I have been a Marriott Rewards member since the program started and have stayed hundreds of nights in every level of Marriott properties. Last night, my stay was so miserable at this particular Embassy Suites that I will likely consider other options.

Average experience. Beds, linens and pillows low quality. Other hotel locations have been great and was somewhat disappointed upon entering the room. This was a 13th Birthday celebration for my daughter

Rooms were very dated and the quality of air was terrible. Smelled musty with mold growing on the ceiling and in the bathroom. Housekeeping was slow and not efficient. Staff was excellent though, couldn't have been more accommodating!
