“Great Hotel and very nice breakfast”

Stayed for the weekend of the Gasparilla Half Marathon. They did a great job with such a large crowd. We really loved the breakfast buffet!!! Very nice and clean over all. The location is very good and close to Publix if you want to get your owen food and things

Spent a couple days here and everything about this hotel was good. The breakfast was good and free. We enjoyed happy hour which was also free and was not limited to just wine and beer. the convention center is next door and you could walk to the cruise port in ten minutes. I like Embassy suites and have stayed in many this one is one of the best.

Room Tip: If you get the lower floors it is hard to get an elevator at checkout time. You have to press up get...

The hotel staff and location, room and cleanliness was great. Free breakfast every morning was very good, and the nightly happy hour too! The only thing lacking was the limited gym facilities. Only 5 machines left a lot of people unable to work out...not a very well equipped room. I ended up not trying again after one morning with only the bike aailable

Spent a week at this hotel attending a conference at the convention centre next door. It has an open Atrium design so all the rooms are visable from the lobby. Its an older hotel so the overall appearance is a little dated but the level of cleanliness was outstanding. Maria did a wonderful job each day and would ask if we needed anything if she saw us exiting our room while she was working. Excellent value for money. Full breakfast included in room. Also Manager's reception in the evening provided free drinks and nibbles in a comfortable and relaxing manner (not a mixer more sit where you want and with whom you want and relax). The best feature of this hotel is the staff. Extremely friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile. One morning the Management was even handing out plates in the breakfast buffet line. Warm greetings as you came and went. Valet parking is stiff ($23 per day) but again, the staff were extremely prompt and courteous. I was there on business but its a great family hotel.

Clean rooms, great complementary breakfast, and one of the best bed/mattresses I have experienced in a hotel. Be aware of extra cost of valet service if you have a vehicle as there is no self-parking. Internet service cost is high and per device. Otherwise, can use business centre in lobby. Pool clean with nice view of port. No hot tub.

We stayed at this hotel as it is walking distance to tampa bay times forum where we were seeing a couple of concerts.
The hotel is just lovely done to such a high standard
The rooms are huge and decorated well.
The hotel breakfast is also really good offering a wide selection of hot and cold foods.
They also offered a free bar between 5.30 and 7.30 with snacks which was an added bonus :-)
nothing else to say as it was so good no faults at all!
