If you are going to the Amalie Arena for any type of event, you can walk from the Embassy.They do charge for their valet parking, but it's about the same price as if you were parking at the Amalie. And oh, so sweet, to be looking at those red taillights stuck in traffic as you are winding down in a...

While driving to the hotel, knowing that roads would be closed because of Gasparilla weekend, we decided to call and ask which would be the best route to avoid the traffic congestion.

Upon arrival, I was expecting great service and received it from the front desk staff. We then went to our room on the 12th floor where we were somewhat disappointed. We could easily hear people talking in the lobby. You can also hear the trolley whistle outside when it would arrive to the stop. On a good note, the trolley...

The Embassy Suites next to the convention center is the perfect location from which to explore Tampa. It is an easy walk to the water front for walking and exploring. Also, the trolley is just in front of the hotel which can take you to Ybor City

Room was great - very large. I was traveling alone for work, it was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities I needed. I was up on the 19th floor. All this was excellent... Room service was the most salty food ever. The vegetables had pine nuts and strawberries on the top??! Just strange... The lift stopped 8 floors...

Staying in the hotel with a group prior to a cruise the next day and this hotel has complimentary drinks and snacks nightly. Unheard of in this day and age and they were not watered down. It was nice way to mingle with our new cruise mates. Well done

A decent enough place for a stop over in a business trip. Good size suites reasonably priced, with a free breakfast and happy hour when beer was actually free. Good location for downtown and friendly service with helpful staff. Would certainly stay again as good value for money.
