Nice hotel and property; what you would expect from Embassy Suites. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice location near trolley stop. Very crowded during the manager's reception due to Aerosmith concert next door at the arena. Pros and cons to that. Would be a good place to stay for events at the arena or prior to a cruise.

Managers Reception at 5:30- 7:30 snacks, drinks okay, nothing special- chips, salsa, pretzels. Internet is $15.00 for the night (i consider this a minus) A huge plus and savings was the proximity...

Checked in the night before election night. The hotel quoted a room rate both online and in person and failed to inform me at check in that there was a rate change in the middle of my stay.

My wife and I stayed here for a night before our cruise from Tampa. I had stayed here previously back in 2008 and in the 4 years I feel it has slipped some. Check-in was a breeze and we were given a room on the 14th floor. While the room was clean you could see that the furniture was worn.... More

Wonderful place if you don't care to sleep at all. Clean and the staff seems very pleasant, however the noise level is beyond ridiculous. I am here now and wish I could post the audio of what I am listening to. Even in a suite with the interior door closed can hear this. Save yourself the money and stay anywhere... More

I really enjoyed this hotel for my business trip which included a gig at the convention center in downtown Tampa. The rooms are beautifully updated, with nice furnishings and great amenities. As a Diamond Hilton member, I received an 'upgrade' to a double-bed suite, even though I was jealous of the Marriott residents across the street with balconies on their... More
