3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This location is in great condition. The facility is beautiful and the room was impressive. The staff were very professional and helpful while ensuring we had an enjoyable stay. I highly recommend this hotel if you are in Delaware.

I enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was wonderful and I appreciated that there is a TGI Friday’s attached to the hotel.

My wife, son and I were in Newark to visit a friend and were very pleased with our stay at Embassy Suites. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very pleasant. I will definitely be staying here again when we make our visits to Newark!

Good but overwhelmed with large group of hotel guests with unsupervised children

I like staying here and it's a plus that TGI Fridays is in the parking lot. We had a problem with ants in our room this particular visit.

The Hotel needs an upgrade...New furniture, update bath rooms and the mattress on the beds. My King Size Mattress had a sink in the center.

Nice LOOKING HOTEL - we agreed to spend more money than planned because of Embassey reputation. HOWEVER, our room though non-smoking, smelled like smoke. Our clothes smelled the same way after the overnight.

It was very good. Too crowded in the breakfast during the long weekend.

Love the evening reception and made to order breakfast. it's also nice to have two rooms for the price of one. We certainly stay here again.Thanks

This was my first experience at this hotel and I loved it! I'm from Delaware and out of several hotels this is one that I would definitely stay at again. I had a girls night in party and I was afraid that they would be strict on guest policies but it was the total opposite. Guest services was very professional and courteous and the rooms were very clean. I also loved their beautiful lobby area and their managers special that serves complimentary light snacks and beverages in the evening from 5:30pm to 7:30pm and breakfast buffet in the morning. Can't wait to stay their again!

Hotel was clean and comfortable, but they have taken "green" too far. The toilet paper (made from recycled content) was grey and crumbly. Also, the air was turned off so it was very uncomfortable when I arrived in the room. They turned the refrigerator off to save energy, but I didn't realize that until after I had stored some leftovers inside and found them warm the next day. Also, I requested a non-smoking room but was placed in a smoker.

Loved this Hotel

We stayed 2 nights. For some unknown reason the housekeeping thought we did not want our room cleaned the first night. So, we didn't have our room cleaned, we complained and received fresh towels. The complimentary breakfast was very good.
