I attended a convention here last week and only had a slight issue with the check-in process, but it was on my company's end, so no fault of the hotel. When I got to my room, I used the digital key for the first time. It worked great, once I figured out how to use it. Pro-tip, you touch the...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a conference she was attending. The hotel has nice amenities and friendly staff. Décor is updated and modern. Our room was clean and comfortable. The beds however are on the firm side. The location of the Hotel is convenient to shopping, downtown area and local restaurants. All a very short drive...

Having both the manger's happy hour and a great breakfast were important factors at this hotel. Not cheapskates, but everyone would gather for the free drinks and it made socializing easier. Having choices of made to order eggs, and omelets was a great treat from the usual cold breakfast buffets. We had a 2 room suite and a ton of...

This hotel is a popular venue for dance conventions and we have been here many times. It is only 30 min from our house, but since the convention competitions sometimes go late into Saturday night and start early Sunday morning, I have, in recent years, just gone ahead and stayed here for the 2 nights of the convention.

Small roaches in room. Staff did not offer to change my room. Kept apologizing. Breakfast was not so good. Cold eggs, burnt oatmeal and empty coffee pots. Had to stand in line at Omelet station for a piece of bacon. A lot of noise downstairs at bar. (Playoffs)

A wonderful choice. Inside and out, attractive and well kept. All the staff personable and attentive. Only complaint was that the free breakfast buffet ended at 9a; not the case at many other Embassy Suites.

I do love the location of this hotel and have stayed there many times. Staff are always friendly and courteous. I think it could be time for a update for this hotel, carpets are stained and some of the room furnishings are torn.

The front desk people were rude. The room was not cleaned all the way. Sofa bed blanket was just thrown on the floor in the closet. No bag for dirty cloths. As a Gold member I stay in quite a few Embassy Suites and they always give me extra water, but not this one. And they charge for parking! No...
