This was my first visit at this hotel and I had a lot of questions. I stopped a lady wearing an Embassy name tag and asked her if I could ask her a question. Not only did she answer all my questions very thoroughly but she really made me feel welcome at the hotel. She explained all of the amenities... More

Tonight I had a wonderful night and had a lot of fun. Everyone working in the hotel was extremely welcoming and friendly. Paul Dell was one that really stuck out to me. He provided me with great service, he was very polite, and he was even able to put a smile on my face which is not an easy thing... More

We've stayed here several times because it's cleaner than most hotels around Busch gardens but that's all it's got. Front desk management is very poor and forgets who the customer is. Someone ought to school these guys on why they are in business!! Little courtesies matter

The lunch buffet at Mangroves Grille at the Embassy Suites Tampa USF/Near Busch Gardens is the best in the area. The food is always fresh, hot and tastes great. If you are a USF or Moffitt employee you get an additional Discount. The Lunch Bunch membership club gives you a free lunch buffet after five visits. With beverages and dessert... More

My family and I spent 3 nights at the Embassy Suites/USF. The breakfast was horrible. Our made to order omelets were cold. The ingredients were cold inside the omelet even the cheese wasn't melted. The beds were uncomfotable. I am a Hilton honors member but wish we would have chosen the Hyatt which was around the corner. Mrs. Jones

My son and I have been staying at various Embassy Suites Hotels since he was 14 years old. He is now 32 and we are still coming back. These folks never fail to do a great job! The amenities and extras (complimentary breakfast/happy hour) more than justify a slightly higher than average room rate. This is not your run of... More

I frequently find myself traveling to the University of South Florida's main campus for business at the USF Technology Park. While there, I try to stop off for lunch at the Mangroves Grille, which is inside the Embassy Suites Hotel, directly across the street from the Technology Park, on Spectrum Boulevard. Their food is always excellent, and the atmosphere is... More

When I checked it I was informed I could not use a business check to pay for the stay, though I have never had any problem at the numerous other Embassy Suites where I have stayed. What bothered me though was that the front desk employee had to walk back to talk with a manager about this, but the manager... More

Had my wedding reception 20 years ago in an Embassy Suites so I usually love them; this one however we will never go back to! As new USF parents we chose it as it was super close, and its breakfast was rated much better than surrounding hotels-what a mistake. Yep, I agree with Seth R; the worst nights sleep thanks... More
