Finally got 2 little bags of ice from the front desk (1 person) Bed was awful, hard & bumpy. 7 year old granddaughter said she couldn't even jump on this bed, it didn't respond! Suite with separate bedroom was pretty large but the "barn door slider" needed some work It seems this hotel was in process of shutting down....they should have done so sooner!!! I'm very disgusted to have paid for two nights at this awful hotel....we couldn't even stay the 2nd night, left around 7pm Read less

Kind of a Tired Building & Rooms, Surrounded by Not Much in the Area. We stayed a couple of nights in January 2020 and with a rental car we could get around Ok. Parking was confusing.

But I made this reservation because we wanted to eat at the 360° Revolving Restaurant on Top: Sky Dome at Crystal City- they did get us reservations at the last minute as we didn't know the other party's plans. Room was quiet & spacious with a huge balcony overlooking Ronald Regan Airport which was fun! Read less

This was our second time visiting this hotel and the second time we were disappointed. Not only did they not put us in the room we requested (twice) but the manager was very rude to us both occurrences when we brought it to his attention. This time around we were told the suite we wanted was in fact available but “not being sold right now” smh… Read more

Staff are so friendly, rooms were exceptionally clean and roomy. You can get work done or just feel relaxed. Restaurant food was very good. I highly recommend. Perfect location for see Washington DC or having access to all the businesses around the area.

Stopped here for the night with the dog. Check in went poorly and we were told to go to one room and key didn’t work. Went back down and were given new keys to another room because first room was occupied. No grass anywhere for dog. It’s a concrete jungle. There is a Whole Foods a block or so away but that is it for close eateries. Room was clean… Read more
