We paid $102.00 a night for a King room which included 25% parking so parking was only $15 a day and we also got free breakfast each day per person which saved us another $15 per person! The breakfast was a full breakfast too, not just a few danishes and cold cereals. Each day there were scrambled eggs, backon, sausage links, waffles (do it yourself), bread, danish, cereal and fruit. The fresh fruit was also spectacular with melon, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and grapes. The service staff also brough you your juice and made sure you had refils and also got you any other beverage you needed.
The room was very clean and well-appointed with the usual chair and desk. There was also a very nice and large (36"-40") flat screen. As other reviewers have said the bath was on the small side but not European hotel small so we didn't find any issue with the size.
Staff was very nice and helpful in all parts of the hotel. They have a nice pool too with a full-time lifeguard which was interesting because the pool max depth was 5'. However, if you had children this would be a great comfort knowing a full-time trained lifeguard was on-duty.
The hotel also provided one free bottle of water a day and complimentary copies of USA Today. Radisson - if you read this, it would have been awesome if you had provided one bottle of water for each guest staying in the room especially since it was over 100 degrees each day we were there:)
The hotel was also a couple of blocks from the Metro station so our car never left the garage. No matter how crowded the trains get you really don't want to drive in DC, between the traffic, pedestrians, tour buses, city buses and confusing roads. Train was only really crowded one day but that was more our fault because we decided to ride it out of DC (along with everyone else) at rush hour on a Friday. A little smarter planning on our part would have eliminated this one small thing.
Another nice perk is the nearness of restaurants. two blocks away on 23rd street is a great collection of restaurants. We ate at one of the Italian restaurants there (see separare review of Tagolio) where the food was spectacular and the service great. WARNING - you might see a listing for a Crystal City Steakhouse online, yes it has "strip" but not steak but rather "strippers". Odd thing is they have glass doors at the entrance and from the vestibule into the main area with no doorman so you can see the strippers from the outside or in our case walk right into the main room before you realize what is going on. Funny story for our group of adults, might not be so amusing if you have children. However, this establishment is on the other side of the main road from the other great restaurants so won't be an issue if you go to the main section.
Will stay here again when I visit the DC area in the future.
