Map & Directions

The Embassy Row Hotel is a 15-minute drive from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and a taxi costs approximately $30. From Dulles International Airport, the hotel is 40 minutes by car and the fare costs nearly $95, so renting a car may be a better option.

Named one of USA Today's Best New Hotels upon its reopening in 2015 after a major renovation, the 4-star Embassy Row Hotel overlooks buzzing Dupont Circle and is just a block from the metro stop, offering guests easy access to Washington’s top sights.

Grab your daily caffeine fix from the hotel’s coffee shop and take a morning walk along Millionaire’s Row, surrounding yourself with historic embassies and grand mansions before heading out to explore more of D.C. A one-block walk to the Dupont Circle Metro gives guests easy access to the nation's most iconic monuments within a 20-minute metro ride.

After a day of sightseeing, retreat to newly renovated rooms all featuring bright decor, Keurig coffeemakers and 42-inch flat-panel TVs. Standard rooms are on the smaller side but still quite comfortable, while Deluxe rooms add some space and both have interior views of the property. Guests who upgrade to Deluxe City View rooms get a great skyline view of Dupont Circle and the surrounding neighborhood. 

During warmer months, guests can take in the sunset on The Rooftop, offering panoramic views of the capital from the hotel's 10th story (usually open May-September); guests have free access to soak in the pool, kick back in a cabana or sip a drink at the bar, while non-guests pay a $30 day pass. It can get crowded on weekends, though, so grab a chair as early as possible. If you're planning on toting the kids to the pool, you'll want to look elsewhere -- it's adults-only when the bar is open.

Beyond that, there are plenty of other perks: Wi-Fi is available throughout, the hotel is pet-friendly with no fees and in-room spa treatments are available. Guests can also drop in on a rooftop morning yoga class, use the fitness center 24 hours a day or hang out in the hotel's "adult playground" with foosball, shuffleboard and pingpong games. You can learn more about the hotel's amenities as well as surrounding Dupont Circle attractions in this video.

The pool area and location in the city
Other Comments
The decor was a little dated and could use some upgrading. They also overbooked and had to stay in a double with an internal view for one night instead of the queen with a city view that we booked.

AC was VERY loud. It worked well but woke us up throughout the night and was hard to talk over during the day.

The location fit our needs. The hotel and room were very clean. Service was polite and prompt. If decor styles bother you, you may not like this hotel. Its style is, I don't know, 70s?? bed headboard and wall are an aqua blue naugahyde, bedside tables are geometric shapes, the lamps bases were thick, chrome-like material. The lobby/restaurant/bar areas were done in similar decor. Not really my style, but since it was clean and comfortable, I can't say too much negative about it. Oh, the bathroom was very clean, but very small.
