The Embassy Suites are a pleasant experience away from home. Wish I could stay longer to enjoy all they offer. This was a quick trip, but we plan to return in the very near future, just to enjoy the hotel.

This hotel offers good spacious rooms and a very good selection of food for breakfast. We had an issue with the bathroom and it was fix in less than 30min even though it was close to midnight. Very good personal, especially Gabriel who was very nice and make sure we were well served.

Took my girls and one of their friends to Tampa for part of their Spring Break. Upon arrival I was greeted by Jesse at the front desk. He was so friendly and helpful. I later went down to ask a few questions and he was again very informative. I appreciate all of his help, it made my first night stress... More

This hotel goes above and beyond the expectations of the most demanding client. From the General Manager, Scott Selvaggi welcoming us, being visible and approachable...His leadership is reflected within the rest of his staff, my favorites: Gabriel at breakfast, Corey and Marie in dining in, and the housekeeping staff keeping things tidy. Jessie was helpful at the front desk!

During our stay, the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. It felt like extended family, with the warm welcome and friendly smiles. The breakfast was filling and tasty. The evening cocktail hour was a wonderful way to unwind after a day at the park. The shuttle ran frequently to the park and the airport, we... More

We had a great stay, when we first checked in on Tuesday I was a little concerned because there were so many people from a wedding convention that was going on but from the moment we checked in we have had nothing but great service.

Upon check the host was very friendly and remembered us from previous stays. Our room was ready and the belle man David also remembered us, very friendly and helped us to our room. Restaurant was very good, and Damian made it very enjoyable. Good waiter! We come here several times a year as my husband is a Moffitt Cancer patient.

We had a great stay at embassy suites. So close to Busch gardens and Lowry zoo plus transportation is provided to Busch gardens. The staff is excellent and Tari the bartender was amazing. All the staff was excellent and the room was clean and comfortable.
