The hotel is in a nice location. Breakfast included an omelet station, oatmeal, grits, and other hot items. Fitness center was adequate and included free weights and cardio equipment. The staff is very accommodating. We needed something notarized and Steve Amatrading was kind enough to help us out!

The complementary breakfast is wonderful. The staff there always seems willing to help. If you have a large group the have a shuttle services for within 5 miles. The location is quick from the interstate and if you have a conference at USF it is the perfect location.

If you have business at USF or the VA in Tampa or want to visit Busch Gardens, this is the perfect location! The property offers all suite accommodations, free full breakfast with custom cooked eggs, and a happy hour that is the best bargain around. I stay her for business 5-7 times a year and always have a warm welcome by the staff. As a Hilton Honors member you are treated with special attention. The property is getting some upgrades and the rooms are being done slowly, which will really add to the overall experience. Another plus is that the Yuengling Brewery is just down the street so you can get a tour and free samples! With the large rooms, breakfast, and happy hour, you cant ask for a better deal!

Our short stay at the Embassy was very enjoyable. The staff was very accomodating from housecleaning to the manager. Excellent location, off the busy highway tucked away on a quit winding road. To be perfectly honest the best part was dinner at the Mangroves Grille, I had the French Dip Sandwich like no other I have ever had! We just live 75 minutes South of the Embassy Suites and are planning a trip to Tampa just to have the French Dip sandwich with my daughter and son-in-law. That is how great is was!

Room Tip: Room overlooking Busch Gardens on the upper floors were fun, you could watch the roller coasters.

My company, Job News, uses Embassy Suites at USF to host our job fair events. The service we received from them was great and all our needs were taken care of promptly and with a smile on their faces! Thanks to Sara Meadows, Exec. Meeting Manager, for all your help! We are coming back on Dec. 4th for our next job fair!
