It's hard to beat new hotels, and the Embassy Suites Brier Creek is no exception. When you pull up to the lobby entrance you can tell this isn't the typical 80s-style Embassy Suites. I didn't notice it at the time, but there wasn't the traditional atrium that the older properties have. But there was a very modern feel inside. The lobby included a bar, dining area, coffee shop and lots of seating. My room was a non-suite with a king bed, but it was very modern. There was a 42" flat panel TV mounted on the wall over the desk and it was titled slightly downward to improve the viewing angle from bed. There were 60 or so channels, many in HD including Showtime. The modern feel continued in the bathroom with a back-lit mirror and a glass door walk-in shower with triple head jets (admittedly it took a bit for me to figure out how to work it all). Wi Fi was $9.95/night so I didn't test connectivity or download speed. The hotel is located close to Brier Creeek, a mixed-use complex that features many restaurants. It's about a half-mile walk along an undeveloped stretch of land to the closest restaurants. Conveniently, the hotel shuttle runs every 30 minutes and drops guests off at the restaurant or shop they choose. The morning breakfast was consistent with that of other Embassy Suites properties. My only complaint is that I could hear some loud guests in the room next to mine in the middle of the night. I called the desk to complain and they called next door. It sounded like the noise was coming mostly through the connecting door in the room, perhaps not offering as much insulation as the walls around it. While close to the airport, I didn't find the noise level from flights to be an issue. Overall, a pleasing stay and high marks for the modernization of the chain.
