I love Embassy Suites overall usually. This particular ES in Baton Rouge is the standard and would have gotten at least a "Very Good" rating. However, for a business class hotel especially it should have dependable fast wireless for free. $10 bucks PER DEVICE? Uh uh. This is almost 2013 why charge for this service, when even Mickey D's gives it to you for free? That's was the words of my 18 year old son!
To their credit...the hotel did waive my fee. You can expect the usual from Embassy Suites in Baton Rouge, it is clean, comfortable, the staff overall what one should expect. The breakfast was good with variety but the lines to the cooks were confusing and the pancake cook was a bit rude....but I will forgive that because perhaps they were overwhelmed with the crowd and I wasn't in the best of moods since there was a charge for wireless.
Also, the shower was hot but the plumbing was a bit shaky -- the shower spray was off and with the shower on it continued to leak water out of the faucet. Oh yeah, I started to watch 2 movies on the one HBO channel and then after about 15 minutes the signal dropped. Boo.
The price was reasonable...so it is worth a stay if you don't need to stay connected.
