... besides, the pizza at the Palazzo had great Yelp! ratings. However, by the time I unloaded the car, the kids were approaching meltdown mode....especially since 2 of the 3 had not napped all day. Bump pizza and walking the strip, we headed across the street from the our hotel room to grab an easy bite at Gordon Biersch and drive the strip after dinner.
Dinner was great...Shannon and I had salads, the kids had pizza and pasta. ...
Woke up in our bellagio suite with Vegas and the mountains out the window still not believing we were staying there. Made our way to the hotel buffet where for $22 we ate every cuisine in the world and all top quality. And drank unlimited cocktails. Smashed back 5 bloody Mary's and margaritas true Vegas style. Completely stuffed and slightly drunk we hit the bellagio pools in 105degree heat. Again absolute luxury, 3 giant pools with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Convention Center Las Vegas
An excellent choice
We held our family reunion (13 rooms) at this hotel the weekend of June 25-27, 2004. Considering that it was a weekend, the hotel gave us what we considered quite a good rate. The staff was very helpful; the complimentary breakfast was varied and excellent; the accommodations were very nice and clean; and the beautiful lobby was a very pleasant place to gather. Some of us also had lunch at the hotel, and found it very good. The only minus is the small indoor pool. However, all members of our family were very pleased, and we feel the hotel and the staff contributed a lot to the success of our reunion. I highly recommend this hotel as a place for any group, family, or individual for their stay in Las Vegas
A Nice Surprise
I was in Las Vegas for business and planned out on flying out 1 day early to sightsee. The Las Vegas Hilton, where I was booked for the 4 day convention, could not give me a room for that day before my convention. I booked at this Embassy Suite. I flew in late on a Friday night. Not realizing there were 2 Embassy Suites, my taxi brought me to the wrong one. An Embassy Suite shuttle driver quickly and friendly drove me the 5 minutes to my correct one. Upon my arrival, I was surprised how beautiful this hotel was. My room was gorgeous, large and clean. The next day, I took the courtesy shuttle to the strip and the driver was outstanding. He told all of us where and when he does pick ups to return us to the Embassy Suite. When I returned at 2pm, to make my switch to the Las Vegas Hilton (I had checked out Embassy in the a.m and they were holding my luggage) they gave me more A+ service. I walked to the bellman and asked for my bags and asked him to call a taxi to drive me to the Las Vegas Hilton. The bellman also did the shuttle van to the strip which was on the hour. He was going to make a pickup at the convention center and then to the strip and offered to drop me off at the Las Vegas Hilton to save me money (Cabs are high in Vegas). How cool is that! Oh, by the way, the complimentary breakfast is outstanding. I liked this hotel better than where my business put me up for 4 days. Stay here...it is outstanding!
Nice Place, Consider Staying Here for a Convention
I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in May 2004. If you are going on vacation then note this hotel is not on the strip, so you may be disappointed. However, if you are going for a convention then it is a great place to stay - Here's why...
1) The standard two room suite at all Embassy Suites is always nice. Plenty of room to do work, etc.
2) This is a clean property that is reasonably new.
3) They have a nice gym. Some free-weight dumbells, a few weight machines, and about 4 cardio machines including a precor elliptical. They could use a water fountain or dispenser in the gym though.
4) The cocktail hour looked nice (I didn't attend) and the free breakfast was above average.
5) It is about a 5 minute walk to the convention center. If you've ever been part of the hour long cab wait at a convention you know how valuable this is.
6) It is very reasonably priced even when the conventions raise a lot of the rates.
7) No casino - Some may view this as a negative, but I liked staying somewhere without the distraction/noise. Besides it isn't hard to find a casino in vegas...
The only complaint I would have is that they charge about $10/day for high speed internet access. I know they need to recoup the investment somehow, but its tough for business travelers to expense these things so if the management reads this review - consider building it into the rate or offering it built into the rate at check in.
Also, when the monorail stop is complete at the convention center you will be about 5 mins away from the stop.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying with you on the 29th of Apr-May 3, of 2004. The reunion
of the USS Bluefish SSN 675 was held at your site.
The staff was excellent especially, Bill who I adopted as an Uncle, Alex, who was always cheerful
As for the service for the reunion we couldn't have asked for better accomodations. The bar staff that did the banquet was so friendly and professional.
The whole organization get a major thumbs up from the Bluefish Association.
Thanks for everything.
One of best stays in Vegas!
One of our favorite places to stay in Vegas - all suites, free full breakfast, free managers reception (alcohol!) daily. The lobby is nice, with a great fountain by Wet Designs (same co. that did Bellagio fountains). Suites are great - nice to be close to everything, but away from smoke and noise of the casinos. Depending on availability, you can pay extra (or get upgrade) to the large balcony suites - semi - private sundeck!
Indoor pool, and outdoor spa - large spa. If you prefer an outdoor pool, consider Embassy Suites Las Vegas (on Swenson) - nice outdoor pool area with waterfall, two spas - great characters cooking breakfast - better arrangement for managers reception with better munchies.
Happy with this choice
The hotel is quiet and clean, the staff is polite and helpful, there is always a clean available table at breakfast. No grapefruits! The ventilation system in the bathroom worked very well. Overall, the hotel is up to its standards.
Close to the convention center
I stayed here for a biz trip last month (March 04) and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are a nice size, and the atrium/lobby is very nice. It is within walking distance of the convention center, but I would say it's close to 1/2 a mile.. even longer if you are at the other end of the conv center like we were!
The hotel does offer a comp shuttle to the conv center, but beware about pick up! They don't promise it and even then you have to go to an inconvenient location. They also offer a free hourly shuttle to the Sahara on the strip, but again no pick up.
The pool is indoor and small, and the "sundeck" is really just a concrete slab with a wall around it - a few chairs and the hot tub.
Don't go here if you are looking to swim and suntan.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and would definitely go back!
Read all the fine prints
Stayed there during New Year's Eve 2004. We booked the room on Orbitz which describes the suite as a "2-room" suite with a living room. When we got there, it turned out to be a one bedroom suite. The staff there said that the living room also count as a room. Because there is a door for the bedroom, it is a 2 room suite. We told them that the description on Orbitz was misleading because it doens't explicit said that the living room is the other room, then they said that they didn't post the description. Called Orbitz who said that Embassy came up with the description. They just bounced back and force on who's responsible while Embassy insisted the description is accurate (Orbitz understood why we felt mislead). Orbitz tried to call their manager to clear things up, but their manager didn't answer. So we ended up staying in a room that is different from what is described. The staff was rude and wasn't very helpful or understanding. At the time we checked out, my friend and I talked about trying this other hotel we heard was good, the staff interrupted our conversation and said "which one? XXX hotel?" and then didn't say anything else. We weren't even talking to her and she is just rude. Other than that the room is pretty clean. Bedroom is a little small. I swear I think the towels aren't clean because when i walked in the bathroom for the first time, the towels felt wet.
Very enjoyable hotel.
The hotel was one of the best that I have ever stayed in. The breakfast is delicious and lunch and dinner are also very enjoyable. The room that I stayed in had a great view of the strip. The staff are very helpful and friendly with whatever you ask them for. The fountains in the lobby are very entertaining and amazing. I would definetly stay here again.
Very good choice
I've stayed at this ES 4 times, most recently 9-11 July. Each stay has always been very satisfying. The breakfast is above average for Embassy Suites. I would not recommend eating dinner at the restaurant. The rooms are quite nice - try for a high floor facing south as the view of the strip will be quite nice. This is a great place to stay for those who don't want the hustle and bustle of staying at the mega hotels on the strip.
