We arrived at this hotel and were greeted by the valet. He was very friendly and held a good conversation with me and my husband. Afterward we went into the lobby to check in. This lobby is out of the norm for Embassy Suites. I was pleasantly surprised by the luxurious decor instead of the usual atrium. The staff member who check us in was very friendly and efficient.
We arrived just in time to have our bags sent to the room and catch a drink at the complimentary happy hour. This was a nice perk after a day of driving. The bartender was just as friendly as the two other staff members we had encountered so far. Hubby had a gin & tonic, I enjoyed a glass of chardonnay and both kiddos has a Shirley Temple.
Afterward, we went to our room. Our family of 4 decided at the last minute that we were going to stay here. Even so, we were able to book a king suite. The room was small with not much of a view, but it worked for us. Our kiddos shared the pull-out sofa and Hubby and I were comfortable in the separate bedroom. The bathroom was clean and the Crabtree & Evelyn products were a nice touch. We all loved the pool! It was spacious, a good temperature, and there were two hot tubs as well.
Breakfast in the morning was great. It was buffet style with plenty of options. They had pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, an omelette bar, cereal, muffins, juice, coffee, tea, and more that I'm forgetting. We appreciated that check out was not until noon because it gave us some time to explore the nearby neighborhood. The hotel itself was in a good location for us. We were able to walk where we wanted to go and didn't need our car until we were checking out.
I would recommend this hotel and I would absolutely consider staying here again.
