This is more like a motel than a hotel. There was a stain in granite in our suite that looked like blood or nail polish. The towels were small and over bleached. The pool was tiny and closed half the time for weddings. The bathroom was out dated and house keeping was erratic. They were very stingy with shampoo, soap...

Very nice hotel. Rooms are very nice. Breakfast was very good, large variety of items to eat. WiFi is pretty disappointing for a hotel this large. Equipment in the fitness room is fairly outdated, different things not working on some of them.

This hotel is very clean with a great staff. It is located right off the Riverwalk with many things to do in the area along with many restaurants within walking distance. Amenities include free full breakfast and a free happy hour in the evenings.

This was a great location to catch the cruise from we actually walked to port area took 10 minutes if you have easy rolling suitcases - no issue at all. The riverwalk was great and restaurant at hotel was good.

We stayed here for an Allstate Music event and had a good stay. Though it was severely crowded, the hotel managed to accommodate everyone very well. The location was great fro all downtown venues such as the convention center. It was a great stay for my family.

Tampa hosted Visit FL's FL Huddle in January and, of course, I booked the Embassy Suites because of my Hilton loyalty. Unfortunately it rained for almost all of the conference and the rain POURED into the Embassy Suites. I had water pouring into my shower through the light in the ceiling, which couldn't have been safe, but there was certainly...

I picked the hotel for the location (access bridge directly to Florida Convention Center) but got so many more benefits by staying here. Plenty of space to study, Starbucks off the lobby, complimentary wine/beer/snacks each evening, amazing breakfast buffet and a most wonderful hotel staff. You won't be disappointed.

The hotel room was not up to the cleanliness par. I had to have my room switched due to dirty sheets on the bed and there were crumbs left in the refrigerator.
