Crowne Plaza Washington National Airport offers convenient access to attractions and events in the nation's capitol. Located just blocks from the Crystal City Metro Station, sites around the National Mall are just minutes away. And if one chooses to drive, entry to US Highway 1 and Interstate 395 are also just blocks away from this place of lodging.
Staff is courteous, helpful and friendly, exceptionally so. Regardless who it was with whom we spoke, be it folks at the Front Desk, the Bellman, Maintenance, Cleaning Staff, and so on, all were ready and willing to answer questions, help, often going above and beyond.
The rooms are nicely appointed, the beds clean and comfortable. Lighting was more than adequate.
A Starbucks restaurant is located within the hotel, and offers one the ability to call ahead for a grab-and-go beverage. Also located within the hotel is a restaurant, but its hours were limited when compared to our schedule and we were not able to dine.
On the minus side, television reception was often fuzzy if viewing other than digital stations. Digital was fairly frequently obscured, perhaps due to the hotel's proximity to Washington National.
While very clean, the carpeting apparently was not vacuumed in advance of or during my stay. (The same bits and pieces that were present upon arrival remained untouched as I left.) There were also some discarded bits and assorted other unwanteds tossed behind the nightstand that remain to be vacuumed and/or otherwise removed.
A smaller refrigerator is made available; it was hidden behind the right door of the furniture on which the television is placed. We were able to purchase soft drinks elsewhere and cool them in this fridge, avoiding the $2 per 20-oz bottle charged at the vending machine on this floor. The addition of a microwave would have made the stay all the better.
Site access is a bit of a challenge. Through no fault of its own, a bicycle race on the Sunday of our stay blocked all egress from the site. One could drive to CPWNA. One could not leave, however, as roads were blocked by the bicycle event. It may help to check in advance to see if any similar events may be occurring during your stay. Entry to the hotel is off a narrow alleyway between the hotel and an adjacent building.
All-in-all the goods far outweigh the few bads. And again, the courteous, helpful and friendly staff ensured our stay was a very good one.
