“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We chose the Embassy Suites in Alexandria for our Family Reunion and would highly recommend it. From the planning stage through to checking out, the staff went above and beyond our expectations. The hotel is clean and inviting. The evening reception, the made to order breakfast and the food served at our banquet was excellent. Thank you for such a wonderful memory.

We stayed here for a wedding and were very pleased with the service, cleanliness and accommodations. The Sunday morning breakfast was delicious. The lobby is nicely decorated, and the bar area in the center "garden" is very comfortable.

This was a perfect place to stay when visiting both Alexandria VA and DC. The hotel is two stops on the Metro south of Reagan National Airport. ($2.25 during peak times) The metro stop is no more than 1/2 short block to the door of the hotel. The free trolley down King Street picks up in the same spot.

Staff was wonderful, including the shuttle service to and from a Starbucks at 9:30 pm. Front desk was helpful, excellent free breakfast with a wide variety of food for adults and kids, free safe deposit box and a managers reception each night with reasonable snacks (nothing fancy) and free beer and wine, including non-alcohol beer. Only negative was the dining room food: goat cheese salad had only one piece of cheese, the calamari was way too salty and the bar couldnt make an espresso.

I have used this hotel several times for small workshops -- I teach survey design -- using their conference/executive suites. Great location, close to the airport and the Metro but also having good after hours opportunities. Helpful staff. Warm, welcoming dining room staff for lunch and very nice lunches.

Very clean, great location, very comfortable, the Metro was right across the street, extremely convenient or going into Washington D.C. the location is right at the beginning of King St. where there is lots of fabulous restaurants and shopping, felt safe and inviting....would do it all over again and highly recommend it.

First time back to this property in 15 years. The location is great and even better as some local eateries and conveniences are now closer then ever.

However, we noticed little things starting to get worn, especially in the bathroom. Drains that didn't drain quickly, and worn rug and furniture. So we have to give it a Very Good, not an Excellent.

I recently took my wife to Washington DC to see friends and attend her first Redskins game. After speaking with friends who travel to the area often we decided to stay at this property. The location is great. The metro to downtown DC is across the street, Old Town Alexandria is very close and the hotel offers a free shuttle to anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel which covers most of Old Town which has very little parking if you choose to drive.
Room was comfortable and all the appliances worked without issue. The free breakfast buffet and evening receptions were great and staff was very polite/helpful. There were only a couple of negatives:
1) Parking - the parking was $26 a day the spaces were extremely small! We rented a Hyundai Genesis and we spent a fair amount of time trying to find a space which wouldn't result in door dings from people just trying to get into their cars.
2) Housekeeping - We stayed 3 nights and brought drinks back to the room from the evening reception but housekeeping never took the glasses out of the room.
Overall the negatives were minor and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The location and free amenities more than make up for any of the issues.
