Travel is a regular part of life here at Money Saving Parent. We usually stay at condo- style resorts when we travel as a family, but this type of lodging isn’t always available in every locale. The next best thing is a suite resort and a popular option found across the United States is Embassy Suites. We stayed for a few days at the Embassy Suites in Grapevine, Texas and found it more than adequate for our family needs. Let’s take a look:
Location is important when choosing a place of lodging and Embassy Suites in Grapevine, Texas is situated close to entertainment like the Grapevine Mall, home to Legoland and the Sea Life Aquarium. You may not have heard of Grapevine, but if you have ever flown into the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, you were in fact right on the edge of the city of Grapevine. This makes the Embassy Suites popular with travelers since it is just a few minutes from the airport and also because they offer complimentary transportation 24 hours per day, to and from the airport.
When you travel with kids, you want to stay someplace that is family friendly and Embassy Suites in Grapevine and just that. It is similar to other Embassy Suites, which tend to be very consistent in design, service, and amenities. We like the separate front room with television and desk because it means the kids can watch television without disturbing those in the other room, who are trying to sleep. The suites have a mini- refrigerator and microwave, so families have what they need for some simple snacking and drinking.
Outside of the rooms, his place of lodging is spacious and clean, with a central atrium that makes the building feel even larger than it is. There is an exercise room and pool, both in top condition and ready to use, so make sure to bring along the bathing suits. And if you get hungry or thirsty, there is a restaurant and bar on the first floor. And best of all, Embassy Suites in Grapevine starts off each morning with a complimentary breakfast buffet for all of its guests. My kids love buffets and prefer them to ordinary dining because they can select exactly what they want to eat and how much to eat.
A Suite Stay
Embassy Suites in Grapevine is a comfortable place to stay, clean, well- kept, and with a very good number of amenities. The service is very good overall and while I did experience one small issue with service at the bar, the management corrected everything and made it right. This is really all you can ask for at a hotel and I like that they took the issue seriously and corrected the problem.
Embassy Suites are located throughout the United States and they rank among the most consistent of all hotel chains. This is nice, because when you stay at an Embassy Suites, you pretty much know what to expect. You know what the suites will be like inside. You know there will be complimentary breakfast in the morning. You know there will be a refrigerator and microwave. Other hotel chains vary from one to the next, but Embassy Suites are very much the same and this predictability is part of their appeal.
Family travel is a major part of life at Money Saving Parent. We make multiple trips every year and Embassy Suites in Grapevine, Texas, is a place we would definitely stay again. Good comfort, family friendliness, and excellent location make this a suite place for a family getaway.
