The room size is great and is the perfect location if you have something to do at the Sundome or college. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The water pressure was terrible and room hot with ac on... More

Our experience at Embassy Suites near USF was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Everyone we ran into, from reception to maintenance made us feel like family. The rooms were extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was extensive, including an omelet bar and having a choice of strong coffee was definitely a winner for... More

Always a pleasure to dine at Mangroves Grill. Hostess Marie is always professional, positive and pleasant. Outstanding clean buffet with high variety salad bar and wonderful deserts. Best I see in my travels.

Check in is fast, very friendly, and very efficient. Room was very clean - it was almost as if I was the first person to ever stay in the room! I was concerned that there would be a large crowd for breakfast, but there were plenty of available tables and chairs. Breakfast - as it always is at Embassy Suites... More

My husband and I took a quick weekend trip to Orlando and Tampa. The Embassy Suites was near Busch Gardens and the University of South Florida. It was rather out of the way if you weren't going to those two places. We went to the Hard Rock Casino and Downtown. The hotel was clean and a good value, but needs... More

He gave the hotel instant creditability with his knowledge and charm. Burt explained the hotel services, price, surrounding with confidence and in return we felt the same way. It was easy to understand that Burt enjoys and is proud to be working for Embassy Suites

This hotel is located with NOTHING to do around it! There is a college campus close by, but you are advised by the hotel NOT to walk around by yourself in this area. So, for a business meeting, the hotel is nice enough, but for the spouses that came along...there is really nothing to walk out and about and do.... More

This hotel is horrible. Not only do you get a room full of carpet stains but you get roaches too and all included with the price of your stay. The shower has black stains everywhere plus dust all over the room. This is very disappointing. I gave it two stars because the breakfast was really good but prior to that... More

The hotel was great! I would highly recommend it. The morning breakfast was superb and had a large selection of hot food and beverages. Also, the evening reception of alcoholic beverages was also great.
