The location is great and super convenient to Busch Gardens and USF. Great complimentary breakfast as well a evening cocktail reception. Lobby and the hotel are BEAUTIFUL. Rooms are quiet and spacious and can easily accommodate a family of 5. Best place to stay in the area

First, you cannot beat the location and ease of getting to Busch Gardens. The Embassy is maybe 1.5 miles from the Busch Garden's parking lot, better yet you make a right out of the hotel entrance and shortly thereafter, minus waiting for a couple of stop lights, you will be turning into the parking lot. We arrived early, and our...

Has everything you need. Breakfast and suite perfect for families. Free shuttle to Busch Gardens was perfect and saved us $20. Staff was very friendly and helpful when we had to change rooms due to sofa bed being broken. Only negative is rooms need some updating.

Fairly typical Embassy Suites hotel. Open central atrium design with restarant, bar, and meeting areas in center. Location is great if you are visiting USF or nearby business parks. Room quality was fine, no complaints.

If you are concerned about cleanliness, go elsewhere. The rooms are very run-down. The first room we stayed in had a strong musty smell and stains everywhere. I do not have allergies, but my eyes were bloodshot and started swelling. The front desk staff was friendly and gave us a different room. It wasn't much better, but it was late....

This hotel is very tired, outdated and doesn't look clean. Great service from employees but overall would not stay again unless this was the only option. Location is close to H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Care Center.
