First, the Embassy Suites are beautiful and located in the perfect area. I enjoyed my stay on March 31, 2016, from the time I pull up to the gentlemen for valet parking, the front desk to room service, everyone and everything was great. I will return and enjoy some R & R time.

The hotel is beautiful and the rooms very spacious. Fridge & micro in the room made it convenient. Staff was helpful. It's an easy walk to the convention center! Thank you for making my conference experience even better!

Average value for the money. Rooms are clean, good beds but the breakfast area not kept clean. Valet parking very expensive. Evening reception snacks OK quality/variety. Breakfast variety and quality awesome!

Dear nitinp381, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We do appreciate your valuable feedback and will be passing your comments and concerns onto our food and beverage manager. You are correct, being in a downtown city environment does make parking costs at a premium. Please do reach out to me personally before making your next reservation...

This was not my favorite Embassy Suites by far, and by the conversations I heard around me in elevators, in the line for the front desk, in the line for the valet - I am not alone in my thoughts. The hotel itself is nice, and you can not beat the location. The rooms are a little aged at this...

The room is very large, cocktails & breakfast are very good & free:) Location to convention center & Cruise Ship area and river walk are perfect. I have stayed there in the pat and will stay again in the future. Oh, & they are right next to a lot of fun things to do on the water!!

Some desk staff don't get the hospitality thing. Like all guests are one time convention visitors, they will never see again. We will be back to Tampa, but will not stay here again. As a rule, I like the Embassy Suites format. But not this locatin.

Oh boy, where to start with this hotel? They are connected to the Tampa Convention Center, so they have a captive audience, and they know it and their service reflects it. I'll just stick to the facts: We happened to be there during a convention, and so the hotel was unbelievably packed. We needed to allocate 10-15 minutes of lead...

The elevators were an average 15 minute wait. My first initial arrival was 20 mins in valet to check in . They do not offer self park but valet parking. ( their is a fee) It was extremely limited in valet space so you will be waiting along time. No bell hops or carts to load my luggage and infant...

While the room was clean and tidy, my family and I are very upset at the lack of details for comfort in this hotel. When I made the reservation I specifically requested a crib for our new born baby.
