Outstanding service from the reception desk to the free shuttle van driver! Rooms are suites, which give so much more space. I was selected the guest of the day, which meant I was given a movie package with popcorn, free movie of my choice in my room and discounts at the restaurant and bar! Suites are very clean and breakfast(...

We stayed at Embassy Suites for our 21st anniversary trip. We had the most incredible time at the hotel. They upgraded us to the 8th floor. They made it an unforgettable anniversary. The staff is so courteous and make you feel at home. Thank you for going above and beyond for us.

I have been staying here for many years on business and have always enjoyed the stay, however the hotel could use a little updating i.e. carpet is old and worn looking and had a few plumbing issues in our room in the bathroom

From the time we entered the Embassy, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Melissa, at the manager's reception, was great!!!

I loved the wonderful breakfast each morning and the amazing musician on Saturday morning. Gabriel was one of the breakfast servers and provided a very welcoming demeanor and was most helpful. He deserves special recognition on the team. Thanks for the great 4-day stay!

This Embassy Suites fit the bill in a serious pinch. We had to find a hotel day of and they had enough rooms available for the lot of us. Price point was also reasonable.

Reviewed 24 May 2016

The room we had was so outdated that if it wasn't for the location we needed close to the museum, I would have asked for my money back and went elsewhere. The carpet worn, the furniture old, it really needs a total updating. The worst part was the bed was very uncomfortable making our one night stay awful.
