Stayed at this Crowne Plaza for the second time. The gentle man checked me in with free upgrades due to my status as a Priority Club Platinum member. We asked for microwave and the front desk was willing to deliver it to my room, but my wife declined the offer. We only spent one Saturday night there. The best part... More

Thank for staying with us for the second time. You are correct, the location is perfect with most rooms offering a great view of the Potomac river and the rooms on the upper floors facing north also have a view of DC. For the physically active we aso have great choices for Biking, Jogging, Walking and Tennis. Besides the George... More

I stayed at this hotel for the Easter weekend. This hotel was booked pursuant to a bid on Priceline, but I have to say that had a payed asking price, I would have been REALLY upset.... The positives - the room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel in general was clean. Unfortunately, there were... More

We stayed here with two children. The hotel staff were friendly, however not the most helpful. Hotel was a good value for the money during April school vacation. There is a parking fee of $20.00 per day in addition to hotel price. Complimentary Wi-fi is available in downstairs lobby. In individual rooms they charge an additional $9.95 per day. No... More

We stayed here for a long spring break weekend to hit a few more museums with the kids. This is really too far from the metro, especially after a long day walking all over DC with two kids, but they have a shuttle. When we checked in, the hotel was on generator power only, but that was corrected quickly enough,... More

The powercut certainly made life difficult for a while and I thank you for your understanding during the difficult time and apologize for the problems it caused you. We are fortunate that two years ago we installed an additional Emegency Power Generator that enabled us to keep one elevator running. Thank you for staying with us, I appreciate your business....

I was bumped and the airline booked me into this hotel. The staff were helpful in person, but not so much on the phone (see experience below). The hotel location is not great, it was too far to walk to the Metro or Old Town in the cold weather. And for Priority Club members, they did give a couple of... More

While my room this Crowne Plaza was satisfactory the uncaring and downright mean personalities of the front desk staff really turned me off of this property. Check in was handled quickly and quietly. The attendant while not unfriendly definately didn't go out of her way to make me feel welcomed in any way. I was assigned a room on the... More

While the hotel itself is fine, the customer service is sub-par, and the hotel is located a mile from the nearest metro, with no restaurants, stores, etc. nearby.

Hotel is a little ragged. Staff was helpful but somewhat indifferent. Restaurant was just OK. Parking is $20.00 a night and the internet is only free in the lobby. They have a shuttle to the Reagan airport Metro station, but, their van is small and when it's busy you may have to wait until it returns . A cab ride... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Tuesday night using points. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a ninth floor room with a view of the Potomac River. We had a few hours to kill before taking in a show, and ended up pulling chairs up to the picture window and having cocktails. Jets landing at National... More
