I have scheduled many educational events over the years with this property, and have found it to be a good property, conveniently located, with a staff that aims to please and make sure my events go well. Unfortunately I outgrew the originally reserved ballroom in the hotel for this event and instead of curtailing attendance, I decided to accept their... More

This hotel offers great value for the money. Although the rooms are a little bit dated, they are spacious, clean and very quiet. It offers breakfast and room service. Internet and parking were an additional expense. However, the wireless internet was very fast and worth every penny. The location was very convenient and is near USF, local theme parks and... More

While in the Tampa, FL area I had an opportunity to visit the Embassy Suites for an event. Although I did not stay at this hotel, I was on site for approximately 4.5 hours and experienced great service from the front desk staff and the wait staff serving during our banquet. The server assigned to work our table (Myriam Sanchez)... More

My average review isn't a bad reflection of this location as much an overall review of the hotel model. The staff here was pleasant, the atrium beautiful - although at times very noisy, the towels are big and fluffy and the shower was great. Right off the USF campus. My beef is that they still charge for WiFi. Just add... More

The proximity to those attractions is great...the hotel is only a couple of minutes per car away and you can also reach some restaurants (Olive Garden etc.) by foot if you... More

I spent three days and nights at this Embassy Suite property located on land adjacent to the University of South Florida and just down the road from Busch Gardens. Located in North Tampa, this Embassy Suites is far enough away from Tampa International that you'll need a taxi or limo to get there. Getting there, though, is well worth it.... More
