Nice hotel on a perfect spot close and next to the Tampa Confention center. Easy connection to and from the airport. Friendly and assisting staff. Rooms are huge with two double beds and a small kitchenette next to the livingroom. Nice weather and a pool to enjoy it. Internet is fast and furious. I must return soon....

Clean hotel with friendly staff. Stayed 1 night with my husband to watch a hockey game. Deliberated between Embassy & Marriott across the street for same price. Both hotels are a very close walk to the arena. Chose Embassy for the reward points because I'm a Hilton Honors member. Tried to relax at the pool after checking in before the...

Booked the hotel due to the proximity to the convention center. Was pleasantly surpised by the room layout and updated decor of the hotel. Staff was friendly and efficient and the short walk to the convention hall was extremely convenient!

Stayed here in March 2016. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The pool area is really nice and the pool is heated. You can order food from Trolley's café and take it to the pool. The breakfast and social hour are very good, too. There is a trolley right out front that will take you to...

We stayed here in April 2016 before our transatlantic cruise to Barcelona. The hotel also had a Budget rent-a-car office, which is what we used to drive to Tampa. The valet park personnel took the car and parked it for us at Budget's part of the parking garage. I did go to Budget's office the next morning to ensure they...

The hotel itself is in a great location with the trolley stop outside, close access to the Riverwalk and close to the TB Lightening Arena. Breakfast, Manager's reception, pool and room itself was great. We had service issues with the door - our keys would work once and then not work the next time. This happened over six times on...

Hotel was clean, rooms are big, however air conditioner didn't cool the room. Maintenance brought us a fan to use. If the air conditioner worked I would of given this place a 5 star. I did have to pay an additional 25 dollars to check in early and parking is 24 dollars a day.

This is more like a small apartment than a hotel. Plenty of space to relax and the full breakfast with omelet bar was amazing! I'd recommend this for both business and pleasure travel.

So close to the arena, it was the obvious choice in the area. Room was comfortable and clean. We were somewhat disappointed in the evening reception's snack offerings (basically tortilla chips and salsa-- we've been impressed at other Embassy Suites that have put out veggies/dip, cheese trays, etc.) However, the complimentary beverages compensated for it, with many selections including blended...
