Great location, only 2 metro stops from DCA airport on the yellow line. Amtrak station is just on the other side of the King Street Metro station, which takes you directly to Baltimore airport. The train trip was $27 one way to the BWI from King Street. Amtrak has a free bus shuttle to drop you off right in front of Southwest Airlines.

Cooked to order full breakfast every morning. The hotel rooms are like a small condo, which is great, in case someone in your party wants to nap, just close the bedroom door, and the other party can sit/work in the small living room/dining room area. The hotel has a courtesy shuttle up to 2 miles.

Unique Quality: The King Street Trolly is FREE! It takes you up and down King Street, all the way to the water, where you can catch a water taxi to go to Baltimore Harbor, or the Gaylord Hotel. We went for brunch at the Gaylord Hotel for Mother's Day, the food was FABULOUS! Lot's of cool shops up and down King Street, cobblestone/brick sidewalks. Ton's of great little places to eat. Ate at the Flying Fish sushi/seafood restaurant, definitely going back! Wonderful food.

Directions: Yellow line on the Metro, 2 stops from DCA airport

Only 2 stops off the metro line from DCA airport, 8 minute trip, can't beat that to the airport! The hotel is directly across from the metro station, can't miss it! It was nice to walk down King Street, lots of great little shops, coffee houses, all kinds of different cuisines. Found a wonderful restaurant just off King street that was old colonial style, great food. Was looking forward to walking back to the hotel but there was a torrential thunderstorm, so we had to take a taxi. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Unique Quality: Hotel staff was wonderful. I needed a cork screw and they gave me one to keep. Great big breakfast every morning, as it is included. Also has a neat user friendly kiosk that one can find restaurants in the area, all within walking distances.

Directions: Yellow & Blue line of the Washington DC Metro system.... King Street Metro Station is the stop... also has parking at this station....

The Embassy Suites in Old Town, Alexandria is located directly across from the King Street Station, approximately 18 blocks to the Old Town waterfront. Rooms are large, 2 room suites with a small refrigerator and coffeemaker. Two televisions and a fold-out sofa bed make this a nice spot if you’re traveling with a family. In the off-season, prices start at about $130 a night, reasonable for this level of quality in the area.

The hotel offers breakfast and a happy hour with the room. A swimming pool, restaurant and gift shop are included in the facilities. The only downfall I found was the wireless internet cost extra. A small business center is located in the lobby for free internet access, but not exactly convenient for a business traveler.

Rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. Even the lifeguard at the pool was understanding when my 3 year old nephew started sinking.

Parking is expensive in the hotel garage, but weekend parking on the street is free after 5pm on Friday.

Embassy Suites Hotel Alexandria-Old Town

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Embassy Suites is a nice hotel at the edge of old town. It stands just across the street from King Street Station, about 17 blocks from the Old Town Waterfront. Rooms at this Hilton property are $130 to $230 in the off-season. The hotel has free nightly cocktails and free breakfast, and it has a restaurant, swimming pool, and fitness center. Self parking is $24 a day.

My family stayed here during a recent visit to Old Town. We tried to get adjoining rooms, but no luck; the best they could do was two rooms side-by-side. Rooms cost about $150 a night for huge suites with two beds, large living rooms, and tiny kitchenettes. Since parking is so expensive, my family parked their cars on the street in the Carlyle area, where parking is free on nights and weekends. While staying here we walked to dinner on King Street and over to Whole Foods just a block away, behind the hotel. The kids also enjoyed the swimming pool, which was conveniently located on the third floor just five doors away from our rooms.

This is a great hotel for families and business travelers. Maybe a little expensive, but the location is excellent for exploring Old Town or DC.

Stayed here april 2008. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The buffet breakfast was better than most other 'free" breakfasts. The most outstanding feature was its proximity to the metro -- right across the street!

Unique Quality: The hotel is quiet. It offers a free shuttle downtown to the shops and restaurants and we were able to call for a pick up. On weekends Alexandria has a free trolley that stops at the metro station across from the hotel entrance. The only (minor) annoyance was having to pay $18 for parking in a less than adequate garage under the hotel. There were limited parking spots and many spaces were too narrow to accomodate a fullsize american car. I would deffinately stay here again on a trip to Washington DC. It was very convenient to take the metro into the city.

Suite hotel. I was fortunate to be referred to this hotel by another hotel (Sheraton Crystal City) who lost my reservation the day before the Marine Corps Marathon. My room was able to block out the light and the soundproof windows eliminated sounds from the inner terrace as well outside noise during the night. Location was also used as a sight for a wedding reception. Overall my experience was pleasant since the staff understood my dilemma with what the Sheraton put me through.

Directions: Shuttle to Old Town or within 2 mile radius of hotel. Across from the King Street metro (blue or yellow line)
