Overall, the Embassy Suites Downtown Tampa is a solid hotel in the heart of the city. The hotel is showing a little age, but it is clean and the price was pretty good. It is hard to beat the location if you want to be near the waterfront in downtown. The parking staff seemed to be pretty efficient despite some... More

Loved almost every thing about the hotel. Great service, nice finishes, very nice rooms. Beds (especially pillows) could use an upgrade. Bathrooms while updated have the old bathtubs - get real install a shower. Other complaints include the high cost of parking, internet and lack of a shuttle. Still if you want to stay near Channelside it is probably the... More

The best alternative on the day prior to our cruise with Royal Caribbean. We flew a puddle jumper from PCola directly to Tampa, Embassy suites recommended Blue One for $13 one way to downtown -- we waited forever, thinking they would appear - you need to call. WE should have taken a cab for the fixed $25 rate. Our lodging... More

Our family was in Tampa for a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert. It was about a one minute walk to the arena, which was wonderful for us, having small children in tow. The hotel is right on the riverwalk, which is lovely, clean and safe. The rooms were nice, fairly spacious and clean. Breakfast is included - self serve with many... More

Downtown along the river walk. We had a bay view room. Worth the extra $20. Easy to get a cab. Wish they had a cruise package like the other Embassy Suites. Rooms are large and very clean. View was the best part.

We have stayed here in the past, but this weekend it was extra busy and they were VERY poorly prepared. It took about 20 minutes just to get my car off the street as I waited for valet parking. Then, once in the lobby ,almost 25 minutes to reach the check-in desk. Once there I am informed that the room... More

Great experience at the Embassy Tampa. This was a post cruise stay, during January, was awesome to swim in the rooftop outdoor pool. We were disappointed when we did not see a hot tub, but climbed in the pool and it was very warm and wonderful! Neat experience, swimming at night on a rooftop!

This is a very nice hotel, excellent location. The room was as nice as any other Embassy Suites. The pool was a cool rooftop pool and had a neat layout. The manager’s reception is a joke. I have been to some great ones, but this location was only too happy to put out a bowl of salsa and some tortilla... More
