The entire staff were obviously happy to be serving the guests. Even encounters with maintenance staff in the elevators resulted in a friendly greeting and brief conversation. The breakfast and evening reception are nice perks. The location is convenient to transportation and restaurants - a short taxi ride from the train station.

Spacious room and a good value, especially with the excellent buffet breakfast included. We had trouble getting the room to warm up, especially the bedroom area. We were put into a handicapped room which was a bit annoying. Light in the bathroom was hard to find and needed to be set to go on automatically or manually... minor nuisance. Elevators... More

I booked this room through a Groupon. I called the Hotel to confirm and also add two people to my reservation-which made us a total of four. I spoke with "A" and "S" and they were both very warm, helpful, and accomodating. So, I was very saddened and surprised to find,that at check-in, I was not given the same warm... More

We stayed for a weekend in January and had a great time! We arrived at 12 PM and we were able to check into our rooms early. The rooms were great- everything was perfect. It is about an 8 minute walk to the center of the city but it is an easy walk. We were given free breakfast everyday at... More

The accommodations was great. However, the excellent customer service will be my main reason for coming back. Thank you Matt, Dyuana, Monique and Krestela for your outstanding service. You all Rock! Breakfast at TGI's was a very nice touch.

Located at 1776 Ben Franklin Blvd, this Embassy Suites branded hotel offers suites with separate living and bedroom rooms. Relatively quiet for a downtown hotel. Distinctive exterior shape is a multi-sided cylinder. The bedrooms are located on the outside of the basically pie shaped space. This allowed plenty of closet space in the bedroom. The living space expanded to the... More

Embassy Suites was a pleasant stay and represented great value for money. We paid around $179 p night for a 2x double bed suite. Two adults and two toddlers. That included breakfast at TGI's downstairs. Sure, the amenities and breakfast were very budget, the beds and bathroom were small, but great value given the hotel price. We also found the... More

You can stay at the Four Seasons for $300 or more per night, or you can stay at the Embassy Suites across the street for about $75 or more less per night. Either way, you are in the same great location on The Ben Franklin Parkway at 18th Street. At the Embassy Suites you will get a free hot breakfast... More

I don't usually provide reviews but I was so impressed with the customer service at this Embassy Suites. From the greeting I received at the Front Desk to all my interactions with the staff. I was especially impressed with Melvin- one of the engineers who had to do some emergency maintenance for my room. He was very professional and diligent.... More
