Embassy Suites Downtown or Hotel Lucia?

I can't decide which one! They both have good reviews. Obviously, on TA, Embassy Suites is more popular, but the Hotel Lucia looks like a really cool place to stay. Any advice?

I would have no problem choosing the Lucia over the Embassy Suites. It is smack dab in the middle of downtown, convenient to everything and it is a beautiful little hotel..with Typhoon on Broadway, a very good Thai restaurant, downstairs :)

I vote the Lucia :)

* not that there is anything wrong with the Embassy Suites, the Lucia is just so much nicer :)

I have to say, I have no preference...but this thread brought up a memory.

The Embassy Suites location used to be a government building (in the late 70's.)

I was in college and my father and I went there to have our taxes done...yes the IRS used to actually perform this task.

Well, the lobby of the building had this HUGE myrtlewood table in the center. My fathers brother owned a myrtlewood shop. Well, I had to know, so on the floor I went, crawling underneath to see what I could see. Sho 'nough, his sticker was on the underbelly.

I have no clue where that table is today.....I hope it has a great home. It would have to be a commercial building as it was, probably, 4-5 feet wide.

Are you ok with a small room? If so, then I'd pick the Lucia--much better location, IMO and yes, it's a cool place ;-).

I haven't stayed at the Lucia since it was called the Imperial, but have heard that the rooms are smallish. I've stayed at Embassy Suites a couple of times and loved it. The rooms are, well, suites.

I like the Embassy Suites. Elegant rooms, good location and great value with breakfast included.
