We chose this hotel as our base while visiting D.C. and are very happy with our choice. Far better, cheaper and better quality than previous experiences staying in the city itself. This hotel lies within walking distance to the metro, which will take you in to the heart of Washington in minutes. In addtion you can enjoy the quaint and... More

If you are taking a family trip to DC without spending major bucks, I'm not sure there's a better place to stay. The Embassy Suites is literally across the street from the Metro, giving you a twenty-minute ride into the heart of the capital. Our room was big and comfortable for a family of five. The breakfast was free and... More

This was our first time at this hotel. The breakfast, room, and bar staff were wonderful. They were all polite and made us feel very welcome. The front desk staff were polite, but can definitely pick up a hospitality tip from them. The rooms were clean and very quiet. We stayed on the same side as the metro, but didn't... More

This hotel experience was outstanding! The service was excellent, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the complimentary breakfast included made to order hot breakfast items. The location is in walking distance of small businesses and restaurants.

My wife and I stayed at the Embassy Suites in Old Town for 2 nights and we loved it. When arriving at the hotel for check in we could barely pull into the front area and just know it is very small. We have a Camry and with 2 other cars parked there it was hard to pull in. Check... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are indeed anxiously awaiting the room case updates which will take place at the end of 2013. This will undoubtedly bring about a well-deserved face lift, to our already spacious and convenient rooms. Although the parking spaces for the hotel were selected for the ease of entry to the...

This hotel is directly across the street from the Metro, which will take you to downtown D.C. (Mall) in about 15-20 minutes. This was a very convenient way to see D.C. without the hassle of driving into the city. The hotel itself is huge. The parking garage is a bit tight. The rooms were very nice - we had a... More

A bit outdated as far as furnishing and Wifi access. Great location and great breakfast. The pool was smaller then expected. Overall a great value for the wedding discount we received. I probably won't have paid more. Beds/pillows were very comforatble.
