I stayed for two nights with extended family within the last week. We flew to the area due to a death in the family. We booked it as a package last minute on jetblue and were happy that it was close to the home of other family members and where my aunt's wake would be held. During check-in my cousin... More

G.E.A.R. Ministries Inc. of Tampa Florida hosted the 2015 Prayer Summit at the Embassy Suites of Tampa January 2nd-3rd. The accommodations and hospitality was impeccable. Our representative, Sara Meadows, showcases a Class Act of Elegance, Professionalism, and Courteousness. The staff was immediately responsive. We highly and proudly recommend The Embassy Suites of Tampa! Appreciatively, Levester

Don't waste your money paying extra for the premium suites where you have access to refreshment center. 90% of the time it was empty and the response from the staff, was that they didn't have anyone to fill it. Smoker? Not after 11pm unless you want to get soaked from the sprinkler system. We had a group of 15 and... More

This is my second time staying here because my daughter attends USF and it is very convenient, however it is the last time we will stay here. I got 2 two rooms because we are a large family and requested connecting rooms, I did not get that. Both times we have stayed here the rooms have been VERY hot. The... More

Huge, kick-butt suite to relax in after a long day at USF or Busch Gardens. Very clean and big rooms are perfect for a small family. Movies in the lobby with complimentary snacks are a great way to chill out after a long day. Complimentary breakfast is the perfect start to the day!

We had an outstanding experience with the manager on duty, Wanda Kittles, at the Embassy Suites USF, Tampa. She made sure my kids had every thing they needed for breakfast. She went over and beyond. We've stayed at this Embassy Suites before and have always had a great experience.

For visits in Tampa, FL I would recommend staying here. Any problems we had were handled quickly and courteously. The staff was friendly and efficient. Added to that were the breakfasts, happy hours and shuttle service run by helpful drivers who were happy to take guests anywhere within a 3 mile radius. It made our visit to Busch Gardens a... More

Great place to stay. From the moment we checked in the people at this hotel CARE about their guests. The concierge. The waitress. The bus boy. The shuttle driver. EVERYone we came into contact with was absolutely the kindest and most helpful people I've met in a long time. We stayed for NewYears at Bush Gardens and I'll never stay... More

We made a reservation by phone, we were not familiar with the area. When we arrived to the hotel we were surprised how well located it was from many restaurants, gas stations and shopping. Beautiful lobby. Good breakfast. The most important thing it was very clean and very comfortable beds. Close to Busch Gardens (Tampa, Florida)

We held our daughter's Sweet 16 party this past week at the hotel. We had some changes from the original plan but throughout the entire process Sara Meadows made what would have been a stressful situation a non-issue.
