Little did I know, when I wrote my original review of Embassy Suites a year ago that my words -- "I have no doubt if I'd come down with a cold, I would have gotten chicken soup" -- would be so prophetic. I arrived for a week's stay with a streaming, miserable, awful cold. When the light knock came with the word "Housekeeping," I wadded up my latest soggy tissue, shuffled to the door and opened it. There stood Hattie.
"Honey" she said anxiously, looking at my fistful of tissues, red nose and watery eyes. "You okay?"
"No," I wailed. "I'm so sick."
Well, she simply Took Over. Before I knew it, I was cuddled up with a cup of tea and a fresh box of tissues while she bustled off to find me -- what else? -- chicken soup. More tea, with lemon, was provided. She made sure I was warm, comfortable and had everything I needed, gave me a big hug and came back to see how I was doing before she left for the day.
It was friendly, motherly, loving treatment at a time when I most needed it. She checked at least twice a day, even when I was improved enough to get out and enjoy the city. And, no surprise, she left the room spotless.
The entire staff treated me with such warmth. What a pleasure to be greeted with smiles, friendly chat and genuine goodwill wherever I walked, and to see they were as pleasant to all guests, it wasn't just my bright and sparkling (if slightly congested) personality.
My husband and I loved the room as well: spacious comfortable and bright.
The moral: if you have to be sick away from home, I recommend 711. And, of course, there's my guardian angel, Hattie.
