Hotel pluses= location is excellent, size of the suite is good, two tv's nice feature, breakfast included a plus. Minuses= no free wi fi even in the lobby a major negative, $ 14.95 a day for access when only ten or twenty minutes is needed a major disappointment. The weekend I was there was also the weekend for a large... More

I recently stayed here with some friends for the Coldplay concert in June. It was an excellent hotel. Breakfast was great. Lots of choices. Starbucks in the lobby was an added bonus. Didn't get to use the pool but it looked nice and clean as well. Nice Staff, beautiful and clean rooms. Ordered room service. It was excellent. Would definitely... More

We stayed one night before a cruise - great location for the Port. The valet area was incredibly backed up when we arrived, there's no room for people to drop off things without it getting congested. Once we got through that we had to wait for our rooms to be cleaned. While waiting in the lobby we were shocked at... More

This is decent hotel, located in a nice spot right next to the convention center and the waterfront. Despite the quaint scenery, the hotel has a rowdy vibe. Breakfast was a circus, but tasty (although they may serve the worst coffee I've ever had... hence the forever line at the hotel's Starbucks). The rooms were fine. Overall I would probably... More

I stayed here for a convention in June 2012. The Embassy Suites is a typical property, and although the room had been well used, everything seemed clean and in good working order. WiFi was an extra $10 per night, which is an absolute rip off when the room rate exceeds $200 per night. The breakfast and manager's reception were very... More

Hotel is in a great location - next to the convention center and a short walk to Channelside. Rooms are clean, modern and quite large. The breakfast is excellent! Only drawback to the hotel is the parking is valet only ($20) and self park is across the street.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for only one night while attending a concert at the Tampa Times Forum. It was a decent stay overall. Hotel was very clean and staff was very helpful. I am not a fan of valet only, particularly at $20 a night. Complete rip off but that's pretty much the norm at ANY... More

Stayed here cause it was the host hotel for a 3 day convention at the Convention Center next door. Catwalk to the C/C made it simple and safe to get back and forth. Large bedroom, clean suite and bathroom, loved the separate living room and wet bar with fridge and microwave. Very friendly and accommodating staff, excellent cooked to order... More

I titled this review "A Door to Another Star" for this reason: I would've given this joint 5 stars if the doorknob to my room would have functioned correctly. I was only on the property 24 hours.
