My family and I enjoyed our stay at Embassy suites. Everyone was very polite and helpful in every way possible. The only issue that I had would be if you are staying with a rather large family allow the light sleepers to sleep in the room and heavy sleepers to sleep in pull out couch. Well thats if you even have to use living room to sleep in. Reason being the hallways are rather loud and echoey due to the way the hotel is built and if you are trying to go to bed early to go to a park it will keep you up pretty late. Other than that place was perfect pool was decent size nothing fancy and gym was ok.

Stayed here for a conference on the USF campus. The Embassy Suites brand offers a full suite with a sink, refrigerator, coffee making capabilities and 2 rooms--one with a King and one with a sleeper sofa and a large, convenient en suite bathroom. The staff at this hotel, especially the shuttle drivers which worked overtime for us were excellent. The reason for the 3* rating is the inconsistent housekeeping and replenishing of washcloths and tea. The shuttle will take you to Busch Gardens or the VA or anywhere else for free if it's in a 3 mile radius. Don't forget to tip the drivers please.

Room Tip: Higher floors (7 and 8) allow closer access to the atrium style lighting because all the sleeper sofa/living rooms face the atrium (as well as having windows in the bedroom that face the outside).

I am a frequent guest at Embassy Suites Tampa USF. The manager at this facility, Lee, has always been very helpful and takes of the employees at my company who also frequent this hotel. It is in a great location near Busch Gardens, USF and Veterans Hospital with reasonable freeway access to the beaches. Barbara at the front desk and Dave are also very helpful and call me by name and go out of their way to accommodate my requests.
