Stayed in Tampa for 2 nights at this Embassy Suites which is actually located on the campus of USF (University of South Florida).

The location is close to the hospital. It is clean and the staff is welcoming. Would recommend if you or a family member is having treatments there. Convenient location and easy access from the freeway. Complementary Breakfast and evening social hour is a plus. There is also a restaurant & bar on site which does a good job as well.

It was a dark and stormy night when we recently arrived at the hotel. The staff was welcoming and efficient and changed our room immediately because of a chirping fire alarm. Our only complaint with the hotel was that the a/c only had two modes-freezing or off. We really enjoyed the complementary Happy Hour from 5:30p.m until 7:00p.m. Because the...

I usually love Embassy Suites, but this one is the worst I ever stayed in. The thermastat in the meeting rooms wouldn't reach a temperature over 64 degrees. When we complained the hotel gave us hot chocolate, but could not fix the air conditioning problem. We all got sick from the conditions. The hotel is outdated, the omelets were not...

This hotel is not up to an average standard of cleanliness for business travel. The carpet, floors, remotes, and countertops are sticky and appear unkept to the touch. Rooms are actually all adjoining, so smells and sounds carry between rooms. My "neighbor" had a baby and smoked marijuana all hours of the day, so I heard the baby all night...
