I stay at this hotel every other year for a week at a time for a work conference. The hotel is nice and has a lot of benefits, one of which is its superb staff. Every staff member I met was excellent to work and interact with. The facility is great, but the rooms are starting to show a bit... More

We stayed at this Embassy Suites on Saturday, July 19th. The hotel is nice, and the staff couldn't be sweeter. However I did have a couple of issues: 1. The Manager's Reception from 5:30 - 7:30 is very cheaply managed. The snack offerings were goldfish, mixed snack mix, ranch dressing and picante sauce. Pitiful. Also, no Pinot Grigio was offered....

We normally stay at this hotel two or three times a year for various functions. This year we were there for a family vacation with two other vacations, but one of the three elevators was down for repair or maintenance. For the entire four days we were there regardless of what time it was, we were struggling to gain access... More

This is a nice Embassy Suites. The front desk staff were efficient, if not very accommodating or friendly. It can be very crowded, and had a bank of elevators down, which caused lines to form. The breakfast always spilled out into the bar and lobby areas because of the crowds, but it was well managed, and there was plenty. I... More

For a relatively new Embassy Suites, this one is not worth the high cost. We have stayed at many Embassy locations and paid much more for this one, but did not receive amazing service as you would expect with the price. We took a family vacation and booked 4 rooms. We requested the rooms together, but were told they were... More

First for the positives: The hotel lobby is very attractive and the staff is extremely courteous and helpful. There was easy access to the highway and the hotel was very close to shopping and restaurants. Additionally, I enjoyed the omelets made for us and the selection of fruit. And the disappointments: We ended up with two stays over the course... More

This is a very large hotel and was very crowded when we were there. They had an elevator down which was extremely inconvenient, but most everyone was patient. This is a pet friendly hotel which is nice for those who have pets. When we got to our first room, the smell, for us, was just too strong. The hotel quickly... More

There was a dog turd behind the door. Hair on the bathroom floor. Pool was dirty. Breakfast tasted like it was freezer burned. The staff was not helpful. White stain on the couch (bodily fluid?) Loud hallway noise. Unpleasant especially for the price.

Nothing shocking here. It is the standard Embassy Suite hotel. Breakfast was excellent and the happy hour drinks were great. They were a little slow on replenishing the snacks for happy hour, but they had a larger variety than I've seen at other Embassy Suites happy hour.

Small square pillows make getting comfortable difficult at best. Other than that the hotel was great. Clean, quiet, and nice amenities. I would stay here again but would definitely bring my own pillows.
