We were picked up at the airport by Ed, one of the gentlemen that drives the shuttle. Ed is pleasant, kind, helpful and a great conversationalist. He's a terrific ambassador for the hotel and surrounding area. Ed drove us back to the hotel and reminded us that Happy Hour was that evening (free drinks and snacks), compliments of the management. He also helped us arrange transportation to our cruise for the next morning.
We went up to our room and it was awesome. The rooms overlook the main atrium area. We were on the sixth floor. We had a sitting area with tv, couch, chair and desk. We also had an adjoining room with two beds. The washroom was fine, but the toilet area was a bit tight (off to the side). Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soaps were available - very nice indeed! The washroom was clean and so was the room. In fact, this room was a suite (hence, the name - Embassy Suites). The bedroom area was roomy enough with another flatscreen t.v. The only complaint was that the beds were not quite as firm as what we are accustomed to.
Later that afternoon, the shuttle driver, Ed, who was still on duty, drove us over to a local restaurant that we wanted to try. There was no charge for this service. The shuttle also picked us up when we were done. How can you beat that?
We went to the free drink/snack Happy Hour. We had two complimentary rum and cokes (only limit was that you couldn't order more than two drinks at once). They had snacks like chips and dip, goldfish crackers, animal crackers and a party mix (similar to Bits and Bites). We enjoyed chatting by the lovely fountain.
The next day, we were treated to complimentary breakfast. It was served in the main atrium. There was ample seating, and although it was busy, we had a super breakfast. They had so many choices, like cake, danish, bagels, toast, an omelette station, fresh fruit, cereal, juice, hot drinks, scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon, etc. It was included in the cost of our room, which was about $139.00.
In closing, this hotel is excellent value for the money. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Congratulations to Embassy Suites for the excellent service and hospitality.
