The stay was nice for all the usual amenities Embassy Suites have to offer. But this property is starting to show its age. Good: Big rooms, laundromat (which was not mentioned on hotel website), breakfast availability. Average: Happy hour, service, comfort, clean (linens good, carpets bad). Bad: The breakfast was my worst ever at an Embassy Suites, worn or aged... More

We love when we can get a reasonably priced military discount at an embassy suites. The rooms were spacious, beautiful and just what we needed after a long day of travelling. It is somewhat dated but completely sufficient. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful, the beds were comfortable and the AC worked great.

Everything is ok for such a middle end good brand hotel. Only issue is that the air conditioner in room is very noise. I asked my friend and they all have the same issue. We had to adjust the temp to very low and then turn it done to get into sleep.

The hotel is clean. The beds are a little hard. The location is amazing. The concierge was helpful with tourist information. She was very knowledgable about the different things to do in the area. With all that good, I don't know if I would stay here again. They need another set of elevators. For a hotel of this size, four... More

The hotel was great. Really good location across from the bay. The breakfast was free and really couldn't complain about what it offered. There was also a free happy hour which had drinks and snacks. There is only valet parking at the hotel which is about $35/night which I think is fairly standard for hotels in the downtown area but... More

I usually stay at Embassy Suites when I plan on going to Gaslamp. The rates are fair priced and the rooms are pretty nice. The only problem I had this time which lowered my rating for Embassy Suites is that at the time of my reservation I was promised a premium suite located on the top floor, but in reality... More

Peter Z please let me take a moment to clarify the situation. I regret that there was a miscommunication in terms of premium suites. I will also share you comment on our follow-up with billing. Our premium suites are in fact on the second floor and contain a handful of extra amenities including Keurig coffee makers in those rooms. Those... More

Had a lovely stay at the Embassy and would definitely stay there again! We were traveling with a large group and three children under the age of 3. The hotel staff was GREAT and helped with all of our accommodations adequately. We had a 12th floor room overlooking the bay... it was AMAZING!

I selected this hotel because of its closeness to the San Diago convention center. Great hotel, Great location, across the street from Habor view, which by the way has a great board walk for walking and site seeing. Great area with lots of restaurants and sites of interest. Back to the hotel, the rooms were spacious and large with living... More

Family of 5, room was spacious and well appointed. Having 3 sinks made getting ready easier. View over the bay and towards the USS Midway was awesome, often we would keep an eye out for our Disney Cruise ship. Pool was refreshing (cold) but the kids still had a great time. Spa was super hot, but nice. Gym wasn't anything... More
