    Amazing !!!

    This was the perfect venue to have a wedding ceremony and reception. We had a lot of guest from over seas and out of state so this was a great place to have the wedding so the families can enjoy what Tampa has to offer . Samantha Mann (who was in charge of coordinating the wedding from start to finish ) was amazing ! She was so helpful and kind . We looked at other places before Embassy Suites but she was what sealed the deal . She was very sweet and knowledgeable. I recommend this place with 5 stars . :)

    Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Victoria! It was such a pleasure to be part of such a special day for you & Saleh. Wishing you both a lifetime of love & happiness! :)

    Warm Regards,

    So glad I chose to have my special here!!! Not only is the hotel beautiful, the staff team are great. Lee Rodriguez the event coordinator is awesome! She is super quick to respond to emails and did anything she could to help out. The day of the wedding she was there to help calm me down when something didn't go as planned.Maria was super accommodating with our room blocks and even extended the great discount for our family members who booked late. The chef was excellent!! He allowed us to make small changes to personalize menu items and even took his time out after dinner during the reception to thank and congratulate us. Highly recommend!!!
