“Okay for Work But Not for Pleasure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stayed two nights planned in advance...great location to subway...restaurant under renovation...adequate heat with average blankets meant a little cold most of the time...parking available with parking garage access into hotel...internet access...basically okay for work but not for pleasure.

Hotel is about 10 minutes from the subway, a short walk from the Crystal City shopping mall with lots of restaurants. The metro connection to the Washington is very good. Complimentary shuttle bus departs from the airport only on request (about 10min journey)

The hotel is nice - normal Radisson standard, equipment and appearance is not the latest, but the room was clean, bed comfortable, but the bathroom is very small. The greatest weakness is the reception staff (majority), who are unwilling, unhelpful, they don´t like solved the guest´s problems and probably it is not even interested.

Breakfast in the restaurant is quite poor, little choice and often empty dish (but for unreasonably expensive price) and in the restaurant is very cold (low temperature) and drafty. If you do not have breakfast in the room rate, then you go definitely elsewhere - in Crystal City is a better choice at a reasonable price.

If you do not expect anything from the hotel staff and you will have good value accommodation, so the hotel can be recommended.

Overall this was a pretty good hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is nice if you fly into DCA. I flew into IAD, so it was about a $60 cab ride to get to the hotel. Didn't want a rental and parking is $20/day at the hotel.

The rooms were very nice and spacious for the most part. Beds were comfy. Nice, big TV in the room as well. The bathrooms were surprising small. And my hot water didn't last long. Perhaps I just had a bad bathroom, but not up to par.

The restaurant/bar was pretty nice. The grilled chicken was good and they have Yuengling!

Location is a ways from the Whitehouse. But very close to the Pentagon and Arlington Cemetery. There is a metro about a 5 minute walk away, so it's easy to get around the city for cheap.

Room Tip: Ask for a large bathroom.

Have recently stayed at several of the other hotels in Crystal City and compared to those The Radisson seems rather bit "tired" and in need of a refurbishing. The room was smaller than average with a very small bathroom. The room was, however, well eqipped with a good bed, large quality flatscreen TV, coffee brewer, ironing board (and iron), refrigerator with freezer and microwave oven. On the downside the complimentary WiFi connection was not up to standard having a very low bandwith which made it almost useless.
The fitness room was rather small and only scarcely equipped.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise from Jefferson Davis Hwy

We stayed there for 2 night. Parking cost me 20 USD per day. However, we still think that is better than hotel in DC. Acceptable price, large room, and free internet make the hotel a good budget choice. And there are several restaurants in walking distance. Of course it is not a luxury choice, and we heard but not loud noise from the airport.

The staff was great. The hotel needs to be remodeled badly. The floors were very dirty and the rooms are small. The location is great, but the Hampton inn next door is nicer and has a breakfast. We moved there after a day.

This property was acquired by Radisson from the Days Inn hotel chain. Understanding that and the location of this hotel (Arlington, VA) being just a hop, skip and a jump from Washington D.C. you would think the hotel would be a bit more up to date (look wise) with all of the modern conveniences. Unfortunately, this hotel is not. While the rooms are very clean they could use a refurbishing. Updated wallpaper would be a start (including the hallways which are kinda dark). We had an issue with our bed (which was a sleep number bed). It failed to adjust and was kinda hard but provided a good night's rest otherwise. The bathroom was well stocked and very clean. Note if you are driving to this hotel it can be a challenge getting into the parking area in front. Jefferson Davis Highway is a congested route with drivers who simply will not allow you to change lanes to get to the hotel. Parking is $20 per vehicle per night. Now for the good ... the rates here are very good for the location. In fact it was far and away the most affordable in the area (which has high rates and prices for just about everything). You get free internet access, better than decent sized room and the customer service is excellent. The folks at the front desk are very knowledgeable AND willing to assist you in any way (if only service like this was an industry standard!) Overall the experience was a good one and despite some of the minor flaws I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good room close to D.C.
