Enjoyed my stay and will visit again. You can rely on Embassy to be located in safe and pleasant areas, this hotel is convenient to everything including major highways and it only took me about 25 mins from airport. Many places nearby to dine or fast food is also readily available

With a number of destinations planned in the Tampa Bay area this Embassy Suites was the perfect location for us. We had easy access to downtown, Ybor City, Clearwater, Sarasota, and the airport. While we could have used some help with luggage the walk from the driveway to the elevator to the room was not very long. Parking was easy... More

I planned a small meeting here and what a disappointment. I should have known when the chaos started at the time I called to inquire about the possibility of hosting a meeting at this hotel. It appears management is much more concerned with profits as opposed to customer service. It is a shame. I will NEVER host another meeting at... More

It was a very beastly hotel. I had nice sleep and they were very nice. They took us to busch gardens on the shuttle for free. They give free breakfast and drinks at night. It was nice. You should come and stay here all year. P.S. I like turtles

I was here for a business trip and was a little disappointed with my room décor. It could be just a little more updated and the beds could be just a little more plush, however the staff at this hotel were awesome. They were polite, nice and very helpful. Special shout out to Lee the manager. He went out of... More

I have had several occasions over the past few years to visit this hotel and have always found the staff to be polite, knowledgeable, and helpful. A special thanks to Jennifer Grawunde and Lee (front office manager) for going out of their way to make our experiences so enjoyable.
