We recently stayed at the Embassy Suites for a wedding weekend and had a wonderful time! The location is great and there is a trolley right out front that runs every 20 min for easy traveling. Our room was great and housekeeping was very accommodating. The hotel had complimentary breakfast with made to order omelettes- so good! I would highly...

Great location and reasonably priced. Free breakfast, quiet spacious suites. Valet parking is an additional $24/nt, which was our choice for convenience. Otherwise $10/day parking lot directly across the street.

Stayed here for 4 days with a friend for a conference that was across the street.

I stayed 4 nights for a conference at the adjoining convention center. I really liked this hotel.

I was recently in Tampa for a convention and stayed at the Embassy Suites. They have a walkway from the hotel to the convention center which makes access very easy. Very comfortable rooms and a hearty breakfast. The happy hour provided complimentary drinks but the chips and salsa could be improved. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

The Hotel was so/so and it was very very difficult to connect to the INTERNET!? (It's 2016 people!!)The extra 50$ is worth it to stay across the street at the Marriott. It's a BEAUTIFUL hotel with very helpful staff.

I would have given this a higher rating, but one of the main reasons I chose this place was the fact that they had a 24/7 gym. It let me down. Yes, 24/7, but for such a large hotel, there were only five cardio machines and one small weight machine. the cardio bike was broken and one of the eliptical...

As a long time HHonors member, I was fairly disappointed in my overall experience with your hotel. The front desk staff was utilizing their personal cellphones at check-in. Didn't seem very interested to greet me or my wife. This is very important to me. When we up to our room, the sheets and pillow cases were dirty, had holes in...
