“Great place to stay for a USF training event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Great hospitality, rooms and breakfast. Only about a 10 minute walk to the enter of USF's campus. Hotel itself is a standard Embassy Suites layout, but happy hour and breakfast seemed better than others I have stayed at.

This was a Excellent hotel experience. Very Beautiful, Clean, Nice and Very Service oriented place. Great Breakfast Buffet and Restaurant/Bar. Shuttle service to Busch Gardens was very convenient. Every Employer was very Friendly and Nice. Especially The Restaurant Manager Leslie Ciccarello. She was Great. ; ) We will defiantly be returning to this Embassy Suites.

Room Tip: Our room was in a back corner. Not very much traffic.

We stayed here for one night and booked this hotel through priceline. We were very happy with this hotel. It was very clean, excellent furnishings, huge room, and courteous staff. Breakfast was truly a treat, you could even special order your own omelettes! I would highly recommend this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Jennifer Cancho Grawunde on the sales team continues to provide amazing customer service to our organization not only for small transient travel, but also for large group bookings. The entire team works extremely hard to accomodate all of our guests needs, and we couldn't hope for a better partner hotel on-campus.

I recently dined at the Mangrove Grille at the Embassy Suites hotel and the hostess, Marie Menendez, was very friendly ~ she made our experience pleasant and we will return because of her. The service was wonderful and the food was great!

Embassy suites Busch Gardens was ok. I am used to Disney hotels, so it fell below standards. Its just average. Staff was fine, bartender great! As far as close to Busch Gardens excellent. The shuttle drive was great! Shuttle service well worth it.

Tyrone and Elba make the best omelets!!! My room was always spotless and it had an amazing view. The staff was wonderful especially when my best friend got stuck in the elevator. I didn't have any complaints. I would recommend them to everyone.
