Dear Fellow Travelers, I'm writing this review for one simple reason: to say thank you to Quisha for making my stay at the Crystal City Holiday Inn what every traveler desires and what we so rarely get - the feeling of being welcomed, of actually being cared about, after however many hours, days or months we've been on the road....

I had read numerous reviews about this hotel and for the most part they were all pretty much negative. So glad that I went with my own instincts. Hotel was very nice, staff was extremely helpful and pleasant, no long waits for the airport shuttle, and hotel was convenient to eateries and shopping. Would like to extend a special thanks...

The Holiday Inn National Airport clearly had seen better times. The elevator is squeaking upward and the aircon rumbles as a old steam-engine - not teh palce for a quiet sleep when your room's beside the elevater. The bar serves fingerfood that looks like it was cooked yesterday and the whiskey sour comes with Amaretto in it... Last stay at...
