I had a quick 2-night stay at this hotel that seemed longer because everything was so convenient. I was there for a business meeting and arrived about 5:30 pm, just in time for a complimentary glass of wine at the hotel happy hour before dinner. We walked to a nearby restaurant, which was nice after spending several hours on a...

My daughter planned to 'camp out' to get a first in line spot to see her favorite band...a full 24 plus hours ahead. They were playing at Amalie Arena. I was incredibly nervous about the whole thing and planned to accompany her. Did some research and Embassy Suites downtown seemed to be the closest spot for me to stay. Wow,...

This hotel is a short walk across a bridge to convention center. The location is right on the scenic river walk and a stop on the trolley route. Our room was a two room suite that was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding with made to order omelets, fresh fruit, bacon, etc. Our stay also included nightly...

I stayed here for 5 nights in January whilst working at an event at the Tampa Convention Center. The hotel is in a perfect location for the Convention Center and there is even a walk way from the hotel straight into the exhibition center. From the outside the hotel looked quite nice, however inside it looks very tired and in...

This is a beautiful hotel - very luxurious amenities, wonderful beds, and a beautiful pool. The suite was huge - perfect for our family of four. We chose this hotel because it's located right near the cruise ship port, and would highly recommend it for people who are getting on or off a ship.

Breakfast and room service were fine. Internet was fine in Meeting room on level 2. Stayed for 3 nights and was never able to use Internet from my room. Called support 3 times, 3rd time the call mysteriously hung up. Didn't call back, assumed they didn't care. For any sort of business activity I definitely would not recommend this Property.
