The Embassy Suites is a convenient place to stay if you are visiting the D.C. area. The Metro is just across the street. If you fly into National Reagan airport, it's easy to access the Metro to the King Street Exit and only about 2 stops I believe from the airport. It's also easy to hop on Metro and go downtown to visit the Museums etc. The hotel was nice enough. Of course the rooms are huge. The only grip I had was the breakfast. Didn't think it was all that good and it could get very crowded. So after the first day, I skipped it. You can walk to Whole Foods store as well as walk all over Old Towne Alexandria to shops and restaurants. So all in all a nice place to stay.
