The stay was OK. We could not take advantage of the managers reception because it did not start until 5 on a Saturday, . we already had dinner plans for 530!

Great hotel and location. You have to pay for WiFi and parking which is not ideal. Also, the business center wouldn’t print my documents, so I had to search out a new pay to take care of that.

Not a place for kids.
It was freezing at our house. So to have a mini get away we went to the Embassy. The room says sleeps 6 people. The beds were so small we were on top of each other. The pool water was freezing. So our kids were bored. They had no hot tub. We played games in the dinning area. It was freezing. We had to wear coats. The best part was the free booze from 5:30-7:30.

Nothing over the top, but no complaints
The rooms were wonderful. Great beds, and pillows. Breakfast was just okay, nothing great but not the worst ever. Happy hour drinks were wonderful, snacks were okay.

Great Value
Room was large with a separate sitting area and bedroom. Nice kitchen area. Everything was very clean. Overall, a great value.
