We stopped by the Embassy Suites to stay one night to go to the hockey game. The location is great, it is within 2-3 minutes of the St. Pete's Times Forum. The rooms were spacious, clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. Beautiful bay views from the higher floors, and parking right across the street in the parkade. We went to the Hard Rock Casino after the game, it was about 20 minutes by taxi- we thought it was a little closer, as per the description on the internet.
We didn't eat in the hotel but there is a Starbucks off the lobby which was great for morning coffee.
All in all, good hotel, great location for the convention centre and arena. Everyday price is about 268.00$ per night, I think this is overpriced for a 4 star.
We booked 3 days before game on hotels.com and got the room for 168$ per night. This is more reasonable.
I wouldn't pay full rate to stay here, but I would go back for 168.00$ per night.
