This Embassy Suites is a regular stop for us after attending Bucs games to save the long drive home across the state. The rooms are large and well appointed for a fair price and the breakfast is above and beyond most hotel breakfasts at any chain. The location is convenient and the staff is friendly. However, on our last visit...

I typically like Embassy Suites but this one did not hold up to my expectations. Noisy pipes, disappointing happy hour, missing breakfast items, expensive parking are just a few. Overall the room was nice. Internet access very slow at times.

Tampa is truly a beautiful city and the Embassy Suites is in a great location to enjoy the city. There is some do and see Tampa, Florida. The breakfast at the hotel could be a little longer in the mornings and they could put some body wash in the rooms.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night as we were going to a concert at the Amalie Arena - the location could not be better, equally perfect for access to the Convention Center. We hadn't stayed at an Embassy Suites before and we chose it instead of the Marriott across the street because of the free cooked breakfast, which...

Great location. Do not feel like you are in downtown at all! Right next door to Amalie arena and Riverwalk. Short easy drive to airport and Raymond James stadium. Rooms are clean. Awesome free breakfast and nightly happy hour which was a nice perk. Starbucks on site. On site small bar/restaurant. Friendly staff. Minor issue with room key and was...

If you're attending an event at the adjacent convention center, you can hardly do better than staying across the street. But otherwise, not much to recommend. Kind of a tired property: bland features, food and amenities. Big draw is the free happy hour and free breakfast. Meh.

Very worn out rooms and cleanliness is not desirable. A/C not cold, toilet running and sprayed out water. Dirty grout and corners along will chipped up doors and cabinets. The chrome fixtures were also rusted and chipped. Did not expect this from a Hilton brand hotel.

Stayed here Pre-Cruise. Great Stay would do it again, very close to things to do. Would suggest Hotel offer shuttle to cruise port since it's not that far away. Rooms were beautiful (corner suites were huge great for a family with little ones)

We had a good stay. Check in was quick and easy and even though we were early our room was ready. Our suite was nice, large and clean. It had everything we required for a 2 night stay. The breakfast was great, lots of choice and although there was wasn't any non-dairy milk on display it was provided when I...
