Stayed here two nights for a business meeting nearby. Price was better than neighboring hotels but still cost $240/night after all the taxes. Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, close proximity to National Airport, free airport shuttle, nice breakfast buffet included in price. Cons: Older facility with those obnoxious heater/AC wall units which wail loudly, spewing alternating blasts of Hudson Bay...

The hotel has a good location and a walking distance to where I was taking my training that was by Crystal Dr. They need to improve the following: 1) Didn't clean my room in my first day of visit. 2) Asked assistance because the shower faucet was jammed and didn't want to ruin it.

Stayed here for a week when we went to DC for a friend's graduation from med school. This hotel was significantly less expensive than others in the area, and we weren't planning on being in the hotel much, so it seemed like a good choice. It is a bit of a walk from the metro (maybe ten minutes) but not...

A little hike from the metro, but all in all a good location. Clean rooms. Nothing fancy but everything was ample. Free wifi was good and fast. Overall a great stay. Liked the added security of swipe cards to get to hotel floors.

This hotel is very close to the DCA airport. Byyron at the front desk could not be any more firendly.

We stayed at the hotel about 2 years ago (forgot to write my review) This was our family vacation before my husband deployed, and we wanted to visit DC.

We stay at Holiday Inns/ Expresses whenever we can & are generally happy. We were at Crystal City for about 7 hours, between check-in late & check-out early. Picked it only for proximity to airport, with shuttle service. The shuttle worked good for us, taking rental car back at night & getting to airport early. Like other reviewers have said,...

The hotel is located on the busy Hwy 1 corridor near the DCA National Airport. Parking is ample and easy and attached to the hotel ($16). Check in was quick and efficient.
