My husband stayed here for our anniversary. We knew it was near the Plaza and always enjoy Embassy Suites' manager's reception and breakfast. Overall we had a great experience. I with other reviews that it is ready for an update, but it was still nice. We requested a high floor away from the hotel to help with noise as other posters recommended. We still heard 2 ambulances going to the hospital during the night which woke us. Other than that it was quiet. The blackout curtains were great. I am a HIlton Honors gold member and they acknowledged that when checking in. My room wasn't available yet, so they found me one that was. They also hand delivered 2 bottles of water and crackers for free for being a Gold Member. We enjoyed the evening manager's reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. We were given tickets when checking in for drinks. We used the tickets at the bar. We weren't impressed with the bar tender though because he always insisted we tip. We thought that was really odd. We always tip bartenders, but didn't like being told we had to do it. We ran out of tickets and asked the front desk for more. They had no problem giving me more which was nice. I just had to show my ID. The waiter named Willie made the entire reception fun. He worked very hard cleaning tables and interacting with the people. He was much more enjoyable than the bartender. We ended up tipping him for his great service. They served chips, dip, and popcorn during the reception. This hotel is a bit of a walk to the Plaza so we used their convenient shuttle that runs from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The longest we waited for it was 5 minutes. Fabulous! We had the driver drop us off doorside to Houston's restaurant which was fabulous. When we were finished, we called and she picked us up doorside again. No problem with the shuttle. The breakfast was great for a hotel. Very typical of other Embassy Suites I have stayed. The buffet crew had a bit of trouble keeping the hot food stocked though. We never did get any meat because it was always empty. But in general, it was a nice breakfast. $10 parking with in and out priveledges. There was both underground covered parking, or outdoor parking. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly. I do think Hilton needs to start looking at this one for a remodel though. The door behind the check in counter was filthy. Would I stay again? Yes.
