“Easy Metro ride to DC”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This hotel worked well for our recent trip to DC with our 14 year old. We loved the fact that he could stay up and watch TV when my husband and I were ready to go to bed. We were not very impressed with the restaurants in walking distance. While some were very good (Brabo,) they were not necessarily great with a 14 year old. King Street restaurants seemed to cater to a more mature crowd.
Our one complaint would be that the "premium access" to refreshments is only a pair of vending machine with a few snacks and a few drinks - and the drinks one either never would dispense the water, or was out of water. We had expected the availability of a piece of fresh fruit, and easy access to bottled water.

Nice hotel, very well appointed and cared for. Great location, right across from the Metro King St. Station. The issue is that the staff aren't helpful at all. They rarely smile and are rude to the guests. When asked to help, they say "it's against hotel policy to give change for the vending machines". Will not stay here again. There were two groups of school kids there at the time we were there, they were extremely loud, running up and down the halls till all hours of the night. And there was a very drunk group of people in the room next door to us who were partying hardy till 2 or 3 am. Hard to sleep with all that going on.

With so many wonderful things to see in DC, we were rarely at the hotel. When we were, the breakfast was appreciated. The pool was great after a long day of sightseeing. It didn't open until 5, so forewarn your children. We are repeat visitors to this hotel due to its great location, walk to Old Town, and a Fresh Market next door.

When reservations were made, I asked to have my room clode to the bridal guest (if not right next to). I was 2 floors and more away from bridal party . It made it very difficult to get dressed for the wedding.

Thank you for your review. I can appreciate your disappointment about not being close to the bridal party for this special event. It is unfortunate that we were not able to accommodate your request, but hope that this will not affect your decision to return to our hotel in the future.

The hotel was clean, friendly and had good sized rooms. The breakfast buffet had great options, was fully stocked and was well run. The location was quaint and has a Whole foods across the street. A great lobby to relax and enjoy a drink or play a game.

We stayed at the Embassy Suites with our granddaughters for a week while we visited all the sites in the area - leaving right from the subway station right across the street. Our stay was WONDERFUL in ALL areas - beginning with the GREAT location to come and go from!! The hotel was clean throughout, our room was spacious with comfortable beds, and the service was AWESOME - always given with a smile and willingness to truly be accommodating!! The morning breakfast was a SUPER way to begin our day with NUMEROUS choices for all of us to savor! The ability to ask for special orders i.e. omelets and turkey sausage was way beyond typical hotel breakfast offerings. And the "Happy Hour" was a DELIGHTFUL way to end our very busy days with yummy snacks and choice of drinks! We DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to all - and if we are back in the area we will CERTAINLY be back ourselves!!!

This IS THE CLOSEST hotel to the King St. Metro. Literally across the street. Very easy commute to any of the sights in DC. You can walk or take the free trolley (stop in front of the Metro) to everything in Old Town. Made to order breakfast was delicious. Manager's reception was a welcome break for snacks and drinks after a busy day sight-seeing and before dinner. If you are planning to visit DC, this is a safe, comfortable, and FUN place to stay.
