I would disagree with anyone who calls this property rundown, unless other rooms were not in the same great shape as ours. We had a view of the port, and it was a treat to awake in the morning and see our cruise ship clearly across the way. I like Embassy's idea of a sink in the main bedroom (giving you 3 sinks in 3 separate places. Also nice that, while my DW was still asleep in the morn, I could go into the living area and watch Sports Center.
The manager's reception: held every night, snacks, decent assortment of drinks (beer, wines, sangria, some mixed, sodas of course). Good breakfast with cooked to order omelettes.
Had a Grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich (excellent) from Gilbert's 17th St Grill, located right behind Embassy. As others have mentioned, department store, dollar store, grocery store, wine store all close by along with other shops and restaurants.More
