Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa USF Near Busch Gardens

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I love this hotel because its near every thing, it's clean the stuff are friendly.

We decided to book this hotel merely as it was conveniently located to the sporting venue where our tournament was being held. The staff was professional, but not overly welcoming. The room was comfortable, roomy, and VERY QUIET. The latter being very important to us. The property in general could be "freshened" as it appeared a bit dated. The morning breakfast buffet was well stocked, and included much variety in the food choices. The evening "cocktail reception" was a nice touch after being on the go all day. Overall an adequate choice for a place to stay while in the area.

Great location for Busch Gardens and USF. Great breakfast

Overall good hotel with very good breakfast evening snacks. Room is spacious but bathroom fixtures needs updating. Sofa bed is not comfortable at all. Still good enough for short stay.

Convienient, nice hotel, good staff. Breakfast and happy hour both are above average. Will definitely stay again!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Embassy Suites USF. The hotel staff were professional and courteous. The breakfast was yummy! The rooms were clean. Upon entering the hotel, the aroma was pleasant and view was beautiful. We enjoyed the swimming pool and gym facilities. Everything was great! The only hiccup was I had to go to the front desk 2-3 times because I couldn't access my room and they gave me a new key card. Finally, they had facilities come and he too couldn't get in. He then realized that it was the battery and came back with a tool that allowed him to enter the room. Following this, he replaced the battery, apologized again and went on his way.

We heard about this place through a coworker who loved it as a weekend getaway. We have a 3year old, and they were wonderful helping us with anything we needed for our family or daughter. Very easy to find and near everything we could need. Very clean and wonderful staff. Excellent place.

Nice, clean, close to Busch Gardens, good value! Will recommend!

This hotel was perfect for a couple going to Busch Gardens. The price was very affordable. The shuttle was a great way to get to the park and avoid costly and distant parking. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. They host a free happy hour each evening and a great breakfast for on your way out in the morning. Definitely recommended! We will be staying here again.

we were please in this hotel, we enjoyed all the amenities friendliness and cleaness.

it was fine.... too pricy. Stayed in much better hotels before for this price.

This has to be one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. The rooms were clean and inviting, and the complimentary drinks at night were always a plus. The breakfast with made to order omelettes was the best I have had! The staff was courteous and friendly at every turn. Outstanding!

Good hotel. Good city. I like the hotel. It is good and clean and its staff are helpful. I like it.

It was a great place to stay & would recommend. I was very impressed with the room, it was very cozy & relaxing .

It was great.Can't wait to stay again.Breakfast buffet was awesome , all fresh

The hotel was conveniently located near family and attractions. Breakfast was ok and the staff was helpful.

We visited from Washington state and had a granddaughter playing a soccer match on campus. So, the location was perfect for us. The complimentary breakfast was top notch. There were no issues with anything and several of the staff went above and beyond expectations.

Cleanliness was a strong point, but sadly the bed was very uncomfortable. The set up of the room was great and we enjoyed having our own separate bedroom from the living area. The lock and over all door on the bathroom was broken which was odd, but we are a couple so it didn't really bother us. We tend to make the best of everything and enjoy the pluses.

staff was very polite .helped me with any questions I had.

We need to stay very close to USF and this was an excellent option!
