“Great weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Big rooms, great breakfast (cooked to order), and drinks at night. Staff was great, pool was extremely warm, only negative - hot tub jets barely worked. It costs a little more but the breakfast easily makes up for it. Also a great location on HWY 111, close to many golf courses.

We have stayed here twice and always feel like we are getting an amazing value for our dollar. Cliff Notes: big, clean rooms, super comfortable beds, Manager's reception features free drinks every night, free hot breakfast made to order, super friendly staff, beautiful hotel. This is my favorite place to stay in the desert.

staff is amazing, complimentary food and happy hour was excellent. They allow pets and the mini suites were perfect for the stay. Big grassy area to walk them. The only issue was with the musty pet smell, wish for the pet cleaning fee the carpet was shampooed. The bathroom was very clean and they use Crabtree and Evelyn soap that was wonderful.

I have stayed at several Embassy Suites and have always been quite happy with them. That's why I was so surprised with the rather "meh" quality here.

As soon as we entered our room we could tell the quality of cleaning is sub par. The room had a musty, stale smell that indicates the carpets aren't cleaned very often. In the bathroom the hand towel lying next to the sink was used (had makeup on it and wasn't folded), and the bottle of hand lotion was only half full. Yuck.

The room itself is ok, though the furniture is not very comfortable. Especially the sofa bed. Now, because my wife is an insomniac I often sleep on the pull out beds and mostly they are reasonably comfortable. Not thus one. It was hard and lumpy. The blanket that is provided was very stiff and scratchy. Ugh.

Normally I am pretty easy to please. I don't complain a lot, but this place definitely needs to improve its upkeep. I gave it 3 stars instead of 2 primarily because the place was otherwise decent, but compared to the other Embassy Suites I have stayed, it's a solid 2.

Just stayed at Palm Desert Embassy Suites for 5 days, great location, great service, great complimentary breakfast and happy hours at a terrific price. While property is a little older, it is well-maintained and I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I would recommend Embassy Suites to everyone. We were so relaxed at this place - alot of peace and quiet. We had a room on the bottom floor -- everything from the pool, restaurant, reading area, front desk, breakfast area, evening social area, laundry room, workout room, -- were just all within arms reach. We felt so safe there with the iron doors in which we needed our room card to get in. We will be coming back next Jan. for a couple of weeks.

The room was great, very clean and the two room set up was great for our family. The continental breakfast was worth waking up early for. The reservationist at the front desk was not friendly and did not extend any additional services. Overall it was a great stay!
