Wonderful stay. The room was immaculate and updated. Beautiful view of the downtown Tampa skyline lit up at night. Will definitely be coming back! Harbour Island just over the bridge has a great brunch at Jackson's and there is a water taxi for a more scenic view of Tampa and the islands.

First time staying at Embassy, it will not be my last... It was affordable, clean, comfortable, free alcohol-specific times, and free cooked to order breakfast! Nice! Nice! Nice! You could use HH points, military discount, etc...

Great hotel, great rooms, great drinks and great breakfast, what else could you ask for. It's a must to anyone getting on a cruise, you could even walk to the port. Definately recomending this hotel to others.

Great hotel in downtown. Easy to get around the downtown area using trolley which takes you to Ybor and Channelside. The hotel itself is very clean. Rooms are comfortable. Service was great. Free breakfast was awesome. For the amount of people that were eating the staff did a great job. The selection of food was great. I would definately recommend... More

The room was great, the location is fantastic for downtown, the lobby and treats in the PM are very nice. The breakfast is first class with homemade omelets, fruit and things for calorie-minded guests. The biggest drawback to this hotel is the valet parking that the City of Tampa operates. It is extremely slow. Our first day saw a 30... More

We have stayed here many times. The location is great with good views. This hotel is large so the common areas and breakfast can get very crowded. The $22 per day valet Kind of stinks but what do you expect from a downtown upscale hotel. All and all a nice clean hotel. I noticed some people complaining about noise. I... More

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.
