We recently visited the area to attend a show at the Uptown Theater and decided to try out Embassy Suites - Plaza.
Our check in at around 6 pm was quick and painless.
The Manager's Reception with 2 complimentary drinks apiece was appreciated.
Being within walking distance to the venue (15-20 minutes each way) was great.
The suite was comfy! Plenty of room to spread out, and the AC did a wonderful job at keeping the room a brisk 62 degrees. Slept like babies on the King Sized bed.
We read reviews of this hotel prior to booking, and two of our "Selling Points" were not available. Bit of a bummer there.
We had planned on having access to both 24 hour room service and a 24 hour swimming pool. Both of us being night owls and figuring we might like to wind down after the show, we totally planned on using both. To our disappointment, however, both were closed at midnight (Friday). The vending machines in the place sold only drinks. We ended up having to leave a second time to find something to cure the munchies. Joe's Pizza, a few blocks away, took care of that. Had we known, though, that room service would be unavailable, we would have brought something for the in-room fridge.
Breakfast was good. The made-to-order omelet was tasty, and the lines were not as bad as most reviewers made them out to be. Maybe we just got lucky and arrived before the crowd.
The noon checkout time was a plus for us. After our breakfast we went back to the room for another couple hours sleep.
Overall experience was a good one, however, our search for a hotel with 24 hour pool and 24 room service continues.
