Hotel Review: Embassy Suites Oklahoma City (the one on Meridian)

I would love to give the Embassy Suites hotel in Oklahoma City (the one on Meridian near the airport) an A+ rating.

The service at the front desk was awesome.

The room was fantastic and included microwave, mini-fridge, bar, two rooms (Yes, I do know that’s why they’re called suites).

The main room has nice and comfortable furniture.

Overall, there was a great hotel atmosphere.

Also, it’s the Embassy Suites, so it comes with the well-known “manager’s reception” (free drinks and snacks from 5:30-7:30), and made-to-order breakfast.

All of this was truly fantastic and done just the way you would hope… with excellent friendly service in a nice and fun atmosphere.

Here’s the challenge with this particular Embassy Suites – the windows/doors.

The doors open onto patios, which is a nice feature for sure.  However, that meant (at least in my room,) that I listened to traffic noise on Meridian all night.

This is coming from a person who can sleep with a pillow over his head to block out noise.

I heard the people arguing in the parking lot at 3 AM, a car alarm at 4AM, and heard a diesel truck  at the hotel next door warming up his engine (albeit an aggressive revving of the engine) at 5:30 AM.

The passing cars mellowed out around 2:30 AM, and began again in earnest at 6 AM, which were significant enough to have me out of bed by 6:03.

If the reason you pay a lot for a hotel room is for the amenities, and some significant traffic and parking lot noise is something you can sleep through, the Embassy Suites near the hotel in Oklahoma City is a great hotel for you (again, at least in the room I was in, a South facing room on the Southwest corner of the building).

Everything was great here, except the noise level coming from outside.
