What a suprise. A review of Embassy Suites Tampa Airport/Westshore
Embassy Suites is a well known name, with many hotels. Their service is top-notch, and the rooms are always clean, neat, well kept. Parking is plentiful and convenient.
Which is why I was so suprised when I arrived at the Embassy Suites Tampa Airport. The parking was horrid (half-block away!) and the room, while clean, was definitely not a typical Embassy room. For this, I was charged roughly a quarter more than my usual standard company rate.
I must have been spoiled by all the other outstanding Embassy Suites which I have stayed at, for I was very dissapointed with this one.
I only stayed for one night. Perhaps if you stay for more than one night you could get used to it, but for me, I say, no thank you.
One last thing to add...in the past I have been known to misplace the invoice for my trip. Most of the time this is not a problem, as a quick call to the Embassy I stayed at results in the accounting desk quickly faxing to me a copy of my invoice. However, this time, I got switched between two or three departments, only to get an answering machine. I can understand if it was lunchtime, or after hours to get a recording, but this was just after mid-morning.
In short, though the room was fine, there are a lot of other details, which in this day and age can make or break a chain. Personally, I found this Embassy to be sub-standard.
