“Great Value, Good Location, Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

I think I'm a pretty discerning traveler and the bad reviews of this Embassy Suites are undeserved. It has been remodeled and you can tell that ...but not in a bad way. Rooms are very big and clean. It doesn't have an atrium...that doesn't bother me! It's across the street from Westshore Mall and several good restaurants are within walking distance.

We took the airport shuttle, which was prompt and the driver very friendly and helpful. When we arrived at the hotel the front desk clerk welcomed us at the van and walked us to the front desk!. The manager's reception was excellent...well staffed and food re-stocked continuosly. I didn't do the breakfast buffet but my wife was pleased with her meal and service.

Overall an excellent stay . . comfortable rooms, and a very professional and courteous staff!

The lobby is avant but hotel is mostly ok. For business it is adequate although lunch buffet was not great option during my conference. Breakfast was better of the two. Near highway but in mixed residential area. I would stay again only if I got a great deal.

Stayed one night at the hotel prior to departing on a cruise. The hotel provided courtesy pickup at the airport, usually a nice way to save a few bucks. Upon arriving at the embassy suites, I realized immediately that this is not the typical embassy suites with the nice atrium area. Our room was OK, not as large as I am accustomed to at Embassy Suites. The room was not dirty, but definitely could have used a thorough cleaning and possibly some mold remediation. We did not attended the Manger's reception. The breakfast was the biggest disappointment. If you stay at Embassy suites for the great breakfast they are known for, don't stay here. Eating area was a mess, buffet food was horrible, and even the omelets from the omelet station tasted like some odd egg substitute that was past its time. The front desk staff was friendly and probably only the good thing I can say about this stay. Needles to say, will not be staying at this particular Embassy Suites again.

Dear Valuable Guest,

Thanks for the feedback and I’m terrible sorry about the situation during breakfast. No excuses from us. I will be sure to pass along your comments to the food & beverage staff.

Good to hear the front desk was friendly.

We are about to complete our renovation which will include all of our guest rooms. Please be sure to come back and visit us again.

Regards,

This is a great hotel with comforable beds that I enjoyed! All the staff was very friendly and helpful in making sure that we were taken care of. I really enjoyed how the took extra time to make sure we were ok since we were traveling with 2 children under 5 years and my little sister hurt her knee and needed special assistance. The staff even let us borrow a wheel chair which made a huge difference! The rooms were a good size for a family of four and were very clean.

Family trip 4th of July Weekend. Booked same day on internet and got a great deal. Parking cost extra. 3rd time staying here selected a corner room and didn't know what to expect. It was smaller than the usual rooms and i will not book a corner room again, it was studio like. Things have changed since last visit.They were watching that Buffet Line like hawks, and had a lady posted to take tickets. The front desk guy gave me only 1 ticket for breakfast and didn't ask how many in party. We had to pay for my hubby's breakfast ticket $10. The breakfast omelet cook was very good and pleasant. Refreshments were complimentary and we had a nice time on the deck. Good job customer service.

Our family stayed here during a college graduation weekend. The lobby area is very nice and had lemon water available every time we walked through. The rooms are spacious and clean. The front desk was more than helpful. The only downside was the parking garage charge.

We stayed there when visiting Tampa for a soccer game, so we chose this hotel because of its proximity to the stadium and my previous good experience with this chain.And again I enjoyed the stay! The hotel is very clean, with a very modern lobby, friendly staff and close to the mall and restaurants( walking distance) If you travel with family the two bedroom suite is perfect.The only disappointment I had was when I found out that the balcony door was sealed for safety reasons but the staff was very gracious about explaining the reason and apologizing for the inconvenience.
