Next door to the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Super short walk. You are also directly at a Trolley stop which travels thru and stops in Channelside, at the Florida Aquarium and various stops in Ybor City. Service is very frequent and inexpensive (late nights too!). The drawback to this Trolley stop: If your room faces that side of the hotel (Franklin St and Old Water St.) you will hear the trolley all night until service stops.
The hotel restaurant, Trolley's American Cafe, is decent. Fair prices and restaurants.com has some great offers with this place. I had a $25 off a $35 check. Good food and portions. Complementary cooked-to-order breakfast was good as is Embassy Suites trade mark. Starbucks in the lobby which is a nice plus! Coffee in the room is horrible.
Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Nice bedding. Living room area clean and comfortable. I am a smoker and was happy to find smoking rooms offered. The rooms smelled mostly fresh. Windows do not open, so that always sucks when you're a smoker. I always take my candles and Frebreeze anyhow.
Pretty disappointed that they cahrge for in-room WiFi and $20 parking fee. If you are attending an event, this price is worth it. But if just having a night out or a business related trip, this is steep.
