This is the worse experience by far I've ever had at a Hilton. I've been a Hilton Honors member for just about 2 years now and I have over 15 stays at different Hiltons throughout the U.S. The Embassy Suites in Tampa is the worse. The first room they put me in was having AC issues. It would not go...

A great hotel in the heart of downtown Tampa and waterfront. The hotel has convenient public parking across the street in the parking garage and the hotel is located adjacent to the Tampa Bay Convention Center.

Very Nice staff and the cook to order breakfast was very good. A nice safe location although that section of Tampa is a bit "quiet", not much nightlife. I did however find a nice sports bar called Hattricks within walking distance to watch some college football.

This is a first class hotel that is located in a great location in downtown Tampa. The staff was very friendly and the evening reception is great! We did encounter a hot water issue during our stay but, the hotel was right on it after a phone call trying to resolve the issue. I would definitely recommend this location.

This Embassy Suites is a regular stop for us after attending Bucs games to save the long drive home across the state. The rooms are large and well appointed for a fair price and the breakfast is above and beyond most hotel breakfasts at any chain. The location is convenient and the staff is friendly. However, on our last visit...

I typically like Embassy Suites but this one did not hold up to my expectations. Noisy pipes, disappointing happy hour, missing breakfast items, expensive parking are just a few. Overall the room was nice. Internet access very slow at times.

Tampa is truly a beautiful city and the Embassy Suites is in a great location to enjoy the city. There is some do and see Tampa, Florida. The breakfast at the hotel could be a little longer in the mornings and they could put some body wash in the rooms.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night as we were going to a concert at the Amalie Arena - the location could not be better, equally perfect for access to the Convention Center. We hadn't stayed at an Embassy Suites before and we chose it instead of the Marriott across the street because of the free cooked breakfast, which...

Great location. Do not feel like you are in downtown at all! Right next door to Amalie arena and Riverwalk. Short easy drive to airport and Raymond James stadium. Rooms are clean. Awesome free breakfast and nightly happy hour which was a nice perk. Starbucks on site. On site small bar/restaurant. Friendly staff. Minor issue with room key and was...
