My wife and I are members of the America's 911 Foundation that holds a 4 day motorcycle ride
which visits each the crash sites of the horrific events of September 11, 2001. Each year this organization raises thousands of dollars for the dependents of our dedicated Emergency Response people in the form of scholarships and other support. One of the three overnight locations is in Arlington, VA (Crystal City in Washington, DC just across the parkway from the Pentagon. The Double Tree hotel normally reserves rooms for the 1,000 or so riders. In 2011,
the Double Tree was booked so we called the Embassy Suites just down the street and reserved a room. What a difference!!! The accommodations and service were outstanding. No matter the question or concern each and every member of their staff were quick to answer and/or resolve it.
The rooms were individual suites and absolutely immaculate. This year the gentleman who provided room service actually remembered us and even remembered the room we were in the previous year!!! That's service. I am not saying the Double Tree is not a fine establishment, but if you want that little extra I strongly suggest the Embassy Suites. Enjoy
