Embassy Suites Washington— Convention Center

This Embassy Suites is still relatively new, built in 2005.

As the name, Embassy Suites, implies, you get a lot of space for your money. Even the smallest room option, the king suite, is two rooms and includes a living area with a pullout sofa, dining area, and kitchen with a microwave, refrigerator, and cooking supplies. Corner rooms are larger, with more windows and a roomier living area.

The clientele is split between convention center business and families. A free breakfast is served in the lobby restaurant, and a free managers reception takes place daily from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and includes free drinks.

The tall atrium entrance, like most Embassy Suites, features a water element—in this case, a waterfall. The feel is open and friendly.

Convenient Internet kiosks line a side hallway; there is also an indoor pool and fitness center for guest use.

Room amenities: Hair dryer, iron and ironing board, microwave, refrigerator, 27-inch cable TV, seating area with sofa/sofa bed, in-suite coffee
