Hotel staff was very friendly. The hotel was very clean. We always stay here when we visit our son at USF. It is a little more expensive than some other hotels but is well worth it. I love the complimentary cocktails at night and the breakfast bar is great.

Had to stay here for a meeting I had to attend, price was right, accommodations were nice, clean, spacious free breakfast left something to be desired, nice to have beer and wine available for free at ngiht for happy hour, but the accompanying snacks were pretty unexceptional

Our tennis league used the banquet facilities for our annual banquet and the staff, food and service were excellent. Pascal Pisoni, banquet director, was courteous, professional and very accommodating, The day was a complete success and to please 240 women if not an easy task.

We just wrapped up a very successful three day transit training workshp for 200+ attendees at the USF Embassy Suites Tampa -- due in large part to the professionalism and quality of the hotel staff.

My overnight stay at Embassy Suites was wonderful! Great accommodations and excellent service. It felt like home away from home. Beds were comfortable and the room was very inviting. Will be back again I'm sure!! Highly recommend this hotel in the Tampa area if you are going to Busch Gardens.

This has been our 13th year of hosting a multi-day event at the Embassy Suites Hotel-USF. Conference facilities are acceptable. Hotel rooms and the entire reservation/check-in process is subpar - there seems to be a lack of communication between event planning and the "front desk" or, the "front desk" is simply lacking in customer service skills.
