I have been dealing with Joyce Turner for the last 5 years and have had a wonderful experience with this Embassy Suites. The warmth that is shown by the staff makes you feel like you are in your own home. It is definitely a homey experience. It almost makes you feel like not going home.

The AC had massive amounts of MOLD on it, and it made us all very sick. The Cleaning lady (who could not speak a word of Engrish), stole stuff from our room, we cought her red handed, and the staff treated us like crap because we reported it. The excuse was they thought we were checked out. We were not,... More

A nice, clean hotel that's minutes away from Busch Gardens, the Museum of Science and Industry, and USF campus. I was there for a science fiction convention and driving to the area, I was very impressed by the local attractions in the area. The initial impression of the hotel was airy and open. During the trip, the staff juggled several... More

The hotel is in a nice location. Breakfast included an omelet station, oatmeal, grits, and other hot items. Fitness center was adequate and included free weights and cardio equipment. The staff is very accommodating. We needed something notarized and Steve Amatrading was kind enough to help us out!

The complementary breakfast is wonderful. The staff there always seems willing to help. If you have a large group the have a shuttle services for within 5 miles. The location is quick from the interstate and if you have a conference at USF it is the perfect location.
