“Successful Meeting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I recently held a meeting at the Embassy Suites USF and was very satisfied with the meeting space and the service I received. Sara was my event manager and she was so friendly, professional, and very easy to work with in preparation for my meeting. Steve and the banquet staff were always accessible and quick to fulfill any request onsite. The lunch was excellent as well, even though we chose the most inexpensive option due to our limited budget. Complimentary parking and breakfast was a major plus for our attendees as well!

This is an awesome hotel with amazing staff, especially Maria and Leslie. The sales folks are excellent led by Joyce Turner. It really is like going home; staff are cordial, friendly, and very accommodating. I make every effort to conduct my business with this hotel

Room Tip: Just ask - they'll do their best to take care of you.

My company recently held a cocktail reception in the waterfall area of the hotel. The atmosphere was great and everyone had an awesome time! Sara Meadows, the executive meeting manager at Embassy Suites USF, did an excellent job organizing the event and was around to make sure everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend this hotel for future events!!

We had a business event at the hotel, and the guests were all very pleased with the layout of the banquet rooms, the food, and the staff. The management is accomodating and professional, yet down-to-Earth at the same time, which makes for a pleasant business experience.

I'd like to share my extreme kudos for Steve Amatrading for his service while at a recent event hosted at the Embassy Suites in Tampa. He was our banquet captain and went above and beyond to ensure our event was a success! He's an asset to the overall team, thanks so much, Steve!!!

I recently hosted a post conference reception and the Embassy Suites made it very easy.Sara Meadows was very responsive and flexible. We asked for some changes to the menu and she worked with me so I remained on budget. The day of the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely recommend the Embassy Suites for your events.
