I'm currently at the Embassy Suites Bogota with my husband and two small kids, which makes a suite necessary. We're using Hilton points for our week stay. The folks here are just wonderful! The room is large and nicely appointed. The service is outstanding. I only speak English but staff speak enough English that this has not been a problem; most of the time they anticipate my needs before I ask.
When we arrived, my toddler was screaming about his interupted nap; the kind folks at the front desk tried to cheer him up and rushed forward with warm milk in a kids cup to comfort him. After we arrive in our room, they called up to see if he wanted any soup. Our specific room did not have a sofa bed, so they made up a roll-away bed for my older child and a pack-n-play for the toddler. When we return to our room, both bed and pack-n-play are made with their toys/dolls tucked in...a nice touch from our housekeeper.
We love the free breakfast buffet, which has enough local food to please my Colombian-American husband and enough American-style food to make this gringa feel comfortable. Coffee is great (of course), eggs to order, multiple fresh juices, fresh fruit, breakfast pastries, cold meats and cheeses, bacon, pancakes, soups, sausages, arepas, etc.
We've ordered room service several times. It's been fast, large portions, delicious, and reasonably priced. One of my complaints about Bogota is the lack of green vegetables; ES room service has huge green salads (get the appetizer size), huge club sandwiches, and generous and delicious soups (try the ajiaco).
We rented a car and park in the hotel garage without difficulty...much easier than getting a taxi since we have two carseats. My husband drives...I don't have the nerve here. Haven't tried the managers reception, gym, or spa services. No pool at this location.
The bathtub is HUGE, with lots of hot water and good water pressure. Lots of fluffy towels. Very quiet toilet. Ample toiletries. Good blackout curtains. The bed is VERY comfortable; I've slept like a baby. The roll-away bed is also comfortable.
The room is a true suite. We have a king-sized bed behid a door that closes. The living room is ample size, even with the roll-away bed in it. The tub/toilet are behind another door. The bathroom sink area connects the bedroom and living area. There is also another sink in the entry area. The suite has two flat-screen TVs...many of the stations are in English with Spanish subtitles.
Everyone--the front-desk staff, bell staff, breakfast staff, room-service and our unseen housekeeper--have been wonderful. They've gone out of their way to make us and the kids feel welcome.
This is our second stay here. We'll absolutely be back here our next time in Bogota
