Embassy Suites Los Angeles - Downey Hotel Review: Located between four major freeways, including I-5 and the 105, and also near the commercial center of Los Angeles, this hotel is ideally sited for those who have multiple locations to visit. When business or sightseeing is done, you will want to come back to relax in the courtyard or perhaps invite your colleagues for a meet-and-greet. In the atrium there are waterfalls, streams and rock pools with enormous koi swimming leisurely around. For dining, the Firestone Grill restaurant offers a selection of continental cuisine, with lots of tucked-away seating outside in the atrium, as well as booths and small seating areas inside. Sundays, there's an extensive brunch, and the complimentary Manager's Reception offers light snacks and beverages, including beer, wine and soft drinks. Cooked-to-order breakfasts are complimentary every morning in the atrium. The hotel underwent an $8 million renovation, and updated rooms are all now suites, with galley kitchens and wet bars --- a convenient set-up for a private business meeting. And if you are bringing the kids, the sofa beds provide extra comfort. For recreation there is an indoor pool and whirlpool, a dry sauna and a fitness center. Pets are allowed for an additional charge. A free shuttle is available to and from the Long Beach Airport. The 738-seat Downey Theatre next door is available for large meetings and conferences.
