Not that much was expected for the "free" breakfast but thank goodness for the Starbucks in the lobby. WiFi not free for all guests. Common areas - not that clean. Beds were thankfully clean but the room needed a scrub down. Front desk staff - very nice and patient. Elevators - frustratingly slow and inefficient.

No complaints! Excellent location. Great rooms. Breakfast was very good. Staff was super friendly. Trolley station is just outside. Riverwalk is across the street. You know what to expect if you have stayed at an Embassy Suites before.

Definitely overpriced. The room was nothing special - no better than what one would find at an average interstate hotel. Housekeeping was spotty - something was missing every day. Unless you are at the convention center or the forum, the location offers little. You have the option to pay MORE for a view - otherwise you have a concrete wall... More

I had a meeting for work downtown and had my first stay here. The location is great, right near the Tampa Bay Arena and convention center. There are a number of eateries nearby and a little cabana bar that sits on the water right across the street. Other parts of Tampa downtown strike me as desolate, so this is an... More

Hotel was less enjoyable this year. Have stayed here many times and was disappointed this trip. Computer upgrade in hotel caused many disturbances and frustrations. Remains a great area hotel with hotel staff attentive and friendly

Stayed here in April 2014 while in town to watch the Leaf game. Excellent location, only have to walk across the street to get to the game. Happy hour was excellent and were treated very well. The breakfast was top notch.

If this had been my first stay at an Embassy Suites hotel, I would be reluctant to ever book another stay at any Embassy Suites hotel. The fact that the low quality of this particular hotel is aberrant within the Embassy Suites chain does not constituent an acceptable excuse for their poor management. First, despite being a large hotel, the... More

We stayed for a friends wedding last weekend and there was a high school choir convention that took up literally 90% of the hotel. The staff were great and even took the time to warn us at check-in of what we were getting into. The rooms and lobby were clean, the pool was beautiful and the breakfast and cocktail hours... More

The room with two double size beds was just average. They rooms were clean. The lobby is nice. The complementary breakfast is great, they cook you a fresh omelette right in front of you. The price per night is high. The location is great, if you need to be by the Convention Center, Aquarium or catch a Hockey Game. Valet... More

This Embassy Suites has a fantastic staff that treat you like you are staying at the Ritz. The venue is perfect for events at the sports center next door and the Tampa Bay Convention Center on the other side of the hotel.
