Stayed at this hotel and it was very comfortable - close to a lot of amenities, USF and Busch Gardens easy access off interstate - great parking availability quick check-in and check out. I did not utilize the pool or fitness but I did get a good night's rest - was on 7th floor, the scenic elevators were quick too.... More

Beautiful facility and great breakfast buffet. All personnel very courteous and helpful. However, no free internet in room and cleanliness could be improved. Very expensive for value received, but I imagine location dictates the price.

First the positives. Location is the best thing Embassy Suites has to offer. If visiting Busch Gardens or USF, this is a good choice. The included breakfast from 6:30 - 9:30 offers variety and plenty of table space. Now for the negatives. The hotel is significantly more expensive than similar area hotels. Knowing that in advance, one would rightfully expect... More

Best trip I had to Tampa thanks to Embassy Suites. The location was beautiful and the hotel was wonderful. I always hated Tampa until I stayed there. My room was very spacious, well lit and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was WAY more than a typical complimentary "toast and cereal" kind of breakfast. It was the works! Great value and great... More

We had a banquet here on Saturday April 5th and the wait staff was great. Jake Crandall was excellent in making sure we had everything we need. We had a great experience and the food was fantastic. Would recommend it for any event!

We stayed one night after being at Busch Gardens all day. Happy hour had drinks, meatballs, and snacks for kids. Their breakfast attendants were so kind and courteous and the omelet station was the best!! Close to Longhorns for dinner also!

We experienced exceptional customer service at this hotel. Each staff member we encountered provided nothing but the highest level of service. The suites are beautifully maintained and smelled absolutely terrific and clean when entering them. The Manager's reception in the evening and the morning breakfast was very nice. The pool/hot tub were nice and although we didn't use the fitness... More

Great hotel! Allowed us to check in before noon and after driving all night, this was a must! Larger rooms, great breakfast, nice outdoor pool, and free shuttle to Busch Gardens! Please remember to tip your driver! Definitely recommend!
