I stayed at the Embassy Suites for one evening during a recent business trip. My company has an office located nearby, and this was a convenient location.
The check-in was quick and easy, although the desk clerk noted that there are sometimes issues with the key cards, so he gave me two cards. Sure enough, when I got to my room, neither card worked. I travel a lot, and this happens fairly frequently, so not a big deal. It does seem like they're aware of the problem and maybe they'll update the locks soon.
The room was a fairly typical king bed ES room. However, there was a sink in the bedroom area (in addition to the wetbar outside the bathroom and the sink in the bathroom). I thought this was a nice touch if there were a few people traveling together. I had free internet access since I am a Gold member. It was a little bit slow.
The bed was very comfy and the room was quite clean. The only odd note was that there was one very small soap dish in the shower stall. Not nearly enough space for a lady to put her shampoo, conditioner, razor, and soap.
I was glad to see that the fitness center was open 24/7, as I had a very early day. I was in the workout room by 4:15 a.m. There were 2 elipticals, a couple of treadmills, a bike and assorted free weights. The eliptical and bike were in great shape. There were plenty of cups, towels, water, and sanitizing wipes. Thank you for such a nice gym open 24/7!
I was at breakfast at 6:05, and didn't have to wait for my omlette. The chef was very friendly. There was a nice supply of fresh pastries and fruit.
I also had dinner at the Omaha Steakhouse the prior evening. I had the shrimp bisque and the filet. The food was tasty and the service was pretty good. Nothing especially memorable, though.
All in all, I definitely recommend the hotel if you need easy access to I-77 or the airport.
