    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    According to recent visitors, there are many things to love about The Embassy Row Hotel, starting with its location. The hotel is a short walk west of the Dupont Circle metro station, plus, as its name suggests, it sits on D.C.'s famous Embassy Row. When you're not exploring the Dupont Circle neighborhood, admire it from The Rooftop – the hotel's trendy lounge and pool area (open seasonally). Though you're within easy walking distance of several top-notch restaurants, visitors say you should stick around the hotel to sample the evolving menu at Station Kitchen & Cocktails. Travelers particularly enjoyed the drinks prepared by the bartender. Reviews for the rooms were a bit more mixed, however. Some lodgers appreciated the funky color palette, contemporary furnishings and eclectic style, but others were less charmed, describing the rooms as tiny. Aside from the aesthetics, accommodations are equipped with 47-inch TVs, work desks and Keurig coffee makers. What's more, you can schedule in-room spa treatments. When you're not lounging in your digs, work up a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center or retreat to the "Adult Playground," a lounge with table tennis and foosball.
