“Great hotel for family gatherings”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This hotel has a large, good looking, entry area with plenty of space for
families to meet. Free wine and beer and light snacks in the late afternoon.
Breakfast is included but can get crowded. It is self serve. It includes an station to order eggs and pancakes. There is seating inside the reception area and also in the outside patio beyond the glass doors.The pool area is large enough for swimming, plus there was a life guard on
duty when we used it.
The suites are spacious, and clean. The staff is helpful, and friendly.
The location is very good.
It is across the street from Metro to Washington. Its
around the corner and a very short walk from the Amtrak station. Metro
passes are available at the Transit station up the block from the hotel.
The free trolley goes to the heart of Old Town. The restaurant down the
block from the hotel is fine. This hotel was great place for a family to visit.

We have stayed here on and off for years as a half-way stopover on the way from Boston to Outer Banks. This year was by far the best; we could tell all the care and money that has gone into renovations and upgrading, including new bathrooms, beds, bedding and main lobby restaurants. It was so comfortable and Such a luxury stay for the low price, I can't imagine why a family visiting DC would stay anywhere else.

I am not one to normally write a review.. and whenever I can I always try to stay at an Embassy Suite.. Travelling with my family to Mytle Beach (wif and 3 kids) I over nighted at this hotel.. This hotel really surpassed my already high high expectations. The cleanliness was above par, the staff prompt and friendly, check in quick and painless. I recommend to try the restaurant.. Great food!.. Breakfast was awesome. Overall.. All Embasy Suites should be this good!

Great location with fantastic access to Washington via the metro opposite. Clean, comfortable and a great happy hour which saved our lives after an exhausting day of sightseeing. On the doorstep, Alexandria was a lovely surprise too and the free trolley bus was a welcome addition.

This hotel is directly across the street from the metro station. It is on the far end of King Street though--so 18 blocks or so to the water in Alexandria. The hotel is clean, and the suites are nice. The evening reception is wonderful! Breakfast was good and very sufficient. I do not think you should have to pay for internet at a hotel of this rate. Some of the receptionists were quite pleasant; one was not.

Thank You for the feedback on your recent stay with us. I hope our staff shared with you many of the transportation conveniences like the King Street Trolley with rides all of King Street free of charge and the hotel shuttle which gladly escorts guest within a 2 mile radius of the hotel. These 2 services make the 18 blocks of King Street a little more bearable! We hope you get to experience them on your next visit with us. Thank You.

I travel frequently to the area for business and this location has the perfect combination of comfort and business friendly accommodations in the room. The large work table with excellent lighting was perfect for getting things done. The hotel and rooms are perfectly maintained so that there are no aggravations upon arrival, you can get right down to business.

Had four nights at this hotel and can't rave enough about the outstanding staff and service. Our room was perfect with a view of the Masonic Temple and the metro station. Since we were on vacation it was fun to watch all the commuters take the metro/bus/train in the mornings while sipping coffee in our room.

The hotel room was excellent, possibly remodeled recently, however the public areas of the hotel need a bit sprucing up. The breakfast menu (comes with room) was fresh with good variety and again, the Staff, on their toes. BUT the big drawback was the organization of the set up of the breakfast food areas. It did not move smoothly and guests were walking into each other trying to get to the coffee or juice bar, etc. This area really needs some serious revamping.

I'm pleased to hear our service was a WOW factor for you and your guest suite was wonderful in appearance. While these were good comments I would like to acknowledge your comments about our breakfast serving area. I appreciate the feedback and I look forward to working with my food and beverage staff for some ideas to improve guest flow. Thank You.
