We were exhibiting at the DC Convention Center and needed a hotel on the Metro that wasn't out of our budget. I'm from Northern Virginia and thought of the Embassy Suites. Pros: Location - across the street from Metro, close to many attractions and restaurants in Old Town. I liked that we got a 2 room suite with a buffet... More

As everyone says, the location is excellent ~ great access to the Metro and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants in Alexandria. We read previous reviews, where people expressed concerns about the breakfast. The General Manager responded to these comments as we found the omelette line much shorter, and the use of chafing dishes for sausage, scrambled eggs... More

I stayed there a couple weeks ago as part of a break in the DC area and as others have noted the location is great for those who are coming into the area and flying into Reagan National Airport as it's about a ten minute ride on the Blue or Yellow Metro lines. I would note that guests will want... More

A literal stone's throw from the King Street Metro station (and Amtrak depot), this serviceable hotel was the hub for our 7-day, 6-night vacation to DC. Not only was the property adjacent to the Metro stop (and a 20-25 min. ride to the middle of D.C.), it's also next to the free trolley that goes to the waterfront district of... More

This location truly can't be beat. It's right across from the King Street metro, giving you easy access to DC and the airport. It's a short walk to the main part of King Street with great restaurants and bars. Check in could have been a bit quicker but it wasn't terrible. The manager's reception with free beer and wine is...

We landed at the airport (not Dulles) and got right on the train and a few stops later we were at our hotel. It only took about 6 minutes to arrive right across the street from the Embassy Suites Hotel, Old Town. There is a Trolley that is free and you can take it right in to Old Town and... More

An updated review. The Embassy Suites in Old Town is a wonderful choice for a family reunion or event. All of our guests were happy with their rooms. It was great fun running into everyone for morning breakfast, or walking along King Street, or for the hotel's "happy hour" reception in the lobby. And the hotel is right near the... More

I flew cross country on a red eye flight with two teenagers. We arrived exhausted and way to early for check-in. The nice man at the front desk made sure we got into a room and reminded us that if we hurried we could still have breakfast. Right across from the metro train, shuttle to and from downtown area!

Great location near the King Street Metro exit, just 2 stops from Reagan National. I loved how quaint Alexandria was. Walking distance to Old Town Alexandria. Lots of shops and food shops in Alexandria. Breakfast was great, but a bit crowded with lots of families there.

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.
