We stayed here for one night on Friday. The hotel is located in a good residential neighborhood- 16th street and R. Less than 10 minutes walking to DuPont Circle. While the location is pretty good, the room is very dated- full size bed with two old chairs, sporadic wifi although advertised to have free wifi. Very loud traffic noise all... More

We were supposed to stay at the District Hotel but since there was a renovation going on in that hotel, the receptionist transferred us to their partner hotel which is the Embassy Inn. They arranged the transfers of course and gave us free breakfast for the inconvenience. Service is good, staff and receptionists are courteous. Internet connection was on and... More

I stayed a few nights in the Embassy Inn on 16th St., NW. It is about 20 walk from the White House, so it's very well located. First off, it is not a hotel, but an inn, so if you expect the level of service and the facilities of a hotel, you'll be disappointed. But I was on a tight... More

I stayed at this hotel during a girlfriend weekend away. The hotel is located near many of the downtown attractions. Positives: near the Marta line, near restaurants and not to far off the beaten path, and updated bathroom. Negatives: No parking, very hard to find, the rooms are very small and the front desk staff are not hospitable. The only... More

My husband and I stay here several time a year. This is not a fancy hotel and most rooms are very small. It is comfortable, always clean, the bathrooms are updated, the staff is always friendly, its close to restaurants and it is in a nice area of DC (Dupont Circle). You may encounter a missing handle on your wardrobe,... More

I stopped here for two nights. On booking.com it said there was parking there is only the streets beside the hotel to park in. As soon as I walked in the hotel we were greeted by a moody arrogant man that was very unhelpful. The hot water only lasts for about 90seconeds so showers are short and sweet. The walls... More

Can't understand all of the bad reviews at all. This is a clean, respectable hotel. We had 2 queen beds in a large room with a spotless bathroom. $180 a night included breakfast. Check in with Delores was efficent and she was so helpful with suggestions on where to eat and directions to the sights. Plenty of food options on... More
