“Great place to stay”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Central location to Metro and fine dining area makes it a great location. So if your looking for a place to stay to tour the Washington, DC area, this is the place to stay. I do not need 200 characters to show how much we like this hotel.

Hotel is in perfect location, in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. It is also across from the metro and VRE which makes DC very accessible. Rooms are newly renovated and spacious. Restaurant is excellent and breakfast buffet is extensive. Have celebrated several events here and have always been well taken care of. Would highly recommend this place!

Embassy Suites in Alexandria is a nice hotel. The service at the front desk is not great, but adequate. For instance, when I asked where the gym was located, I was correctly told that it was located on the 3rd floor; however, there were no signs indicating the location of the gym, and the only way to get access to it is by going through the pool room, which was not explained to me during my inquiry, leaving me to believe that the person working at the front desk did not have complete knowledge as to the gym's exact location within the hotel. The free breakfast every morning is VERY good, particularly the food made to order. The cook making breakfast was extremely friendly and personable, and a joy to interact with. The parking at this hotel is absolutely ATROCIOUS though, and I have heard MANY people in the parking garage complaining about how they've never encountered such HORRIBLE parking. The parking spots are all extremely tight, which is maximized by the posts which not only take up space in the parking, but are slanted and look like they're about to collapse. It is extremely difficult to park in this garage, as one time I actually had to get out of my car through the passenger side because there wasn't enough room to get out through the drivers side. I also scraped the side of my rental car against a post because it was in the way of my parking space. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! The entire parking garage needs to be redone! Other than that, Embassy Suites is conveniently located near the metro, so if you don't have to drive, I wouldn't recommend it. To many parking issues here. Particularly for a garage you have to pay $28 for per day, and you'll be lucky if you can even find a good spot.

Everything about our stay at this hotel was excellent. The employees were very nice, the breakfast and free drinks in the evening were above and beyond the usual hotel experience. The convenience to the metro station (an EASY walk across the street) and the trolley service were big pluses as well. No complaints -we would definitely stay here again and recommend others to do the same.

Hotel is very clean and wonderful for families. Easily located close to the interstate with easy access and parking garage. Tips:

1. If you have a cartop carrier, take it off your car at check in. The hotel has a storage area you can 'check' it into. It WILL NOT make it into the parking garage due to low clearance. (we have a Buick Enclave, maybe a sedan would be ok.)

2. Not the greatest indoor pool, but not bad. Lifeguard on duty...sort of.

3. Breakfast is great. Short order cooks are amazing. Omelets to order, pancakes, french toast, turkey sausage, bagels, fruit, oatmeal bar with raisins, brown sugar, etc. Excellent breakfast IMO for a included meal.

4. Manager's reception great. Totally packed, lively and spirits-a-flowin' With family of five, free beers, shirley temples, and snacks were great. Bar tenders/lobby staff great.

5. AWESOME location to get on Metro for DC sightseeing. This is why we booked it and it was well worth it. Can't get easier to get on/off, it practically outside the front door.

While on a recent trip to Washington, D.C. to see the National Zoo and the Cherry Blossom Festival, we stayed at the Embassy Suites Alexandria-Old Town. Our family very much enjoyed our time at this hotel! The King St. Metro Station is JUST across the street (we're talking a walk of less than 1/2 a block to board the train), the hotel is very well-maintained and had all of the amenities we hope for when traveling with small children - indoor pool, free hot breakfast, and a suite-style room that allowed the children their own "area" (and their own television), while still keeping them with us. We would certainly stay at this hotel again.
