I am a Navy reservist and have had to travel to Tampa on more than one occassion. I normally stay at the Residence Inn downtown but decided to stay at a "flashier" hotel since my 7 year old daughter and Mom would be joining me for part of my stay. My initial impression of the hotel was that it just... More

My stay at the Embassy Suites Tampa was great. Was in town on a business trip. Location of hotel was great. Located within walking distance of several downtown restaurants. Will recommend this hotel to others.

This hotel is dated in many ways. From the carpet that is coming off the floors to the fee for local calls and charging for wi-fi access, this hotel is charging fees that most other major hotels did away with years ago. Perhaps my biggest pet peeve is that the hotel uses thermostats with a motion sensor. So when one... More

I stayed three days here recently for business. The hotel is very nice for an Embassy Suites - felt like a real step up from their usual style. It is primarily a business and convention type hotel. Clean spacious suites with great desk and work facilities. Free internet was helpful. Easy walk to several nearby restaurants and bars in the... More

The rooms were fine and I enjoyed the included breakfast. However, I don't like to be charged for parking and for internet access. With most hotels, both are free. If this hotel had not been close to my meeting, I would not have stayed here. Next time, I will know to stay a little further away and save about $35.

First, I don't know how this hotel could only have 1 person working at the front desk at almost all time nearly 400 rooms. Second, you'll wait at least 3-4 minutes for an elevator. Finally, this hotel has a MAJOR security problem and I wouldn't stay here if it was your last option. My room key wasn't working so I... More

The hotel was across the street from the marriott and right near the water. I really enjoyed walking at night along the river bank and trying near by places to eat. The breakfast was outstanding and the service was good also for the managers reception in the evening. I'll be back!:)
