Today my mom's dog died. The puppy - Sassy - a five-year-old Golden Retriever was clearly her favorite companion. Neither I nor my mom's husband Bill could compete with her total disregard for personal boundaries, constant need for attention, endless energy, and absolute joy whenever Mom was around. What she lacked in brains (she ...

... remain in place. According to my professor who is traveling up the Malay peninsula and meeting us in Thailand, this is nothing to worry about. From what he has seen, the protests have been peaceful. As long as we as Americans do not participate in demonstrations and stay clear of any protest, we should be fine. I wasn't planning on becoming a Thai activist, so I'm not too worried!

Well, that's all for now! You'll be hearing from me next in Thailand!

Just in the Nick of Time

This morning I almost missed my flight, but just in the nick of time I was able to board the plane headed for Chicago. I had not planned on the blinding snow that impeded our travel to Minneapolis. Rushing to the check in counter with only 24 minutes to spare I was told that I could not board the plane and that next flight with the airline would ...

    Bottom of the Embassy Suites Barrel

    from

    I'm a devoted Embassy Suites customer and was very disappointed in this hotel.

    Very Disapointed

    from

    We live locally and just wanted a fun weekend trip downtown. We were felt confident we could trust the embassy suite as we had kids and wanted a free breakfast and a pool.

    Great Experience

    from

    My family and I were in town for the March Madness playoffs. My parents and I were unable to stay with the rest of the clan at the "preferred" hotel and my sister booked us here because it was close to the location of the playoffs. We arrived at 2 AM and were greeted by a smiling staff and given excellent service. Without being asked, they moved our rooms around and I ended up with a fabulous corner room that was bigger than my first home (no extra charge). It was spectacular! The complimentary breakfast was first rate. They need to add a couple of stations exclusively for coffee so you can drink your cup of Joe while you wait in line for you fresh fruit, hot waffles and sizzling bacon. My sisters came by and were complaining how their room was smaller than my sitting room, their hotel's breakfast was inedible and their hallway carpet had ripples that kept tripping everyone. While we lost in the first round, but had to stay the weekend, the staff did everything possible to give us ideas on how to spend our time and made great recommendations. We had a fabulous time in spIte of the loss. As for the parking, we used cabs so I cannot comment. As for the street entrance it is a bit odd but once the elevator doors open onto the lobby it is tropical and lovely.

    Horrible Embassy Suites Hotel

    from

    Parking at this hotel is pathetic. You can expect to get a door ding as there is very little room between cars.

    The worst ever

    from

    Among the things that made this stay absolutely intolerable are:

    Recommend this hotel

    from

    We really enjoyed our stay (3 nights Sept/Oct 2005) at the Embassy Suites in Minneapolis. Our rooms were clean and very spacious. The daily breakfast and happy hour was very good and above our expectations. Location was good - only a couple of blocks from the light rail, couple of blocks to the shopping area and a couple of blocks to the Metrodome. We didn't have a car so we walked / bused around town and to St Paul. Fitness center was nice for a workout one day. We did not use the pool or hot tub. There is a convenience store at the street level. Nobody in my group said one negative thing about the hotel during the entire visit. We would definitely stay at this hotel again - and recommend it to our friends.

    Unhappy beginning but happy ending

    from

    I stayed here in early August for a large conference. I paid for a 2 bedroom suites well in advance using internet direct rate. The rate was excellent for a 2 bedroom suites. But not so quick, while I was checking in at the hotel, the representive told me that I reserved a 2-room suites with one bedroom and one living room with a pollout sofa bed. I told her that what I reserved was a two bedrooms suite but not 2-room suite and showed her my reservation sheet I brought with me (you should always do that). I also told her that I even called hotel after I made reservation to confirm what a two-bedroom suite was look like. I was told on the phone that two-bedroom suite was two seperated bedrooms (one with double queen beds and one with king bed) seperated by a living room. But she kept telling me that there was no two-bedroom suite that fits the description I told her. And then she pointed to the resevation sheet that room type is king bed room. She tried really hard to convince me that what I reserved was 2-room suite with one king bedroom. She even offered me to switch to a two-queen bed room so that my colleaque and I could sleep in different bed. Off course I didn't buy it. As you can see below is exactly the confirmation I got back from email

    Embassy Suites, just ok

    from

    We just returned from a five night stay at the Embassy Suites downtown. We were in Minneapolis for a convention. Our initial reaction was similar to the other recent review regarding the hotel needing to update and renovate. We typically try to stay at newer hotels or those that have been recently renovated so this was a bit of a disappointment. We decided to stick it out and hope for the best. We found the staff to be very friendly. Although the hotel is in need of updating, the rooms were clean and generous in size. My children's favorite part was the large, free breakfast every morning. Fruit, bacon, pancakes, sausage, eggs, cereal, yogurt, beverages, french toast, omelettes, muffins, toast etc were provided. It was by far the most generous "free" breakfast we've ever had. A great savings for a family. In the evening as was stated there are free beverages and snacks from 5:30-7:30. A generous amount of vegetables and dip along with either nachos and cheese, pretzels, or other snacks were provided each day. After a large breakfast this was about all we needed to eat each day. Other observations: If your family likes to swim, the pool is very small. There was a fan provided in our room which we used to block out sounds in the evening. The hotel is very near a police station and we heard sirens every night. There is parking attached to the hotel, but it is a public parking ramp with a fee each day charged to your hotel bill. There didn't seem to be valet parking available. You needed to take a cart out to the ramp which is connected to the hotel and bring your luggage in. This might be an issue for someone with very young children. If you are looking for a friendly place and to save a little on food this would be a great choice. If you are looking for more upscale lodging I would suggest checking out other options in the area.

    Checked out IMMEDIATELY!!

    from

    I just got back from a business trip in MN and I stayed at this hotel and though the hotel is clean and all the decor compaired to all the other Embassy suites was really very bad. The sofas in the rooms are so old and the color combinations are terrible the breakfast was not good at all and the rooms are more depressing than anything. This is a very old hotel and needs to be renovated or just redecorated. We left to go to another hotel after just one night. I would recommend something else especially if you are used to the Embassy suites this one will make you not want to stay with them ever again.

    Great rooms and freebies!

    from

    Me and four of my friends arrived at the hotel where we got checked in by a friendly staff and were on our way with our room keys in 2 minutes. When we got to the room were were shocked! The room was HUGE! We are used to cramming into hotel rooms, sleeping on the floor etc, but there was no need here. Add the extra pull out bed and we were set, nobody on the floor tonight! Later on we went down to get free drinks for 2 hours -- no limit! The drinks were great, the bartender friendly and a hottie besides! The atmosphere was great. Later on I needed some extra pillows so I called the hotel operator and they had them to my room almost before I hung up. Then as an added bonus, we all got an excellent free breakfast in the morning.Great rooms, great freebies, great service! I'll be back!
