My family stayed at the Embassy Suites in Crystal City, a hotel I choose because of the location, price and most of all the amenities. After our drive there we anticipated having a relaxing time in the pool, prior to a grueling evening of events. I was dismayed to find the pool was unavailable between 1 and 4 pm. When I inquired as to why the pool was not open I was told it was due to the lack of a Life Guard. This is the first hotel I stayed at that did not have a swim at your own risk policy. I found this timeframe and reason to be extremely unsatisfactory. I also was looking forward to the free continental breakfast, only to find out that on weekends it opens after 7:00am. My daughter needed to be in downtown DC to participate in the 101 annual Cherry Blossom Parade by 7:45am, so we needed to be on the DC Metro by 7:00am . The Hotel was not accommodating to compensate us for breakfast prior to that time. All of this made my stay at that Hotel unsatisfactory.
