Really Nice Stay, Good Value
We just spent a long winter weekend at the Embassy Suites hotel and have very good things to say. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean. We have two young children and appreciated being able to put them in another room on the sofa bed. Other pluses--an indoor pool (we had bad weather), nice breakfast included for all (pancakes, eggs--not just Continental stuff) and free drinks (wine, soda, etc.) each evening at the manager's reception. We paid $89/night, which seemed very reasonable with the meal included. We will stay there again if we go back.
We had a great stay at the Embassy Suites! We walked in at around 9:00 pm without a reservation since we were only staying for 1 night in late december and had no problem getting a room. ( it may just have been the time of year) The front desk staff was very nice and helpful, and toured us around the lobby, showing us where the pool, elevator, breakfast, etc. were. The lobby is very nice. It's a large atrium with lots of seating and a peaceful waterfall. The room was very nice. I usually don't like these all-suite type properties because the rooms are usually layed out awkwardly and you end up having an almost smaller room than usual. This one was fine. The bed spreads, couch, chairs, and bathroom appeared to be brand new. The only only thing that looked old was the carpet and the built-in armoire/kitchen/tv cabinet area. The breakfast was very good with things like omelets, pancakes, hash browns, bacon, and all the other things you get at normal continental breakfasts. The only problem with this hotel is its location. It's sort of hard to access because it is behind the k-mart. Most of the rooms have really bad views.
Good place to stay in Williamsburg
Service at this hotel was excellent. We requested a crib in the room and it was already set up when we arrived. Service at the complimentary breakfast was also good. This hotel has an indoor pool which was nice to have during our visit in December. The rooms were adequate - not huge with just enough room to move around. It appears that the sofa and chair had just been redone with new fabric. The bed was comfortable and not lumpy. There were a couple of flaws in the room - a tear in the carpet and a huge rust stain on the ceiling of the bathroom. The bathroom was clean but looked a little old. All told, it was a good choice. Not luxurious but not budget - a good middle choice.
Noisiest place I've EVER stayed!
My family spent four nights at this hotel in late March, 2003. It was THE noisiest place I've ever stayed- bar none (and this INCLUDES numerous stays at various hotels in New Orleans' French Quarter!).
There were BUSLOADS of teen-agers there, on field trips, in cheer-leading competitions, etc. One evening, it was SO noisy that we finally decided to contact Security. The only problem with that plan was that the Security Guard was out in the hall-way outside our door, chatting it up with the cheer-leaders that we were planning to report for being so loud!Unless you're a teen-ager yourself, or fond of noise, SKIP THIS PLACE!!(Further, we found the staff for the breakfast area to ALL be absolutely SURLY....but, then, maybe they were also tired of the noise of the zillions of teen-agers!)
Best weekend the 4 couples have had since our last visit to the Williamsburg Embassy. The staff was the best.
Embassy Suites, Williamsburg
Stayed at Embassy Suites from August 26-30. Overall very good experience at this hotel. The first room we checked into overlooked the pool area and was noisy so we asked for a change of room. Second room was fine but somehow the desk clerk didn't enter that we moved into the computer and we didn't have maid service for 1 1/2 days until I asked what was wrong. They were very apologetic and comped us for one day's stay which was fair enough for me. Hotel had a nice manager's reception in evening with free drinks and some kids acitivities. Price included breakfast buffet in morning with some cooked to order items. Very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country. Overall, we were happy with the experience and would use Embassy Suites again.
Love the embassy suites
just returned from five days in williamsburg va.We stayed at the embassy suites and had a great time.The hotel was as well run as any I have ever stay in.From the first moment at the front desk all the way through to the wait staff they were first class.I encourge all to sample this fine hotel and enjoy real customer service and courtesy.The fresh cooked breakfast served by first class kitchen staff was especially pleasing.Too many examples to mention.Stay and enjoy.
The BEST service!
Just returned recently from Williamsburg and Embassy Suites was GREAT! The staff made my stay perfect. They were all very outgoing,helpful and polite. The breakfast each morning was awsome. They had eggs,sausage,bacon,bagels,toast,home made omlets & pancakes, muffins,danishes and so on. We saved a good amount of money just on breakfast alone. And since it was a large breakfast we ended up not having to eat somewhere for lunch. Many dollars saved just from the breakfast daily. The room was ok. Needed to be updated but was clean. The pool was small but my kids enjoyed it which was great. In the evening they gave us drink cards for free drinks between 5:30-7:30. You could get as many cards as you wanted each night. They also had some sort of snack set up in the lobby as well as coffee 24 hrs. One evening they had a clown doing face painting and balloons. This hotel is definitely GREAT for families!! I will be going back again.............
Great place, hard to knock it
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Embassy Suites in June 2000. It is a very nice property -- clean spacious rooms, attractive hotel, friendly staff. You're right near all of the attractions. The rate I paid was a little high compared to the other places we've stayed at in Williamsburg, and that's really the only complaint I have. But quality does come with a price, and this place was tough to beat. Check prices at the Radisson Williamsburg, which is comparable in quality to the Embassy Suites. Overall, if you can find a good rate, the Embassy Suites Williamsburg is well worth it and you won't be disappointed.
Nicest staff I have ever encountered
From the moment we arrived, the staff of this hotel, was the friendliest, most efficent and interested in helping, of any I have ever encountered. The young woman who checked me in walked with me to the center of the lobby to point out all the pertinent locations, such as pool, execerise room, elevators and breakfast buffet and bar. Every staff person we encountered, said hello, inquired about our trip and the services we were receiving and wished us well. The hotel was fully booked and yet they handled the crowds and the buffet breakfast wonderfully, the room was great. It really was an amazing experience.

It was probably about 1 or 1:30 p.m. when we were there but the waves were crashing over the road and shopkeepers were already preparing sandbags for high tide.
