My husband and I just returned from an overnight visit to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Crystal City. We booked a non-smoking, KING sized bed room for one night. We pulled up to the front of the hotel to register and were told there was no valet and we should have self-parked prior to coming in to register. There wasn't a sign out front of the hotel or on the web instructing a guest of this procedure. We asked for a room on a high floor with a nice view and were given a room on the 9th floor, better known as the "quiet floor". We were never given instructions that we needed to place our room key into a slot in the elevator to get to our floor. Only after several unsuccessful attempts and pushing the 9th floor button again and agin and then watching another quest get in the elevator did we find out about this procedure. Upon entering the room, we noticed how small and tight the room was. The view was into the windows of an office building directly across the street. Since the window drapes were hanging over the air conditioning unit, the air conditioning was non-existing once the drapes were pulled closed. There were 4 small and I mean teeny-tiny pillows (like sofa throw pillows) on the bed. I referred to them as chicklets. When your head was on the center of the pillow, the sides of the tiny pillow wrapped around your ears. We called housekeeping to request two additional pillows and they sent up two limp but lumpy pillows. The bathroom was so tiny you could only fit one person in at a time. If you were on the toilet, no one could open the door to get to the sink. If you are the least bit clostrophobic, do not stay at this hotel.
