Welcome to the Embassy Suites Tampa Downtown
Between the all-suite spaciousness, free happy hours, free breakfasts and convention center location, Priceline guests can't help but give Embassy Suites Tampa Downtown extremely high marks.
Considered the official Tampa Convention Center hotel, thanks to its direct sky-bridge connection, this 20-story all-suite accommodation is widely known for its exceptional style, taste and service. The 360 two-room suites are equipped with Suite Dreams bedding, microwaves, refrigerators and high-speed internet (for a daily service fee). Many suites also boast impressive bayside views. Freebies and amenities include a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast that's well worth waking up for, a free nightly manager's reception, top-notch fitness center, business center, on-site restaurant, Starbucks cafe and a cool rooftop pool with expansive bayside views. Valet parking is offered for an additional daily rate.
Along with being steps to the Tampa Convention Center, the hotel is just a two-minute walk to the St. Pete Times Forum, home of the Tampa Bay Lightning and the city's top concert and entertainment venue. If you'd rather beat the Florida heat, hop on the streetcar line in front of the hotel to get around downtown, the trendy Channelside district (including the Florida Aquarium and Port of Tampa) and Ybor City's vibrant restaurant and bar scene. The hotel is also just a five-minute drive to historic Hyde Park and upper-crust Bayshore Blvd. and seven miles from Tampa International Airport.
Far more than a convention center lodging, this all-suite hotel with free freebies and extras is an all-around fantastic choice for business and leisure.

Great if you're attending any events at the Forum and a short drive to Ybor City.

Too cold outside to use the pool, but water was very warm. It is a very narrow pool.

This hotel is ideally located near the Forum, the cruise terminal, and several bars and restaurants. In addition to the nearby night life, you can walk along the waterfront for miles. There is a Publix supermarket about 5 minutes walk, and a Walgreens within 10 minutes walk.

We enjoyed our stay. The Starbucks in the lobby was an added plus that we were not expecting. Staff was courtesous and attentive, shuttle service (BlueOne) to port facility was easy to book, breakfast was very good. Would definitely recommend.

Very welcoming, great value, high parking charge ($20 daily with unlimited in & out privileges) partially offset by an excellent free breakfast. Microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator in the room is always a nice touch. Having ice makers only on every other floor is a loser. We were on the 10th, I had to walk up to the 11th, but that one was broken. Therefore I had to walk up to the 13th to get ice. The next time I knew to go down from the 10th to the 9th but an up-scale hotel should have ice on every floor. Highly recommend this hotel, I would positively stay here again without hesitation.

Hotel is located right downtown and is convenient to the convention center. Hotel has mandatory valet parking and charges $20 for this. Other than that, it is similar to most other Embassy Suites, I have stayed at in the past. The breakfast was great, happy hour was great, and everyone was very nice. I had a leaky toilet which kept running every five minutes and the repair guy fixed it quickly and politely. ...
