GREAT hotel!from ChicagoTraveler
I wasn't expecting that much because usually hotels so conveniently located to a large event place don't have to be that nice, you're paying for the convenient location. Happily, this Embassy Suites doesn't subscribe to that rule--it's great! Spotless, very nice rooms and to a T, one of the nicest staffs I've ever encountered. (Only one hiccup--I reserved a non smoking suite and didn't get it. The hotel was sold out, so I went to the CVS in Chinatown and got some Oust air freshener and it worked so well, I won't travel without it from now on!)
Also, one of my pet peeves is when you stay in a suite for 4 people and they don't give you enough towels. That was quickly remedied here, and the maid even left extras each of the days without me having to ask again.
Very nice breakfast buffet included in price of suite and helpful concierges for tour information that you can book right there. Also, there are 3 computers off the lobby which are very convenient for looking up tour stuff on your own and checking email.
All in all, a great stay!
Very pleased and quite luckyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We flew into Reagan Airport, and took the yellow metro line to the Mt. Vernon stop. It was about a 10 minute walk from the stop to our hotel. We found this to be quite manageable with only two pieces of luggage.
The hotel is quite new, and everything looked fresh and current. The suite set-up was very convenient. As you walk through the door into your room, there is a living area with sofa, chair, end tables, desk and tv. The bedroom had a comfortable bed with lots of pillows and also another tv. The room was very, very quiet. We found this set-up to be perfect, as my husband slept a bit later than I, so I was able to go into the living area and watch the morning news, while wrapped in the thick terry robe that was in the room.
Each morning the hotel offers a free breakfast with made-to-order omelets and many other breakfast options. I know that some other advisors mentioned that the breakfast area can get quite crowded and they found it difficult to find a place to sit. We didn't run into this at all, but perhaps it could have been the particular weekend that we were there.
There is also a free manager's reception in the evening that offers free drinks and munchies. This was very nice after a long day of touring and before going out to dinner.
There is a Circulator bus stop not far from the hotel. This is a wonderful way to get to the mall area, and a wonderful way to get back to the hotel, when it seems that your feet just can't walk another step.
With the hotel offering the free breakfast, free drinks, a pleasant staff and very nice and new accomodations, my husband and I feel that this was an excellent value, and would surely want to stay here again.
Great place in the Districtfrom oldbokers
nice place perfect for familiesfrom fleishmo6
We started out with a tour of the white house, proceeded to see one of the Imax movies at the museum went to the espn zone for lunch then to the spy museum all within walking distance. The breakfast was good not to crowded, staff was very helpful with directions to all of the sites. Our family will stay here again next trip to D.C.
Enjoyed our stay - would stay here again!from Odymom
Overall, we were pleased with the hotel accommodations, location, and services.
We had a king suite for $149/night.
1) The concierge was very helpful in giving us info on the Monuments by Moonlight tour options, directions to various places, and also asked us how things went when we'd see him in the lobby.
2) Everything was new, wonderful beds, pillows, and linen. Had a real hair dryer - not one of those little ones attached to the walls. There was Bath and Body Works shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap. Big bathtub/shower, massage shower head.
3) Complementary breakfast - sufficient for quick bite before heading out. Plenty of tables. The cooked-to-order breakfast was held in the restaurant, Finn and Porter. It was hectic there but it was over the spring break/Easter weekend, so I think it would have been hectic every where. The buffet food was OK and because it didn't vary from day to day, I got tired of the selections by the third morning.
4) Although the hotel was crowded, we never had to wait long for an elevator.
5) My husband and kids enjoyed the pool every afternoon. I didn't even see the pool area because I napped while they swam. The kids made friends and said swimming in the pool was their favorite part of the trip.
1) No free internet access. There were three laptops in a kiosk-type structure (you have to stand to use the laptop, so people don't stay on it all day!) in the lobby, which was constantly in use. I got to use it once and it was at midnight.
2) Not enough valet attendants to handle the crowd of people checking out. We waited over 30 minutes to get our car. Fortunately, we were going to Mount Vernon that day instead of trying to get to the airport.
Extremely Satisfiedfrom TravlAndy
Chose the hotel because it's close to the courthouse where I am doing business. Recently stayed at Ritz Carlton, pentagon city. Loved that hotel, but not conducive to business stay on a budget. ES has coffee makers, cooked brkfst & great rooms.
Check in a breeze. Room too hot. A/C not very effective. Engineer shows ASAP & he is unsatisifed, so HE takes care of getting moved a few rooms down. (I like it cold in my room) New room is as promised, nice & cold :)
I don't know what the poster is talking about as far as the breakfast or the manager's reception. The breakfast is great. There's an "express" where there's only a few things you cannot get. The 'cooked to order" area is ample & quick.
Manager's reception, *plenty of room* both upstairs & down, quick line & no complaints about multiple orders. This, during a Painters Union Convention!
The rooms are huge -- what I love about all ES, or maybe I've spent too much time in Europe.
Decor, pleasing, great amenities -- Bath & Body Works toiletries, *five* pillows on King bed - unusual.
They do have strangely place vents in the bedroom area which allows noise from next room in -- could hear kids laughing & TV -- but earplugs I religiously travel with came in handy.
No noise from room above. Hate you can hear doors slamming, but this too, at the Ritz. BUT with ES, you're asleep a room away if you close the bedroom door. Must be some hotel thing to make sure doors shut.
Oh, and disappointed no weight equipment in fitness center BUT LOVE 24 hour access. Ritz opened at 5:30. Huh? who can workout & get to business matters that late?
A 3 block walk to Chinatown/Penn Quarter, lots of restaurants, Metro stop. Up 10th street is Ford Theater & gorgeous St. Pat's. very good spot & I felt very safe, even walking alone as a woman when it was dark, albeit only 9:00 p.m.
Very happy with our stay at the Embassy Suites- Convention Centerfrom patmarietta8
The Only Good Thing is the Spacious Roomfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I had extended my stay for a few days due to a business committment and called the front desk to arrange this. I was told over the phone that I was all set. That same evening, I went to get a new key at the front desk. They told me that they had no idea about my "extension" and proceeded to tell me that they were sold out and couldn't accomodate me. I had to practically start crying and begged for them to extend my stay since I had cancelled my reservation at the Marriott. All I know is if you have a choice stay at the Hampton Inn around the corner. It's a much better place!
Very Nice...3/23-3/27from tourandtravel
Top Local Tips for Washington
Metro The metro is strick about eating and drinking. So be advised.
Smithsonian Museums...t Go early......very crowded... food expensive - bring snacks....eat elsewhere....
DC Ducks and Trolleys Buy tickets online ahead of time. We were there a very busy week, and they were not selling tix at Union Station until later in the day, for fear there were too many people. We got to Union Station at 9am, and were able to get on the first Duck tour at 11am.
