Older hotel with limited amenities. Underground parking has very poor signage and it was difficult to find the hotel entrance. Hot breakfast not provided even though website advertised it. Friendly staff.

I would not recommend this hotel as it smelled like marijuana the staff was unable to answer basic parking questions. Our toilet backed up and I was told there was no maintenance. Our first room smelled so bad we had to change rooms, even the second room still smelled like marijuana. The breakfast was a apple, granola bar and orange juice. Nothing was as good as expected or as good as experienced in the past.
Breathtaking Atrium Lobby

The roomy suites, recreation facilities, and free breakfast of this hotel are all great perks.
However, nothing about the Embassy Suites Chevy Chase is better than the site that meets your eyes as soon as you walk through the door.
Look at that lobby.
The stunningly massive indoor atrium features a sun-washed skylight ceiling topping off several breakfast and living spaces amidst eight tiers of balcony hallways. Lest a weary traveler forgets he has just entered the nation’s capital, a three-story-tall American flag hangs from the rafters.
The beds here are wonderfully comfy, as are the three pillows on each bed. Every suite has its own living room, table, bar, microwave, mini fridge, and two large flat-screen TVs. Nice looking wooden floors and local, patriotic artwork create a sleek yet comfortable environment.
The breakfast buffet is closed down for COVID, but I enjoyed the pre-wrapped, sweet blueberry muffins available upon request at the front desk. (The fresh fruit and granola bar on the side were also quite tasty.)
I was told that a pool, jacuzzi, and gym were all located on the premises. Having done a poor job packing for this trip, I sadly neglected to bring both workout clothes and a swimsuit.
I have only two critiques for this hotel. I wish more of the parking cost was included in the rate. Additionally, the wallpaper of my room was peeling in a few spots and needed to be patched up.
I was generally satisfied by the low noise level at night, with bumps from the floor above being the exception and not the rule. All the staff members with whom I interacted were friendly and helpful.
Normally, the Embassy Suites chain fetches a higher rate than other limited service hotels in its area, but in this case it was the cheapest decent hotel in the city. I especially recommend it to anyone visiting the area for Georgetown and American University.
It feels fitting to stay at an Embassy Suites so close to Embassy Row in Washington, D.C. Thank you for a wonderful stay. I will undoubtedly return.

I wish I had read these reviews before I stayed there. I've always had good luck with Embassy Suites in the past and I saw this was a 4 1/2 star rating. Ha. It was nearly abandoned. The furniture was broken and dirty, the bathroom was falling apart. A full garbage bag sat outside a room next door for over a day. The breakfast was a bag with a packaged muffin, goldfish, and water (and the clerk was very defensive "it says on the website we don't have breakfast"). The few guests in the hotel looked like prostitutes--I think the hotel is being used as section 8 housing. Thank god we weren't there long, but it was such a bummer to stay there the night before we dropped our kid off at college. It was gross--I'm hoping whoever is planning a stay there reads this before they do!
