I don't know what others are paying but corporate rate of $145 is just too good for the level of accommodation you receive from this hotel. Free parking, shuttle, internet, breakfast and evening reception. Extremely friendly staff (for the most part except the two taller bellmen), clean rooms, good facilities, decent location. Honestly there isn't much more you could ask for.
To elaborate, the shuttle will take you to say about a 3 mile radius, which would include just east of Beltway 8, Memorial City Mall, CityCenter, etc. Internet speed is decent. Breakfast is awesome, has everything plus cooked to order warm egg/omelet. A breakfast like this at a full service hotel would cost at a minimum $12. Evening reception food item is very limited, but still a good atmosphere for a quick mingle.
On the room side, I honestly don't find the highway side noisy but would advise staying on the east side away from the construction of the building nearby. Although that's very minor, either. It's never woken me up, just a bit noisy when you are awake in your room during the day. I don't find the corner suites with the floor to ceilings any amazing and would not go out of my way to stay in them at all. I'll have to try the back side during my next stay.
To conclude, a lot of times, it really truly is the more you pay, the less you get. I feel this way especially in the hotel and restaurant industry. This Embassy Suites can almost be singled out as an exception, highly recommend.
