Hotel was loud but this was during convention, they were at capacity yet services ran like it was 1/2 full so this created Lines for everything. Starbucks in Building GREAT but it closes before you finish Dinner 7pm. I mean what Starbucks closes at 7pm seriously! The internet in the room was so slow my pages would just time out,...

Stayed with my family here at Embassy over the weekend and were very pleased. The hotel is beautiful, the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and well appointed. The main attraction for us was the beautiful view. Stunning views of the river, bay and surrounding city along with it's proximity to the Arena, Museum, Riverwalk, Trolley and so...

Great stay, as usual. Location this time was a plus. Very nice comfortable suites with Starbucks on site! Trolleys café was also really good. Huge building, but still the usually great customer service by Hilton. Conveniently located at walking distance of the convention center and other hotels.

Conference room was spectacular. We stayed for the weekend for Gasperilla and had terrific time. Check in was a breeze, the bell boys were out of this world - VERY accommodating, acknowledging us from previous years. Only downfall was two of the four elevators were not working.

This location is a great walk to Amalie Arena and convention center. Just happened to check in when a LARGE convention was checking in but we were able to handle the wait. The parking is what kept this from getting 5 stars; it is a nightmare and those workers deserve more money. We order room service since the restaurant was...

This Embassy Suites is located in a quiet section of downtown Tampa. A Modern hotel which includes a buffet breakfast and a 2 hour cocktail, all rooms are suites ( hence the name) and includes a small kitchen area. Rooms are spacious and clean. Walking distance to the arena and the departure point to cruises.

We had a great time at this hotel. We were there for my cousin's wedding and stayed for three nights at the end of January. The room was super nice and had a great view.

Just stood in line one hour to check in for my room. There is still a line stretching across the lobby. I have stayed in plenty of hotels but this has got to be the worst experience ever. No manager in site. How does anyone run a hotel this badly? Stay away from this place.

I love where this hotel is located because you can pick up the trolley right outside and go Channelside and Ybor City in a matter of minutes. The Convention Center is directly across the street. The nightly reception and the breakfast with the made to order omelets is excellent.

The hotel has a great location if you are attending an event at the convention center or the Amalie Arena. That's it. There is a $24 parking fee (valet parking is the only option), the staff in general are inattentive and impersonal. Nothing at the hotel has any ambiance or charm. They do serve complimentary breakfast (the omelet cook is...
