As a meeting planner who places hundreds of programs every year, you can how thorough we are when selecting a property. Not only does the hotel need to have excellent service from the start of the contracting process to the very last detail, but also clean facilities, a certain quality for food and beverage that is served and a general...

This property is an excellent option if you are visiting USF. A very good location with some USF buildings right across the street. It has a beautiful, large lobby area which has a quiet and calm feel. We were greeted with a smile by Ryan at the front desk. We were too early to check in, so we waited in... More

I was recently a guest for a My Little Pony convention this past weekend and I must say that the hotel and its staff were wonderful. Our convention was one based around kindness and charity as 90% of all the proceeds went towards the Children's Miracle Network but there was one staff member who was a prime example of kindness...

The room was fine and spacious - Personally rooms that have windows that face hallways are not my thing. But as an Embassy Suite property you do have room - nice sitting space - if you don't mind either having to keep the curtains closed or have random strangers walk by and be able to look in - fortunately the...

This hotel has horrible customer service and discriminates against veterans in military uniforms. I was not causing any problems and they discriminate against me because of my military costume. I was here for a con and was cosplaying. The helmet looks like a motorcycle helmet. I was outraged at their attitude and unwillingness to accommodate me. Never going there again.

The employees at this hotel are the best I've ever seen. From a simple smile to the most important need, they are just awesome. I can't say enough about the food service employees.

The staff was very helpful. Sara Meadows helped us for the entire planning process and set up for our room. The banquet staff, Chijioke was always there when we needed something for our room. I would love to work with this hotel again :-)
