“Mostly great... ”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

I come here a lot on business to the USPTO. I get here really early in the morning and they always give me breakfast, even if they don't have a room ready. The high speed Internet was solid and I needed it because my business was at the USPTO and it was closed the day I got there. So I got some good work done in the room. The furniture is always a little beat up. I had a premium room. The bluetooth radio and coffee maker were very nice.
The problems...
Part of the premium room's benefits were access to a refreshment center. I was there for four days. The refreshment center only had stuff in it on the third night. I had to ask for the code to be able to access it. So, basically, I paid for a benefit I couldn't use for most of the stay.
Also, I had been eating out every day until that third night and I wanted to eat in. The wait for food was a little bit ridiculous. At least they let me know ahead of time so I could get some food quickly.
Otherwise, a good stay.

Stayed January 2014, traveled on business

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for your continued patronage. I am pleased that your stay was pleasant, however, concerned that you had issues with the refreshment center on the premium floor. I will have to review this information with our Front Office Manager to understand what might have happened. Should you be inclined to do so, please contact me at the hotel, I would very much like to speak to you about your stay. Best Regards…MaryAnne Russell General Manager

I would stay again and recommend this Hotel. The room was comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the manager reception each night and the cook to order breakfast is a real treat, and the food was good and you had excellent choices. I would recommend this Hotel to families and anyone who was looking for a good clean, friendly place to stay in the DC area. The Metro Station being right across from the Hotel is also a big bonus. Also would like to mention that the hotel offers a free shuttle to Old Town and that is also a bonus. Overall out stay was awesome.

The Embassy Suites Old Town Alexandria is a great place for either business or vacation travel. Breakfast is fabulous, with optional cooked to order items prepared by a wonderful lady with a smile for everyone! The atrium is suitable for a business gathering or a place to sit back and relax. Historic King Street is just a couple of blocks, and the Metro to go into DC is just across the street.

This hotel is one of the best I have been to in a long time. The hotel as well as the staff are great. I had no complaints for my entire stay. And I must say the buffet style breakfast is awesome! This hotel is a must!

This Hilton family hotel has excellent service and accomodations. A great plus is the easy access to old town King Street's restaurants and vendors. Also, it is located right across the street from the Metro and bus stops.

We booked this suite for an after gala sleepover. The three of us enjoyed the rooms; they were very clean. The hotel was quiet. In the morning we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the atrium and then spent some time in the hot tub and the saltwater swimming pool. The big king bed was comfy! I would definitely stay here again, especially with its proximity to Old Town.
