This hotel is easy to find and close to the Tampa Airport. They have a Starbucks that opens at 5AM and has ample sitting outside. The staff is very friendly and the free breakfast is awesome but both mornings I ate there the bagels seemed old and were hard. I did attend a banquet on my last night and for... More

We stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise. It was the perfect set-up. They had a package that covered the one night stay, parking our truck there while we went on our cruise and shuttle to/from cruise port. In actuality, we didn't even use the shuttle because it was only about 1/2 mile walk to the cruise port.... More

pricey rate - but super-convenient hotel to any downtown events, especially convention center across the street, this hotel has its own walkway to the TCC. Overnight parking seems pricey until you see the rates of all parking in the area. Walked from there to everything we needed. Great room, very clean. Ice makers were broken, though - had to go...

The Hotel is a nice property and close to all Downtown Venue's as well as the Streetcar that goes into Ybor city. However Parking ins expensive and inconvienent at best. With the avaliablity of the Airport Shuttle, as well as the Streetcar and HEART line for transit. Good access to all of TAMPA is avaliable to you.

If you like the typical Embassy Experience you may like this hotel, however, I found it crowded and a problem from the start. It took 15 minutes to get a cart and help with luggage. I had done an e-checkin and still waited an hour to get my room keys. They simply are slow and don't care if you are... More

This is a beautiful property. The location is perfect for a pre cruise stay. The port is only a few minutes away in a taxi. The room was large and had wonderful views of the city ( ask for a high floor). There is a trolley directly in front of the property that takes you to Ybor city. There are... More

Embassy Suites are consistent with their brand. Nice place to stay prior to cruise. Just very hectic at breakfast time with elevators and dining room space. I would stay here again. Close to cruise terminal.

Have just stayed once again at this property as it has a great location to both the Amalie Forum to watch a hickey game and also just blocks away from the Port to catch your cruise ship. The good is the location, the cleanliness of the property, and the housekeeping staff. The bad on this trip was the lack of... More

We stayed here for a night while attending a Lightning game at nearby Amalie Arena (a 5 minute walk). Had requested a king bed and was given two queens but the front staff kindly corrected that.

Stayed here for a work conference across the street. Location is great, right near the water and Riverwalk. Breakfast was good, lots to pick from (omlets, eggs, toast, fruit, yogurt, muffins) & free happy hour with wine in plastic cups (Merlot, Cab., one white), tap beer, mixed drinks, chips & pretzels and dips, sometimes hummus. Breakfast and happy hour are... More
