The Duval is one of the finer hotels in downtown Tallahassee and is only a couple of blocks from downtown. Based on the reviews i went in with high expectations, but after my stay I was wasn't too bent on a return visit.
As many other reviewers have hinted at the design of the room is terrible. The bathroom is really small and is designed poorly. The sliding doors that enclose the bathroom stick out and leave little room with the bed closest to the bathroom. The sink is extremely small and leaves little room for much of anything. The only positive is the shower, which makes you feel like your are bathing in the rich forests of the amazon.
Overall, i did not feel like i was staying in a five-star hotel. The hotel advertised itself as having various services such as a spa and concierge that it did not in fact have. The rooms were kept clean and extremely comfortable. The service staff were friendly but not really knowledgeable about the services the hotel offered. Further, the wait times for room service were sub-par. Lastly, we were forced to pay $12/night for parking. Having to pay for parking seemed at bit absurd.
Shula's grill downstairs was fantastic. The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious, and the staff were exceptional. Also, make sure to check out the bar on the top-floor as it offers a beautiful view of the city.
