I did not know what to expect with the Embassy Suites since it is brand new (no Trip Advisor Reviews yet) and I was attending a meeting there that was planned by someone else. I was very pleasantly surprised. The location is excellent being just off I-75 and a 10 minute drive, straight shot on surface streets to Ybor City, downtown Tampa, Baywalk, and almost anywhere you would want to go. Also the suburb of Brandon has tons of restaurants and shopping in the surrounding area.
The hotel itself is beautifully decorated in an updated style with the usual Embassy Suites layout of rooms around a center atrium with a striking water feature, comfy seating and tables, excellent complimentary breakfast and afternoon cocktails. The service was warm and friendly. The rooms beautifully done in restful kind of spa-zen colors, puffy pillowtop mattresses with lots of pillows, big flat screen TV's in the bedroom and sitting room, spacious bathroom with good lighting and attractively done with brushed chrome and natural stone.
I cannot think of one negative to my stay. Bottom line - beautiful hotel, bend-over-backwards service, great location, can't beat it.
