I've stayed at one. I liked the room (big LCD TV, which I hooked to my laptop), and the services available were good.Curious about Hyatt place, they look nice but I haven't stayed in one.
I like HGI, and Embassy. Just having a microwave in the room, and free breakfast (cooked to order) is huge for me. HGI plays with your mind though, because they are all identical, and it messes you up!So im a Hilton Whore... wanted to see what others thought. Best rewards, nicest hotels?
I think Marriott Rewards program might be better but for some reason I still like Hiltons/Embassy's and Hamptons!
Ugh, no thanks. Embassy Suites are very familiy-friendly, and no offense to the parents out there, but "familiy-friendly" and "crew rest accommodations" are mutually exclusive entities. Embassies are generally very loud, especially on the weekends. You can mitigate it somewhat with a high floor, but even that's no guarantee. And there's something about those walkways that scream "racetrack for children."Hilton all the way baby, especially Embassy Suites....
Crowne Plaza used to be one of my favorites. Lately, they seem to have gone down hill, especially the one at HPN.I prefer Crowne Plaza hotels. They are aimed at the biz traveler and are very well appointed and comfortable.
