This is the place to be if doing business in Tampa. Great location with access to good running alone bayshore and plenty of eating locations within walking distance. As with most Embassy Suites, the breakfast is a great deal. Only negative is the $10/day for internet. I know it's industry standard, but I think it's a bad trend.

You cannot go wrong staying at this hotel. It is right across the street from the Convention Center. It has a walk bridge, so you can avoid traffic. You will not be disappointed. You also have local attractions that are in close proximity. All in all, you cannot go wrong with a hotel that offers you free breakfast and night... More

Valet- We checked in Friday 8/22 around 11:30 pm. The person who valeted our car seemed either tired and over worked or unconcerned with truly being helpful. The customer service of all the valet staff we encountered was poor the entire duration of our staff. At check out after standing at the valet window few a bit, the valet attendant... More

The room very comfortable. It included some very nice touches, such as the wet bar and a vanity with sink in the bedroom. Excellent location. Easy drive to the restaurants on Howard or a quick trip on the Light Rail to Ybor City. (Stop 10 is just out the lobby doors.) Just a quick mention, this is a very busy... More

I think it's a pretty good value for downtown Tampa - especially if you want something larger than just a room and are in town for a convention. The staff is wonderful. I can't say enough good things about them. The valets are top notch. Check in was so easy and everyone is super helpful. The beds are good with... More

An old run down hotel with dirty rooms. Nice location, but to see the area there are plenty of other options just as close by. Pool is very small and elevators were only half working for my entire stay. I would not recommend this location adn would never stay here again.

Great location, very clean rooms and comfortable beds, but, internet access (wifi) is not free, expect to pay $10 for that along with a $24 fee to park (valet) overnight. What starts out as a $149 a night with the extra fees (described above) and taxes ends up costing you over $200 a night.
