This is a typical embassy suite at least in my experience with 2 exceptions. On the positive side the rooms are large, clean and quiet. The staff was great and the breakfast was very good, especially considering its free. It's in a good location with shopping and restaurants all around. The lobby was bring remodeled while I was there, but it was managed well and wasn't obtrusive. On the down side was the parking and the Internet access. I drive a Ford truck and parking it was challenging. The spaces are very small and the lot is usually full. In light of the fact that thy charge $18.00 a day to park I think they need to accommodate the guests better. When you enter
the hotel property you have to go thru the porte-cache at the main entry. This operation is a complete circus. Cars, busses and people milling around to the point it's almost impossible to get thru. As far as the Internet is concerned, after a while I gave up. I'm a Hilton Honors member so I tried accessing that way but never could get past the home screen. I switched to AT&T wifi but that was hit and miss and I had to pay for it. It kept dropping out.
I think my biggest complaint is that if you are going to charge for a service, such as parking and internet, please make sure they work.
