We stayed two nights. We booked on Expedia.com and got an unpublished rate of $150 for two nights!!! At that price, the hotel's value is off the charts (in the good direction!).
From the moment you arrive you are greeted by the Valet parking staff. Our attendant was helpful in allowing us to check in (20 min) while our car stayed out in front, at no charge. Inside, the staff at the front desk were very polite and helpful in every way.
Our kids really enjoyed the outer elevators, which ascend with a view of the lobby, 1st and 2nd floor atrium and then exit above that with a view of the pool and parts of Crystal City. After their initial hesitation, they would simply refuse to take the normal, inner elevators and wait for the outer ones.
The room was equipped with a king bed and ordinary sofa (not a pull out one), which was easy to move against the bed so that our eldest would not fall out. The room was spacious but the bathroom was a bit small.
The pool is not too large but was a perfect size for our young kids. A lifeguard is always present. The hot tub felt nice - it was warm but a bit breezy that day.
The hotel is within walking distance of some very good restaurants (spread out on Crystal Drive) and a few more quaint/ethnic ones along 23 street - 10-15 min walk).
The hotel shuttle starts at 4:40am (not 5am advertised on the hotel's website). This was perfect as we had a 6am flight to catch from Regan Airport, although mind you this airport is not crowded at security lines, so we had time to grab breakfast.
In conclusion, this airport offers luxury (at a price upwards of $250 a night), although one can hunt for deals like the one we got. It is a 10min shuttle drive from the airport. I would definitely stay there again.
