This is a fairly new, upscaled property of the traditional Embassy Suite line. The suite set-up was very nice for my 3 day conference stay. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean and quiet at night. The microwave and frig were operating properly and used throughout my stay. The front room phone and one TV remote were not functioning, but there were two of each so no big deal. The hotel was packed due to the convention, but the staff seemed to handle the crowd well both at the front desk and the breakfast area. My only complaint is that the coffee comes out of a machine labeled Nescafe and tastes like instant! It is really bad and needs to be brewed. Also, the scrambled eggs looked both runny and burned at the same time. Other than the eggs and the coffee, breakfast was good.
Happy hour was nice but wine options were limited. Luckily, there were two or three beer options. Snacks were chips, pita, salsa, and hummus.
The restaurant was surprisingly good for a hotel. Three of us enjoyed delicious salads for lunch one day.
The convention center was perfect for our size of conference and I would not hesitate to recommend it. But then there's that coffee issue that really needs to get fixed!
