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.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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 staff at the cafe was very friendly. The location of the hotel is great. Walking distance to the metro and the farmer's market on the next block on Sunday.

The amount of noise at night. There was a party group of girls who stayed on my floor and they were partying until 3am. I had sent a text since that was how they communicated with me and asked me to inform them of any problems. There were no follow-ups.

Other Comments
The staff was not very knowledgeable about the area and couldn't help with most of our questions. The menu is extremely limited!! The rooftop restaurant and pool were not available for guests because of private parties. Since the temps were in the high 90's for our whole stay so use of the pool would have been wonderful! Don't advertise a pool if it's not available. There was no information book in the room that listed TV channels, restaurant hours, local churches or transportation, emergency exits, emergency numbers-even within the hotel, etc. when I asked about it they said they are "working on it". I believe it will be a great hotel once they get their act together!
