We spent two nights (a Friday and a Saturday) at this Embassy Suites. It truly is a mixed bag and that bag is filled with loud and boisterous children! It is to be expected, however, that parents would look for accommodations such as an Embassy Suites ... where daily breakfasts come with the room and where you can truly 'jam' lots of children into one room.
This was obviously a weekend of sports tournaments and trips to Disneyland, as children were running everywhere, and most times, unfortunately, without adult direction. The noise level on the main floor was staggering.
However, once into our room (on the sixth floor, thankfully), we had quiet and when we went into our bedroom and closed the door, it was very nice. (Remember, noise travels UP!)
The air conditioning was set quite low ... believe it or not, it was at 58! But at least it worked ... when we were at this very same hotel five years ago, the air did not work and it was awful, as the entire area was in the midst of a horrible heat wave .. did not make for a pleasant stay. But back to this time ....
All in all, we were satisfied ... the rooms are clean, but are in need of some updating, particularly in the bathroom. The bathroom is very small ... be sure to shut the door before sitting down, if you know what I mean. I did like the extra sink in the bedroom ...would have been very difficult without it.
We had two flat screen TVs ... and they worked fine. The blackout shades were nice. All in all, very comfortable. With some upgrading and updating, this hotel could and would be lots 'better' ...
I was very impressed with the staff who worked the breakfast room. Remember I wrote about all the kids? Well, believe me, they were all over the place at breakfast, making messes everywhere, dropping food, dripping food ... and without much adult supervision. It truly was chaos! But the staff went about their business and were all busy cleaning and replacing and doing the very best they could. I commend them for this ... it wasn't easy!
I would recommend this hotel, given the information I have already shared.
