Reviewed 16 December 2017

It is perfectly located to USF, The Sundome, Busch gardens etc. High quality staff, nice complimentary evening reception and wonderful breakfast. Very clean and excellent friendly staff. We stayed here last for our son's graduation from USF and it was a wonderful stay.

Room smelled heavly of mold. Toilet was dirty, Bathtub was dirty. My wife and kids were up sniffling and coughing due to the mold that was coming from the bathroom, had to open the window and close the bathroom door to finally get some rest. Also I booked a premium suite and there were no premuim goodies. had to ask for the goodies and when they brought them an hour later they only brought me half of what i was given at the embassy suites premiem in orlando by the airport. sad really. my first horrible expierence with an embassy suite. hope it never happens again. feel free to call me at 305-240-7013. the room btw was 821. my name is alain otero

This property serves the USF campus families - it is actually on campus. Embassy suites was a gem in its hay day and still could be today with the proper reinvestment and application of Hilton standards. This property is extremely dated, very old worn finishes, and poorly maintained. It is simply not clean. The bathrooms are not acceptable - from core cleanliness to fixtures ripe with pink bacterial growth.
It is a unusually cold weekend for Tampa and we soon realized that the air unit does not have a heat option. We just spent a very cold and uncomfortable night. Choose something else - USF parent.

I just wanted to say this was our first stay at this hotel but I can say we will be staying here again. Clarissa that checked us in was so nice and personable. Mary the waitress so friendly and great. Musa the gentleman that made our food was fabulous the cheesesteak was amazing. The managers reception everyday was a great bonus. The morning free breakfast was also amazing and the staff so friendly.
