“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

This Embassy Suites is in a good central location for Tampa. I stay here often when in Tampa for business because it is close to the airport and right across the street from the Mall and plenty of places to eat.

The hotel seems a little dated and could use some upgrades in the carpeting, bathrooms and walls. The staff are generally very friendly and helpful.

One of the things about this hotel I hate is that you are required to pay for parking. There are so many other hotels in proximity with free parking that I often choose other hotels just over this fact.

If I am in town without a rental car, I will often stay here because I can walk across the street to the mall with a movie theater and lots of places to eat dinner.

The views aren't great, you can see downtown on one side with a huge freeway or not much of anything on the other side of the hotel.

I had a wonderful vacation here. The people were very nice. My room was beautiful. Food was really good. The house keeper provided us with everything we need in our room. The manager's special is very good as well. The pool area is wonderful on those hot days.

This hotel was beautiful and our room was fabulous. The Manager's Reception was perfect after a long flight. We also loved the breakfast the next morning. It was a great start to our honeymoon cruise out of Tampa!

If you are looking for a quiet room, i was impressed with Embassy Suites Tampa - close to the airport. It was central air vs a wall unit, made the room quiet and was able to get a good night sleep! Friendly staff in the breakfast area, helpful.

Our stay was very nice and we will most likely be returning. There were lots of great things, but some not so great. Pros: We loved having the extra room since we were traveling with a child. The small kitchen area with fridge and microwave was excellent too! The Hospitality Hour was a very pleasant way to relax after a busy day - the drink selection was wide and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was always great with a wide selection and plenty of tables. Cons: The bathroom was lacking: towel racks, counter space and a shower curtain that fit. Out of a 5-day stay, we only saw our room cleaned three times. It would have been nice to have a balcony that we could use to enjoy the view.

Dear gracetraveler5,

Thank you for the review of our hotel. I appreciate your candid feedback and will be sure to pass along the "pros" and "cons" to the appropriate departments. I will be following up on the housekeeping service. You should have received it each day and will try to determine where it was was lacking.

Average hotel. Amenities nice, but breakfast was lacking in quality and cleanliness. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool area was nice. Bed was very firm, but we like it that way. Overall rating would be AVERAGE.

Thank you for the review of our hotel. I was happy to hear you found the pool area and staff service to be great! We understand the importance of the breakfast experience each morning and are sorry to see it was not to your standards. I will address your review with our leadership team and see what we can do to make that area of the hotel even better.

so i can't give a full rating, but the internet moves more slowly than an old lady in the passing lane.

Other than that, the front desk staff was friendly and professional.

Be sure to bring your own cellular wi-fi.

Dear PatientTraveler2011,

Thank you for the review of our hotel and the great comments about the staff. I am going to look into the issues with the internet. I understand how frustrating that must have been. We very rarely have issues so our provider must have been doing some maintenance on the system.

Thank you again,
