We booked a few nights to stay near the fireworks. YES they are right outside of the hotel. The place was packed. Curb appeal was nice, as was lobby. Rooms were typical for ES. Front desk was doing their best to handle the massive crowd. The Trolley is right outside the door. Parking is VERY expensive. We did not get a room on the better side for views. We faced the interstate. I am a Hilton Gold and cashed in 100,000 points for 2 nights. It was a nice hotel but not worth the points. The pool is VERY small ( on the 3rd floor) and no way can it work for such a large hotel. The breakfast was spread out and the staff was efficient. We were allowed to sit in a private area and that was nice. The reception was packed. I am not sure why some ES offer chips/ pretzels and dips while others offer fruit, veggies, cheese and other snacks. Would I stay again? YES if I had a meeting nearby, a wedding to attend or if I were going to take a cruise ship out. NO for a holiday weekend. Too many people made it uncomfortable ( packed elevators) for me. BUT a profit for ES, so they must be doing something right and perhaps others stay again and again!
