Especially the employees at the reception desk were very friendly. The Hotel itself was located not too far from Capitol Hill and the Room was more than appropriate!

We stayed in a tiny and smelly room which seemed to be last refurbished last century. Breakfast was a joke, go find a cafe nearby if you have time and budget. Excellent location, though!

Personnel at the hotel was rarely friendly or willing to help.


They did not have my reservation on record, and didn't have a room. After 45 minutes, they had us walk 20 min in the rain to a partner hotel. The partner hotel did not have a working shower or fridge.


As per the web site break fast was included in the cost, but hotel charge US$5 for every days breakfast. As per the agreement i have to pay only US$183.60, but Hotel Embassy Inn took $ 216 from me. You are requested to credit my Deposit US$32.40 at the earliest.
