“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

As usual an excellent stay in the Embassy Suites, you can always guarantee clean rooms and excellent customer service. The Managers drinks in the evening is always a bonus after a hard days work! The breakfast is lovely with fresh cooked omelette and an assortment of pastries, cereals and cooked breakfast items.

The hotel overall was very nice. Nice rooms and a great breakfast. It was ridiculous that a paying guest has to pay $15/day for internet access and for parking. Much cheaper hotels offer these amenities free. For the price of an Embassy Suites room, these should be included.

We stayed here for a week while attending a conference at the connecting Convention Center. The hotel is very, very nice and the folks were more than helpful. It was a full house so there was a wait a lot for elevators and breakfast line. The breakfast was for sure worth waiting for though. The rooms were suites and very large. The major dislike was the extra $15 they get you for internet. You would think their high room rate would cover this. Nice place. Word of advice, take advantage of the train. It was cheap and very accessible.

Just like any mega-Embassy, if there is a line longer than two people it ends up taking like 20-30 minutes to get your room key. Especially if the people in front of you have a ton of questions. The front desk staff was very nice, just outmanned. The location is great. Close to the St. Pete Times Forum, Channelside, Harbour Island, and the cool spots downtown. Check out Jackson's for food justa short walk away. VALET PARKING is what you'll end up having to do.

Love the hot breakfast....the location was convenient and attractive. The staff was helpful and friendly. I love the space and cleanliness of the rooms. I have stayed with Embassy in other cities and they are consistently good. I would stay again...just wish the price point wasn't so high in some locations.

Location very close to the convention center was extremely beautiful. Walking distance to the Aquarium, Marriott and Jackson Restaurant on the River. The River Walk was very pleasant. People were friendly. The service at the Embassy Suites was outstanding. I highly recommend it.

We stayed at this hotel for a conference. It has been the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic - fresh made-to-order omelettes, fruit, yogurt, cereals, etc. The service superb - servers eager to help you with your breakfast tray, clean and comfortable rooms, incredibly helpful front desk staff. The business center with computers and printers gave me opprotunity to access my email and the Internet - so no need to carry my own laptop around for those purposes. The hotel itself is beautiful and very convenient. There is a walkway right into the Tampa Convention Center and a trolley stop right across the plaza. I have never reviewed a hotel on Trip Advisor before - but this one was well worth my time to encourage anyone coming to Tampa to check it out. Way to go, Embassy!
