When This Embassy Suites Opens Next Year, It Will Have Its Own Wine Label
Hotels putting out their own brand of wines is nothing new but it is quite unusual to hear of a private wine label from an Embassy Suites Hotel. Yet when the Embassy Suites opens their hotel in the Horn Rapids golf community of Richland, Wash., next year that's exactly what the hotel will have.
The hotel will sit on three acres of vineyard which will be open for guests to tour and explore. Grapes from the vinyeard will be used to make the private label wine that will be sold exclusively at the hotel and of course, offered in the hotel's full service restaurant and Bistro wine bar.
But don't worry, you won't be stuck drinking just Embassy Suites wine. The hotel promises to feature over 160 wines from wineries located within 60 minutes of the hotel.
And true to its name, the 165-suite hotel will feature all the signature amenities of Embassy Suites such as two-room suites with separate living areas, kitchenettes, flat-screen HDTVs, free cooked-to-order breakfast downstairs (necessary for wine-tasting hangovers), a complimentary two-hour manager's reception, and complimentary fitness and business centers.
Alas, you will have to wait a little longer to get your boozy Embassy Suites stay on. Construction will begin this summer with the hotel expected to open in 2013.
