When choosing a hotel while traveling on business, location often trumps everything, but here you can have location, quality, and value in one hotel. If you are visiting USF, look no further. If you want 200 characters, you'll have to get someone else to write reviews for you. Feel free to keep or delete what I've written above...

Every staff member I came in contact with went more than out of their way to make sure all of my wants and needs were met. 15th Birthday for my son and his friends at Busch gardens and between the location and amenities there is NO where else to stay...besides this Embassy Suites Hotel!

This is an outstanding hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel lobby is beautiful. I have no complaints. This is pretty silly on how Trip advisor wants 200 characters. I have said all I intend to say.

This is my second stay here. It is Friday, Nov 14th. I was on the 8th floor. When I checked in I was told there would be a $5.00 parking charge. When I stayed here a month ago I was not charge any parking charge. When I questioned it, I was told it was standard practice. When I got up... More

Dear John B, Thank you for the review. We pride ourselves on great service and a great product. Unofrtunately it sounds like you did not experience either until we tried to make it right for you. I apologize for the description on the parking charge, and the lack of service on the snack machine and room service. I would love... More

I have made this comment directly to Embassy/USF in the past - to no apparent avail. I first began staying at Embassy Suites/USF due to its proximity to Moffitt Cancer Center, where my wife has been undergoing treatment and surgery. Embassy/USF is the closest suite hotel, and I can get there via a convenient back-access without having to get out... More

For me, what makes the best hotel experience is staff and the customer service they provide. Upon arrival we were greeted by Marina at the front desk with a smile, but she needs to work on having a more positive attitude. Relax a little more. The room was adequate and the view from our window was awesome! The highlights of... More

Our magazine, Tampa Bay Weddings magazine, held our fall bridal show, The Elegant Wedding Showcase at the Embassy Suites on 11-9-14. Sara Meadows and Pascal Pisoni were terrific to work with - top notch and so professional; they made everything so easy. The hotel was beautiful, and the service from their staff to our vendors and brides was outstanding. I... More

It began with a prompt desk service and hardy welcome. The room was roomy, clean and quiet. The restaurant was friendly, food was hot and timely. It was simple a great experience. I would return. This is a good property.

When we got to our room the bathroom was dirty. the staff is very helpful and made sure the bathroom was cleaned. the breakfast was very good. If this hotel had a beach in the parking lot we would stay here for a whole week.
