My teenage daughter and I were in Tampa because she was participating in the All-state chorus. Our original reservation was with the Marriott across the street, however, upon check-in there they informed me that they could only accommodate us for one night even though I had reserved three nights. It turns out they had overbooked their hotel and "were hoping that some people just wouldn't show up". I called Embassy Suites and we were very fortunate that they were able to accommodate us.
The following day, after checking out of the Marriott, I went to check in at Embassy Suites. The front desk clerk was extremely friendly, I was informed that full breakfast was included, I was able to check-in early, and the price was considerably less than the Marriott. All of their rooms are suites, so there is a living room area and a bedroom, which was very nice. We ordered room service for desserts that night and it was both fast and delicious. The hot breakfast in the morning was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had and not having to pay extra for it was a real bonus.
If you are traveling to the downtown Tampa area, I would definitely recommend the Embassy Suites. It's location is excellent if you need to go to the convention center and the trolly stop is right out front for easy access to other areas. Also, if you have kids, you will like having a living room area.
I am very happy with my experience at this hotel, especially right after such a negative experience at the hotel across the street.
