I have stayed at a number of Embassy Suites and have grown accustomed to the suite concept of having a gathering/living area separated from the sleeping area by the bathroom. Several aspects of this hotel set it apart from others. While it is close proximity to the Denver airport it is located within a commercial warehousing district which offers relatively few alternatives for local dining unless you have your own transportation. If you utilize the hotel shuttle from the airport expect the hotel dining experience to be only adequate.
Check-in was accompanied with a letter from the manager warning parents of the hazards the hotel presents to unsupervised children and an admonition that, as a business hotel, children should be supervised in their activities. While as a parent I couldn't imagine not supervising my children's activities in a strange hotel; something that should equally apply to the rowdies occupying the bar and whose boisterous noise caused us to keep the door to the bedroom closed to block the sound.
Like many hotels, this one also has a number of banquet rooms for hosting meetings and for increasing revenue. After returning one evening from a dinner outing I found the hotel parking lot over capacity and with no place to park. The hotel staff recommended that we park "wherever" until the meeting adjorned (sometime after my intended bedtime). I hesitate to wonder what the local fire department/emergency services would have done if called upon...
Aside from these issues, the Embassy Suites in Aurora offers the standard cook--to-order breakfast in the morning and the evening Manager's Special (Happy Hour) expected of this chain.
While I am comfortable with the Embassy Suites brand, next time I'm looking for a hotel near the Denver airport I'll be looking for better alternatives.
