Fodor's Expert Review Governors Inn

Governors Inn, 209 S. Adams St., Tallahassee, Florida, 32301, USA

Only a block from the capitol, this plushly restored historic livery stable is abuzz during the week with politicians, press, lobbyists, and business travelers; on weekends, it's a perfect jumping-off point for tourists who want to visit downtown or couples looking for a romantic getaway. Rooms are a rich blend of brass, mahogany, and classic prints. It appeared in the HBO movie Recount, about the 36 days when all eyes were on Tallahassee following the 2000 presidential election.
