This is your prototypical Embassy Suites experience. A nice, large suite room that can house lots of people comfortably. A great breakfast. Free drinks at night. What's not to like? This hotel is a block from the Amalie Arena -- where the Lightning and the Tampa Storm Arena Football Team play. It's also across the street from the Convention Center...

This is a very nice hotel with a great location near Channelside. We came to the hotel with the intent of getting a room with a view of the fireworks. I had called & was told that there were no rooms with such a view. When I checked in I saw on the clerks desk that there were $20 upgrades...

The motel is in areas where there are good eating places, Yber City was a good time, and located close enough to public transportation that you could navigate around downtown. We enjoyed the Convention Center being so close to our motel.

Breakfast food is excellent. Could of layed out the food better for less congestion. Nice reception. Snack could of been better. Did not care for the warm pool. The wait for the elevators were to long. The tub in the bathroom needed work.

Room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed the manager's reception and the complimentary breakfast. The hotel is located within walking distance of the Amalie Arena, and lots of restaurants and bars. The only reason I didn't rate a 5 was because the check in/out process took so long! This was the only hotel I've ever had to stand in...

The room was what you expect from a Embassy Suites- clean w/ two rooms. No complaints there. The problem was that they lost our car in the valet (TWICE!), room service would not answer the phone and they ignored our request for a crib on the reservation. Nice location.
