Sky Dome at Doubletree Crystal City


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 Winner

Location and contact

The areas only rooftop revolving restaurant. Take in the stunning views of Washington DC, the Pentagon, the Potomac River, Reagan Airport and so much more without having to leave your seat. A full menu is offered as well as many drink options. We'd love to welcome you. Reservations (Open Table) recommended. Simply take a North Tower elevator (at the Doubletree Hotel) to the 14th floor, get off and hit the up button for the Skydome elevator. Should you get on a South Tower elevator, simply get off on the lobby level and go past the Café for the North Tower elevators. Be sure to bring your parking ticket for validation (up to two hours). We hope to welcome you to the Skydome for a unique dining

Thank you Ashley for sharing your experience. While the Skydome revolves, it is extremely slow and as you indicated almost unnoticeable. However it makes for a fantastic way to take in the panoramic view without having to get up. I am glad you liked the...More

Nice view from rotating restaurant but decor, food and dining experience greatly lacking. Limited menu, no offer of dinner rolls, food substandard and not served hot. We ordered risottos and it was bland and texture was terrible and gummy. Price of wine is crazy high....More

Loved dining in this place, as it slowly turned. Food was very good, but quite spendy, and the menu was a bit small. Good for sight-seeing at night!More

We walked right in mid week with no reservations. Given it’s a smaller venue, it may be worth checking if a Friday or Saturday night.

There is a children's menu but you have to know to ask for it. It was not offered. No happy hour as far as I know. They like you to sit in the lobby bar.
