Located within walking distance to the Pentagon and several restaurants and shops, this all-suite hotel is also only three blocks from a Metro station which gives families easy access to the National Mall, Smithsonian Museums and the White House. A free airport shuttle is available to guests with a reservation as well. An indoor pool, which is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, is a great place for kids to play after a day of exploring Washington D.C. and parents can relax at the surround chairs and tables. The spacious suites feature a king or two double beds, a wet bar with a microwave, a mini-fridge, separate living room area with a sleeper sofa and two flat screen televisions. Wi-Fi access is available as well but for a fee. Families can start off their day of D.C. exploring with the free, cook-to-order breakfast and full bellies up with things like omelets, fruit or cereal.

Very cold room, even turning up the heat the room stayed cold.. blowing cold air out. I also invited a couple and they had the same problem. I also stay at this hotel and experienced this two other times. Yes
Using the Hilton app to check in, digital key, as well as the linked Lyft app was perfect! This made all the processes so much smoother, much more efficient. The location was great regardless that we were in the middle of a busy city area. The shuttle runs every 20 minutes to and from the airport. The shuttle will also take you to local, Crystal city area shopping. We (my spouse, myself, 2 children ages 17 and 13) stayed in the king bedroom suite with a pullout bed. Our room was very comfortable, clean and both kids had plenty of room. We were able to request a fan for our room as an extra blanket for our kids with quick response.
The evening reception was nice, easy to get a beverage from the bar by showing your room key. Our kids were able to enjoy chips, salsa, cheese dip, apples, and caramel one night with veggies, ranch dressing, and potato chips the next. We skipped our 3rd night of the reception.
The breakfast was good selection for all: eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, donuts/pastries, fruit , cereal, and yogurt bar. Coffee, tea, soda, and juices to choose from as well. We did not order food from the restaurant nor order room service, but did enjoy a nice walk down to 23rd street for some local atmosphere.
Arlington national cemetery was a 5 minute Lyft ride (Friday 9 a.m.)and DC National Mall area 7-8 minutes (Saturday 9/930 am.). We had a rental car for our trip to Georgetown, but even with Sunday afternoon (1 pm) traffic it was only 10/12 minutes to Clydes’- from Embassy Suites.
We would definitely stay again!
