You can't beat this hotel for convenience to the convention center which is why we booked it. We were at the hotel for six nights and were frustrated all six by the slow elevators. Our room was your standard Embassy Suites, suite, however the decorating was very out dated. It was dark, dreary and depressing. For the premium we paid... More

This hotel is located near cruise terminal and near Ybor city. It was clean and the front desk staff as well as breakfast staff were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast and evening cocktail reception are included. It was wonderful! We used the valet service which cost $24 per night but they were also very accomodating. Very nice experience!

So...this is our second stay at this hotel. This is a very busy hotel, adjacent to the convention center and minutes to the cruise terminals. As a result, don't expect a quiet, relaxing trip. That said, the staff is wonderful and the location is so convenient everyone wants to stay there. During our first stay there was a huge wedding... More

Listen up, Spring Breakers -- if you enjoy complimentary buffet breakfast and free drinks during the manager’s happy hours in early evenings, if you want to share a suite with your college buddies, and if you hope the River view to be within minutes of walk, this is your place to stay at. But it’s not quite my place. Here... More

This hotel is very expensive. Parking is also expensive. The breakfast is the best ever for a hotel. The evening reception had free drinks. Internet speed is bad. The rooms are nice, but our bathroom had mold.

We stayed at the Embassy Suites March 21 - March 25 while in Tampa for a conference. We enjoyed our stay very much. Jason and Dillion, two of the front desk staff went over and above to accomodate our requests. Thanks to both of you! We also loved the fresh cooked omelettes each morning at the complimentary breakfast and the... More

Check in was an issue, the staff was confused as three gentlemen checking in caused all agents to focus on the one line while leaving the other two agents positions empty. The room was just ok, bathroom needed work, shower head was not looking that sturdy and room was marginal at best.

We stayed at this Hotel and we went to the Tampa Bay Lightning game. The Hotel is in walking distance from the Arena. Nice place. Nice friendly staff. The room was clean. The breakfast in the morning was a convenient added touch.

We stayed here for a conference being held at the Convention Center and a nearby hotel. We chose this hotel over the other conference hotel because you got so much for your money. Large suite, refrigerator, microwave, separate sitting area, made-to-order breakfast (with a very nice breakfast selection) and complementary drinks and snacks in the evening from 5:30 - 7:30....

Close to convention center is the biggest plus; rooms are spacious and well equipped, but I registered early for a convention and got in late, my request for a king bed was not guaranteed and we got two full beds; elevators do not accommodate full house; slow internet unless you pay more - for the price of room fast internet...
