The best part of this stay was the service by the breakfast staff. We met Gabriel during breakfast and he was extremely responsive to all of our needs. We got there just as it was ending, but he went out of his way to ensure we got the food we wanted before everything was put away.

She was on top of everything, fast and very bubbly at 6am. She went above and beyond when I asked her for some salt to gargle with for a sore throat. Its nice... More

The location wasn't the best, but it was where my Husbands class was located. The hotel is a little worn in areas but not bad. I used the workout room twice and was very pleased with what they had available. The pool area was wonderful and everything was in working condition. We really enjoyed our server Gloria in the morning... More

I stay at Embassy Suites because of the amenities. When I am on a business trip, and restricted to spending about $50, it's great to be able to start the day with a complimentary hot breakfast. Granted the quality of the food at this location was slightly lacking, it was never the less available from 6:30a - 9:30ish. I won't... More
