Historic Boutique Hotel Steps from Capitol Building
The Governors Inn is located about a block from the Florida State Capitol building in downtown Tallahassee. The boutique hotel sits on the winding, cobblestone Adams Street Commons, which leads south to the Old Capitol building (constructed in 1845), the Florida Supreme Court building, and City Hall. Take a short walk north on Adams and you can find the Governor’s Mansion; four blocks west is the Florida State University campus.
The stately hotel fits right in with the fancy buildings nearby. Each of the 41 rooms is named after a former Florida governor and has antiques such as english writing desks and dark wood armoires. In Governor courtyard rooms, french doors lead to private balconies. A spiral staircase connects the first floor of each Governor loft suite to a spacious bedroom upstairs. Governors chambers suites are roomy enough to accommodate families—there are 15-foot vaulted ceilings and separate sitting areas outfitted with sleeper sofas.
Tallahassee, Florida: Southern Charm with Historic Landmarks and Colorful Gardens
In contrast to the stereotypical image of Florida as a land overrun with palm trees and tourists, hilly Tallahassee exudes old Southern charm, with its towering oaks and historical estates. Downtown, trolleys trundle past the Old Capitol as well as 19th-century homes and buildings. Ascend to the top of the newer Capitol building for a sweeping view of the coast and the city’s landmarks.
The nearby Apalachicola National Forest features trails that wend their way through caverns, picturesque waterways, and flowery prairies. For further nature-centric meanderings, the nearby Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park sprawls across more than 300 acres of ornamental gardens, where magnolias and dogwoods mingle with camellias and azaleas. Those looking to kayak or canoe can visit the park’s Lake Hall, which also attracts anglers hoping to snag largemouth bass and bluegill.
