We stay at this hotel everytime we visit Destin. The free cook to order breakfast and happy hour makes this a great deal. Yes, the rooms might not be cleaned to my standards during the stay but they are huge suites and comfortable beds. We actually ate at the onsite restaurant 2 of our 3 nights and it was surprisingly affordable and delicious. The Calypso Cafe offered seafood and typical grill food but it was the same if not better than I would expect at many of the "tourist trap" restaurants on the beach. We had the Fried Lobster Club and Lemongrass shrimp and scallops...both were to die for! If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay at the beach, the Embassy Suites has you covered.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms do not face the ocean. If you would like a view, request a room on the 4th floor facing the ocean. They are more than accomodating if the rooms are available.

Clean rooms, restaurant by the lobby was excellent, very friendly staff. Very roomy, really enjoyed our stay here would definately recommend. Good location with easy access to dining and entertainment in Destin and the Sandestin area. Sandestin baytowne wharf is only a block away and beach is within walking distance.

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel for our Labor Day vacation to Destin, FL. This hotel is at an awesome location - the beach is right across the road - 3-4 minutes at the most. Its clean, clear wates, beautiful white sand beach. You can get as many beach towels as you want from the front desk. They also have a beach umbrella and chair service (for a price) which we did not use.
The service is spectacular - the crib was in our room just like we had asked for on the website - on the first night, my 16 month old was a little cranky about food - my wife asked the hotel staff if we could get some yogurt and they gladly gave us a couple of yogurts from their kitchen (from their breakfast stash). As he was playing around in the lobby - the manager gave him a beach toys set compliments of the hotel - the housekeeping lady always had a smile.
The person who made the omblettes in the morning was awesome - great smile and good conversation. The complimentary breakfast is pretty huge - the only compliant is that they dont change the hot items in the breakfast and it becomes boring after a couple of days. We took part in the manager's reception one night - some simple snacks but all you can drink beer, wine or mixed drinks. The bar tender was a little on the reserved/grouchy side but we didnt let his attitude spoil our fun. We also had dinner at the hotel restaurant one night - which was pretty good - it was a sunday night - so they seemed a little short staffed - just one waiter - But that kid was Awesome - running around and managing about 10 tables all with a smile and great attitude.
The atrium area is beautiful with fountains and trees. My 16 month old loved it so much that he spent most of his time in the hotel walking around there. He was smiling and playing with all the guests and hotel employees all of whom seemed to have a smile and fantastic attitude.
We didnt use the pool - but it seemed small and it was on the side of the hotel next to the parking lot - so not a great location for a pool.
The hotel location is awesome. All attractions are within a 10 mile radius - the outlet mall is a 2 min drive, great restaurants are all within 5 min driving distance and the beach is right across the street. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If possible, try and head to breakfast early because after around 9 AM - the lines at the Omblette station starts to queue up

We had just stayed here the past week and had a pretty good experience. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The free breakfast had varieties to choose. The coffee (Douwe Egbert) served at breakfast was very good. Our room was not luxurious but not bad either. I picked this one due to the proximity to the beach (clear without seaweeds) which is across the street...about a 4-5 min. walk. The location is very close to lots of shops including a Winn-Dixie (2 min drive) and a very nice Publix (5 min drive) away. The only complaint is the older bar tender who does not seem very happy with his job and maybe he did not like the "Life is Good t-shirts" I was wearing.

We have stayed at this hotel more than once and keep returning. A short walk to the beach through a private entrance. The suites are a very nice size. Love the location and the staff are friendly! Complimentary breakfast is great. Great choice!!!
