Stayed here for one night before a cruise. Room was large, bed was comfortable, pillows were awesome, water pressure was good. Restaurant was closed by 9 pm on a Saturday night, so we had pizza delivered.

Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms and beautiful. During the time we stayed the restaurant downstairs wasn't open for breakfast. You'd have to make other arrangements by either walking or take other transportation. We had a rental car so it worked out. As a guest I expected more our of such a beautiful place.

Booked here as a visitor from Australia going to the ice hockey at Amalie Arena. The arena was only a short five minute Uber ride. Staff were very helpful printing out my tickets, the king room was amazing and spacious. The only downside was it didn't seem to be in a great part of town. No real food options around.

Hotel itself is fine but the combination of the fraternity "conclave" party and awful service make this the worst hotel stay I can imagine. Wild guests screaming at all hours, hotel employees either didn't care about guest satisfaction or had no way to resolve issues. A few of the many issues I noticed in the short stay were: front desk...

This place is great if you like an old feel with modern touches. The hotel has been restored to its original style with modern features like flat screen tvs and nice beds. The staff was great our bartender/ waiter was new to the hotel but was very friendly and helpful and knew his job well. We had booked a room...

While the Floridan Palace is a beautiful hotel with all the historic appointments, it lacks in the pleasantries of a modern hotel. Our large room, with two queen beds, was clean, however, the placement of the tv on a side wall of the room made it difficult to watch tv from your bed (you had to lay on your side)....

We traveled to Tampa for National Championship game. The rooms were freezing - heat was broken and they were "out of blankets". They did fix it the next day but the first night was shot because we couldn't sleep. Our grown sons in the next room had to shower in our room becuase they had no water pressure. There were...

We needed a last minute place to stay on a night when all the hotels in Tampa were booked. Despite arriving late, the staff greeted us warmly and treated us like honored guests. I can't say enough positive things about Camille, who helped put a comforting end to a long day. Thank you!

A short stop on our honeymoon for the National Championship game. Two basic expectations for rooms in that you want a nice toilet, shower, bathroom and a clean bed to sleep in. The Floridan provides neither! Water pressure is terrible it is nearly impossible to have a shower. Our bed had a huge stain in it (see picture) when we...
