Default Embassy Suites
Hello there! We cruised out of Tampa on the Legend last year & also stayed at the Embassy Suites Downtown. I know you had some concerns about the price but it was worth it to us considering the amenities. Their rooms are all suites, which is great for us traveling with 2 kids. Also, the free breakfast is a great perk. It is a hot breakfast with cooked to order omelets, not just some cold cereal (that saved us a lot of $$). They also have to nightly happy hour with free cocktails and snacks. It was a great location, close to the terminal, and close to the Ebor City area of Tampa which has a lot of great restaurants and shops. We bought cheap passes to the trolley & rode around to see the area. I know there are some other Embassy Suites in Tampa, one right near the airport which was cheaper & it would not cost a lot for a cab to the terminal on cruise day, as it is not very far. Good luck & have a great cruise. Tampa is a nice port to leave from! :-)
