    Recommended Hotels in Tallahassee:

    Close walking distance (about 3-4 blocks from the College of Music):
    University  Inn & Suites Tallahassee (a former Travelodge) is the closest (2 blocks) and cheapest, but it is old and despite the recent renovation is somewhat scruffy! Safe, but noisy— we don’t recommend it, but some choose to stay there for the location and cost. 691 W. Tennessee Street ? Tallahassee, FL 32304 Phone: (850) 224-8161 ? Fax: (850) 222-5688 Email:

    Residence Inn - Tallahassee, Universities at the Capitol
    (south of the College of Music; recommended; walk is up and down a steep hill) 600 W Gaines St, Tallahassee, FL (850) 329-9080
