“Best of Tallahassee”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

My son and his new wife spent their first night as a married couple at the Hotel Duval before leaving for St. Lucia the next day. I had requested an upgrade if possible since it was their honeymoon and the Hotel Duval delivered! They were warmly greeted upon arrival and immediately upgraded to the Sapphire Suite. They raved about the beauty of the facility, the professionalism and courtesy of the staff and the room itself. It was clean, quiet and relaxing. They had arranged for a taxi to take them to the airport in the morning which didn't show. The front desk immediately resounded and a cab was there within 2 minutes of being called. I don't stay overnight in Tallahassee because I only live 30 minutes away, but I have eaten at Shula's which is a great steakhouse. Although they were only there overnight, my son and his wife had a great hotel experience their first night as husband and wife. I thank the Hotel Duval for making that happen.

The musty/mold smell in not only the hallways but the room is pretty bad. There doesn't seem to be any fresh air inside anywhere. The room windows are small, dirty and do not open; otherwise immaculate and appeared very "high-end" on every level. Bed was very comfortable and clean as well as the bathroom was very clean except water seemed to run all over the floor when using the shower?? Great restaurant downstairs, valet parking. If it wasn't for the odor; I would have definitely given it five stars and there would be nothing negative to say.

Stayed one night at the Duval when passing through Tallahassee. We asked in advance for a quiet room, and they gave it to us. Third floor, away from the street, was just the ticket. I also asked for feather-free, and they had it ready when we arrived. In busy Tallahassee, this place is an oasis. We are chemically sensitive, and the third floor is the “vanilla” floor, but they had assured me the scent was released near the elevator and none at all in the room. We had no problems at all. The décor is spare and modern, with a practical desk and fridge/coffee area (and pretty good coffee, for in-room service). The only issue is the shower, as mentioned in other reviews. Likes: the river-rock floor (really), the glass sink fixture. Dislikes: the “rain” shower head (hard to rinse hair), and the water leaking onto the bathroom floor. One other note: there was a holiday party in the 8th floor ballroom, and other than the happy, dressed-up people in the elevator, we would not have known. We went up to the 8th floor bar for a nightcap, ourselves. Great balcony and view.

Room Tip: Middle floors to the back of the building are quietest. Farther from the elevator area is better if...

This hotel's interior is more like a Miami/ boutique-type place. The rooms are clean and house a funky bathroom with a rain shower style shower head, pebble stone shower floor and glass doors. The beds are so comfortable and if you get a quiet room a very good night sleep is possible. I think the entire team is great. Front desk A+ service. There is a shuttle to the airport which is super convenient. I love Shula's, their restaurant and the upstairs rooftop bar. All in all, I'll keep coming back.

Rooms were dark but very clean and well equipped. Nice use of electric strips. Hot water was VERY hot and close to instant. Shula's restaurant was good. We used room service once - seemed confused.

The breakfast Restaurant was Ok. We just had breakfast. Nothing but the usual.

The Duval is a nice smaller hotel that has a fantastic location. Check-in was quick and accommodating of my room location request even though we had arrived before 11am Saturday on a FSU game weekend. The room was good-sized, the bed was comfortable and the outside noise was kept to a minimum due to double pane windows. An added feature to the hotel is Shula's restaurant which offered up one of the best dining experiences I've ever had - but that's for their own review, oh BTW they have a Starbucks near the lobby as well! I would definitely recommend the Hotel Duval to family and friends.

Room Tip: We asked for and got a corner room on the third floor, facing Monroe yet noise was nominal and not a...

We've been coming to Tallahassee for a few years now due to our daughter attending FSU. Fortunately we discovered Hotel Duval after staying at a couple of other area hotels and have never been disappointed. We love the fact that it is a boutique hotel and not a large chain as it lends itself to a totally different vibe. The employees from the valets, front desk attendants, to the maid service are very friendly and helpful. Not once have we requested early check-in and our room has not been ready nor had any type of issue that was not rectified immediately.

Yes, the bathrooms are different - with frosted glass doors, river rock on the shower floors, vessel sinks and a rain shower; it's part of what makes HD different. The scented floors have never bothered us and you can't smell any of it inside the room, it's just another unique touch. Glad they have refrigerators in every room as it comes in handy with tailgating supplies on game weekends!

Shula's 347 Restaurant being in HD is a big plus, it's definitely our go-to restaurant in Tally. Love the food, good wine and great service. Also, Level 8 on the top floor is a nice place to have drinks and enjoy the view of Tallahassee with the stadium in the background. It does get busy up there on the weekends (especially game weekends!) but they have couches outside for seating and if it's especially busy they open up the ballroom which is adjacent to the bar with tables and seating too. We were there for the Miami game and were lucky enough to have a seating area with couches and chairs for our party inside next to the band and dance floor - fun!! (Thanks James and Sid) Small Starbucks and restaurant in the lobby, we usually don't eat there other than to grab a bagel or muffin though so can't speak for the food.

There are definitely cheaper places to stay in Tallahassee but....as the old saying goes....You get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Ask for a king corner room if you'd like a larger room
