Rooms need updating as they are looking aged especially the furniture and bathroom area. Room was clean and spacious, good deal for the space. Amenities were nice such as breakfast, live music and managers social. The fitness center was extremely hot, lacking air flow. Pool was not cleaned upon our arrival such as used towels, food and cups left out... More

We had our quiet night which is the minimum I require from a hotel, but they lost our booking, and the breakfast was just... awful. Generally I'm not a hotel breakfast eater, but we needed to this time, and it was just sad. No fruit, no forks, no cream. It seriously felt like everyone working the breakfast hated their job,...

I loved this hotel. Management and staff were awesome. Always saying hello and making sure everything was ok. The King size suite was so roomy. Nice sitting area. The room has a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave. In the evening they have a managers reception with free drinks and food. Marty, the bartender was always smiling and was quick to... More

My university hosted an educational meeting at Embassy Suites Tampa-USF in April of 2015. All of our participants found the hotel to be very nice and our hotel contact: Jennifer Cancho, offered our clients and trainers wonderful hospitality. When we return to Tampa for another meeting, our first contact will be Jennifer and the Embassy Suites Tampa-USF

Embassy Suites are generally a good value given the space and configuration of rooms and the hot breakfast. BUT, this property is in desperate need of a refresh ...everything looks and feels outdated. The furniture is faded and chipped, the carpets are worn and everything about the place says "high miles." For less money, I'll stay at a Springhill Suites... More

What a great experience! Hotel staff was very helpful, even making perfect restaurant recommendations for whatever our mood. Our only problem was that housekeeping never left enough towels. So every day we had to call to have another towel delivered. This got rather annoying, but we always got what we needed in under 5 minutes. For a more budget friendly... More

When I hear Embassy Suites, I imagine more. I think that the weekend we were there was an extremely busy one for them because it didn't seem like a normal ES. I love the atrium concept but this one seemed very loud to me. The place wasn't as clean as I expected. As I walked through I thought some of... More

We found roaches in our hotel room during our stay at this hotel. We reported it to the front desk, and they agreed to move us to another room. Though the damage was already done at that point. Also, the front desk personnel had no personality at all. With the exception of one of the managers, the staff clearly seemed... More
