My wife and I reserved 2 rooms for the Groomsmen in our Son's wedding. We did this to provide a comfortable atmosphere for them after the rehearsal dinner and their night on the town. Our expectations were met and exceeded by this Grand Lady. She has been restored to her former glory and is staffed by those who clearly care...

The worst stay at a hotel…the Floridian Palace in Tampa. This was an anniversary trip. It started out being placed on the 19th floor. Normally, this would be ok, however, the reason we had NO hot water was because We were so high up, so they told us. The tub had a hole that had been repaired, still With NO...

This is a small older hotel that has been redone and is lovely. Our room was huge and beautifully furnished. The lobby is gorgeous with a decorative ceiling and crystal chandeliers. Everything was clean and well cared for. There is a $15 fee for parking/day. The lot is adjacent to the hotel, so easy access. There is no breakfast or...

No vending machines, poor communication about credit card charges at check in (still waiting for holds to be removed a week after checkout), no Wi-Fi access, and limited TV channels (when the signal could be found).

They didn't clean the blanket in my room. I got snuggled in my bed only to feel the side of my crusted up blanket on my face. Upon deeper inspection, i saw that the blanket was covered in what looked like semen, you could actually see the path of the droplets across the blanket. Compleatly disgusting. I complain to the...

The hotel itself was nicely furnished and clean. The amenities (none) and service were horrible. Staff never replaced any room supplies. Front desk had to make me five keys before one finally worked. And worst of all, NO BREAKFAST!! Have never been to a hotel that didn't serve breakfast. Had a pot in room but only had one coffee pod...

It is just like as it appears on the hotel's info. The service was excellent. The look was elegant and vintage. The place was clean. The beds were very comfortable. The room was beautifully arranged. So I have no idea why some people give bad reviews. Those reviews are absurd. I loved it, and I would make a reservation next...

Stayed: Sept. 14th For: Kayne West concert I've read the reviews prior to booking and was keeping my fingers crossed that this place wouldn't be a disaster. Gratefully, I had nothing to fear! This place is great. From the decor, the staff, the room - everything was fantastic. The hotel is located a few blocks from the arena and it...

Our guests loved it. They were ecstatic about the restaurant and the two bars. Gotta have a 'between the sheets'. In the middle of downtown but very quiet even with fire department 3 blocks away. Easy walk to convention center. Riverwalk area was very nice as was the Tampa Museum. Took in a show at the Straz. Very short walk.

I read the reviews before I booked our room and I was expecting to be disappointed. We were amazed at the charming detail and unexpected beauty of this property. See it for yourself. Our suite was wonderful, the dining room service enjoyable and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant.
