Staff rude and confused about availability of in suite dining. Remove "room service" as an option at this hotel. "Person that does that doesn't come in until 3 PM" "no, wait, they can help you, let me transfer you" BLAH, blah, blah, although courtesy info in rooms, website and this site say otherwise. If you remove this as a listed... More

Excellent location, friendly and professional staff, very comfortable beds, good buffet for breakfast-although I missed the biscuits and gravy that are no longer offered! Did not attend Complimentary Evening Social-but everyone looked like they were having a fine time!

We have stayed in this hotel several times. They now charge an $8/day parking charge, even though the hotel was 3/4 empty and their rates are higher that other hotels in the area. The breakfast was good with made to order omelets. The "reception" in the evening consisted of a bowl of potato chips and a bowl of goldfish crackers.

I stayed here for one night and enjoyed my stay. From check in to check out, the process was smooth. My room was clean and of course the Embassy Suites 'extras' were a welcome bonus.although the hotel is connected to the convention center and there was a convention during my stay, it was not an inconvenience to me at all.

Wonderful hotel. Wonderful staff. I really enjoyed my stay here. Although I didn't have time to order the hot breakfast and ate the buffet breakfast, I noticed how wonderful and aromatic the food on other guests' plates were. I will definitely stay here again.

I really enjoyed the stay and thought the property was very nice. Great location near the outlet shops and also a nice conference area. There are also several nice restaurants within a reasonable distance but not within walking distance. I stayed in a king suite. Very nice. I would stay here again.
