Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Las Vegas
If you want to stay away from the busy strip, but not TOO far away, this is the place to stay. Hourly shuttle to the strip, so no need to rent a car. The pool is beautiful, quiet, and very relaxing. The cook-to-order breakfasts are absolutely fabulous. The hotel is so clean; the suites are large, and the staff is very accomodating and friendly.
Everything you could want
My wife and five year old son and I stayed here for three nights a few weeks ago and had a fantastic holiday. After searching the web for weeks checking out the mega hotels on the strip we opted for this place as it seemed a bit quieter. We were glad we did.
Visits to the famous hotels on the strip were great fun, but it was fantastic to get away from it all to the Embassy Suites where we could relax by the pool in peace and quiet. The free drinks from 1730-1930 was another great touch and made the evening wind down that much faster!
On arrival we were able to park outside the front door and get into our room in under 7 minutes when we checked in at 11am having driven from Phoenix, try that at the Bellagio!
In fact even with the fun and games at Circus Circus and the sights of the "Strip" my sons favourite part of the entire holiday was the breakfast buffett!
On the subject of food tried the lunch buffett at Bellagio to be told that as it was Memorial day it would be $30 per person, no kids discount. So we headed to the Aladdin and had a great meal with 50% off for kids, much better value.
Advice wise having a car in Vegas certainly made life easier, the distances are huge and walking is not easy in that heat. Even walking through the hotels is hard work, think trying to get through Ikea in a hurry, and you'll get the idea! Parking was free in all the hotels and even on Memorial day we easily found parking (usually on the 8th floor!)
Another top tip is the 50's Diner Johnny Rockets 1 minute drive from the hotel, best milk shakes and burgers ever!
Clean and Convenient
Our family of six stayed here for one brief night on our way home from Hawaii. We had stayed at the other Las Vegas Embassy Suites on our way out. Although we really like the Embassy Suites-Convention Center - this hotel was newer and the suite a bit larger. The room was spotless, and the bed fine. We had to miss breakfast to catch our plane, so we were disappointed not to be able to get a freshly made omelette! The hotel is very convenient to the airport - but note that the hotel shuttle doesn't begin until 7:00 (we had to take a private shuttle service.) This Embassy Suites was a bit pricier, but if we were to return to Las Vegas, we would stay here. Great hotel!
Good hotel, great custom hot breakfast, nice rooms, good housekeeping, pleasant, friendly staff....stayed there one night February 10th, 2005....two drawbacks..the double beds are too small for teenagers and adults...depending upon the air traffic, the airplanes landing and taking off can make it miserable for early morning and late at night, however they did subside after midnight.
Comfortable and Quiet
Being away from The Strip was a plus as there was way too much traffic everywhere. This hotel has easy ground level parking and is easy to get in and out of. It was across the street from the UNLV campus and was in a quiet area. Our suite was standard Embassy and the swimming pool was very tropical looking. Our only complaint would be the fairly long breakfast line.
Stayed here for 1 night after returning from the canyon.
What a great hotel. The rooms are large with a kitchenette and small sitting room.
The bathroom was nice and the whole place was exceptionally clean.
The hotel has a great cook to order breakfast and a large pool with hot tub.
The best bit was the manager's reception. From 5.30 to 7.30 free drinks !
Although I can't remember buying many drinks in Vegas this was a nice touch. As we had a car the 5-minute drive to the strip wasn't to bad.
Don't be put off by the name Las Vegas-Airport, as it was not at all noisy.
We also stayed in the Luxor and the Excalibur and to be honest, the embassy suites were just as good if not better. Check out the barman 'Day' (Fonz look-alike). What ever they are paying him is not enough. A very funny bloke from Iran who also makes a mean cocktail.
Would definitely stay here again and we were gutted we had already booked the Excalibur.

What A Great Place To Stay!
Just got back from my first trip to Las Vegas and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay than this Embassy Suites. The hotel is just far away from the Strip to offer a respite from the craziness. Have stayed at many Embassy Suites before, and this one ranks among the best. Everybody on staff was great to us, going out of their way to help us. Check-in and check-out both went smoothly and timely. Room was clean, spacious and quiet. Breakfast was great every morning - what a selection. Also, can't say enough good about Nick, one of the shuttle drivers. He was always very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
Nice Hotel, Loved Elvis and Pricilla!
Great Hotel! Typical Embassy Suites with the big opening in the middle. Free cooked to order breakfast in the morning! And a little lake running through the middle of the lobby. It had two real swans named Elvis and Pricilla! They were beautiful. As for the location, not much around other that the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Embassy does offer a free shuttle that takes you to ballys. All in all a great stay and great value. Remember no casino at this hotel, which sometimes it a good thing! (wink wink)
Suite place to stay!
As frequent visitors to Las Vegas, my husband and I have become used to off-strip suite hotels. This Embassy Suite stands out as one of the best - yes, I agree that the breakfast (free) cooks are cards, and we always enjoy the manager's reception - decent sized bar area, with floorplan that allows for spilling over into large central atrium area with plenty of sofas and chairs, with a better array of nibbles than some other Embassy Suites. The box of goodies and bottled water that are a part of every stay are a nice amenity, too.
This hotel also has a generously sized pool area, with waterfall, and 2 spas. One spas is located a bit away from the pool and if you're lucky, it's fairly private.
The Swenson location is not our favorite, however.
Even for people like us who like to stay away from casino hotels for our Vegas stays, it's a bit away from everything. Also, planes at nearby airport flow a bit low. If traveling to Vegas in the Winter, you might prefer the Embassy Suites Convention Ctr., on Paradise, which has an indoor pool (and quite large outdoor spa). The lobby is great , but manager's reception is better at Swenson.
P.S. When booking this hotel, the actual Hilton/Embassy name for it is Embassy Suites Las Vegas; Paradise Rd. is Embassy Suites Convention Center.
A Good Place T Stay
I stayed at the Embassy Suites/airport.I went with two other family members.and we were so very pleased with the hotel,the accomodations,wonderful breakfast;with the best cooks.the hotel was convienient,and clean and accomodating. It was nice to stay, not in a casino hotel,the Embassy provides shuttle service to the main hotel casinos. The hotel has two hot tubs,and one nice pool. if i went back to vegas,i would stay there again.

... were less vibrant, the canyon was as spectacular as ever! As we carried on to Las Vegas, we hit Route 66! Going to a petrol station on Route 66 proved to be a mistake - it was very expensive! Obviously you have to pay for the honour! ;-) Later on in the day, we arrived at the Hoover Dam - a truly awe-inspiring sight! Great to see all those old Volvos driving over the dam wall!

The former town and it's people are gone but the spirit of its early glory can be felt today-the colorful local mountains, the old dump, the hundreds of shafts and tunnels are here. The miles of honeycombed underground working through solid rock, though mostly inaccessible at the present, are in evidence today.

We did have a very pleasant rest at the Venetian, with margaritas along the canal. The restaurant was not crowded (what a nice change), and it was cool. Since the hyper-reality interior feels like twilight in an Italianate city, it was calming. We tried to count the number of gondoliers ...
