“No breakfast….No Joy”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The sign says we open at 6:30. No one will explain why they aren't open. We finally found a hostess and asked when will you open. She was indifferent and unhelpful. Had to leave before they got their act together. Boooooooo. Colleagues said they waited and got wilted bacon and stiff pancakes. When you base your reputation on breakfast made to order and there is no one to make your order, you leave unhappy.

On the surface this seems like a nice hotel. I did not have any trouble with the staff as others have commented. At least not until I came down with bed bug bites over my entire body. I was there for 8 nights and by the 5th I started getting small bumbs. By the time I left I had them on my back and arms and then they swelled up all over my body. I immediately called the hotel, but it took several calls before they "took the room out of service". I have lost work and had to go to the dr. The itching is miserable and the silver dollar sized welts on my hands, face and arms make it impossible to meet with clients.
I probably wouldn't have written a review had there not been the bug issue, but besides the horror of that, there was a plumbing issue that knocked all night and kept me up. The food from room service was good, but they would take a good 12 hours or more to pick up my dishes out of the hall, even when I called and requested they be picked up.

This light, airy and modern hotel had good sized suites and was easy to find from the airport. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet (not a full scale version but it still offered plenty of choice) with cooked to order omelettes as well as an evening drinks reception, which are included in the room price. The only downside was the small pool, which doesn't have enough seating. Self parking was easy and it isn't too much of a walk into town with a variety of restaurant options if you feel like a walk. We used it as a base to visit Universal Studios and despite the weekday morning traffic we made the journey in 25 minutes (even less on the way home).

We are a family of 4 with teenage children and the room was comfortable enough including a large bathroom. The fridge and microwave were also useful. There was a pull-out sofa bed too, but we didn't need it. I have stayed at Embassy Suites in Fort Lauderdale previously and this one was even better.

Room Tip: Our 8th floor suite overlooked the atrium and was generally quiet.

Meeting the expectations of an Embassy Suites: nice rooms, nothing spectacular. Fitting the purpose. Staff is friendly and efficient. One really positive exception was one of the bartenders: he was really friendly, original and client focussed. Very close to 134 freeway, which is convenient. Would I stay here agin? Sure, perfect hotel for doing business in the glendale/burbank area

We ended our trip by staying here for 5 nights, originally booking for 4, but arrived early as we opted out of one of our nights at a different place. We were allocated a suite on the top floor, but moved to the 9th floor as we found the air conditioning units on the roof gave an irritating noise, which may not have been a bother for other people. The suites are very comfortable, possibly a little more drawer space would have been welcome as we did have quite a lot of clothes with us. Everything was clean, very comfortable bed, adequate sized bathroom with the best towels we have ever had in the US.
We enjoyed the complimentary drinks each evening and ate at the restaurant afterwards. Breakfast was the usual choice of fruit, cereal, toast and hot buffet, with the addition of a made to order stand which could get busy.
Staff were all courteous, helpful and very friendly, especially when we wanted to move rooms, and made us feel very welcome. Elvis is a gem! The layout was a little unusual, in that some suites overlooked the lobby area, although this is attractive. We found that Glendale was really convenient for many of the places we wanted to visit, Norton Simon Gallery, the Huntington garden and gallery. The Observatory was easily reached, although it was in the cloud cover when we visited. Some of the freeways can be exceedingly busy, but we visited Santa Monica one day and called at the Getty on our way to the airport. All in all, a very pleasant end to our trip, thank you all so much. Would definitely stay here again and recommend highly.

Room Tip: Mountain view on north side, to the left of the lifts on the upper floor may be quieter without air...

We stayed here as a base to spend a week seeing LA. The hotel was great and the fact that the room was a suite gave us more room for our two teenagers. The location was right off the highway so it was easy to get to many of the sites we wanted to visit. The hotel is right down the street from two fabulous malls which gave us options for dining and shopping. We would definitely stay here again if we return to the LA area.

Visited this hotel during spring break 2014. Check-in was very easy and fast. Friendly staff members welcomed us to the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. We did not make the "Managers Reception" so I cannot review that portion. Breakfast was great as with every Embassy Suites "Made to order omelette's etc." Parking is covered and below the hotel and I believe has 3 levels. Parking was $15.00 per day. We would definitely stay at this hotel again if we are back in the area.
