As a frequent traveler who prefers suite hotels, I have found that the accommodations vary even within a chain like Embassy Suites. I stayed the next night at the Embassy Suites (Arcadia) which while not unpleasant was a different experience altogether.
This Embassy was newer and had some very nice amenities not always found in Embassy Suites hotels. The marble bathroom and shower and the upgraded living room furnishings were a nice touch. Everything else was standard and comfortable. The breakfast was the usual top notch and the fitness room had new (alas Precor) equipment.
Since I book partially on the location of outside fitness centers I can tell you there is a very nice 24 Hour Fitness directly across the street. The hotel does have passes (for a fee), but I am a member so there isn't a problem. The shopping center across the street also has several restaurants including TGIF.
Also, parking is underground, enclosed and FREE. Also check in was a breeze and I was given a suite on the seventh (top) floor.
Overall, a very nice hotel which I will stay at again.
