Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

This is a lovely place to visit with easy parking. They do not have an actual guide but you can scan a QR code and download/listen on your phone. The antiques are very nice, a few rooms seemed as though the items had been thrown into them. the building also functions as an academic building and I was really amazed that the gorgeous staircases and carpet are in such great shqpe!

This is a wonderful insight into a frenetic time in Floridian history: The opening up of the state and the excitement of opportunity. The museum recreates a sense of the old hotel, with European artefacts haphazardly scattered about the cloisters and rooms. The building itself is a creative mix of architectural styles and the museum gives an insightful appraisal of the design and history of the iconic building.

We had a wonderful time visiting the museum. I was so happy to find this local favorite. I’ve been to Tampa many times and this was never on my radar until I found it listed on Trip Advisor. The architecture of the building is stunning! I enjoyed the free audio tour that really brought each room to life. What an amazing piece of history…everyone should visit while in Tampa.

The Henry B. Plant Museum is located at 401 West Kennedy Boulevard in Tampa, Florida, in the south wing of Plant Hall on the University of Tampa's campus. Plant Hall was originally built by railroad magnate Henry B. Plant as the Tampa Bay Hotel, a 511-room resort-style hotel that opened in 1891 and attracted hundreds of celebrities and political figures until it closed in 1930 when the Great Depression severely curtailed tourism. Open from 10 to 5 Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 5 on Sunday, the museum's exhibits focus on historical Gilded Age tourism in the Tampa Bay area, the elite lifestyle of the hotel's guests and the Tampa Bay Hotel's use during the Spanish-American War. The museum, which opened in 1933, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976. In 2012, the American Institute of Architects' Florida Chapter placed Plant Hall on its list of Florida Architecture: 100 years, 100 places. The hotel covers six acres and is a quarter-mile long. It was equipped with the first elevator ever installed in Florida--and it is still functional today, making it one of the oldest continually operational elevators in the nation. In addition, the 511 rooms and suites were the first in Florida to have electric lighting and telephones. Most rooms also included private bathrooms with a full-size tub. The cost of rooms ranged from $5 to $15 a night. The grounds of the hotel spanned 150 acres and included a golf course, bowling alley, race track, casino and an indoor heated swimming pool. Architecturally, Plant chose a Moorish Revival theme that includes six minarets four cupolas and three domes spanning five stories all trimmed in ornate Victorian Gingerbread. Plant filled his hotel with trainloads of original art and furnishings. Some of it is conserved in Plant Hall, including an assortment of rococo bronzes, furniture, clocks, tapestries, paintings and vases, even a vase that was a gift from the Emperor of Japan. Today, visitors have the option to book guided tours with a docent or take a self-guided audio tour, as my wife and I did, and watch a video entitled The Tampa Bay Hotel: Florida's First Magic Kingdom. It's exhilarating to envision the hotel as a base of operations for the Spanish-American War, where Teddy Roosevelt retained a suite and his Rough Riders were stationed during the time, where notable guests included Sarah Bernhardt, Clara Barton, Queen Victoria, the Prince of Wales, Winston Churchill and Babe Ruth. In fact, Ruth signed his first baseball contract in the Grand Dining Room.

What a wonderful hidden gem on the University of Tampa campus! It was fascinating to learn about Henry B. Plant and the beautiful resort he created as the Tampa Bay Hotel. Take a stroll back to the late 19th century and be immersed in the luxury of this remarkable palace and its surroundings. I loved the ambiance of the Writing and Reading Room the best. You can use your phone to download a self guided tour or just wander from room to room and feast your eyes on the lavish furnishings. We had to pay for parking on the street and didn’t see the sign in front of the museum, which said to park for free at the Thomas Parking Garage if needed. All in all, it was a wonderful museum and a Tampa treasure!

The old hotel converted into a museum is a must-visit if you're in Tampa. The museum is beautiful and a lot of fun to visit. We highly recommend.

We are big Geeky fans of Gilded age stuff- the Plant did Not disappoint. The staff are super friendly, and the app info provides great commentary. Be sure to check out other Architectual wonders in the adjoining Student canter- the former music room and dining room are outside the museum's footprint, but in the same building.

As a Tampa native, I’ve visited several of our world-class museum, but this tiny, luxurious gem takes the cake! I highly recommend you take advantage of the included audio tour.
