From the complimentary cocktail hour to the complimentary breakfast this hotel is a gem right in the heart of Tampa. Take advantage of the close proximity to the theme parks, MOSI and USF and the free shuttle! Highly recommend this hotel!

On a recent visit to Tampa we stayed at the Embassy Suites near Busch Gardens. The whole experience was great but the free breakfast with eggs cooked to suit was perfect. All chefs did a good job but Elba Tyron, who assisted, was always pleasant and happy. You could easily see that she liked her job. Gloria also made sure... More

The staff of this place is awesome! Marina was so helpful! Awesome experience and was so nice to see her helpful smiling face after a hard day of work. The free ice cream for Hilton Honors members was a pleasant suprise.

Conveniently located near USF and Busch Gardens, our room was great; staff was super, and our breakfast (including fresh fruit and a delicious omelet), was wonderful. Excellent business center and exercise room too.

As stated by others, this is an older property but it has been updated. Perks were great: complimentary made to order breakfast, ice cream, bottled water. Was fairly close to restaurants-you would need a car. My room was roomy, clean and comfortable. Safe environment. Not sure why they charge for unsecured self parking.

We stayed here for one night as a base for a two day visit to Busch gardens. We arrived at 0955 with a view to taking the shuttle to Busch gardens for opening time as every good theme park goer knows, the first hour at any park is the best of the day. Anyway, on going to the reception we... More

I love the staff at this hotel. An employee brought us extra towels and offered to put a pad on the sofa bed and make it up for us! We were surprised by a $5 parking charge on bill, but it was corrected with no hassle. The bathroom counter is conveniently long and deep. Hilton Honors club members get 2... More

This was the selected hotel for a conference that I attended. There were some good things: 1. Breakfast is free every morning, and the food was really good. 2. There is also a reception/happy hour every evening with free, unlimited drinks and snacks for guests. 3. The hotel shuttle is very prompts and will take you to a number of... More

Greeted warmly at check-in, recieved discounted rate that was unexpected. Breakfast was bountiful: something for everyone with a large time window to enjoy it. Since we have a 3 year old, the suite helps him sleep while mom and dad stay in the other room. Location on USF campus was great as both my wife and I are alumns and... More
