“Comfortable city get-away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Stayed her for some site visits in downtown DC because all downtown hotels were really overpriced at the time of my stay. Very happy with my choice, this Embassy hotel is very comfortable and well located in Alexandria. The evening drink service is great and very well attended, breakfast is good but can get busy at times. Room was very comfortable and staff friendly.

This Hotel is very very nice. I love Embassy Suites for the service they always provide and this Hotel could not be any different. Location is good if you are visiting Alexandria, VA...for those thinking about satying here and commute to DC daily, I would recommend staying closer to the city.
Breakfast at the atrium is always delicious and the manager's reception is a good opportunity to meet people and get out of the room for a while.

Thank you for your review and patronage to our hotel family. Old Town Alexandria is a beautiful, quaint area with easy accessibility from the hotel. Although Washington DC may not be as close, it is still easy to hop the metro, which is literally across the street, and ride into DC in about 20 minutes. I hope to see you again soon.

Don't get a room near the elevators the noise is or the elevtors all night will keep you up if you are a light sleeper. Free breakfasts you will have to go early as seating will fill up quickly as does afternoon happy hour.

Thank you for your review. For those individuals who are light sleepers, we will be happy to accommodate away from the elevators. I understand that being awakened by such noise can be quite disturbing, and placing a request in your reservation, will prompt the Front Office to hold a room for you farther down the hallway.

Stayed in this Embassy Suites for a last minute family getaway to the DC/VA area. I used Hilton points to book an oversized corner suite (Room 501) which I highly recommend since it has outside windows and does not open to the atrium like the other rooms. Word of caution:
1. Evening Reception gets packed! If you wait and go about an hour after it starts the line is shorter.
2. The breakfast buffet line is ridiculous...The setup is strange where you get in one line for waffles, pancakes and eggs and it is single file (and takes forever)
3. On the bright side the free trolley stops right across the street at the Metro station and runs all the way to the waterfront which my kids loved. It does get crowded so being at the first stop is a plus.

If you are looking for a hotel with easy access to DC, this is your place...If you want a hotel close to the action (low numbered streets on King) this is a bit of a hike.

Room Tip: Get a corner room if possible...there is no atrium window and the bedroom is huge.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am so glad that you chose to use your well- earned points and stay at our property. We are conveniently located directly across from the King Street Metro station and about 13 blocks from the Waterfront of Old Town Alexandria. As you suggest, parents with small children would be advised to use our hotel shuttle or the Old Town Trolley. Other guests on the other hand, may enjoy the walk down to the water, which is accentuated with boutiques and restaurants and well worth the walk. We look forward to your next visit. Best Regards…MaryAnne Russell General Manager

Excellent location, right across the street from the King St. metro station (less than 30 mins metro ride to downtown DC, 10 to Reagan airport), and within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Room was clean and spacious. Good bandwidth and responsiveness of internet access - perhaps the $9.99 price tag keeps it a bit more exclusive (which I'm fine with, BTW). Pool and exercise areas were nice, although it would have been good to know ahead of time that children under 12 are banned (by bylaw) from the whirlpool.

Good selection for breakfast.

Will definitely consider staying here again next time.

Room Tip: Front-side rooms are probably going to be noisy due to the near-constant metro and freight trains, b...

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that the hotel was to your liking. I understand your frustration with regards to the whirlpool, the lifeguard however, is merely enforcing the health code regulations of Alexandria, which state that children 12 and under are not permitted to use the whirlpool. I am glad that this will not prevent you from visiting us again in the future and look forward to your return. Best Regards…MaryAnne Russell General Manager

Great place to stay for easy access to metro. Made to order breakfast included as a nice bonus! I am not giving it 5 stars because the fold out bed was not so comfortable, just OK and the AC kept the room a little humid.

Traveled here to visit Washington DC and we loved our stay. The hotel is convieniently across from the metro station that made our going to DC very easy. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast buffett and Happy Hour were awesome. I would highly recommend this hotel. This was our first time staying in an Embassy Suite Hotel and we were so happy with our stay that when traveling we will always look to stay in Embassy Suites.
