I stayed three days here recently for business. The hotel is very nice for an Embassy Suites - felt like a real step up from their usual style. It is primarily a business and convention type hotel. Clean spacious suites with great desk and work facilities. Free internet was helpful. Easy walk to several nearby restaurants and bars in the... More

The rooms were fine and I enjoyed the included breakfast. However, I don't like to be charged for parking and for internet access. With most hotels, both are free. If this hotel had not been close to my meeting, I would not have stayed here. Next time, I will know to stay a little further away and save about $35.

the Embassy Suites has a good location in the city center. On the groundlevel there is a starbucks for coffee. Aditionally there are to restaurants, one on the top level with nice views.

First, I don't know how this hotel could only have 1 person working at the front desk at almost all time nearly 400 rooms. Second, you'll wait at least 3-4 minutes for an elevator. Finally, this hotel has a MAJOR security problem and I wouldn't stay here if it was your last option. My room key wasn't working so I... More

The hotel was across the street from the marriott and right near the water. I really enjoyed walking at night along the river bank and trying near by places to eat. The breakfast was outstanding and the service was good also for the managers reception in the evening. I'll be back!:)

Went down for a conference in early July. We arrived early and the young lady at the front desk was kind enough to upgade us to an upper floor room with a view of the water.

Called front desk several times and finally a maintenance man came to the room and was so rude. Needless to say the air was not working properly and was never repaired. They would not bring a fan or anything to help cool the room. The lady who checked me in was awesome and so friendly. Breakfast was great also!! Just... More
