It has been awhile since we stayed in Tampa pre cruise, but it looks like the Embassy Suites is very near the hotel we stayed in, which was either the Sheraton Riverwalk or the Mariott Waterside. Both are right on the river. Looks like the Embassy sits a little further back from the river, but the location in general is very nice and you can probably easily get to the Riverwalk.

The Riverwalk is beautiful with paved walkways, nicely landscaped and it takes you down to the Channelside Bay Plaza which has lots of nice shops and restaurants. The Florida Aquarium is right next to the Plaza as well and is a very nice small aquarium, great for kids. With your small admission, I think you got a free ride on their dolphin research boat. It was fun, a scenic ride down the river into Tampa Bay and educational as well. We did see lots of dolphin.

You will only be a short few blocks to the Port of Tampa, which is just beyond the aquarium area.
