Stayed here for a night after visiting Busch Gardens. Great location, and the lobby is nice, but the room was worn and dated. Breakfast was as expected and service was great. Take advantage of shuttle for Busch Gardens.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 December 2016 via mobile

We have stayed here a number of times over the years and just can't stop coming back. The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast is great. Our favourite thing is the managers reception though, the staff are wonderful and friendly! Love it and can't wait to go back.

The hotel was a mile from Busch Gardens where we went the next day. Free shuttle service saved us $20.00 in parking at the amusement park. Overall the hotel was convenient to there and also Ybor City. Accommodations were excellent. Staff very friendly. Would recommend this.

we have stayed there several times. the hotel could probably use minor upgrading. the rooms are typical Embassy Suites. the carpets look a bit worn. our room had no mechanism in the bathroom door and we had to have the safe opened as it was locked and left by the previous occupants. the hallway carpets could use some replacement also....

My wife and I stayed on the premium floor, the quality of the room was not were it should have been for the price, if reminded me of another hotel not far away that only cost $60 nightly. Very out dated.

My wife and I had business in Tampa and stayed here for one night in January. The location was more important to us than astetics or style. It fit the bill. Checkin was quick and the staff was friendly. My guess is that the hotel was built about thirty years ago. It shows its age, but seems to be clean...

Over all ecperience is great except the receptionis upon check in gave me a sour mouth on our stay with this hotel. Used the check in online, chose our room location and upon getting our keys our room was changed without letting us know why until I asked.

We were there for the College football National Championship game. Location was close enough and the Hilton Embassy suites brand was attractive. Enjoyed the complementary breakfast and the evening happy hour. The new app to allow you to choose a room and the electronically open the doors was great
