The hotel is conveniently located near Busch Gardens. The room size is ideal for a family and the ease of breakfast and bonus of the evening reception round out the day at the park. The hotel has shuttle services which includes a ride to the park- this was a major benefit. Our whole family would definitely recommend this hotel and...

Great location near Busch Gardens, near Top Golf, comfortable rooms, nice fitness equipment, good breakfast would recommend staying here, it was too cold for the pool but the lobby area and bar and restaurant were nice.

Did not have to drive and park at the parks. The restaurant staff went above and beyond expectations. The hotel staff was very courteous and handled all the needs I and my family had. I strongly recommend this hotel.

This Embassy Suites worked out just fine for us. The room was fine. We skipped the breakfast-to-order because the line was so long. Staff was very friendly at both check-in and check-out. If we are in the area, we will gladly stay here again. As with almost all ES properties we've stayed in, I wish the walls were not so...

It was our understanding that the hotel was only 43% booked for the Christmas Weekend. I am not sure why, but the breakfast was terrible. It took over 20 minutes to replace clean utensils, the fruit was never refilled and the food was slow to be refilled. I acknowledge I went at the busiest time, but utensils should not be...

This hotel offers several amenities to meet the need of most guests' interests. I found the entire hotel staff were very customer-oriented. This is a very family oriented hotel but also conducive for a couple's retreat or business. The location is safe and convenient for travel around the Tampa area.

We stayed here as part of a Busch Gardens package (room and tickets). The hotel was great - clean and quiet and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was great, especially the made to order eggs (omelet). The pre-made items were good as well. The breakfast staff was very friendly and very efficient.

My family and I visited for one night while in Tampa to go to Busch Gardens. We had a great experience at this hotel. The room was nice and clean, the breakfast was delicious, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The shuttle to the park was so convenient. We will definitely be coming back!
