This hotel is connected to the Tampa Convention center. My family visit was in the middle of chaos. A 17,000 visitors Gospel Convention was in town July 3rd. The hotel handled this better than expected. Staff was quick and managed to still be friendly. Hotel is in walking distance of a lot of activities and trolley outside of hotel. We... More

Very dissapointing for an Embassy Suites. The location was great and some of the bell hops were very sweet. Other then that...not good. The floors were filthy. Our tub was clogged and the mini fridge was iced up. Not major issues but still an inconvenience. WiFi was extremely slow and the hotel was SO hot. The hallways and the lobby... More

This hotel is wonderful from the appearance, size of rooms to the professional friendly staff. Breakfast was included and it was great not your typical free breakfast at an hotel. I would recommend this hotel. Jamie

Hotel is located next to Convention Center and appeared to be ideal for attending events at the Convention Center. Breakfast buffet was included with the room charge and it turned out to be quite good with made to order omelets. We had a suite which was spacious and beds were comfortable. There was a Starbucks in the hotel lobby which... More

The luxury and well maintained room made for a very relaxing stay. Everything was so clean, up to date, and well maintained. The complimentary breakfast did not taste like your typical free hotel breakfast, it was very tasty. The outdoor pool was very warm and relaxing. I also enjoyed the Starbucks that was connected to the hotel. Overall great stay!

This is a newer Embassy Suites property in downtown that is very attractive but seems to have had some serious environmental challenges while I stayed there. When I checked in and went up to my room, the temperature in the room showed 74 degrees. Cranked down the AC and went to dinner, can back and temp was at 72 degrees.... More

Relatively new hotel - great location - right across from the convention center and connected by a skywalk (uncovered). Also near the streetcar line so it is a quick trip to Ybor or the Channel Side district. Parking is valet only - the single drawback with this hotel - not a problem if you are walking to the convention center... More

I stayed here on a July 4th Staycation, mostly to see the fireworks display conveniently.The good part for me: The bathroom was outfitted w/ the nice tall comfortable toilets so that you aren't sitting at calf level and need help getting up. Very senior friendly that way. I also got a room with a great view of the fireworks. I... More
