Layover for a canceled flight. Crystal City would rarely be anyone's first choice unless your flight was canceled or you had a convention there.
The location is fine for it's proximity to DC (hotel is not far from Crystal City Metro stop), but otherwise there is little reason to leave the hotel. Crystal City is what I imagine the first lunar colony will be like--lots of large, windowless concrete buildings with very little life on the surface. There are good restaurants on 23rd Street (try Jaleo) if you don't mind a bit of a walk. The hotel shuttle will also take you but I didn't use it.
The room was the typical courtyard fare, with excellent beds and linens, very clean and spacious, with a strong, consistent Wi-Fi signal (free). Staff were very friendly and helpful with pre-dawn cabs back to National.
