We're locals and decided to enjoy the Tampa downtown nightlife for a a weekend. The Embassy Suites downtown was a great location next to the convention center, the trolley stop, harbor island, the St. Pete Times forum, downtown building and channel side. The room was great - very high up which we loved, but is not for everyone. If you have a fear of heights ask for a lower floor room in this hotel because it has a clear glass railing around all floor walkways surrounding an open atrium over 15 stories high. The elevators are glass walled as well. The room was a corner with 2 rooms and pretty quiet. The pool is small but has a nice deck with a walkway to the convention center. Breakfast was good as usual, but the seating a little crowded. Three is a lobby bar and a themed restaurant "Trolley Station." The actual trolley stop is right in front of the hotel. Be sure to take the trolley to Chanelside, restaurants/bars in Ybor City or through downtown. You can walk to Jackson's on Harbor Island and many downtown spots. Be sure to take the river walk along the Hillsborough River at night - it is very pretty and all of the bridges are lit up. With a little maneuvering you can take it down to Curtis Hixon park - if you are lucky enough to hit it on a concert or event night it will add to the fun! All parking is valet.
