Black Girl Magic at the Embassy Suites in Lombard, Illinois
I had the opportunity to host a reunion of sorts with some of my college friends and Gospel Choir director at the Embassy Suites in Lombard. The Embassy Suites is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorites in the Hilton Brand; you can't go wrong with free breakfast, free drinks and spacious suites!
Centrally located 20 minutes from downtown Chicago, about 15 minutes from O'Hare and in the heart of Chicago's suburbs, this hotel is a must for the budgeted traveler, and even better for families traveling with children. Yorktown Center, Oak Brook Shopping center and tons of other shopping and dining destinations are less less than 5 minutes away.
The Embassy Suites in Lombard IL offers awesome amenities such as complimentary breakfast with an omelette station and an evening reception each night that features free cocktails and light refreshments. Additionally, the premium 2- bedroom suites feature complimentary snacks like Skittles, Lays, sodas and other cures for late night munchies. There is also a large pool and jacuzzi area that boasts adult only hours from 10pm to 11pm each night. The adult swim hours are so necessary for the busy traveler like myself who just wants to decompress in the warm jacuzzi after a long day
My friends and I had a great time catching up with each other in the newly renovated atrium area. The elevated tables we sat at gave us a great command of the breakfast setup and personally made me feel like a queen! Although we didn't take advantage of them, I particularly liked the setup of the private meeting spaces in the atrium. Each space featured a flat screen television, sectional, and coffee table, doused in ambient blue lights that gave off a posh, chill yet clubby vibe.

My time at the Embassy Suites in Lombard went by much too fast. I am looking forward to returning very soon to enjoy the executive suite, jacuzzi, and perhaps host a game night or something in the atrium again! If you are ever in the area go check them out, and tell them the Flyy Girl sent ya!
