“Pleasant Experience, Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

The Embassy Suites was conveniently located in the vicinity of a conference site in the Industrial Park all around. Not that there's much industry, just stores, Government Contractors and homes.
The lobby was quite impressive. A pond with two live swans is the centerpiece, decorated with live bamboo trees. The rooms are set up in courtyard fashion, the center of the hotel acting as courtyard and the rooms arranged in a square around it. Check in was quick and easy, despite the fact I had no registration, and I was given the same rate as the group to which I was assigned.
As indicated, each room is a suite with a separate living, bath and bed area, a kitchenette in between, and a large flat screen TV in each room. The rooms, despite showing their age just a little, were nicely and functionally decorated, with a couch, chairs, a chest of drawers, tables (coffee and breakfast) in the living room; and a bed, chest of drawers and closet in the bedroom. Nothing truly extravagant, but everything looked nice and clean. The bath, sandwiched between the living areas wasn't particularly large, but everything necessary was there, including an extra magnifying mirror and hair dryer. The bath/shower worked very well and was also very pleasant. The one place the suite showed a little age, was here. The sink, a heavy granite construction, was unfortunately sinking slowly and the attempt to seal the edges simply showed the widening gap more clearly.
The bed was comfortable and, bless them, there were plenty of fluffy pillows that actually supported my head. Kudos, just for that. As is the trend, the windows are there, but you can't open them - there aren't even any handles. And the only available daylight is from the one bedroom window. This makes the living area, which has a window toward the courtyard, a bit dingy. And there weren't any overhead lights, just the usual desktop lamps and a floor lamp in the living area.
The key to this place though, is the service. Breakfast is included and is very well laid out. Bread, bagels, cereals, eggs cooked to order, including omelets, coffee, tea, etc. Commendable. And even nicer is the managers happy hour every evening. You show your room card and from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, you get to drink for free and can snack from the little buffet, with a different serving each day. You can't beat that with a stick. A few of my colleagues never left the place, surviving on just the booze and the snacks.
The hotel also offers free pick-up and drop-off at the airport, some small amenities in case you forgot something, and other such little service niceties that make the place and the stay a solid experience.
I might not have stayed here while traveling on my own since the prices are definitely upscale, still it is worth the money, if you have it.

Room Tip: Since you can't open the windows and there really isn't any "view" worth noting, a...

They say McDonald's has their 85 degree bun down to a science. So does this place - any Embassy Suites, in fact. Elite service. Great night's sleep. Clean. Comfortable. Free bar apps and well drinks at certain hours. There is just not a better place to stay.

Get this, I had a head cold the one night I stayed; the manager offered on his own dime to go to the pharmacy to get me medicine (I could not let him do not, but what a gesture). Class all the way around.

My daughter and I stayed at the Embassy Suites in Herndon for four nights while we were visiting family and touring DC. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The cooked to order breakfasts were wonderful. Starbucks coffee was served with breakfast. The daily managers' reception was very pleasant. We both enjoyed the comfortable beds with the white duvet covered comforters. There were two 42-in. TVs in the suite which was a nice surprise since my daughter and I watch different programs. The sofa was not that comfortable though; it sagged terribly in the middle and should be replaced. All in all, it added to our vacation and I would definitely stay there again.

A very nice property and excellent staff. The staff goes out of their way to be sure guests are comfortable. The breakfast is cooked to order with plenty of variety. The nightly happy hour is just the ticket after a day of business meetings. The rooms are very comfortable--more than I needed, really.

Government rate for September 2011 is $211 for our agency contract with the Hilton so this Embassy Suites in Herndon VA met that requirement. The suites are two good size rooms separated by a door with the bath and shower directly in between the living room and bedroom. The wet bar and fridge / refrigerator tells me this hotel was not an original Embassy Suites, because there was no full kitchen or large refrigerator and utensils. and dining table. This embassy suites is a suites room. The service and staff and mgmt are working very hard to provide good to excellent customer service. The shuttles service to the front desk are very polite and professional and the chef /short order cook was exceptionally accomdating to customer custom orders for omelettes. Notice the bus boy or bus girl that takes away your plates are even attentive and diligent enough to refill your orange juice glass if you are empty. The staff and management are making great efforts to provide exceptional customer service and the amenities like the pool, jacuzzi, gym and security entrance and exits make this hotel a repeat hotel for me.

My only complaint for not giving this hotel a 5 star was because this hotel just could not help me with accessing the hhonors wifi internet. I tried using what they called a wireless bridge but it turned out to be a netgear G router . So, I did try to use the ethernet cable directly to the ethernet jack port on the wall in the room and connected it directly to my laptop. But unfortunately I found not signal coming from the cable connection. The day manager confirmed there are wifi routers on each floor, but you the customer should have a wifi receiver in working order. The hotel is very good, but one would rate this hotel poor in not providing the basic wifi bridge that all Marriotts, other Hilton Hotel, and other lower tier hotels have. The business office area had the internet for me to respond to my emails in length, so I was not totally out of luck.

Room Tip: High floor room provides a good view of the center atrium like the 4th floor and up

I stayed here for a few nights on business. The rooms seemed a bit dated for an Embassy Suites, but you can't beat the location and service.

In my opinion, this was a very good hotel. I loved the layout of the rooms and thought the price was good for a room (suite) this size. The room also had small kichette area with microwave, sink and refrigerator. The little extras really made a difference, like the complimentry cook-to-order breakfast, nightly reception in the lobby with complimentry cocktails and snacks, etc. The lobby was a nice place to sit and relax and is also a nice setting for the restaurant. The swans in the lobby were unique, also. We really enjoyed our stay and I wished we could've stayed longer!
