    Great location! Walking distance to almost everything. Had an excellent breakfast and loved the free happy hour every evening.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Great location, fair price compared to similar downtown hotels

    Overcrowded at peak season; long lines for elevators, breakfast, and complimentary happy hour

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Concierge gave us inaccurate info or didn't know answers to simple questions (ie transportation options to the museums).

  • Family with children

    Great location, good bar and breakfast

  • Older travelers

    We both thought all staff were friendly, helpful and genuine.

    The electronic keys were 'fussy' and we often spent a few minutes trying to get into our room.

  • Single
    9.2

    The room was very spacious. I also liked that they offered complimentary food during the evening and for breakfast.

    Some of the outlets and the bathtub faucet were faulty.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    The hotel is in excellent location and the service is excellent.

    The price of the room dropped %40 after i did the booking in less than 12 hours, i have contacted embassy suits and Booked.net, however unfortunately the price did not change and i had to pay $507 instead of &299 without taxes.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The breakfast, pool and hot tub were all great. Plus very nice rooms.

    There weren't any phone books in the room, and for out of town people, this made it difficult to know how to get around and where to go.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Always at E. Suites....2-room suites & free bkfast included! Nice, clean hotel.

    Too bad with construction being done in the middle of lobby, but thats temporary. Staff not overly friendly, one male employee could barely offer the most minimal information-at front desk!

    Location

    Look behind the tv console in the room...t has not been vacumed for a long time...that was a bit disappointing

  • Couple
    8.8

    The room was big and very clean. The hotel was well located. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Although the breakfast was very good, queuing to get it took a bit too long.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Very family oriented, great breakfast in the morning, great room, and great location!

  • Single
    7.8

    The free Evening reception with drinks and snacks plus friendly staff is absolutely unique and great ! The Breakfast ( included) is "worldclass".

    all o.k. The rooms could maybe use a "fresh-up" soon.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The location is absolutely marvelous; the general staff is helpful and the cleaning staff is extremely helpful and accomodating. Breakfast was delicious and fast but you had to be early.

    There was nothing we did not like, except maybe the long lines for the manager's reception. And oh yes, there was something else: since every room is equiped with a kitchen, it would be nice to stack the cabinets with a few plates and cuttlery.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Staff super nice

    Lines for breakfast n drinks but breakfast spread was huge!
