first floor and called it a museum. Many of the rooms are packed to the brim with furnishings. The audio tour is ok, but tends to be a snooze fest. At this time, I feel that $10 per person is a bit steep. Hoping that the tour and room setup improve in the future.
