Gloria C. was a delight, full of energy and pleasantries---she is like the Energizer Bunny busing tables, and eager to find a seat for you and bring your favorite morning beverage during the busy breakfast buffet! Thank you Gloria!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 January 2017

Originally booked for the free shuttle to Busch Gardens and we were pleased with our previous stay at an Embassy Suite Hotel. The furnishings could use some updating but overall it was neat and clean. This is a smaller facility and seems to cater to smaller events and meetings. The staff makes this a wonderful place to stay. I really...

We traveled with Danish guests (mother, father, 5 and 3 year olds and a 7 month old) to visit Busch Gardens. This hotel was perfect. The staff was fantastic. Clarissa went above and beyond to assist us. The shuttle to the park was great. The restaurant was kid-friendly.

This hotel was clean and staff was friendly. I enjoyed my stay, everything you need is in this hotel. However, if you are visiting Tampa because you are on vacation and going to Bush Gardens. This is the place to stay, they have plenty of parking for their guest.

From the front desk to the in suite dining to the transport service all staff were accommodating. I would stay there again and recommend to anyone going to the area. It seemed to be family friendly. The staff was caring and took good care of me while my husband was at Moffitt Cancer Center.

We were trying to find a hotel with a shuttle to Busch Gardens. The shuttle needed to be handicapped accessible. This hotel was the only one that said they had just that. I'm glad they did. We really enjoyed our time at this hotel. The room was huge. Nice living room area and the beds were very soft. The breakfast...

The location is wonderful ... especially convenient to USF and Busch Gardens. The breakfast buffet was good, the happy hour was great, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was adequate, but really needs updating. I hate bathfitter tubs (makes me feel like I'm on a boat) and the toilet ran almost constantly. We let them know when...

I recently planned a one day visit to Busch Gardens which would involve a two night stay in the Tampa area. Originally I was contemplating staying on the beach in Clearwater or St. Pete's Beach, but decided against it in the end because of the travel time from the beach to Busch Gardens. Traffic on the 275 can be horrible...

Wanted a nice hotel close to Busch Gardens and not a tired old hotel that seem to still exist in that area. This was about a mile form the parking of the park. Hotel had large atrium, where a wedding had just taken place. Room was standard two queen beds but was clean. Pool area is nice and secluded from...

A huge embarrassment to the Hilton brand. Has not been updated in nearly TWO DECADES (18 years). Literally a walk back into the 90s. Shows bad leadership on the owners, upper management and Hilton executives. Furniture is worn, wallpaper still in rooms, carpet is pitiful. Condition shows lack of care. Space is good and staff is nice. Only positives. Take...
