My stay at the Embassy Suites Tampa near the USF Campus was great! The staff was friendly and the service was wonderful. My daughter is a graduate student at USF and I will stay at this hotel every time I visit her. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. Wanda and Gabriel were especially hospitable and made my stay memorable.... More

Rooms leave a lot to be desired, Furnishing are old, dinged and tired looking. Bathroom sink leaks. Previous guest's food in mini frig. Morning front desk staff rude when I pointed out that I was charged for someone else's meal, cleanliness of room and leaking sink.

Enjoyed my 6-night stay at the Embassy Suites. Staff did everything possible and more to make me feel like a VIP during the stay. In particular, Schniegder went above and beyond every morning to make sure I was taken care of at breakfast. I appreciated his professionalism and service to make this stay excellent.

We have spent several weekends in a row at this Embassy Suites while family is at the VA hospital. The staff has been unbelievably welcoming and amazing.

On Saturday when we arrived Captain Rhonda and staff were superb. Rhonda left no detail incomplete. Steve checked as well to see if our group was set for the evening. The food was superb and enjoyed by... More

Free breakfast, clean rooms, slightly dated but big enough for the four of us. Free Wi-Fi free breakfast discount tickets to Busch Gardens, free shuttle... More
