Fantastic birthday getaway

Aside from the mattress and not having parking available, this hotel was in the perfect location and the free breakfast was awesome!

Nice location for a guys weekend getaway

As usual, the Embassy Suites puts on a good show. When you include the managers reception and the breakfast, this hotel is worth the money if you are in need of a suite. On this trip there were three guys, all who needed a separate bed. I ended up on the couch and enjoyed it. The front desk delivered a comforter and I slept comfortably on the couch. My friends said the beds were comfy also. PRO's- Location on the bay, Walking distance to Seaport Village and the Midway museum, good service, free alcohol in the evening, free full breakfast (even made to order omelets if you desire), and a combination Baskin Robbins and Dunkin Donuts attached to the hotel. CON's- Street parking is almost non-existent, Hotel Valet Parking is $40 a night (it does have in and out privileges, but there is also a customary tip each time you retrieve and park.)

We had a wonderful experience. It is a great location for walking to local destinations: Gaslamp, shopping, Ferry ride to Coronado and Sea Port Village. Nice breakfast and happy hour. I wish it had free internet and parking included.

Great hotel, great value

I stayed at the embassy suites for 4 nights for a business trip. The hotel and room upkeep were great. The additional amenities of breakfast and happy hour were great bonuses. What I thought really put the finishing touches on the stay was the staff. Very courteous and friendly and willing to help when needed. The only downside to the hotel is lack of free wifi in rooms. You can get free wifi in the large lobby where thre are plenty of places to sit, but in the room would have been nice.

Sister Getaway

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, great amenities. Evening reception with complimentary drinks is a great perk when just arriving from out if town. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was good, great offerings and took away the time of having to find or drive somewhere for breakfast. Only drawback was the $39 fee for valet. Found this to be a little outrageous.
