    Concierge gave us inaccurate info or didn't know answers to simple questions (ie transportation options to the museums).

    We both thought all staff were friendly, helpful and genuine.

    The electronic keys were 'fussy' and we often spent a few minutes trying to get into our room.

    The room was very spacious. I also liked that they offered complimentary food during the evening and for breakfast.

    Some of the outlets and the bathtub faucet were faulty.

    The hotel is in excellent location and the service is excellent.

    The price of the room dropped %40 after i did the booking in less than 12 hours, i have contacted embassy suits and Booked.net, however unfortunately the price did not change and i had to pay $507 instead of &299 without taxes.

    The breakfast, pool and hot tub were all great. Plus very nice rooms.

    There weren't any phone books in the room, and for out of town people, this made it difficult to know how to get around and where to go.

    Always at E. Suites....2-room suites & free bkfast included! Nice, clean hotel.

    Too bad with construction being done in the middle of lobby, but thats temporary. Staff not overly friendly, one male employee could barely offer the most minimal information-at front desk!

    The room was big and very clean. The hotel was well located. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Although the breakfast was very good, queuing to get it took a bit too long.

    The free Evening reception with drinks and snacks plus friendly staff is absolutely unique and great ! The Breakfast ( included) is "worldclass".

    all o.k. The rooms could maybe use a "fresh-up" soon.

    The location is absolutely marvelous; the general staff is helpful and the cleaning staff is extremely helpful and accomodating. Breakfast was delicious and fast but you had to be early.

    There was nothing we did not like, except maybe the long lines for the manager's reception. And oh yes, there was something else: since every room is equiped with a kitchen, it would be nice to stack the cabinets with a few plates and cuttlery.
