I usually have great experience at Embassy suites but this location is way under par. The first night i encountered roaches in kitchens, the bed wasn't as comfortable. Next morning i asked them to change the room and they didn't apologize or anything. They did give me another room which was a little better.

Hotel was very nice especially the interior. Free shuttle to Busch Gardens was a plus. Highest recommendation goes to "Gloria from Peru" @ breakfast. Seated us in our favorite spot every day, very cheerful. If the management reads this give here a raise, bonus or at least a pat on the back and thank-you for making your guests feel at... More

Employees were very friendly and professional. The room was very clean. When I checked in, I found that the wooden frame of one of the coat hangers in the closet was broken at the point where the metal hook was inserted. The wood was completely splintered at the point where the hook was attached. I left the hanger on top... More

We got two rooms for the 8 of us. The food was fantastic, especially the free breakfast. A full breakfast, not just continental. The rooms were clean, as was the whole place. The elevator ride has a breathtaking view of the center of the hotel. The hotel smelled nice too. I have to give a special shout out to Jessie... More

We had the best experience on our last night at the hotel. Our company hosted a dinner with a DJ and dance. It was so much fun and the wait staff were invited to participate. They made the night even better!!!! Our stay was very nice. Our room was a suite with plenty of space. The breakfast, pool and bar... More

This was a great all suite hotel. We were treated to a room upgrade by the Guest Service manager for being a Hilton Honors Gold member. I have no complaints at all about the room, it was very spacious with 2 televisions and everything was clean. The free breakfast in the morning was very good. The pancakes could have been... More

We were recently at ES-USF for the Power Soccer tournament. Everything was great! On our departure day we got a little behind packing all the medical equipment for our son. When we came downstairs it was a little over 9:30 and we knew breakfast time was over. But since we saw the food line was still up we thought we'd... More

I like staying here. Clean, friendly, includes breakfast and free evening happy hour with snacks. They had a guy playing the violin and he was absolutely great. Very relaxing. Room was clean and spacious. I wish I had brought my own pillow, but I am really picky about that.

The accommodations that you get at the Embassy is personal. The rooms are large and clean and makes you feel at home. The staff all are so sincere. The only downside is that they are not pet-friendly, thank you Doreen Quilit
