We were looking for a hotel that would allow us to do some sight seeing in DC without having to rent a car. With both airport and metro shuttle that both run every 20 minutes transportation was a breeze. The metro shuttle goes to the Crystal City subway station but will also drop you at the corner where most of the restaurants are located and pick you up there also. As a bonus, if you want to do the Old Town Trolley tour, (review on that coming), it has a shuttle bus that picks up at the Hyatt around the corner.
As for the hotel, first of all it is about two years old and spotless throughout. Very good and pleasant staff. The most impressive fitness center I have even seen outside a freestanding gym. My company make fitness equipment so I have a bit of knowledge on the topic. Very good breakfast that kept us going through a full day of touring DC.
There is no bar or restaurant or bar on site but the Renaissance that is in the other end of the structure has a nice one. All rooms have a very nice full kitchen that is well equipped. There is a very nice grocery store a couple of blocks from the hotel and we walked from it to the hotel late in the evening and felt quite safe doing so. It is a very nice area so walking is quite pleasant and safe. We were not overwhelmed by the Crystal City Shops but they are likely much nicer during the day than evening when we visited.
