We had booked the 2 bedroom 2 bath suite as we were traveling with the kids. It was a good location and breakfast was included. What a mistake! My wife found a pair of earrings in the room and a towel was draped over the bathroom door. I saw ants in one bathroom and then my wife had some crawl... More

We stayed at this resort for three days in mid September. Our room was on the third floor and was decent, except for a fairly strong smell of mildew. We thought the staff were all very nice and helpful. Pool was small and the fitness center is really just some treadmills. The breakfast and daily free cocktail reception were much... More

This was a picturesque hotel and the staff matched the ambiance of the building. The staff made you feel like family and were always there to be helpful. The hotel was centrally located, but not in the hustle of tourists. Loved it

Embassy Suites brought their comfortable 2-room suites into an 18th century historical landmark, the original Citadel. Tiny windows in the rooms were formally gun ports. Original brick walls have not been covered up. It's like a castle/fort. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Valets were hopping and it was so hot - high 90's-100's. Breakfast staff greeted you every... More

As a rule I tend to stay in Embassy Suites when travelling with a larger group or on business. I like the separate rooms and the prepared breakfast option. This time I was travelling with my husband and daughter-in-law to pick up a car shipped to Charleston -- so Embassy Suites the choice. When travelling with my husband, we go... More

Marginal for the cost. High Odors for air freshener, lack of seating for meals and bar. Expected more after staying in ES Crystal City. This one was an overpriced Hampton Inn. Rooms were okay. High Windows prevented a view to the park outside. Picking a park side view was a waste of time. Electronic check in items did not show... More

Good location, enjoyed our stay. Had a major problem trying to get back to the airport after asking the hotel to set up transportation. Recommend setting this up yourself. Otherwise clean, friendly staff

If there was a higher number on the scale for the breakfast and morning staff, then I would have checked it. Everyone was courteous throughout my stay. The ladies working around the restaurant during breakfast were especially pleasant and helpful. Thank you all for providing a great experience and filling breakfast to begin my days there.
