Pros: close to Busch Gardens big rooms, ok price. Free breakfast. Cons: pay for parking(I didn't though), TVs do not work- some channels not at all, most fuzzy, bathroom needs some love- moldy shower, not completely clean, shower rod looks like it might fall out. I killed a pretty good sized spider and a lot of black ants in the...

I chose to return to this location based on an excellent prior stay there. It was my brothers birthday so I suggested that we stay at this location due to the excellent managers reception buffet and happy hour entertainment, as well as the full breakfast. I told him that we would not have to leave the location because they had...

The very good rating comes from the wonderful breakfast buffets that they include with your lodging. This hotel's breakfast was really good. The hotel's open area is beautiful and full of wonder plants and flowers. The hotel is due for a major upgrade but it is still very nice....just a little run down in some areas. I would recommend this...

First time I've ever had an issue staying at an embassy suites hotel:-(. switched us twice, room smelled of cigarettes. Next room had an inoperative TV and had to switch again but switches were to rooms that didn't have a King. No offer of help with our bags etc...very dissapointing.

This hotel is not up to the Embassy Suites standards. The floors in the breakfast area were sticky almost all week. The pool was not cleaned till later in the week. Maim TV channels that carried Dancing with the Stars & the Voice were not working. The front desk was not helpful.

Family spring break trip to Busch Gardens Tampa and spent 3 nights. Breakfast was awesome and fast. So we did not have to spend a lot of time. Busch Gardens straight shot out the parking lot and was inside within 10 minutes. Very clean and staff was great. Recommend staying here.

I chose this hotel because it was only 1 mile from the Moffitt Cancer Center, where I was scheduled to have an operation. As you can imagine, my stress level was extremely high. Since the Embassy Suites advertised a hotel shuttle to Moffitt, I called the hotel prior to my arrival in order to request to Moffitt at 5:00am. The...

Very big rooms and large comfortable beds along with a location close to the parks are the best parts of this hotel. I never tried the evening reception so unable to comment. But our timing for breakfast was a bad one at 9am, it was madness with many basic items unavailable. No hot food other than sausage and eggs and...

Our suite had some maintenance issues that could have easily been fixed before our arrival. One of the elevators was broken during the entire stay which made it challenging with all the other groups in-house. The Internet was not reliable and probably needs additional access points throughout the building. Gabriel in the restaurant was very hospitable and made a positive...

We are Hilton Honors members and usually love to stay at Embassy Suites. This hotel however needs some updating. Bathroom shower rod falling out of the wall, worn bedding and decor. 2 of the 3 elevators were broken. Floor of eating area for breakfast very sticky and gross. Employees very nice and accommodating though. We are staying here to be...
