“A great property! Stayed November 10, 2011”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

I bid on Priceline for this hotel and won at $78.00 which believe me was a bargain for this property. I was traveling with my 11 year old son. The hotel was a boutique style if that means modern, cool and hip. But, by all mean meant for all. The lobby had imacs with free computer access. Always available, I checked my stuff while my son played games. Also, chess games,tic tac toe and interesting books throughout. We arrived early from NJ about 4 hours before check in. No problem we parked the car (additional $22.@day) then the complimentary shuttle brought us to the metro. It runs every 20 minutes and for the two days we stayed it was always right on schedule. I never touched the car again until I left. The pool although on the small side was perfect as it was truly heated which is usually a biggy for me. We ate at the restaurant on premise. Pricey for sure but the food and service were both excellent. The next night I found out by the bartender they do have a happy hour. We were given the option of a king or 2 doubles. The room was very clean, the coffee was decent and the walk in shower was fabulous. Also, they deliver USA today in the am which I always find a treat. We stayed on the 8th floor and had no noise issues at all. I asked for the highest floor available. The surrounding area know as crystal city had alot of ammentities in terms of dining and shopping. We had pizza delivered the second night. We were going to arlington and the zoo the first day.
Washington the second. It was perfect. Metro so easy!!

The calming theme of the hotel was nice in the midst of busy Crystal City and DC Metro area.
The meeting facilities are first rate with attentive staff and good food.
Rooms are very modern , but in a comfortable way. All the latest technology and a very good bar as well.
On site dining was wonderful, and there were plenty of dining choices in the surrounding area.

I stayed from Wednesday, November 2 through Saturday, November 5, 2011. Friday night began with a loud party 7 floors below that went late. The rest of the night was spent enduring the lobby music being piped out doors at a very loud volume. Two calls to the front desk were fruitless. I just pulled an all- nighter.

Very nice hotel. Stayed on 12th floor with concierge privileges. The room was very nice. Could not hear airport or train, but lower floors might? The interior was lovely and room was nice. I disagree with the negative customer service comments. Staff was over the top helpful to me. Good location and value.

Stayed here for a conference and have taken twenty photos of the beautiful fluid "movement" design concepts throughout the hotel. Yes, a hotel so gorgeous inside that I snap pictures everywhere! Rooftop garden sitting area is delightful! Staff are over the top with friendliness and amazing customer service, even at the conference. Nice touches everywhere, even in the public restrooms. Beds are comfy. Only thing I would change is the gap between my door and the floor in the hallway - I can hear everyone walk by. It would be nice if it was a bit quieter. However, I cannot hear the planes taking off at the airport next door, so external wall soundproofing is excellent!

No doubt, this is a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing hotel. The rooms are great (although a tad small), and a major plus to have a walk-in shower vice shower/tub combination.
After an excellent stay at the hotel a few months ago, I was looking forward to returning, especially as a newly minted Platinum Member. Perhaps my expectactions were too high, or this hotel is still so new they don't know what to do with Elite members, but the perks were extremely lacking. The check-in was very blah and the receptionist was not very friendly nor did she explain anything about the hotel or lounge hours, etc. A few mistakes were made on the bill, and after inquiring with the manager, she simply said yeah that is wrong and then just pushed me to the next person, rather than simply apologizing and saying we'll take care of it.
Hopefully this was just an isolated incident and others have better experiences. It's a shame because it sort of ruined any chances of me returning for a future stay.
As for the other reviews posted on here, majority are spot-on and you definitely want to request a high floor if you are on the side of the train tracks. The Metro train isnt so bad, but the Amtrak and freight trains are quite loud.

I stayed at this hotel for a few days for a conference. Fascinating place. The decor is club-ish and modern. Big crystal diamonds on our meeting room tables. The rooms a nice size. But if you are on the side of building facing the DCA (national) airport, ask for a higher floor. I was on the 3rd and could hear not just the planes taking off, but the subway trains and regular trains (tracks are right by the hotel). About 5-7 minutes walk (not scary at all) to some very nice restaurants and an indoor set of shops. Things close early though, with restaurants shutting down by 9:30pm. Within this shopping area you can catch the blue line and get off near the Mall at Smithsonian station ($5 to and from). The DC area has this fantastic rent a bicycle program and one of the pick-up areas is right down the block from the hotel. Rarely have room service, but did this time and the Club sandwich was great.
