This far exceeded our expectations. The Embassy Inn is in a perfect location and is easy walking distance to pretty much everything. We appreciated the free parking and the wonderful, free, breakfast. Definitely the best free breakfast that we have ever seen! We were surprised with the high ceilings in our room and the view of the city lights and harbour at night. It was a very peaceful, safe stay with excellent, kind and helpful staff! The only thing that would make it better would be a pool or hot tub but then there could be more people. . . hmmm...probably exactly as it should be then!

Pleasantly surprised as the hotels around the Embassy in were very large and extravagant so was a bit worried what it would be like bc the price fit our budget for our one night stay. Loved it, clean, comfy, location awesome and the complementary buffet breakfast was great. And free parking.

The Embassy Inn is located across the street from the parliament buildings. We have stayed here on 2 separate occasions. The staff is competent and friendly. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. There is free parking onsite, either in the underground garage or just outside the hotel. Breakfast (cereal, muffins, bagels, waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage/ potato) is served in a small dining area just off the lobby. We appreciate being able to get espresso drinks (espresso, americano, cappucino, mocha) from the self-serve coffee machine in the breakfast area at any time. If you have a suite with a kitchen or arrive when restaurants are closed, you can buy groceries / takeout foods at the Red Barn and Thrifty Foods which are within walking distance from the hotel. It's also an easy walk to see the parliament buildings, provincial museum, and the Empress Hotel.
