This is a typical Embassy suites of the '80's which just is not a bad thing. The atrium lobby is maintained beautifully w/ waterfall and the usual multitude of chairs; Along with a nice "warm bar" off to the side and an indoor pool view makes this a great area to relax and spend some time. There was a large carpet stain in living room, but considering the huge room, cleanliness, and rate, it must be forgiven.
People on staff were very nice and helpful; Although a consistent shuttle service would have been nice. The mini indoor pool was insanely cold; however the jacuzzi was great as was as the setting in an all glass enclosure. As with most Embassy Suites, the rate included breakfast is way above average. This place is located in an upscale area and the high end mall across the street makes this hotel a spectacular place to visit. You will have so many dining choices in the upscale mall, that if you stayed a week, you would not be bored with your choices. There is a jogging/bicycle trail real close by as well as 25 night lit tennis courts. Golf close by(wish they had golf packages).
Finally It must be mentioned that the hotels mascot is a parrot that lives in her cage in the lobby. The sign says she is 25 years old. If you are fortunate to arrive during the day, you will be greeted by her.
