We stay at the Chevy ChaseEmbassy suites every time we visit the DC area. This time we thought we would stay at another location. What a mistake! The breakfast is awful...under cooked eggs & bacon, badly made omlettes, buffet suppose to open at 630 on Fridays...how about try 730. The parking is made for sub compact cars, the furnishings in...

My family (myself, my husband and three children ages 7 to 14) spent 5 days here over Christmas this week. Another family of the same size also stayed here with us. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The extended brunch hours and pool hours on Christmas day were nice, since everything in the area was closed for the holiday.... More

This is a favorite location. Love it. The breakfast is no longer high quality. Eggs are not fresh and when made into scrambled or an omelet it shows in taste! Staff was very nice and very clean comfortable.

I have stayed here many times over the years and it still has the feel of home away from home. They still have same General manager and hospitality staff. They have a new restaurant and renovated hospitality area. Free shuttle to take you to nearby Old Town area, located near King Street Station 2 stops from Reagan airport.

the hotel was across the street from the metro and Amtrack rail. From our room we could see the George Washington Mason and the national mall. King street is fun to walk but there is a free trolley if you can't walk the distance to the harbor. The room was great seems to have been recently remodeled. The breakfast was... More
