“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I've been going to Emabssy Suites chain hotels for the past 14 years and I have never seen a pool lifeguard until I went to this one. I was pleasantly surprised. He introduced himself to everyone and even gave pool toys and life jackets to any kids that were in and around the pool area. It was wonderful! The staff as always were very friendly and helpful but the pool guy (Mr. Charles) makes that place shine like gold. Food,excellent. Not a long line for breakfast,so it doesnt feel like you're standing in line at disney world waiting to get food. Rooms,clean and big as always. They even have swans in the middle of the hotel instead of koi fish like the other Embassy suites. Nice touch. I've felt like I've found a little hidden resort instead of a regular ES. I can't wait to get back here and stay again.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with Embassy Suites because all the rooms are suites. Large livingroom with a fol...

The room was very spacious. However the AC was working very hard and not cooling very well. Also the door to the bedroom was hard to open and close and very loud when doing so. The sliding door to the bathroom was also difficult to operate. One elevator was out out of order during part of our stay.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The swans in the lobby provide entertainment for children but I feel sorry for them because their environment is so small.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are more spacious.

Green Features: Did not see recycling containers. Would like to have one in the room.

I spent three nights at this hotel in mid-July 2014. The staff was great very friendly and helpful. Check in was painless, the room was very clean and comfortable. The pool attendant was very patient and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to any one travelling through the Dulles/DC area on Business or Pleasure.

Also this hotel which belongs to the Hilton Group has its plus and minus. I was staying two nights here and before the night in the Hyatt Dulles Airport close by. I would prefer this hotel though slightly over the Hyatt Dulles.

Plus
+ Very friendly staff
+ Very large and modern rooms with living room, small kitchen, microwave, Full HD TV
+ Second Full HD TV in the sleeping room (both rooms are separated by a door)
+ Bathroom clean
+ Excellent food - not world class but good
+ Very nice General Manager and FB Manager!
+ Shuttle is leaving every 30 min to airport and from airport. Driver very welcoming and friendly

Minus
- Internet is a nightmare slow and chargeable (Internet at Hayatt Dulles is super fast and free)
- Not even a single water bottle inside the room. Not even chargeable. You have to go to the reception.
- No vanity kid, toothbrush, shaver in the room but on request
- If you are used to Hilton Standard take care. This is 3* Hotel and it really is. Lovely but 3*. Just to mention it.
- I am not sure the Swans in the restaurant are feeling that well. Even they have a big area to look at.
- If you land early thats your problem. No early checkin (Hayatt Dulles was no problem. Room was ready at 08:00 hrs in the morning)

Dear Valued Guest,

I really appreciate your feedback! I would like to "Thank you" for the recommendation and appreciate your the key points made on the pros and cons. We at the Embassy Dulles love to hear our guests feedback even if its not always great so it gives us a chance to improve and to step it up. I do apologize for the flaws with the internet, bottled water and no early check in. I did want to bring to your attention that we have looked into the internet issue which has been resolved. Also, the bottled water is provided to every Hilton Honors member upon check in and I do apologize if you are a member and did not receive one upon check in. On the early check in, we do allow early check ins, however it is soley based on availability. I do apologize that we were not able to get you in early. We do hope that the cons mentioned do not keep you from choosing our hotel in the future.

Thank you,

Luis Kuglitsch

I have grown very accustomed to staying at Embassy Suites. Typically, you really can't go wrong with this brand. Not saying that each one is perfect, because I have stayed at a couple that have had their fair share of issues. But, on an average I have not had any major issues. Take for instance the Embassy Suites Dulles Airport. I stayed here while attending a concert (BRUNO MARS ROCKS)! This is a very nice location. If you are traveling, it is not far from Dulles Airport at all. It is within minutes of Tysons Corner and other local attractions. There are many restaurants nearby. Fast food and full service. I was really surprised to see George & Martha, the swans that reside here. They are beautiful! This is the first time I stayed on the Premium floor. Very nice. The décor is a little more swank than the norm. They have a Keurig for those of you who like that hit of caffeine in the morning. The pool is a little small, but nice. The lobby is a little bigger than some of the other properties as well. Very nice during the Manager's reception. More choice of seating. One note on a staff member. From the moment I checked in to the moment I checked out, Yuri Leiva, the front desk customer service agent, greeted me with a smile and provided great service! I will stay here again!

Room Tip: Premium rooms are very spacious.

I've been down to this hotel a few times with friends and every visit is great. The hotel is beautiful with its swans and large bamboo trees right in the main lobby. The staff are always very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is located within walking distance of a few restaurants and shops that are right down the road, or you could always order from the hotel itself; they also have a large breakfast menu which is great. The rooms are clean and the beds are nice. It's always a great stay and we will be visiting again.

The rooms were clean and spacious - two separate areas for the adults and the kids. The interior hallways were visible from all spots, so we could see our children walking around the halls. That made it feel safe to give them a bit more freedom.
Breakfast was delicious and the lady making omelets was efficient and pleasant. The waitstaff were also pleasant and prompt in picking up dirty plates, one gentleman that was at breakfast yesterday morning, served room service last night and was here again this morning did a wonderful job [I could not see his name tag, but he was tall, maybe in his early fifties]. Pilar also did a good job this morning with cleaning the table as we finished with a plate.
Best of all was Mr. Charles at the swimming pool. He was great with the kids and informed them of the safety rules and was consistent and fair when the rules were broken and he followed through. It was wonderful to have a lifeguard on duty even though we still stayed with our children while they were swimming. We say Mr. Charles at Breakfast and he remembered the kids names and he also was talking with other people who had been at the pool the day before. It felt like he really cared. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor. We could not hear any noise above us or from the common areas on the m...
