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 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.
