We are frequent visitors to Embassy Suites as we travel with our kids who LOVE having an indoor pool. I am torn in this review as this property was the nicest of any Embassy Suites we have stayed at to date. It has a large, open, beautiful lobby and well-kempt rooms. It seemed remarkably larger and in better shape than their East Coast properties. As was pointed out to me, land and labor is probably a lot less expensive in Texas than Boston.
That being said why was the pool half the size of the other Embassy Suites we have stayed in? It was packed with kids and a bit scary at times. There was little to no parental supervision and as expected, no Embassy Suites supervision. Teenagers were jumping into a packed pool full of children - sometimes quite young children. Our son was knocked under when a teen fell off his friends' shoulders and landed on him. That experience really soured an otherwise lovely stay.
Would I stay here again? Probably, but I'd go swimming with the kids before breakfast when all the teens were still in bed!
