I can't say enough about how much I LOVE this hotel. I passed by the location while attending a convention for Sysco. The aroma of Starbucks filled my senses and it looked beautiful from the outside.
I booked my stay for a conventionlast year and I was so pleased with the service, the staff, the atmosphere and the room was even better! It had all the comforts of home, and I love that I wasn't just in a room with a bed. Having a separate living area and bedroom really makes a difference to me. The hotel was quiet, and the room inviting. I loved how well I slept, the free breakfast, the Starbucks coffee to warm me up on the cool morning, and had no problems with elevators as I read in a previous review.
Heading to my convention was a breeze as the St. Pete Times Forum is right next to the hotel. I reserved for this year well in advance out of excitement to stay here again!
The pool area is lovely. I enjoyed spending my afternoon breaks there. I don't see that it's size was a problem at all. I thought its design was really cool and posted pictures on my Facebook wall. Who needs an Olympic sized pool? The pool is not on ground level so sounds of traffic or noise weren't an annoyance. It is an outdoor pool, which is a perk! I do not like indoor pools when I can bask in the Florida sun with a book.
I just called to confirm my trip for October and the woman took all of my special requests with a cheerful spirit. I am happy knowing my arrival is all set for the Joyce Meyer Conference. I will book here every year to come as they do not dissapoint!
Lastly, I totally respect the responses to posts from the Manager. Many other hotels and resorts do not pay attention to what people are posting (like my recent trip to Orlando). You don't skip a beat Embassy Suites! I am happy to be a HH member! Counting the days to my getaway...
