    “El Embajador Hotel - SDQ”

    Despite renovations that are ongoing that make the outside look questionable. The newly refreshed rooms are very nice and the other amenities are top notch as well. As long as renovations continue I imagine this will be a great value.

    “LOVE the renovations!”

    I have stayed at this hotel about 7 times in the last 3-4, first stay since the renovations. I absolutely LOVE the renovations they have done to the rooms. They did a very good job making use of all the space in the room, the bathroom is way more spacious and well appointed. The pool and breakfast are some of the highlights of this hotel, though, service at the pool can be hit or miss. Sometimes the waitresses come around and sometime they don't, which means you have to get up and go to the bar yourself. Not the biggest deal, but some consistency would be nice. Also, their WiFi is great, signal is nice and strong and it works just about everywhere on the grounds. I have 2 gripes about my most recent rip. First, has to do with the people at the reception desk. Every time I have been to this hotel, I have always arrived around 3 or 4 in the morning, as my flight would arrive an hour or so earlier. I always book for the night before so that my room would be ready and waiting for me when I arrive at that early hour. Well this time, the guy at the reception desk tells me that the system kicked me out of the system as a "no show". He said it was because it was booked through Expedia. Well, on numerous other occasions I have booked through Expedia, and this was never a problem. My issue here is that I had send a message to the manager prior to my arrival asking for a room on the pool side on a high floor, and didn't get that. I completely understand that it's based on availability, but the hotel was not very busy the days I was here, so an accommodation could have been made. I was also met with a huge attitude cause the reception guy couldn't figure out how to get my reservations back. Sorry, but that's not my fault that you don't know how to use the system. And upon checkout, I was told I needed to pay a "no show" fee. What?!?!?! I exchanged a few words at the girl handling the transaction as she realized I was NOT happy about this and she called a manager and had it removed. Mind you, I was never told that I would have been charged a fee when I arrived. The second gripe was the cleanliness of the room. The sheets and towels were fine, but it was clear by the pile of dirt that was left under one of the sitting chars that someone didn't finish their job. The floor has a lot of dust and dirt from the previous guest that was never cleaned up. Also, there was a plate and cutlery setup at the sitting table, that were not very clean either. The plate that was left with the setting was VERY noticeably dirty, with food that didn't come off in the in the dish washer still stuck to it. One thing I would love to see in the rooms is one of those luggage rack things so that you don't have to lay your suitcase directly on the floor. Also a rewards program through the hotel group would be nice, for free stays. Other than these few issues, this is a great hotel, in a great area of the city with free parking. I do plan to stay here again, but do hope that the management has a chat with their reception staff, as they are the first face of their visitor's stay.

    “Clean, tech up to day and great staff”

    My overall first impression was that it was an older hotel that was pleasantly surprising. It had a vintage look in the lobby and hallways but the rooms were very well updated. The support staff was extremely accommodating and courteous. The check in process was a bit longer than normal but it could be that I arrived earlier than the check in time. I honestly do not know what time check in is usually for this hotel. The rooms were very clean and well lit. The technology available was the best compared to other local hotels. Wifi in the front part of the lobby was off and on because of the construction that they had going on. They explained this to me upon arrival. The restaurant in the back was very clean, prompt and courteous. I did not have time to use the pool because I was there for business although it looked very nice. The local restaurants immediately available to the hotel were well within walking distance and delicious. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone who is going for business or pleasure.
