I fly into the Dulles Airport every week and have been staying at the Crown Plaza Dulles Airport for almost a year. Here are some great pointers:
The front desk staff is very friendly. Security is great ---- key access only to the hotel entry, elevator after 9pm. I felt very secure staying at the hotel.
The transportation to the airport runs every 30 minutes 24 hours a day and the drivers will take you to where you need to go in between trips if the destination is close. If you rent a car (which I do), the exit to the hotel is the first exit after leaving the airport. No charge for covered parking.
The business center: provides free computer use… I sent as well as received my fax for free.
Room: microwave and a very cold empty refrigerator for your use.
Newly renovated and very spacious room…the Bed is very comfortable.
The room is very sound proof and quiet. The desk lighting and work space is excellent.
The rooms also have free WIFI as well as Ethernet hookup. The speed is really fast.
Huge space for your hanging clothes and plenty of drawer space.
There’s also a coffee maker with free coffee and tea…the coffee is very tasty.
The workout space equipment and swimming pool is awesome.
The soccer field behind the hotel is nice if you like to run. I run there all the time.
The hotel restaurant is Houlihan’s--- it’s a great place to unwind.
The 7-11(with a Redbox DVD rental Kiosk for $1 each), Wendy’s, and Taco Bell is a 4 minute walk.
Cross the street to the Gateway Center and there are many restaurants and a large movie theater.
A half a block away is a Kohl’s and a large Grocery Store.
I fly all over the world and stay in a variety of hotels. I definitely consider the Crown Plaza Dulles Airport my home away from home. GREAT VALUE for the money!!
