History[edit]

Embassy Suites was originally created by the Holiday Corporation, better known for Holiday Inns. The original Embassy Suites was built in Overland Park, Kansas in 1984.

In 1990, the parent company of Embassy Suites became The Promus Companies Incorporated.

In December 1999 Embassy Suites Hotels joined the Hilton Family after the merger of Hilton Hotels Corp. and Promus Hotel Corp.

In July 2007, the Blackstone Group announced that it would buy Hilton Hotels for $26 billion.[2]

Commercials[edit]

In early 2011, Embassy Suites announced a series of three new 30-second commercials, to be aired in major markets beginning in March 2011. The commercials feature the character 'Mr. More' and are directed by Roman Coppola. The series highlights three of the Embassy standards, True Two Room Suites, Cooked-to-Order Breakfast and the Manager's Reception. The catch phrase is 'What's better than getting more of more and less of less?'[citation needed]

In the 2000s, commercials for Embassy Suites featured a boy named Austin who described a family vacation at an Embassy Suites Property. In the 1980s and early '90s, commercials for Embassy Suites featured Garfield along with the slogan "You don't have to be a fat cat to enjoy the suite life".[citation needed]
