Fabulous 8.8 From 1,804 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Blankets weren’t clean nor was the shower. Having to pay for parking on top of hotel fees was a bit much and unappreciated. Even had to pay extra if you wanted to use the cart to take belongings to your room.

Very Good 8.0
Service With “NO” Smile ...
Loved the location, the hotel itself was great. I loved the rooms and the layout, very comfortable for a little home away from home. My only complaint is that rude service especially in sales and catering when they refuse to accommodate us with a free meeting room for one simple hour upon our arrival so we could do a group check in and get things off to a good start. We didn’t need a water station or anything just an empty room for an hour and they wanted to charge $300 it was also the way they handled it very unprofessional! The lady even snapped “We are running a business here”. News flash so am I which is what I was doing there. We booked 12 rooms for 2 nights each (some 3 nights) and spent a lot of money on parking, gift shop/snack, room service and more. I didn’t think using an empty room with some chairs was an unreasonable request. Ultimately we just used the open seating/breakfast area for free and saved $300 but it wasn’t the professional image we like to portray nor did it do anything to enhance their professional image either. Very disappointed. Even room service and front desk staff had an attitude ... service with NO smile should be their motto. That didn’t bother us as much as the incident with sales & catering. You’d think they’d want to assist the businesses doing business at the hotel especially. Lesson learned.

Fair 4.0
Disappointed....this place needs some changes
I have frequently stayed at Embassy Suites and have stayed at this one before as well (10 years ago). I was really disappointed at the cleanliness and quality of this hotel now. I was disappointed at the breakfast service and happy hour. It was completely full of people and there weren’t enough tables to accommodate guests. The floors were incredibly sticky and very dirty in that area. When asked to have a table cleaned, it was met with an eye roll and only half the table being cleaned as I was standing there holding 2 babies with 2 other kids in tow. Breakfast was about the same. It was extremely crowded and we went early in the morning to try and avoid the crowd. We went at the hotel’s recommended time for low traffic. It was a 30 minute wait for the fresh cooked line. For such a large hotel, I found it odd that their seating area wouldn’t be larger to accommodate more guests (or having a larger breakfast options area), especially when people stay there for the free happy hour and free breakfast. Breakfast was sub par. Again with the sticky floors and dirty tables met with a little attitude when asked for help cleaning them off as my husband and I were dealing with babies. The room had seen better days and had 2 slumpy bad mattresses and horrible pillows. Carpet felt gross and bathroom needed lots of love. With 4 kids the last thing you are going to do after unpacking is ask for a different room. Room service left a lot to be desired...ick.

Servive was excellent. Pool clean and comfortable. The breakfast was first class too. Fresh made omelets were fantastic, along with anything else you can imagine.
