I stayed a night after my cruise before heading home. The hotel is nice and is across the street from a mall and near a Waffle House. I didn't partake in the Manager's Reception, so I can't comment on it. I've stayed at other Embassy Suites and the breakfast was better at those than at this hotel.
Also, the walls in the room are thin and the door didn't completed close (you could see out of the door through the crack), which made the room noisy at times. While in the room I made sure the door stayed locked.
I didn't report the issue to management. Other than the door issue, I never felt unsafe. The hotel truly is lovely. I wish the restaurant had been open when I was there; I wanted to try it.
There are plenty of choices in Tampa and this Embassy suites staff makes the difference..although the hotel is dated and the pool was under construction at the time, the staff makes up for any shortcomings.
