I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It was a very nice experience. The lobby is magnificent...high ceilings, plush seating, and nice free pastries. The staff was very courteous during check-in.
The room (all suites) was very spacious. I enjoyed the leather sofa and chair. Two TVs, one in the sitting/living room, and one in the bedroom was a nice touch. 70 channels too! However, they were only 27 inch TV's I think. A larger TV or maybe even a flat screen would be nice.
The fitness center was also enjoyable. Nautilus machines and a nice pool and jacuzzi were there.
Note: I satyed there in late March. The staff told me that the hotel's resraurant would open in May/June 2005. So when I stayed there, no room service was available. But that was ok because there were many dining choices right outside the hotel.
The free buffet breakfast was a little on the light side. It consisted of scrambled eggs, a variety of warm breads, cereal, outmeal, juices, and fruit. No meats at all. The free breakfasts served at Embassy Suites beats this offering hands down. However, I attribute the light offering to the fact that the restaurant was still under construction.
Underground parking was free and safe.
I look forward to staying there again when I can check out the restaurant.
