“Nice package deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We have stayed at several hotels within Old Town Alexandria but this was our first time at the Embassy Suites. The hotel is very easy to access from I-95 and I-495 and is located directly across the street from the King Street Metro Station, making travel into the District of Columbia very easy. The city also runs a free trolley from the Metro Station to the Alexandria Waterfront, offering easy access to all that Old Town has to offer (good restaurants, shops, etc.). The hotel is currently undergoing a major renovation but we were not affected during our recent weekend stay. Finding parking in Old Town is a challenge and hotels generally charge a premium rate for the privilege. We opted for a two-day stay with a rate that included underground parking at the hotel. Traffic in Old Town and in DC can be horrendous, so plan to leave the car in the garage and use the free trolley to get into Old Town or take Metro into DC. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean, and the breakfast was great, with made-to-order eggs and an excellent coffee bar. The only complaint that I have is that the drive-in to the registration parking area is VERY tight and in high season, you may have to park on the street while you register at the front desk.

The location was great. Near metro, bus, and free shuttle on King street. Excellent room and breakfast/evening reception. Very happy with elevators. Polar vortex blizzard hit during our stay. Inside hotel temperature was good. Short walk across street for public transportation. Pool was nice and had a lifeguard. Hot tub felt good but could have been larger.

This is a great hotel with a great location. It is close enough for me to walk to work in the morning, and I am able to catch the Metro to and from the airport. A quick walk down King Street takes you to many different shopping and dining experiences.

This hotel is located across from the King Street Metro in Alexandria Old Town - there is want for nothing. A very enjoyable stay with an abundance of dining options and conveniently next to a Whole Foods Grocery. The fitness room is legitimate and well maintained. The parking garage is convenient and has easy access from the hotel.

Overall this is one of the best Embassy Suites - great location (close to Metro and top of King Street with great shops and Restaurants within easy walking distance), updated décor, clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. I would recommend this as a family and work destination.

My wife, two daughters(14 & 19 years old) and I stayed here for a long weekend after Christmas in premium king suite. Very nice room with contemporary decor with a very comfortable king size and according to my daughters an adequate queen sofabed. We had an eighth floor view of the metro station(soundproofing was great) and George Washington Masonic monument tower. Hotel is on western edge of old town Alexandria and easy walking distance to all the great restaurants and shops; very pretty locale and friendly locals. Premium room includes buffet breakfast(average but good), free snacks and non-alcoholic drinks in cabinets by elevators(with PIN), and free wi-fi. Parking on site for $26/night with in/out privileges. Would stay again!

Room Tip: Premium package is worth extra expense for two or more people

We booked two suites for five nights during December for a small family reunion. One party arrived by train, and the Amtrak station is right behind the King Street Metro, i.e. within very easy walking distance. The King Street Metro was within easy walking distance, even for (us very) seniors, and so were the many fine restaurants along King Street. We could have used the free trolley, but found the walk very pleasant.

The suite was comfortable, and when the door between the sitting room and the bedroom was closed what little noise and kitchen smells that travelled up through the central atrium, were not at all noticeable. The breakfast bar was very ample, the exercise room and pool were clean, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We will stay there again on our next trip

Room Tip: Our room was on the 7th floor, facing Diagonal Street and the George Washington Mason monument and t...
