Floridan Palace embodies old Tampa

dining room

Walk into a world encompassing old Tampa charm, early 20th-century jazz and dazzling interior decoration at the Floridan Palace Hotel.

The standout in the downtown Tampa scene displays architectural design involving a three-part Beaux arts plan and exterior details inspired by the Renaissance Revival period. Originally opened in downtown Tampa in 1926, the Floridan was once a destination for famous guests, such as Elvis Presley.

But it eventually fell into disrepair, and closed for seven years before reopening in 2012. Visit if you’re looking for a bar or restaurant with a luxurious feel or a historic staycation destination.
