“out of town wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

My Daughter got married in Virginia and we wanted a great hotel for guests to stay. They were coming from around the world, New york, New Jersey, Conn. Russia and Ukraine, so I wanted them to be impressed and feel special.. This hotel staff went far, far beyond all that I could have ever hoped for. my guests were extremely impressed and happy with this hotel. We blocked 20 rooms, they provided a shuttle service to and from the wedding which was 3 miles away (a nominal fee after 10:00 pm) which I did'nt have to worry about them drinking at the wedding and driving.
They had a full breakfast buffet in their beautiful terrarium and all the wedding guests loved eating together. Everyone was so friendly, Bobbie the man at front desk was so nice, my five year old nephew befriended him and still talks about his friend Bobby at the visit to Virginia. The pool was great, the service outstanding and of course, the rooms were large, clean and great.
The young adults (around 25 years old) took off on foot to tgifs for a "night cap"....the adults stayed at the Hotels bar for the night. A good time was had by all, not one bad report back to me about they stay, The newly weds got the suite which the hotel put rose petals around the jaccuzzi and champagne upon their return from the wedding ceremony.....

We arrived at the Embassy Suites around 7:00 PM. We had just finished driving a 7-hour distance from Atlanta. (We are driving to Maine.) There had been heavy thunderstorms and winds, so the hotel had it's power out. I had to do work on the internet for at least three hours, so I knew we probably should keep driving and find a place with power. However, all hotels in the area with power were booked up. We went out to eat and called the place back. They had just gotten their power back, so we ended up going there. Everything was running smoothly despite the issue and we got checked in very quick. Our rooms were nice and clean. Everything was nice, and the suites have more space than regular rooms. Their breakfast was superb as hotel breakfast's go. All Embassy Suites have made-to-order omletes and they were not bad at all. They also had eggs, bacon, french toast, muffins, and the usual things. I also learned that had we arrived earlier the night we stayed, even though the power was out, they have a Manager's Reception in the lobby with drinks and h'orderves. Overall, the stay was nice and though the power was out, the hotel was organized and everything got on track soon.

We arrived very tired after a long trip. The staff was wonderful to us! Our suite was a welcome sight. We hooked up to internet, ordered room service and relaxed in clean comfort for the evening. Bobby and Katie at the front desk were a big help with the 70 people staying for a weekend wedding. Nora in Housekeeping assisted us with many small things. At breakfast, Missy helped get our group together. I can't say enough about this facility and will now always look for Embassy Suites first. The staff is outstanding!!! Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter.

First time at this property but have stayed at Embassy suites before. Offered corner suite but changed it no bother as we wanted a tub not just shower. Plenty of towels and toiletries daily. Quiet air con plenty of hot water day and night. Good internet access. 2 HD TVs.Breakfast was not Embassy suites best, cold mostly and greasy bacon and sausage but plenty of fruit toast and pastries and made to order omlettes. Evening managers reception with drinks and nibbles was good and as ALL staff proved customer satisfaction was important to them. Thanks to big Mike at breakfasts very polite and helpful. 4 lifts. Small pool and full of kids when we were there so didnt try it. We had room at the back and it was quiet. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near ice machine

We found the executive suite attractive, clean and with modern furniture, fixtures and electronics. The bed was comfortable, the shower hot both morning and night (although the pressure left a bit to be desired) and the air system quiet and more than efficient. WiFi signal offered uninterrupted streaming of Netflix and Hulu. Basically, as a Hhonors Gold it was what I have come to expect from a well-managed Hilton property.

There were two mentionable pros. One, the friendliness of the employees and second, the free breakfast bar. I think a lot of us have gotten so we now just take a breakfast bar for granted. We shouldn't. This particular one had such pleasant personnel who were always on the go. There was honestly never a single moment when at least one station wasn't being resupplied or replaced with fresh product. The hot food was fresh and nicely prepared. Although we didn't take advantage of the 'cook-to-order' station we sat right beside it and the food coming out looked wonderful and the young man who was totally in control of the never-ending but quick moving line had a great personality.

We did find the outside noise level from people talking surprising and we were on the sixth floor. I would suggest a room towards the back, rather than the front of the hotel. Of course, inconsiderate guests who show up at 3AM and talk loudly might be heard from any location.

We had one issue. It was an issue that occurred overnight and was disturbing but also an issue that could happen at any hotel. There would be no purpose served in mentioning the details of the issue but rather the manner in which it was handled. I made the person checking me out on Sunday morning aware of the issue and just asked that her manager contact me at some point to discuss it. Folks, there really isn't a need to get a loud huffy-puffy attitude about things that happen. Things happen. The young lady immediately offered her apologies and told me she was a supervisor and in less than a minute had adjusted my bill which I considered the appropriate and just response in this particular instance.

Kudos to the young lady for handling the situation in a proper manner and kudos to the manager of the hotel for giving this employee the latitude to resolve such issues on the spot. Well done.

Yes, I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat. It's both comforting and impressive that the entire staff puts 100% customer satisfaction first....and it shows.

I have stayed at this property several times over the last year and their customer service has always been consistently GREAT. Especially staff member Alexander Harris and the women that work the food services area of this property. Keep up the good work guys!

Stayed the night on our way to the east coast. The reception was great, with mixed drinks, wine and beer. They also served some nice cheeses, etc. Breakfast was delicious, with plenty of fresh fruit, omelets, etc. Room was a typical embassy suite room, which I think is a good thing. The only thing I can find fault with is the slllooowww elevators. Everything else was great.
