As the name implies, Embassy Suites is an all-suites hotel, which is always nicer than a normal hotel room, since it adds a living/dining room that is separate from sleeping quarters. They also provide a microwave and refrigerator, but who needs them with so many great restaurants in La Jolla? (see other journal entries)
Embassy Suites has a format I really like. They use the entire ground floor as common area, including the lobby and check-in, several meeting/conference facilties, a business center (with PCs, printer, fax, etc), a gift shop, indoor pool, fitness center, bar, restaurant, ATM, and most notably, an open atrium (all the noise is on the ground floor).
The atrium contains plants, ponds (with large fish), fountains, a huge Christmas tree, and seating for the complementary breakfast, and complementary evening reception (drinks).
Beyond the ground floor, there are 4 glass elevators facing the attractive atrium to take you to the other 12 floors.
Outside, parking ($9/day) is in a multi-level parking garage, that has narrow aisles and small spaces. However, I was pleased overall with my stay here.
Several weeks following my stay, Embassy Suites sent me an extensive survey form, so they must care about repeat business.
