Went for Memorial Day weekend to visit Busch Gardens with my girlfriend. From check-in to helping me throughout my stay, Jesse made sure everything was great. Although some things throughout the hotel could've been a little better, Jesse did everything he could to ensure my stay was amazing. P.S. - Game 7 is going to be awesome, Jesse!

Stayed for a business conference. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Conference rooms were a bit chilly but that is better than too warm! Breakfast was more than adequate with a varied selection. The lobby is nicely designed. One drawback, a bit noisy for breakfast with the TV's the waterfalls AND a player piano.

Outstanding service from the reception desk to the free shuttle van driver! Rooms are suites, which give so much more space. I was selected the guest of the day, which meant I was given a movie package with popcorn, free movie of my choice in my room and discounts at the restaurant and bar! Suites are very clean and breakfast(...

We stayed at Embassy Suites for our 21st anniversary trip. We had the most incredible time at the hotel. They upgraded us to the 8th floor. They made it an unforgettable anniversary. The staff is so courteous and make you feel at home. Thank you for going above and beyond for us.

I have been staying here for many years on business and have always enjoyed the stay, however the hotel could use a little updating i.e. carpet is old and worn looking and had a few plumbing issues in our room in the bathroom

From the time we entered the Embassy, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Melissa, at the manager's reception, was great!!!

I loved the wonderful breakfast each morning and the amazing musician on Saturday morning. Gabriel was one of the breakfast servers and provided a very welcoming demeanor and was most helpful. He deserves special recognition on the team. Thanks for the great 4-day stay!
