“Great for small meetings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I have used this hotel several times for small workshops -- I teach survey design -- using their conference/executive suites. Great location, close to the airport and the Metro but also having good after hours opportunities. Helpful staff. Warm, welcoming dining room staff for lunch and very nice lunches.

Very clean, great location, very comfortable, the Metro was right across the street, extremely convenient or going into Washington D.C. the location is right at the beginning of King St. where there is lots of fabulous restaurants and shopping, felt safe and inviting....would do it all over again and highly recommend it.

First time back to this property in 15 years. The location is great and even better as some local eateries and conveniences are now closer then ever.

However, we noticed little things starting to get worn, especially in the bathroom. Drains that didn't drain quickly, and worn rug and furniture. So we have to give it a Very Good, not an Excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for being a return guest. I am pleased to say, that we are going to be updating all of the case goods in our rooms and renovating the bathroom facilities as well, at the end of 2013. I am hoping that on your next visit, in a nearer future, you may once again rate our hotel as, “Excellent”. Best Regards…MaryAnne Russell General Manager

I recently took my wife to Washington DC to see friends and attend her first Redskins game. After speaking with friends who travel to the area often we decided to stay at this property. The location is great. The metro to downtown DC is across the street, Old Town Alexandria is very close and the hotel offers a free shuttle to anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel which covers most of Old Town which has very little parking if you choose to drive.
Room was comfortable and all the appliances worked without issue. The free breakfast buffet and evening receptions were great and staff was very polite/helpful. There were only a couple of negatives:
1) Parking - the parking was $26 a day the spaces were extremely small! We rented a Hyundai Genesis and we spent a fair amount of time trying to find a space which wouldn't result in door dings from people just trying to get into their cars.
2) Housekeeping - We stayed 3 nights and brought drinks back to the room from the evening reception but housekeeping never took the glasses out of the room.
Overall the negatives were minor and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The location and free amenities more than make up for any of the issues.

Awsome location. Directly across from the King St. Metro station. Trains run on a continuing schedule. About a 15 minute ride to DC. Two blocks from King Street, with all kinds of resturants, pubs and entertainment.

If you would like a comfortable, spacious, clean hotel with a complimentary cook to order breakfast you should consider this Embassy Suites. Parking is available below the hotel and the King Street Metro stop is across the street.

We have stayed at this well located property on a number of occasions. The hotel is adjacent to the Metro and Amtrak stations while Old Town can be reached on foot or by free trolley.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable. One us is interested in railroads and so enjoyed the view overlooking the tracks. Breakfast and a Manager’s Reception in the early evening are included in the room rate which therefore represents excellent value. On each occasion that we have booked to stay, the prices and the range of available deals have been different. An excellent new innovation on this occasion was the premium rooms on the top floor which have 24 hour access to drinks/ snacks. Those who book their accommodation at a relatively early date would be well advised to check back nearer the time of their stay to see if a better deal is available. By doing this, we were able to change to a premium room with car parking and internet access and save a significant sum of money in the process. We hope to return!

Room Tip: A high floor room away from the elevators is best.
