From journal Take a Trip to Tallahassee

The Governors Inn is a small hotel but looks and feels more like a friendly guest house. Its prime location is near the Capitol and within easy walking distance to Tallahassee's downtown tourist attractions. You can easily turn your car over to the valet and not need it again until check-out time. Also, because of its location, the Governors Inn is usually where visiting politicians and VIPs choose to stay. Keep your eyes peeled.
The hotel is a tall brick building that's actually a restored warehouse. It sits close to the street with very limited parking in front, but, thankfully, there is free valet service. The word "warehouse" doesn't sound very appealing, but inside it's quite nice.
The look is one of serene elegance with dark, rich colors, a lot of mahogany woodwork and furniture, brass fixtures and fine art.
As you may have guessed from its name, all the rooms are named after former governors, and, if you're like me and have no sense of direction, you may want to leave a trail of breadcrumbs on the way to your room. It's easy to get lost and you could find yourself wandering aimlessly, turning this way and that down the many hallways that seemingly turn and curve and dead-end in every possible direction.
Our room was nicely furnished with a large, four-poster bed, a small sitting area and a beautiful mahogany wardrobe that housed the television.
The only drawback was the bath. I'm sure many of the baths have been updated, but the bath in our room had not been, which meant there was no place to put any toiletries or more importantly, to plug in a hair dryer.
On the bright side, that gave me a good excuse for my bad hair day.
