Although we stayed only one night at the Embassy Suites in Tampa (prior to our Caribbean cruise) I can say that we enjoyed our brief stay. This is a nice hotel with clean modern rooms and conveniently located about a 5-minute ride to the Carnival Cruise Port. As many of the guest were staying there prior to cruising, they had a shuttle bus from "Blue One" shuttle company in the garage. While this was NOT a free service (I think we paid $20 for three of us for transport to the port) it was very convenient.
The managers cocktail party was nice as was the free breakfast buffet. The trolley, which we rode to Ybor City for dinner, was located just outside the front door and costs $5 per person/day for unlimited rides. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.
