Embassy Suites Biltmore – Phoeniz, AZ

I was here last month for a business conference. The rooms are very nice. I love that there was 3 separate sink areas (with mirrors and counter space). I was staying with one other person, but if someone was willing to stay on the pull out sofa, we could have easily done 3 ladies.

There are two separate rooms in each suite, with a door. In the first one as you walk in, is a small sofa and chair with ottoman. There is a good-sized table and chairs and a small sink area with a fridge. There is also a bathroom off to the side which was well equipped and decent sized. I never felt like we were in each other’s way and I never worried about visiting with other people in their room, there was always plenty of space.

The other room is quite large with 2 beds (or perhaps a king, not sure, we stayed in a double, obviously), a wardrobe, and an area with another sink/mirror/counter. Very nice for two women trying to get ready in the morning.

I cannot talk to the shopping or how far it was away from anything. We pretty much stayed in the hotel or went to specific places. The taxi from the airport was $25. Because we were there in groups, when we went out to dinner, the hotel provided us with a free shuttle (the driver was very nice). The hotel staff were simply amazing, always very nice and accommodating, no matter how weird our questions were (and we can ask some weird questions!)

The downside is that the air conditioner in the room was VERY loud and although we had it cranked down to 60, I doubt it got cooler than 75. That seemed to be the same according to others as well. I like a very cold room to sleep in, so that was a little annoying.

The meeting rooms were nice enough – again I didn’t think the air conditioner was cold enough though. Maybe this is the difference in me living in Austin and visiting Phoenix, but I like air conditioning!

If you visit this area, make sure to visit Tarbells Restaurant too. Absolutely exquisite!
