The hotel was right across from the Convention Center & with the cross over bridge directly from hotel to CC, It was a breeze getting there. The staff could not have been any more professional & accommodating. The room was great, housekeeping are so friendly. The Happy Hour was great and the breakfast is fabulous at this location. Fresh made...

Great hotel, breakfast, and happy hour. Wish the snacks were more than chips and dip. Great location near downtown and the trolley. Great views of the bay from the upper levels. Really enjoyed the hotel as a whole.

I was planning a short weekend get away since we only live less than 25 miles away and I found this nice hotel that looked like it was close to everything downtown and it was reasonably priced. When I called the staff never asked me if I was attending the Anime convention, especially since I found out later they were...

For the most part, our stay was overall very good. The AC however was unable to cool the room down - but that could be that we were on the 14th floor in the middle of July. Be sure to verify the breakfast times - the book in the room says it's open until 10:30 M-F, but in actuality, it...

I couldn't dock the hotel for things that can be blamed on the sheer amount of people here for metrocon at the convention center. People watching in itself has been quite entertaining. The hotel is very clean, and surprising quiet on the upper levels. The pool wasn't too busy but is an odd shape. Skinny and long. Not the best...

We chose this hotel because of the location...on the bay and close to Bush Gardens and other attractions. Our room was not ready upon check in and we had to wait about an hour. Once in, the room was visually clean, but it did not feel clean. I felt as if it needed to be disinfected but in their haste...

The service was very good and the amenities were ok. The food on the premises was very good and the location was perfect. It is close to many different venues and modes of transportation if you prefer not to drive.

My experience at the Downtown Convention Center Embassy Suites was a curious mixture of the spectacular (front desk service, breakfast buffet) to the mediocre (happy hour buffet, valets) to the unresponsive (lost and found). 1. The front desk staff: five stars! I dealt with several different people, including Viva, on six or seven occasions. Each time, they were clearly and...

Stayed 7 nights during a convention. Hotel staff are very courteous, and helpful. Room was a bit dated as to pillows, and bedding. But overall, comfortable.Air condition could be better. The thermostat did not register correctly. Breakfast food was served as ordered, and flavor was good. Location to the Convention Center is excellent. Elevator service is slower than expected.

As a Hilton Diamond level member hotels are part of my life. The room was quiet, clean and well appointed. Perfect location for the convention center and river walk. Breakfast was marginal and the elevators were an absolute nightmare. Even though there are four, management appeared to determine only two were needed. The Marriott is right across the street and...
