Came here for work and the hotel stay was great. The location of the hotel is not very convenient to a lot of things to do, but the hotel was nice. The best part about the stay was the customer service at the breakfast buffet. Gabriel is very attentive to your needs and goes out of his way to make...

We had the Presidential Suite, which is large with a large well appointed bathroom. The decor of the hotel is dated and a bit worn. We like this location for checkups and the staff is nice etc. we paid $350 per night and that is not value for the decor of entire property. Glad to be there for convenience to...

Great hotel, great location, very family oriented hotel. I would definitely come back to this location. I was there with my boyfriend for a couple get away. But while we were there we were very impressed with the Friday and Saturday night movies for the kids in the atrium. It's a great idea that other hotels should take up. It...

Then the "free breakfast" was truly disgusting!!!! The "potatoes" were frozen hash brown squares;;;; not potatoes..... overall the poor presentation was horror... the server wanted to sit us...

I have stayed here 5 nights (3 visits) in the last month. Its a typical Embassy Suites in terms of layout, decor, etc. What sets this one apart is the amazing staff.

I've stayed at this hotel in the past without problems. However, the first room we got at check-in was dirty. The beds were made some someone had attempted to clean the room. There was a head scarf on the living room floor and the toilet still had tissue in the commode. We were able to move no problem but the...

Rooms weren't ready upon arrival, I wasn't told my reservation request wasn't a guarantee. I needed ajoining rooms due to traveling with children. Front desk clerk said he'd call me 10-15 minutes, I had to contact him after 25 minutes of waiting to hear if the rooms were ready. This was the worst Embassy Suites stay I've ever encountered.

I checked in electronically because I am a Hilton Honors member. They automatically assigned me to a smoking room (smelly and dirty) regardless the fact that in my preferences it states that I do not smoke. They said that there were no other rooms available. The manager came out, heard my complaint, turned around and did nothing,.

Gabriel at breakfast buffet was very helpful. He was very kind. We almost missed the breakfast but he kindly went to get more syrup for us. The pool was nice. I just felt like there wasn't enough staff overall.
