Stayed there for a business meeting. The restaurant staff was 5 star! The rooms were average but clean. It's conveniently located worth the stay. The only recommendation would be to update the fixtures in the bathroom. Otherwise it was a great stay!

The USF Embassy Suites is like a woodland getaway with meandering paths through trees and bush, secluded areas opening up for private gatherings, open airy space up to the ceiling, with multiple levels of overlooking rooms climbing surrounding the walls. Everyone was friendly, shuttle service was responsive and always working to serve, breakfast was expansive, breakfast help was, well, helpful... More

I stayed here for a music research conference at USF. Was very happy with the staff, room, amenities, etc. Great shuttle service to the university and back and whenever needed. There is not much else directly around the hotel other than the USF campus, but that's why I came, so it worked perfectly for me. However, if you want to... More

Recently stayed two nights at the embassy suites hotel near USF/bush-gardens. Staff were very welcoming, rooms were nice and clean, good breakfast bar, and the daily happy hour (free but limited selection of drinks) made the stay a pleasant experience. They also provide a free ride within a 3 mile radius which is very convenient due to the location of... More

Everyone at this hotel have been so friendly and helpful. Chris, the bartender was the best. We had some questions, he was quick to find the answers! Chris and the rest of the staff work hard to make it right!!

Great stay! We hosted a meeting at this location with great success. Conveniently located to the interstates as well as USF, Moffitt, VA and Busch Gardens. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Could use a renovation though.

There is a lot to like about this hotel. The rooms were spacious and the bed was very comfortable. I slept better here than I do at most hotels. The breakfast items were limited for a vegan, so I had to bring my own food. The hot tub, which I like to use after using the gym on campus, is... More

I have scheduled many educational events over the years with this property, and have found it to be a good property, conveniently located, with a staff that aims to please and make sure my events go well.
