“Have to go to Tampa? Stay here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

On the road again!
Good place to stay if you have to stay in Tampa - I saw the hotel down the road where my co-workers stayed... stay here.
Don't plan on room service if you get in late - it's not really available as late as the menu says it is. The bar closes early, too, and it's a bit hidden, so ask if you need either.
Other than that, great. Bed is very comfortable, room has tons of space, and is very quiet, even near the elevators. Great view if you're on a high floor, and there's a mall and a Walgreens nearby if you've forgotten something.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, and you are in the South, so be sure to indicate if non-smoking is important.

I stayed at the Embassy Suites Tampa Westshore with my family over the 2012 New Year’s week. When I arrived I could see that there was a lot of noise and a dust cloud due to construction work in the lobby. During my 5 night stay I found that the room was dirty, the House Keeping Staff was rude, and the staff was not knowledgeable and seemed quite unwilling to help.
As a Hilton Honors member, I have stayed at the Embassy Suites on many occasions and have never had such a distasteful experience.

Suprised by the lack of the trademark atrium area, breakfast was served in a large room crowded beyond belief. More like what you expect from say Comfort Inn on a busy morning.
The room was fine and the rest of the stay was fine.

Dear Pageezer,

Thank you for posting a review of your stay on the Tripadvisor site. We appreciate all feedback as it allows us to know our strengths and areas that we may need to work on.

As you can imagine, the holiday week-ends were very busy for hotels in the area. I apologize if the flow of the breakfast area ran slower than one would hope. Everyone likes to linger over their cooked-to-order omelets!

Please contact me directly if you will be coming to the area in the future so that I may personally take care of your reservations and ensure that you have a fabulous stay!

With Regards,

Lori Lindstrom

The lobby is being remodeled (NOT really an inconvenience) but other than that the hotel, rooms and staff were excellent. Managers reception (happy hour) was fantastic and breakfast was delicious. The shuttle is great to get to local restaurants or shopping! I will definately stay there again and recommend it to friends and family.

We stayed here 20-24 December with 4 adults and 3 children aged 4, 2 and 9 months. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite (1 king bed in one room and 2 queens in the other, each bedroom with its own bathroom, one living area with sofa bed and a full kitchen). Plenty of space for our group of 7!

The front desk staff, Troy and Melvin, were absolutely amazing. Immediately upon arrival two cribs were placed in our room, I called and asked for a highchair which arrived within 10 minutes, requests for extra towels/blankets were filled within 10 minutes each time. The breakfast was great and the staff made my 2 boys feel like kings!! The managers reception had some of the freshest celery and peppers we've tasted in Florida and the spread was enough to count as dinner for all 3 of my little ones. We were able to eat in the outside dinning area for both breakfast and during the managers reception which we hoped allowed people looking for a quiter inside dinning experience not to be bothered by our brood. The pool was heated and my son and I enjoyed swimming- which was a surprise for us in December! They have laundry facilities which helped us keep our packing to a minimum (detergent is 1.25 a box, washer is 1.50 a load and dryer was 1.75, dryer sheets were 1.25 for two sheets). We stayed on hilton points and the value was great-- 2 bedroom suite for 60,000 points a night!

We did get to sneak in two date nights without the kids-- highly recommend the happy hour at Sidebernz. Half priced drinks and appetizers at the bar. We did the tasting menu for dinner and it was nice- not really our style, but worth a try. We'd head back for the great wine/beer and happy hour deals. Our other date night was Ruth Chris which was on par with the chains standard.

Feel free to ask questions- we really enjoyed this hotel and have already re-booked for our return visit to Tampa in March!
