“Hotel a-la-carte”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Attended a class here for four days and I liked it. Please read 3 1/2 stars.

As I understand it, it recently converted from another chain to Radisson. That was good for me as Radisson had a triple points promotion (full disclosure).

Their strategy: unbundle. So, there is no free breakfast and parking is $20 a night (expect to pay for parking everywhere in D.C.). On the other hand the room was significantly less that the others on Jeff Davis Hwy. This room was clean, reasonable size, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, make-up mirror, drier, iron and board. King was comfortable. Weird thing was that the bathroom had no vent; that stank!
Hotel has an outdoor pool and small workout room.
They're painting everywhere.
There's free wifi in the lobby and the signal is very good (there may be wifi in the rooms, but I used my air card. Staff was friendly. The restaurant has a $14 breakfast buffet. The lunch and dinner menu is limited, but very good quality and priced right (try the sweet potato fries!). I don't drink, but noticed there is a happy hour. Don't want to eat at the hotel? Numerous restaurants within walking distance.
The number 1 reason to stay here is location. It's a 10 minute drive to the Smithsonian Museum (and all the other D.C. attractions). It's a short walk to the metro- one stop to the Smithsonian station.
Did I mention that I paid $107 for this room instead of $170 next door (for free breakfast, indoor pool and $15 parking per night).
So, stay here. Enjoy! And Click "this review was helpful."

This Radisson has seen better days, but I hand it to the management for hiring such efficient staff. The desk clerks are helpful and quick; the rooms and carpets in the hall are cleaned nicely; the free airport shuttle is prompt and friendly. It's not the most exciting for decoration--all beiges and hotel art--but, then, it is a hotel. The walls are a bit thin, so it's pretty easy to hear the neighbors (bring ear plugs if you want some quiet for sleeping). My king sized bed was comfortable, though, fluffed with extra pillows, and the room was huge! And the hotel is two blocks from the Crystal City Metro, making for a quick trip to the sites in downtown DC. There's not much in this area itself, though, so you really have to hop on the Metro to find something of interest to see and do and to locate restaurants that aren't the usual mall chains. For the reasonable price that you pay for a room, it's a good value.

We had an overnight layover in DC going from Chicago to Miami. We booked our room through Hotels.com for about $80 bucks, got picked up in the airport by the hotel shuttle quickly. Arrived to the hotel around 10:30pm, and had to leave at 4:30am for our flight the next day. The man working the front desk said their shuttles didn't start running until 5:30am. (The person who booked us the room on hotels.com told us the shuttles would run starting at 4:30 and that he had actually reserved a shuttle time for us through the hotel which was frustrating). The man at Radisson front desk was super nice and accommodating, and specially arranged a shuttle for us. The room was nice and spacious, super clean, and the bed was incredibly comfortable with those big fluffy white comforters. We didn't have time to explore the area, or even see it in the daytime, but the hotel is nice, comfortable and perfect for a stopover.

One is two blocks away from the Crystal City Metro Station on the Yellow and Blue lines. Or one can take the free airport shuttle to Reagan Airport for the Airport Metro Station. Rooms have free wi-fi, a microwave oven and small refrigerator so one can prepare and store food. Hotel chages for parking and breakfast. Sleep comfort bed did not work.

Room Tip: Make sure automatic sleep comfort bed works.

This Radisson had the best customer service, they were very polite and helpful. They are right next to the subway and convenience stores, and they provided excellent service and advice for getting around. I was doing yoga in the morning however and when I stretched my arm out a gignormous cockroach scurried across the room. They did relocate us and comp one of our nights. There was somebodies room service waist in the hall way for several days though, probably encouraged the cockroach's existence... but they handled it very well, and I would definitely recommend this hotel. The only down side, why I didn't give 5 stars, is the down feather bedding. I am severely allergic and ended up spending a day in urgent care, really was my own fault for sleeping on it, but they should have alternate bedding available. They were a great hotel however, and the rooms were clean and the workers were excellent. Definitely recommend, and definitely will go back. If they had decimals I would rate a 4.7....Almost perfect!

Room Tip: Opt for the business upgrade, the sleep number bed and the spa products are wonderful and worth it...

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.
