This hotel needs updating, we had to move rooms as first room's toilet wouldn't stop running. Then new room's TV was like one from the 1960's with so much static, and the bathroom fan sounded like and airplane ready to take off. Staff was nice. Complimentary shuttle to King Street was awesome and convenient. No breakfast included with room rate,... More

We took a weekend trip to DC as a family. We arrived to the hotel at 10am. We pre registered and I confirmed a room with 2 beds per my reservation. I explained to the desk agent we would not be returning until 11pm due to going to a Nationals game. I was assured all was set for our return.... More

I slept great in this bed; nice a film, but fluffy. Bathroom was good and very well lit. the breakfast buffet was the same everyday and self serve so just average. There was nothing wrong with the hotel, but it seemed just sort of sad. It wasn't outdated, but it was lifeless and has a slight odor.

Our weekend stay was for the purpose of a regional meeting of a national children's organization being held on-site. Therefore, we made extensive use of the facilities for the purpose of attending meetings, a banquet, and socials. We did not patronize the restaurant. For cleanliness, comfort, meeting rooms and elevator speed, I give this hotel all five starts. For banquet... More

Being that this is supposed to be a more upscale hotel, I thought it was sub-par. First of all, we requested the lowest floor available, which they honored by putting us on the top floor. After asking to be changed, they at least got us down to the 5th floor. The rooms have windows down to the floor, which really... More

I paid about $144 per night at the hotel. The hotel does offer free shuttle service to Reagan National every half hour starting at 5am which makes the long distance to the Braddock Road metro stop a lot more bearable. My room was large, and the bed was very comfortable. The TV reception was poor but not a huge issue... More

Hade a nice size dining table that would seat 6. Kitchen with microwave and full size fridge. However, otherwise was NOT well appointed. There were two bathrooms. One in the main area... More

Got to this hotel blind off of hotwire's deep discount page and wasn't disappointed. Crowne Plaza's, in my experience, have extremely comfortable beds and cozy rooms. The view facing north was of the Capitol building and the Monument. It's close to King Street, but far enough to avoid all the crazy crowds (it gets suuuper overrun by tourists during the... More
