Dear Fellow Travelers, I'm writing this review for one simple reason: to say thank you to Quisha for making my stay at the Crystal City Holiday Inn what every traveler desires and what we so rarely get - the feeling of being welcomed, of actually being cared about, after however many hours, days or months we've been on the road....

I had read numerous reviews about this hotel and for the most part they were all pretty much negative. So glad that I went with my own instincts. Hotel was very nice, staff was extremely helpful and pleasant, no long waits for the airport shuttle, and hotel was convenient to eateries and shopping. Would like to extend a special thanks...

The Holiday Inn National Airport clearly had seen better times. The elevator is squeaking upward and the aircon rumbles as a old steam-engine - not teh palce for a quiet sleep when your room's beside the elevater. The bar serves fingerfood that looks like it was cooked yesterday and the whiskey sour comes with Amaretto in it... Last stay at...

I work from home and because of that look for hotels that have a wired ethernet connection, which I then call and confirm with the hotel before booking. Holiday Inn Express said that it was wired. Checked in on Saturday and tried the connection first thing but it didn't work. Waited until Monday before letting the front desk know. 5...

Upon arriving at the hotel the front desk agents were very kind, however they took my credit card to use as a security hold for any damages which should only be $30. They assured me that was only the money being charged to my account. The next day I checked my credit card statement and they have taken the full...
