Embassy Suites Resort Vacations
Embassy Suites is part of the Hilton Worldwide Group and operate 223 hotels in six countries. Like other hotels in the Hilton brand, the majority of Embassy Suites hotels are owned and managed by franchisees that need to adhere to the company’s brand values. Originally established by the Holiday Corporation, the first Embassy Suites location was set up in Kansas in 1984. Since then, the company has opened locations around the world, offering guests first-class amenities and excellent customer service. As Embassy Suites is part of the Hilton brand, guests can join the brand’s loyalty scheme – which has more than 30 million members – and collect points to redeem on future hotel stays and flights. There are several membership tiers and guests can collect points from air miles or when they stay at a Hilton location.
There are 222 Embassy Suites hotels in the US alone, including locations in major cities across the country. These hotels are centrally located and offer guests the chance to explore local landmarks and other points of interest. The largest Embassy Suites hotel? That honor goes to the Niagara Falls-Fallsview branch in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The hotel has 512 rooms and is 42 stories tall. Other locations include Boston, Tucson, and Atlanta.
Embassy Suites hotels have won several awards in recent years, including the Connie Award – named after Conrad Hilton, the founder of the Hilton brand. In 2014, the Raleigh-Durham Airport location won the Connie Award for scoring top points on customer satisfaction, room cleanliness, and brand standards. The Hilton Company was voted the happiest place to work in American in 2012 according to Careerbliss.com. The hotel chain scored 4.36 out of 5 in a survey that asked employees about job satisfaction, work-life balance and work relationships.
If you stay at an Embassy Suites location, you can expect a certain level of service regardless of the hotel you choose. All rooms have a separate living space – which differs from many hotel chains. This living area includes a sofa bed and a television and is separated from the sleeping area. Although decor will differ depending on the room and location, panoramic elevators and spacious rooms are hallmarks of Embassy Suites and guests can expect a wide range of eating options including traditional and continental breakfasts. Just like other Hilton locations, Embassy Suites were quick to adapt to technological trends and guests can book a room on the company’s website, engage with the brand on social media or download a mobile app.
