4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our annual conference was held at one of the hotels on the water whose facilities were more updated than this property. However, I purposely chose the Embassy Suites due to more space being available in the rooms for our 8-day stay, plus the availability of a refrigerator and microwave. The staff here is top-notch. There is a full, cooked breakfast... More

My friend and I stayed here for four nights to attend a conference being held at the convention center. Our organization had arranged for buses to run to/from the hotel but we found the 0.7 mile walk to be very manageable and enjoyable given the beautiful weather. The complimentary breakfast was very convenient and had a good variety of hot... More

Has separate living room. Room comes with microwave and mini-fridge. Complimentary breakfast served every morning. Food is good. You can have cook-to-order breakfast. In the evening,... More

Overall experience was great, hotel beautiful, room very nice, but living 250 mi. from hotel did not look my vehicle over before we left. Found a scratch on the driver's door when I stopped to get gas. Valet held door open when they delivered my truck.

There is much to be pleased about with this hotel. The location, across the road from the day, is excellent for walks and it is not far from the Gaslamp Quarter. The rooms themselves were comfortable with a separate sitting room and bedroom. The children slept in the sitting room on a pull out bed which they loved. We did... More

This hotel is very attractive, with Koi ponds in the breakfast/reception area and granite counters in the bathroom and bedroom. It is very well located, not far from the convention center and gaslight district and also close to Little Italy, where we have family. The pool is nice and they have a lovely place for the hot tub -- outdoors... More

The Good News: The hotel staff are perfect. The hotel perks are perfect. The hotel location is perfect. The hotel cleaning crew is perfect. The Bad News: The lobby/dining area/room/corridor décor is outdated and appears dirty...but with a little remodeling this hotel would be perfect!

Very spacious, peaceful, lovely outlook over the bay, good location, short drive to airport. Couldn't believe the happy hour every evening which had some nice nibbles and FREE drinks (alcohol included). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful views, close to the incredible Sea-Port Village, one of the best complimentary breakfasts we have every had. Over-all, a great visit. The staff was especially helpful. The interior was clean, and peaceful. We were a little worried about the noise, since all the rooms face indoors towards each other, but the spacious rooms, with the bedrooms facing the exterior,...
