Its difficult to find high quality for a good price in Crystal City, or DC in general for that matter. This is a great location and probably one of the most reasonably priced in the area. The only drawback is that its not anywhere near a Metro stop, something I really like when I am in the DC area. However,... More

Typical Holiday Inn property with clean, comfortable rooms and public spaces. Very close and convenient to DCA with regular shuttle service to the airport. The neighborhood, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired and I did not feel safe outside the property at night.

The Holiday Inn is very convenient to the airport, DC and within easy walking to many fine restaurants. It is the lowest cost hotel of any reasonable quality in an area where room prices are plain crazy. While not luxurious, I found the hotel to be quite reasonable and the staff very helpful in finding good restaurants, directions around the... More

Booked direct through Holiday Inn website as I have done numerous times in various cities. Room rate included breakfast for 2. Found the hotel to be tired and in need of refurbishment. Very basic and way out of date. Arrived very late after many hours in the air so ate in a very unappealing bar, maybe an outdated Irish theme... More

The room (2 double beds) was very spacious for 2 adults 2 kids, and very clean. The beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows.The staff... More

Very good value compared with other high priced hotels in the crystal city area. While it may be as nice and fancy as most other hotels in the area, it provided clean and comfortable rooms with an accomadating staff. Close to the airport but a little distant from the metro and "main" part of Crystal City. The hotel did offer... More
