If you are traveling around DC and happen to pass Embassy Row, get out of the cab and walk a few blocks. Nothing special to see, but it is an interesting place to stretch you legs. Otherwise don't feel like you missed something by not coming here. Was this review helpful? Please let me know by clicking on the button... More

This is a unique and safe neighborhood for walking and enjoying the many beautiful buildings. Washington DC's multi-cultural personality is on display. There are large and small countries represented and you may be surprised to see 3rd world countries with embassies that have amenities their residents will never enjoy. Also remember that diplomats have immunity and can drive and park... More

I did stay at the Embassy Row Hotel and though the manager reached out to me after I commented on my experience with getting two bed, she never actually reached me. However, when I arrived at the hotel, and nicely asked if two beds were available she said "yes." and gave me that room. I don't know why this couldn't... More

Nice place to walk and see a wide variety of architecture that you normally don't see in other places. Each place had something unique about it and if you took the time to read the plaques and signs you learned much about the building as well as the country that owned it.

This is a unique neighborhood that you don't see in any other cities. You can see so many embassies (often have their own cultural artifacts decorating the buildings), so many different styles of architecture. It was awesome to take a walk in the district with my kids trying to recognize different national flags and chatting about the people, places, things... More

Embassy Row. If you’re staying in this part of town, don't skip taking the time to walk up and down Massachusetts to view the various embassies. It was fun to try to guess which flags belong to each country and to marvel at the vast amount of buildings Greece occupies. Some of the buildings are clearly well maintained while others... More

Its fun to look at the different plaques and statues of famous poets, Nelson Mandela, Jibran Khalil, Winston Churchill and others. Nice landscaping to see as well. It's a safe neighborhood since the Vice President has his official residence there too.

There were so many embassies our tour guide was flustered. Nice neighborhood with awesome architecture. Most of the embassies have something on the exterior from their country of origin. Not sure if it is a must see, but interesting.

The Embassy Row along Massachusetts Avenue in Washington is well known. If you know the flags of different nations, you could easily spot which country is which. There is usually a small sign that would inform you too; or a big one, for that matter. But there is another area where there are quite a few embassies: the Van Ness... More

Loved seeing so many beautiful embassies with amazing architecture, flags, and memorials. There's such a range as you walk along the large area, from Albania to Zimbabwe, Moldova to Mauritania, Togo to Tanzania - loved it.
