Stayed here for the Promat 215 show. Beautiful hotel. Excellent and caring staff with quick response. Suite was lovely. Appreciated the quick hot water! Only downside was having to take 2 elevators to get in and out or to go smoke either on street or hidden in the valet area..

Our visit was awesome and everyone was very nice. Our only thing that we didn't like was that the beds were not queen size beds and the front desk told us that they were queen size, and the bathroom lighting was not ideal for women putting on makeup. Other wise it was a great stay

I stayed here for 3 nights with my 6 YO son. Every single employee we encountered was super friendly, especially the bellmen downstairs. Room was very clean, and newly renovated. Love the free nightly snacks. Pool was nice, loved the sauna. Best of all this hotel really gives you the feel of a super fancy hotel but paying half the... More

The location is perfect and the price was just right for my budget. The cabs were always a button push away. Everyone worked hard at making my stay comfortable. The complementary breakfast and the manager's reception was well worth the stay. I will surely use the Embassy Suites again soon!

Older hotel with a fantastic location...But "older" is the word ! Now in the process of renovating. Something that should have been done years ago...but they are working on it. Some rooms have great views...but others you get what you get !

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel for our group of high school students. The fumes from the pool were too strong so the pool didn't get used as much as they had hoped. The staff was very accommodating, the breakfast was perfect for a long day of site seeing. We will be using them again for future trips.

Hotel is freshly renovated, modern music plays in lobby, room is spotless, free happy hour drinks are basic, yet refreshing.The best part of my stay so far is the amazing made to order breakfast. White egg omelettes and Seatle's best coffee started the morning off well. No complaints. Bartenders and bussers are polite.
