“NecronomiCon 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

NecronomiCon 2013 The convention was awesome! The Stone Hill Science Fiction Fan Association did an excellent job as always. The Hotel and staff seemed to be up to the task of hosting this size of a convention and did a very good job.

I have been dealing with Joyce Turner for the last 5 years and have had a wonderful
experience with this Embassy Suites. The warmth that is shown by the staff makes
you feel like you are in your own home. It is definitely a homey experience. It almost
makes you feel like not going home. Breakfast every morning better than at home.
Wonderful buffet at lunch. Happy HOur for the guests. What is better than this.
I represent the Disabled American Veterans and when our people are in the area.
This is the place to stay.

The AC had massive amounts of MOLD on it, and it made us all very sick. The Cleaning lady (who could not speak a word of Engrish), stole stuff from our room, we cought her red handed, and the staff treated us like crap because we reported it. The excuse was they thought we were checked out. We were not, we were just taking a load down to the car.

A nice, clean hotel that's minutes away from Busch Gardens, the Museum of Science and Industry, and USF campus. I was there for a science fiction convention and driving to the area, I was very impressed by the local attractions in the area. The initial impression of the hotel was airy and open. During the trip, the staff juggled several different events and, in my opinion; were extremely professional in dealing with both the group I was with as well as a wedding in the atrium. The complementary breakfast and reception were nice touches that were really appreciated. The quality of the room was miles ahead of other hotels we've been to. The amenities were top notch. I feel it was a good value for my weekend stay.

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!
