On a business trip to Chicago last week, I stayed at the Embassy Suites Lakefront downtown and had a very pleasant stay. The pricing for a relatively new hotel was very economical at $102 per night which included free made to order breakfast every day and Manager's Cocktail party every weekday night. I stayed on the top floor and had a remarkable view of downtown Chicago and the bedroom part of the suite had a comfortable bed to sleep on with a flat screen TV for late night viewing. The sitting room had a sleep sofa, two comfortable chairs, another flat screen TV and a padded ottoman that made it like feel like home. The large table serves as a dining table on one side and work station on the other. The Embassy offers free hi speed wi-fi to the Hilton Honors members that worked without a hiccup during my entire stay, Bathroom had great hot water and a rain shower head that felt luxurious, The housekeeping service performed their duties quietly and efficiently.
There were two glitches that happened during my stay and one was handled quickly and professionally. On the first day, I smelled smoke and a burning insulation smell. Within minutes, several members of the staff including the chief engineer that helped locate the source and solution. I was so impressed with the speed and efficiency and each day when I saw the engineer, he asked if there was anything he could do. He was one of the nicest facility maintenance people I have ever encountered in a hotel. The other glitch is the choice of liquors offered for the cocktail party each night, Cheap watery beers flowed from the taps, less than memorable wines and bottom of the barrel whiskies were included but if you ordered normal brand names. the prices were outrageous, Needless to say, I went only one night to this reception. One night was so cold, I stayed in and ordered room service instead of going out and the food, cooked on premise was very tasty and satisfying. All in all, the room was very comfortable, the staff courteous, helpful and friendly, and general condition of the hotel was excellent.
