I booked this only a few days out (my pre-flight lodging fell through) and was surprised to get a good price. I'm glad I did because now I know the area and would stay here again if I got another reasonable price (or if they offered a park-n-fly deal). The location is great being so close to the airport and if you have any free time there is a ton of stuff to walk to (restaurants and shops in the Crystal City) including the Mt. Vernon Recreation path. I felt very safe walking by myself at night. I took the hotel shuttle to the airport and left my car (same price to park there as airport, so no deal, but eliminated hassle of driving myself). The front desk staff were very friendly and the breakfast as with most Hampton Inns was more than satisfactory. The gym was very small (3 pieces of cardio equipment and I had to wait to get one). But if it was daylight I would just run to the bike path).
