I had a to take a quick business trip to Herndon, Virginia, and I chose the Embassy Suites Dulles.
Very easy to find and convenient to my office I was visiting in Herndon.
Staff was incredibly friendly and found my reservation immediately. Within two minutes, I had my room key and was on my way up to the room via the glass elevator that looks over the typical Embassy Suites atrium.
Sadly, I checked in after happy hour was over, but the fact that Embassy Suites does this is a huge plus!
The room was spacious and clean. As is typical with Embassy Suites, there is a living area when you first walk in and a bedroom in the back. I had asked for a King Suite, but was give a room with two double beds. Since I was alone, this wasn't a big deal. Living area was very comfortable and there was a large flat screen TV in the living area as well as one in the bedroom. Very nice work desk and wet bar area.
This is my biggest pet peeves with hotels. THROW IN THE FREE WIFI!!! Embassy Suites, sadly, charges for WIFI. That to me is a full 1 star reduction, otherwise, this would have been a flawless stay.
There was a moment in the night where I could hear a baby crying in one of the adjacent rooms. However, this just reminded me of home. Babies cry. It didn't last long. Besides that, it was a very quiet stay, which I appreciated.
Embassy Suites is famous for it breakfast setup in the atrium. Fresh eggs, toast, juice, coffee....everything you need to get your day started.
Yes, swans....this Embassy Suites has two resident swans that live in the pond in the atrium. Nice touch, Embassy Suites!
This was a very nice experience at the hotel. The only thing that left me with a bad taste in my mouth is the charging for WIFI. In this day and age, hotels should include it just like a regular amenity. I understand that everyone is charging for convenience these days, bags on airplanes, etc, but come on hotels, it's time to give up the free wifi!!!
