Just checked in earlier today and discovered bra on floor of our room doesn't belong to me??? We have 2 rooms here and I'm kinda grossed out. We are staying for long weekend and this is our family vacation. Wanted connecting rooms which were not available. Wanted bay view corner room also not available. Again here for 4 nights and...

All of the customer service in the world can't make up for broken elevators when there are 3+ events going on at this hotel! My family of 4 were in Tampa for a funeral, so not there for the large groups gathered. We had problems w/ our room that needed troubleshooting, which is what the hotel must do all weekend... More

I made a reservation at this hotel months before my expected stay. At that time I was told that it would be no problem to change the reservation as long as I did so at least 72 hours ahead of time. Now, they have come up with a fake policy saying that they have a 3 night minimum stay but... More

We traveled from Sarasota on a "Girls Weekend" to Tampa for shopping and fun. Rooms were good sized and we loved having a kitchenette and living room. Room cleaning could have been a little better (paperclip and crumbs on the floor) and it was very hot until we complained and suddenly our room was cooler without us lowering the thermostat....

Staff was nice, but different elevators were out of service all weekend, making for long waits. Room cleaning was a little shoddy. Breakfast was good. Restaurant food was good, but limited menu, and a little pricey. Hated paying $15 a day for internet while there for work. Overall ES's are comfortable, this weekend it seemed overwhelmed.

We enjoyed a stay at Embassy Suites during a recent convention in Tampa. Location can't be beat if you want to be downtown. Hotel is located just off the bay with the trolley line running right in front of the hotel and also close to the river walk trails. You can take the trolley to downtown and to the Aquarium... More

I was privileged to stay at the Embassy Suites in downtown Tampa for five nights when I attended a conference at the Tampa Convention Center in June of 2013. I was immediately impressed by the hotel lobby, a spacious and lovely area with fountains and much greenery. We were whisked on a glass elevator to our 11th-floor room, overlooking that... More

Very good location if you have business at the Tampa Convention Center. Otherwise, not a lot to do in downtown Tampa, which obviously isn't Embassy Suites' fault. No major complaints, though I hate that I had to deal with valet parking. The room was clean, though the pillows were too soft. In-room Internet was a rip-off at $15 per night,... More

The usual two room suite which is excellent. Nicely furnished and clean. Helpful staff. If you are going to an event at the Convention Center this is great as there is an elevated walkway to the center. The price was reasonable, at least at the convention rate. Would have been 5 rating, but the in-house restaurant/bar is very limited. The... More
