Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center Completes Phase Two of Nearly $20 Million Renovation

Enhancements include newly designed guest suites, public space, restaurant and meeting rooms

TAMPA, Fla. - The 360-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center has completed its final phase of a multimillion-dollar property renovation. The transformation focuses on bringing forth a vibrant, contemporary design with a touch of coastal inspiration.

All the hotel’s public spaces are completely renovated to maximize and create functional space throughout the hotel. The hotel’s expansive atrium fosters an atmosphere of socializing and unwinding for guests. The renovated guest suites feature modern comforts, including two 55” flat screen high-definition TVs, a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave and a selection of gourmet coffee and teas. New window treatments and locally inspired artwork complete the look of the revitalized suites.

“We are extremely proud of our final product and are confident that guests will appreciate and enjoy our refreshed, contemporary look and feel. Our team has worked tirelessly to create an elevated guest experience throughout the entire hotel, and we are excited to share this with the public,” said Scott Ward, general manager. “Among the many hotel options in downtown Tampa, we are thrilled to both elevate our status and deliver extraordinary experiences for guests in 2020 and beyond.” 

More than 9,000 sq. ft. of newly renovated, flexible meeting space offers creative set-up options, advanced audiovisual equipment and high-speed WiFi Internet access. The event spaces include large meeting rooms, two boardrooms and pre-function space. The hotel’s dedicated and experienced staff offers personalized event planning and customized catering selections. 

The hotel also features TASTE, a new restaurant concept offering a beverage-centric dining experience. The menu is focused on American-style dishes with clean and straightforward preparations. 

Located at 513 South Florida Avenue, Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center is conveniently located in Downtown Tampa, directly connected to the Tampa Convention Center via Sky Bridge and minutes away from the Tampa Riverwalk and mixed-used entertainment and restaurant venues, such as Sparkman Wharf and Armature Works.
