Stayed with my wife and kids for two nites in a standard room. In general, I'm in agreement with most of the reviews preceeding this one. The hotel is nice and generally what you'd expect from an Embassy Suites, though this one was somewhat nicer and also had "casitas" on the property in addition to the usual ES rooms (which are nice and spacious).
However, it appears that the hotel has installed a new type of thermostat in the room in the rooms that has an embedded motion detector. If the motion detector does not sense anyone in the room for about one hour, the air conditioning is shut off. This is presumably to be more energy efficient and I'm all for that. However, the net effect is that the room is usually hot and stuffy and almost never at an ideal, comfortable temperature. If you leave your room for a couple of hours it's hot and stuffy when you get back. Also, the motion sensor is in the living room and thus doesn't detect anything while you're sleeping. We would wake up sweating several times during the night and go over to activate the sensor. This was in late March when the daytime highs were only in the 70s. I couldn't imagine what it would be like when the temps get into the triple digits.
In my opinion, a comfortable environment is one of the key components of a hotel stay. I would not stay in this hotel, even for free, unless the managment removes these thermostats with the motion detectors.
