I grew up in the Greenville area and work takes me back there about once a month. As such, I have stayed at almost all of the Marriott and Hilton properties in the Area. Greenville is a great place for a number of reasons so the purpose for my visit usually helps me pick where I am going to stay.
I pick the Embassy Suites when I want it all. The breakfast crew is good and the food is carefully prepared. The Happy hour team is the same and takes time to see if there is more than can do to help. The entire staff is friendly from arrival to departure. As you would expect the rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. In fact, I got my first hand written note in months from the cleaning person that took care of my room. While I am always impressed when a staff member takes a moment to take an extra step to acknowledge my visit, I was not prepared for a real, genuine note that was more than a couple of words. It was a nice touch.
This was the first time I had time to play Golf at the Preserve and it was nice. The staff there was equally friendly and quick to answer the phone. Nice course layout.
Great value for the money and lots of room options. If your business takes you to ICAR, this is the best place to stay because it is close and convenient.
