The 2025 PGDC Race Weekend Official Host Hotel

Embassy Suites Tampa Convention Center

Room Block will open in May 2024!


The Gasparilla Distance Classic Association is thrilled to announce that it is continuing its relationship with the Embassy Suites Tampa Downtown Convention Center. Nestled in the heart of Downtown Tampa, the Embassy Suites Tampa Downtown Convention Center welcomes its guests to a vibrant and contemporary guest experience.

Embassy Suites Hotels guests get more with every stay, like free cooked-to-order breakfast, complimentary appetizers, and beverages at the nightly Evening Reception*, and every room is a two-room suite.

Connected via sky-bridge to the Tampa Convention Center, the all-suite hotel is steps away from the ABC Action News Health & Fitness Expo, one block from the 2025 PGDC Start & Finish Lines, and within easy walking distance to attractions such as the Florida Aquarium, Sparkman Wharf, Water Street and the Tampa Riverwalk.
