This hotel is conveniently located with spacious and clean rooms. Breakfast is outstanding. The evening reception is fair (popcorn, nachos, etc.) The staff, particularly the front desk staff, are very polite, professional, and helpful. The only drawback is IT IS LOUD. One end of our room faced the street (with the Metro train, the VRE trains, the DC buses and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. “Almost perfect” is such a great accolade and yet still falls short of what we expect for our hotel. We always aim for the “perfect stay” and are disheartened when that is not the case. I can appreciate that some of our guests are more sensitive to noise and that... More

We spent three nights at the Embassy Suites in Alexandria-Old Town recently while showing our grandson some of the sights in Washington. It is in a perfect location for a visit to DC. The Metro is right across the street. The staff was helpful and friendly. The manager's reception every night is a great place to unwind after a full... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. It is located in Alexandria, VA, directly across the street from the King St. metro station. It takes approximately 30 minutes to travel from the King St. Station to the center of Washington D.C. The hotel is currently under renovation, but for the most part, I can't say that it had a...

This was a very nice hotel - which is currently undergoing a renovation of its atrium. That made our stay a bit noisier, and the "Manager's Reception" was VERY crowded into their limited atrium space. That being said, EVERYTHING else was an echo of "palmer77" and "Aasnmd"s reviews. I won't repeat the great things they said about the hotel or... More

When everything is great about a hotel then one REALLY BAD EXPERIENCE wrecks it a little bit.... 1. Great location for a 30 minute train to DC sights 2.

Thank you for your review. Although I am pleased that you enjoyed our hotel and your visit, I am concerned about your less than adequate encounter with our shuttle van driver. Our bell staff is usually quite accommodating and pleasant. Nonetheless, I do not tolerate rudeness and I shall review proper etiquette with our staff. I am pleased that this... More

Great location for using public transportation. Across the street from King Street station. Clear view of the Masonic Temple if facing the front. First hotel with complimentary hot breakfast that was actually hot. Rooms need updating, the lobby was bring renovated. Our HHonors rep didn't mention this though.

This hotel is directly across the street from the King St. Metro Station, in a very nice neighborhood. You can fly into Washington National Airport, catch the metro there, and ride two short stops to this hotel. We stayed a week and got everywhere via metro. There are a number of small restaurants and a great Whole Foods Market within... More
