Great hotel, a little far from downtown dc (expect at least 30 minutes on the weekend), but overall a solid hotel. We'll stay here again in the future. Great location in Old Towne, shuttle odd included off you go downtown Old Towne, with lots of places to eat.

We've used this hotel several times before because we think the location is unbeatable. It is directly across the street from Amtrak and King St. Metro stations. It is only two short Metro stops from Reagan National Airport. The area seems safe and there are lots of eating places nearby; also, a Whole Foods Market is about a block away.... More

Have started taking Amtrak from Norfolk to DC. This hotel is across the street from Amtrak and King Street metro stop. The most convenient/inexpensive for the Amtrak/Metro commuter. Very clean hotel w/ nice staff. Rooms are better than adequate. Great free breakfast - eggs to order.

Thank you for your taking the time to write this review. You are right. Amtrak and metro are so convenient, that driving into town is not always the best option. I am delighted that you had a pleasant stay and will look forward to your return. Best Regards…MaryAnne Russell General Manager More

Excellent staff and service. They were eager to please and to correct problems that we had with our room (which was minor, 1 king instead of 2 queens). Free hot breakfast was above average. Atrium in the hotel was beautiful and a nice place to hang out and relax in the evening. Bed and even pull out sofa were comfortable.... More

The travel guru at Channel 70 Video Productions picked this hotel because she knows I prefer Embassy Suites. And, this one was literally steps away from the client located on Prince Street. So, great hotel and close by hotel. Well, great except our grip truck wouldn't fit into the hotel's underground garage. By the way, no free parking here -... More

Thank you for your taking the time to write this review. I can appreciate that parking a large truck can be an issue, for the convenience of our guests, the spaces are located closest to the hotel main entrance and tend to be smaller in size. We do have larger spaces available for guest vans or trucks, but I understand... More

Stayed here to see the Nats play. The hotel is across the street from the Metro, change lines once to get to the stadium. Self park is $25/day -- spaces are tiny. This is an older Embassy that is not well set up for computer use -- no computer desk, few easily accessible electric plugs. Breakfast was very good --... More

The Embassy Suites has been undergoing renovations for quite a while now, and it seems to be almost done. Overall, well done. The lobby bar looks great, a huge upgrade over the prior setup back in the corner. The restaurant has been rebranded into Mediteranean cuisine. They closed the Duke’s restaurant, which I think is a loss. As always, the... More
