Overall, I found the hotel to be a good experience, but perhaps a bit dated. The room was comfortable, and having the extra "living room" was useful for networking with colleagues at my library conference. I was rather put off by not having an actual curtain between the hallway and the "living room" in the suite. There was only a gauzy "privacy curtain." I also found that my door slammed closed, which was unsettling.
Having not stayed at an Embassy Suites before, I was overwhelmed by the Manager's Reception. While unlimited drinks is pretty awesome, I must admit being rather hung over for most of the conference. The complimentary food during the reception and the complimentary breakfast were both great. It would have been helpful to know that there was an available menu during the reception, as I didn't find that out until the second night. It was much cheaper than Ruth's Chris.
I found both the hotel staff and the Ruth's Chris/bar tending staff to be knowledgeable and helpful.
The only real complaint I have was that it was very difficult to get around the city from the hotel since I was there while the city was setting up for Panoply, but that's not really the hotel's fault.
