The Embassy Suites are a predictably good chain of high end hotels. This one is in a great location across from the convention center, near the arena, and on the edge of downtown. The complimentary breakfast is excellent, our two room suite spacious and comfortable, and service good. We'd stay here again.

We stayed here at the last minute when our cruise was delayed (and evenutally canceled). We were lucky to find a room at all since most hotels were sold out. It was great being able to walk from the port to the hotel... and there were several restaurants close by. The staff were nice... The room was clean.

First of all let me say I have never been to this hotel so I can not comment on location, the rooms or amenities. I was planning on being in Tampa for a convention starting March 11th and I did reserve 2 rooms. My reservations were made with a booking company that was in charge of my convention. I cancelled...

There are many things to like about this hotel. First, it is located right at the convention center, soccer stadium, and on the trolley line. The trolley line takes you to Ybor city (historic, cigar making area with lots of music, restaurants, shops, etc. The hotel is spacious, clean, accommadating. There is a wonderful hot breakfast and afternoon cocktail hour... More

We arrived the day prior to catching a cruise ship. We have used this hotel 3 times prior for the same reason. Rooms were clean well kept. Enjoyed both the free happy hour and full free breakfast. Staff was attentive and cordial.

We are a group of Canadians that travel each to Tampa to watch some hockey and enjoy the sun and golf. We have stayed at the Embassy Suites Tampa each of the last 6 years initially as it was so close to the NHL rink but now because of the great service.

We took the cruise package and could not have been more pleased. The shuttle service was great and very prompt. We wanted to go to a local bar there and the bell staff did not hesitate to give us exact directions. For the money this was a great stay. From the friendly helpful staff to the extremely clean property. We... More
