This was a Excellent hotel experience. Very Beautiful, Clean, Nice and Very Service oriented place. Great Breakfast Buffet and Restaurant/Bar. Shuttle service to Busch Gardens was very convenient. Every Employer was very Friendly and Nice. Especially The Restaurant Manager Leslie Ciccarello. She was Great. ; ) We will defiantly be returning to this Embassy Suites.

We stayed here for one night and booked this hotel through priceline. We were very happy with this hotel. It was very clean, excellent furnishings, huge room, and courteous staff. Breakfast was truly a treat, you could even special order your own omelettes! I would highly recommend this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Jennifer Cancho Grawunde on the sales team continues to provide amazing customer service to our organization not only for small transient travel, but also for large group bookings. The entire team works extremely hard to accomodate all of our guests needs, and we couldn't hope for a better partner hotel on-campus.

I recently dined at the Mangrove Grille at the Embassy Suites hotel and the hostess, Marie Menendez, was very friendly ~ she made our experience pleasant and we will return because of her. The service was wonderful and the food was great!

Embassy suites Busch Gardens was ok. I am used to Disney hotels, so it fell below standards. Its just average. Staff was fine, bartender great! As far as close to Busch Gardens excellent. The shuttle drive was great! Shuttle service well worth it.

Tyrone and Elba make the best omelets!!! My room was always spotless and it had an amazing view. The staff was wonderful especially when my best friend got stuck in the elevator. I didn't have any complaints. I would recommend them to everyone.

This is obviously an older property in need of renovation. I got up early, (5:30) and the shower was fine with lots of pressue and hot water, though the shower head is the older style that only gives you wide stream, pulsing or stinging narrow spray. All the fixtures were older and the fiberglass shower surround had cracked caulking. It... More

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Embassy suites. Everyone was very polite and helpful in every way possible. The only issue that I had would be if you are staying with a rather large family allow the light sleepers to sleep in the room and heavy sleepers to sleep in pull out couch. Well thats if you even...
