Walking inside the Embassy Suites, my immediate reaction was that it reminded me of a rainforest cafe. You know, that restaurant? The rooms are very spacious and come with free WIFI. That alone is a major selling point. I still can't believe there are 5-Star hotels that still make you pay.
I ordered room service and the service and food was fast and actually quite good. During this post, I thought I would go ahead and take a break and get some water from the nearby vending machine and the one on my floor (4th floor) had no water, the 3rd and 2nd didn't accept my dollar and the ground floor for some reason charged $2 haha. Eventually, I got change for my dollar and went back to the 3rd and finally got my water!
Other then the useless trip I just made for a bottle of water, the hotel has a gym, small sized pool, and jacuzzi, all of which seem very popular among the guests.
*I traveled to this location on 8/7/2010. Relatively new to Trip Advisor, and didn't realize it wouldn't let me select 2010.
