Historic Boutique Hotel Steps from Capitol Building
Governors Inn is located about a block from the actual governor's office at the Florida Capitol building in downtown Tallahassee. But the hotel is neighbors with quite a few other political officials, too—it sits on the winding, cobblestone Adams Street Commons, which leads south to the 1845-built Old Capitol building, the Florida Supreme Court building, and Tallahassee City Hall. Take a short walk north on Adams and you can find the Florida Governor’s Mansion, too, and four blocks west is the Florida State University campus.
The inn's stately, elegant atmosphere coheres with the fancy buildings nearby. Each of the hotel’s 41 rooms is named after a past Florida governor and has antiques such as English writing desks and dark wood armoires. In Governor courtyard rooms, a set of french doors leads to a private balcony, and a spiral staircase connects the Governor loft suites’ first floor to the spacious bedrooms 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 fronting the roads. In the historic downtown district, trolleys trundle past the Old Capitol as well as 19th-century homes and buildings. Ascend to the top of the newer Capitol building to see 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 for its largemouth bass and bluegill.
