Camano Island, Washington
Reviewed November 14, 2015 via mobile

I stayed at the Embassy suites for five nights for a business trip. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfortable. The tap water is undrinkable. The biggest issue I had was in the common areas where it appeared that they were not air-conditioned. The hallway, elevator and lobby were very hot and stuffy. It was extremely uncomfortable. A hot...

This hotel is wonderful. It's bright, modern and beautiful. The location is perfect. It's located between the Amalie arena and the river walk. The rooms/suites are large and there's a real nice rooftop pool. The hotel provides free breakfast and lobby happy hour each day. The hotel is awesome, the hotel restaurant is absolutely awful!

Located right downtown walking distance to many things. Room was very nice with great views. I was visiting for a conference and the check in was very slow. We asked about hockey tickets and the front desk seemed like they new nothing about it even though the stadium is right next door. We also asked about the aquarium and they...

This hotel is so economical, rooms are clean and huge with refrigerator and living room; not to mention the free breakfast and drinks at night. The location is marvelous because they all are close to the function place like convention centers and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this to everybody.

This hotel provides comfort, a quality breakfast, and a nice evening reception. The staff was very helpful. There is a convenient walkway to the convention center, which limits the time spent in the heat of this southern city. I had trouble with the internet, but I did not report the problem, as it was not an essential service for us....

Terrible! Stay anywhere else including under a bridge! They change hours of breakfast and when confronted tell you it is listed in the fine print. When asked about why there is not better signage they make excuses. This was my first embassy suite stay in 10 years and I will not make this mistake again! I am leaving all Hilton...

I can't believe a conference size hotel would have a gym with 3 treadmills, 2 ellipticals (one was out of order), and 1 bike, where TVs didn't work on any equipment and the TV on the wall was BEHIND us. Room was okay, showed some wear and tear. Coffee was undrinkable, hence the reason a Starbucks was probably in their...

If I was writing this review just for a personal stay I probably would have chosen 4 stars but I booked a very expensive room that indicated it had room in the suite for a 10 person meeting so that we could have our low budget Board meeting over takeout right in the suite.
