Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Deerfield Beach Resort
Great place with a sour end.
We stayed at the Embassy Suites the first week in January 2004. We had a delightful room. ocean view is better than I thought. the breakfasts each day were wonderful and very filling. We loved them. the pool and the beach were beautiful and the staff were wonderfully helpful. It was a little irritating with all the extra add-ons, including parking and asking a friend to sit next to us at the beach. but we had been forewarned and were ready. the only downside was the last morning. Our plane left very early. We gathered our luggage and called for the one elevator that went to the parking garage. It would not come. It appeared as if there were some maintenance going on on the top floor and they had held that elevator. After spending about 10 inutes trying to figure out what was going on, the desk finally sent someone to tell us that we couldn't get there from here. We had to carry our luggage across the entire length of the hotel and then back again. No one offered to help. it was a bad way to end a very nice stay.
Went in Jan 2004. This is a great place. The staff is very accomodating and very attentive. The beach is litterally 100 feet away. The pool area is very nice. The hotel provides beach toys. boogie boards, towels and tubes for use at the pool and beach. Breakfast is great. We brought our young children there and it is perfect.
Only downside is that that it is somewhat expensive. Considering parking and tax, its about 280 night. (Its cheaper than getting 2 rooms elsewhere though, if, like us, thats what youd need).
Embassy Suites Deerfield nice, but...
The hotel was very nice & clean . The staff was friendly. Free breakfast was awesome, anything you want or need. Free complimentary drinks from 5:30-7:30pm were excellent too. Not skimpy or bottom shelf.
Beach was nice, though a little dirty. Well , it was actually pretty dirty. Cans, plastic bottles, cigarette butts, wood, bottle caps, old fishing nets and unfortunately some broken glass bottles. I think they could have sent some one down there to pick up each day. They did have a beach combing machine, but it only cut a swath. The only thing I did not like about the hotel (Embassy Suites - Deerfield Beach Florida)was the balcony. Though it did have one, it was way to small too sit on.
Standing room only, no chairs. I think that should be mentioned somewhere. Only ocean facing suites had balconies w/ chairs. Also the 14.00 parking fee was a rip off. You have to have a car there to get around though. And there is no off street parking to speak of. They really should just include it in the room price and not pretend like you have another choice.
Great for family vacation
I just love Embassy Suites for the kids which are now teenagers. The 2nd bathroom was great for teenage girls to have as their own.As a Hilton Honors member we did not have to pay the $14 parking fee. They also upgraded us from cheapest suite to a partial oceanview. A lot more view than one usually gets when touted as "partial oceanview".I have seen bigger breakfast buffetts & managers' receptions but at $112.49/nt. through Embassy website no complaints.Ocean is across a small street but no complaints since it is not a traveled street. Pretty much just hotel use with a few others who turned down side street & it goes no where but around hotel & back out to another side street that takes you back to the main street.Beach was nice & big, nice heated pool, suites were very spacious & clean w/ 2 bathrooms, managers reception was fine w/ Yeungling Lager(one of my favs) on tap, breakfast had plenty plus cooked to order options. We plan on going back again. Especially when in Ft. Lauderdale area, worth the short drive north to get so much for so much cheaper. Also, really didn't hear much noise in the room which is really noice for light sleepers. Well,@ 9-10AM the property next door had lawn maintenance being done but until that it was quiet.Embassy in Ft. Lauderdale is @ 1.5 miles to beach & Doubletree Guest Suites in Ft. Lauderdale is several blocks(nice hotel too) but w/o drinks or breakfast for @ same price.
Believe me - I go down to Florida at least twice a year for the past seven years. I used to always go to the Embassy Suites, but it has gotten too expensive for me now. It is a very, very nice hotel. What I liked the most was that each suite had two bathrooms! (one with a tub the other with a shower) This is something you won't find most places.
The pool area is really nice, and the breakfast they serve each morning is VERY good and can be enjoyed on their outdoor patio by a little waterfall. The only drawback is that you have to cross a tiny street to access the ocean, but who cares. Being at the Embassy Suites makes you feel good because every other hotel and building around looks far inferior.
Parking should be included
Our stay at the hotel was satisfactory. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean (small fridge). The rates included breakfast, free happy hour drinks, beach umbrella/chairs, surf boards, floats, and kayaks for the family which turned out to be a great deal. We were disappointed to discover that parking was not included with our stay and cost an additional $14US/day (a convenience you take for granted).
Also, the room entrance doors and patio doors are far from being sound proof. Every noise from the corridor and exterior was heard loud and clear. Thankfully we stayed during their low season so there was not too much traffic. I would recommend this hotel but would suggest a room facing the ocean rather than the street side.
Loved the beach
The embassy suites of deerfield beach was truly beautiful. As you sit by the pool, the staff comes around with chilled oranges and cold towels for your head. The hotel is right on the beach, and all your beach chairs are included. The reastraunt was not that good, only for their hamburgers. But your only minutes from very good reastraunts and the innercoastal. I give this hotel 2 thumbs up.
We have stayed at this Embassy Suites location on two occasions. It's a great hotel if you want to be near the beach and close to Fort Lauderdale and the Boca Raton area. In May, 2003 we had two suites -- one with an oceanview and one with a city view. It's worth upgrading to the oceanview as the other faces the street. The hotel does not sit directly on the ocean, as there is a small street between the hotel and the beach. I would suggest you have your meals at other restaurants, as theirs was not up to our standards. The cocktail hour was fine, but to get a "decent" drink you need to order beer or wine. The complimentary breakfast is done well and their made-to-order omlets are very good.
Grab a piece of fruit on your way out to keep in your room to snack on!
I recommend this hotel because of its location and will stay there again.
We stayed here in March 2003. My concern was that they did not have our room ready when we arrived. We had to wait 3 hours. We ended up in the restaurant, took a long walk around the property and stayed in the lobby for a while. It was very inconvenient. Otherwise, they serve a decent breakfast buffet, are very family oriented, had a free cocktail hour, clean pool, and are located right near the beach. I wouldn't come here for the food though. Nice for a beach stay.
Phone for take out
We enjoyed the stay at Embassy and the only thing I could really see that needed some attention to was the service in the restaurant. They had one person waiting on the pool side service and also the restaurant part too. Although they tried to be as fast as they could, it was way too much territory for them to cover. I say they need to hire more help, especially during the spring break time when they have a larger crowd to tend too. Enjoyed the complimentary cocktail time in the evenings, but the bartender could have filled the small cups up to the top. A little more liquor in them wouldn't have hurt either, but hey, it was free only if you didn't feel like you had to tip since she left her tips on the counter for all to see that she wanted some tips for those small drinks. But overall, I would recommend the stay at the Embassy and just suggest you order food brought in then at the restaurant, it will get there faster! Oh, what is up with the $3.50 small milkshakes? Do they contain liquor at those prices?

... but honestly it's no different from going to an all inclusive holiday resort. In fact this ship is two or three times the size of a normal "all inclusive" resort with 10 times the facilities.
My day begins with the daily reading from the "Bible in One Year", then breakfast in the buffet, usually scrambled egg, bacon, fruit and yoghurt, followed by the 8.30 Bible study. That starts my day off right.
Then the choices are endless. We live in ...
... that beach rather than going miles to the black people's beach. The house was in a Caribbean plantation style. It was built in the 1920s. There were lots of animals on the walls and big wooden animals from carousels which are now worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. They originally had monkeys but now there are only three. We didn't see any. After Bonnet House we went and got a slice of cheese pizza from an Italian ...
... thru Lummus park, South beach and I couldn't help myself go onto the muscle beach work-out area, with about half a dozen muscle men working out on the various frames. I skipped in (just for a photo shoot mind, with all the beefy men) so I went & posed on the sloping sit up bench, doing all of 3 sit ups and then skipped over to the double arm press bars to do a rolly polly into leg stand over one of the bars. Andy had recorded me instead, when I moaned cos I only wanted to ...
We have already lost two hours, and it's only day two. Got up at 6:30 which is really 4:30 for breakfast. Nothing else was really that important at that hour, so we went back to bed afterward. After 50 miserable attempts at sending ecards I gave up, because it would be easier to throw a bottle overboard with notes in it. We did manage to get up for a port lecture on our stop in Ponta Del Gada. After lunch, a nap was calling. Well the ...
... different waterfowl. Even a gator here and there. As the sun set we rushed to I-95 and zoomed another 200 miles south, but had a very hard time finding affordable lodging. We wanted to stay in Homestead but had to settle for a place 75 miles north of it, here at Deerfield Beach. We paid too much for a ****** bed in a smoking room, but such is life when you don't plan ahead. I'm wondering if I should plan for the next few days, but it all depends on if I can get camping.... So I ...
