It is best to visit D.C. without a car. Take Amtrak (train) to Alexandria or take the train to Washington, then the Metro (subway www.wmata.com) to the King Street Station. The Embassy Suites is located across the street from both Amtrak's Alexandria station and the Metro's King Street Station. Enjoy the free breakfast, then get on the Metro and start... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I agree that when traveling to DC, if at all possible, the use of public transportation is recommended, as it will prevent much frustration when trying to find parking throughout the city. I am pleased that you had an enjoyable time and were able to partake of the Manager’s Reception.... More

We were a family group staying in three rooms over President's weekend. The front desk staff was able to check us in when we arrived very early (at 9:30 a.m.), and advised us that we were welcome to have breakfast (even though normal check-in time is not until mid-afternoon). So they already made a great impression on us, and the... More

Second year in a row we spent at the Embassy for President's day weekend. Nice rooms; great breakfast; and a nice happy hour to wrap up the day. Easy access to the Meto and Old Town. Free parking on street after 7:00, and free on the weekends so don't pay if you'll be out during the day and just paking... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you chose to stay with us again and that your stay was pleasant. Perhaps on your next stay, you may want to specify on your reservation, that you’d like a room away from the elevator? Although these are requests, our staff will do their very best to accommodate your room location... More

This hotel has a great location right near the King Street Metro. It would be good for travelers who just want a place to crash at night after a day of touring the area. The furnishings are all in boring and old fashioned patterns in nuetrals. The shower was made old tiles and in need of updating. The main table... More

We stayed at the Embassy Suites Old Town last September, and just booked again for April. The hotel and the staff were amazing. The breakfast was delicious and fresh and hot. The bar staff was so friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location was wonderful. The metro is just across the street. And we loved walking down King... More

I stay here frequently as I often have business in Alexandria. The location is great - right across from the Metro so an easy trip from the airport. I'm not fond of the restaurants in the immediate area but it isn't far from some wonderful Old Town options and if the weather doesn't cooperate the hotel shuttle will take you... More

This was an overnight stay for business, and I got the king suite with free parking deal. Love this location and the atrium is great for hanging out to drink coffee and watch the news. My room was clean and spacious. All in all a good experience.

My dad and I stayed here for the 2013 inauguration weekend. We found out we would be attending less than a month before and decided to stay outside the district in Alexandria since most hotels were already booked or charging exorbident prices. Overall, we were very satisfied with the stay. The hotel is across from the metro, which worked perfectly... More

We were in DC for Inauguration. This hotel is directly across the street from the King Street Metro, great shopping and restaurants as well, not to mention the hotel shuttle was great to go shopping and the drivers were very courteous and accomodating. I loved the separate, roomy shower as well. This hotel is a 10 on every level of... More

This property was a well appointed ES hotel, and is what you would expect from an upscale ES. The location is immediately adjacent to the Metro and can get you anywhere you need to go. Old Town is a great place to visit, shop, and eat, and you can get to DC or the airport easily. Slightly overpriced, but all... More
