I spent two very nice spring nights at the very nice Hyatt Regency Crystal City. The hotel is among the closest to National Airport, in Arlington's Crystal City area, a generically bland sector of office towers, hotels, and chain shops and restaurants, but a great location that's closer to downtown DC than many parts of DC are.
The lobby is very Hyatt-like, with a big atrium featuring lots of indoor trees and a fountain. Check in was quick and professional.
Some of the previous reviews said the rooms were small. Not mine. I had a standard king, which was quite ample in size and very nicely and newly decorated, with a very contemporary, boutique-ish look, modern art on the walls, soothing colors, a large flat-screen TV, and a couch and love seat near the window.
The bed was uber-comfortable, just firm enough with so many pillows that you'll have to knock half of them on the floor to go to sleep.
The bathrooms were compact but very attractive, continuing the modern minimalist look of the rooms. My shower had a curtain, unlike some other reviewers who had a glass door. The clothes closet was behind a very sleek sliding glass door.
The Hyatt is in Crystal City, but is one of the more distant hotels from the Crystal CIty metro station. On a pleasant fall or spring day, the 10-minute walk to the Metro is nice. On a broiling hot or freezing cold day, take the shuttle that leaves every half hour. (One shuttle goes to National Airport, the other to the Crystal City metro stop and other Crystal City locales, on request.) From Crystal City, the Smithsonian and the Mall are 3 stops away (L'Enfant Plaza).
