Enjoyed my stay. I was there for a family reunion. We had our banquet there. Food was good. Breakfast was good especially the omelet station. Water pressure was awesome. Shower head has the multi settings so you can get a great water massage. In conclusion, I would stay here again.

We recently held our elementary school's 5th grade banquet here. Sara Meadows worked to accommodate our budget and all of our needs. The room was set exactly as planned and all of our requests were taken care of. The kids even commented on how awesome the food was! We look forward to coming back next year!

Always a great stay at the Embassy Suites at USF. whether for business or pleasure - coming up for meetings or seeing our son at USF - the hotel always performs above average. Happy hours to breakfasts - all of the meals and events are very good.

Meetings in USF took me to Tampa and I don't regret the choice of the hotel. The complexities of checking out on weekends for engagements outside Tampa and rechecking on Monday morning, bags in the luggage room .... handled with cool composure and efficiency. Breakfast is fabulous. Happy hours can be a little better in terms of quality of service.... More

We stayed 2 nights for a graduation. Hotel room although dated was clean and had everything we needed. Even a hair dryer. Free breakfast every morning and it's a pretty big spread. Only downer was you pay 5.00$ a day to park and no wifi in the rooms.a lot of restaurants are around also. Would recommend this hotel.

The Embassy Suites USF is a wonderful hotel. The staff were all helpful and very courteous. Rooms are very clean and spacious. The breakfast is out of this world. If you want it they have it. And it changes daily so there is no boredom at breakfast.

The staff at this particular hotel was exemplary with their service. The manager was very helpful in solving a slight issue that I was dealing with and housekeeping was more that accommodating in satisfying a request that I made. They go the extra mile and I would stay there again based on that fact alone.
