“Nice hotel”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Embassy Suites near Busch Gardens. It is close to work and the staff is very accommodating.

The breakfast has a variety or different foods and the happy hour is a certainly a plus.

I had lunch today at the Mangroves Restaurant inside the hotel and they have a new menu and the variety of dishes is great! I love the addition of the Cuban dishes! Today I had the Grilled Cod and it was moist and delicious as was the roasted asparagus! I was able to speak with Jennifer Cancho, who I have worked with on several past events about some future events. She is always pleasant and informative! Jennifer and the Embassy know how to treat groups right! The property is very well maintained inside and out, the staff is friendly and helpful.

1 out 10 I rate the hotel at a 8. The banquet management staff Joyce Turner, Mary Patterson, and Steve were very good. The hotel hostess at the grille restaurant was very pleasant and stepped in to help. She also remembered you day after day. The rooms were always clean and the beds were great sleeping. The shower was good each day. Our group has had small conventions at the location before and things have gone well. The Friday night banquet food and no presentations. There was a piece of mea, with a scoop of mashed potatoes, and green beans that were hard. No gravy or sauce for the potatoes. Saturday night was presented much better. The chocolate cake was great. Most of our ladies would return to the hotel again.

The hotel was beautiful and had everything we wanted. Beautiful rooms, great pool and hot tub, gym, FREE BREAKFAST, and drinks in the evening, but most importantly WONDERFUL SERVICE. The staff here has been so friendly from the time I made my reservations everything was so easy. Isela made our stay. We stayed for my dad's birthday and she went out of her way to help us out multiple times. She needs a raise for her customer service along. You go girl!!!! This hotel is a must stay just because they have her.

My family and I recently stayed at the Embassy Suites Tampa - USF property and had a wonderful experience. Not only were the rooms spacious and well kept, but the employees were amazing. In particular we had the pleasure of meeting the Restaurant Manager, Leslie Ciccarello, who made us feel right at home. She took the time to mingle with us and ask about our stay and our vacation. She was wonderful with our kids and my family is already asking when we get to go back and visit her! I highly recommend this hotel!

We recently brought our college basketball team up there to play at USF and stayed at the Embassy Suites. Jennifer Cancho and her staff did a fantastic job catering to our needs and providing us with a great hotel stay. The breakfast was great and the hotel was in perfect condition. Even though we had a large group, everything was taken care of very well. Would definitely recommend to any group looking for great service.
