    Years ago we were drawn to this hotel due to it's location and price/value. Since then, it is the only place we stay because of the quality of the rooms and the excellence of the staff and service. The manager's reception and outstanding breakfast are extras that bring Old Town Embassy Suites to the very top of the list. The recent upgrades of the restaurant and garden areas look great by the way. Keep up the good work.

    After spending much of my life navigating with a map and compass, I still have a hard time finding my way out of the parking garage.

    Comfortable bed, great location, very clean. Breakfast was good not great. Staff in dining area was fabulous.

    Would have preferred a lower price but it's NOVA so it is expected.

    Birds in atrium dropping bits of nest in breakfast food. It just can't be a healthy thing.

    The managers reception is a very nice touch. The bartenders were very friendly. It rained on July 4th so I was very happy we picked this hotel. Having a cocktail while it poured outside definitely helped take away the blues. The breakfast was outstanding! The best a hotel could offer. Many choices.

    I asked for a higher floor during my reservation. I even called back in the middle of the week to confirm I still showed for the higher floor. When I arrived I was told I was on the 2nd floor. I was very disappointed but didn't want this to ruin my stay so I got over it. The staff apologized for the oversight.

    Location was very convenient to the metro so it made sightseeing in DC so easy. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and nice.

    Pool did not look like what is depicted in the picture. It is a small pool but we still enjoyed it.

    The staff is very pleasant and helpful - very nice people. The food is fine and the location can't be beat. I first came here in 1987, and it still offers a great accommodation for a fair (not cheap) price.

    The exercise room has lots of treadmills, but no rowing machine and the universal machine is outdated; the elliptical needed servicing. The carpeting is really getting old and a bit worn. But the location is great and the staff very helpfu.

    Great location to metro and old alexandria!

    The staff at the front desk was not friendly at all. They dont have a shuttle anymore to the waterfront but their room information booklet still says they do. When we called to ask about it, the front desk staff was rude and acted like it was something they never offered. When questioned, the shuttle was discontinued two weeks before. Change your booklet.

    Bed was very comfortable and we love the breakfast. Our favorite was the location next to the metro. We took the train into DC spontaneously as many of our party had not visited before. Perfect!

    Prepared eggs were runny

    Excellent location for a DC vacation - right across from the metro. The free Trolley down King street was awesome for evenings out for dinner and down to the river. The hotel is a block from Whole Foods, which has a great hot bar for dinner there or in the room, and CVS for any forgotten extras. Breakfast and Happy Hour were excellent. The hotel was quiet, even with school groups staying there.

    I think the pull out sofa was ok, decent enough for kids but not for adults.

    The staff was very helpful and allowed me to check into my room early. The breakfast and happy hours were a really nice touch. The rooms were large and I found that even though it was crowded the hotel wasn't loud at night. The location is ideal if you are looking to commute via the Metro.

    The bathrooms could use an upgrade
