Stayed at this hotel for our son's graduation from one of the local universities, because all other properties were booked up. It was pricey ($199 / night), but there was a lot going on in the city, including baseball games, commencements, conventions, etc.
The building is a former department store, such that everything is super-sized. It's a nice combination of old architecture and new interiors.
Albeit pricey valet parking, the crew that works the front door / valet parking were SUPERB. Always the same guys who recognize you; always friendly; kept our car out when we went up to our rooms for a short stint; helped with bags, luggage, loading / unloading. They were 5-star.
Huge rooms, hallways, high ceilings.
Clean and new interiors and furniture; comfortable beds and pullout sofa in LR.
Comfortable central air and heat.
Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries.
Close to the ballpark and restaurants (e.g., Pie just across the street, Starbucks around the corner, food trucks down the street)
Awesome made-to-order breakfasts.
All the perks you expect of an Embassy Suites, done very well.
The drawbacks (there weren't many):
Evening "free" reception was really lousy; cheap beer and liquor; bad snacks. We only went once - don't waste your time there with so many amazing bars and happy hours in the city to experience.
Had to beg for more shampoo and soap. I think they just forgot to give us more when they cleaned the room.
