    The lobby staffs were almost nice. I chose this hotel , because my son's university was near. The pool and jim were good. The hotel was really old, but it was pleasant and the room was big.

    Embassy Suites is our favorite hotel. The all suites and breakfasts are our main reason for choosing Embassy Suites. Where ever we travel we make sure there is an Embassy Suites available for our stay.

    Not particularly fond of the rate for parking. This is not necessary and is over rated for the area.

    Superb

    I enjoyed the spacious rooms. It was nice to have a living area AND a bedroom. I also loved the pillows on the bed. Also, the free breakfast was really delicious.

    The server we had in the bar/restaurant wasn't very attentive. One of my co-workers ended up eating cold ravioli because he didn't check on her after the food came. That's my only complaint about my stay though!

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly. Loved the fish! Bed was comfy and TVs in both rooms were nice. Internet and snacks were worth the upgrade to premium. They were very generous with the drinks during happy hour!

    Could have been cleaner, especially the bathroom. If you take away three used towels, please replace with three towels! Free breakfast is great but it was so crowded you couldn't get a seat. As a single mom traveling with an autistic 4 year old, I found this to to be almost impossible to navigate and so had to basically skip breakfast since there was no one to help. Restaurant was way too expensive for what you get. I don't mind paying for parking but the structure has no elevators. This was not posted so again, for those traveling with small children, a huge inconvenience to find this out when you are three levels up. Desk staff neglected to tell me how to access the wi-fi and snacks that came with the premium room - no apologies for neglecting to give me the codes, then thy gave me a code that didn't work, and then when I got a code that worked I wasted two entries on an item that had run out because the machine had not registered that it was out. They were very understaffed and my room was not ready for check in even at 4:30. A breakfast tray sat in the hall for two days. The guy who refilled the snack machine said he was also the shuttle driver and bellman!

    Fabulous

    Beautiful building and rooms. Staff seemed alert and well educated.

    Location is a pain, especially in CA! In addition, cost is still too high for families on low discretionary incomes these days...I am an experienced traveler...over 100 countries!

    Pool, friendly staff

    We had 2 vehicles. Valeted one car for one day, then self parked in a garage. However, we were charged for valet for two days. Self park $25. Valet $35. So only $10 difference...didn't request for correction as we had already checked out and received the receipt via email. This was our only complaint, but everything else was great.

    Very good

    The room was a good size. Staff was amazingly attentive. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was the best value.

    Room wasn't ready. Walked into a dirty room. Got an upgrade of wi-fi and snacks. We weren't there for the wi-fi and the snacks were just average. Bathroom had no vents. Evening reception was appetizers served in paper containers. The pool was cold and had screaming kids after 10pm. Value wasn't what I expected overall.

    Breakfast was easy with the kids

    Found a needle in the carpet and my 8mo nearly chocked on a sports water bottle cap that she found in the corner of the room . Also the place was under roof construction .

    Fabulous

    Overall great service from front desk, apart from my failed package delivery. The valet was outstanding, even offering to leave my car out front when I had to run back in with my children for just an hour. Amazing service in restaurant and bar with very nice happy hour and breakfast buffet.

    Front desk refused to bring a small package up to me, even after I explained I had two young children with me that I would have to carry downstairs. once I arrived, another customer was thanking them for bringing them a package . Perhaps a bit of bias towards those traveling with children? Maid service to the room was also not ideal. They did not arrive until after 4 PM all seven days of our stay , even after I called and requested they come while we were out of the room. When they did come, they consistently failed to take away room service dishes and I had to make another phone call to remedy it
