“pretty nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

very close to DCA. Mcdonalds and CVS next door. Good selection of restaurants within a few blocks. Shuttle to DCA and Metro(nearby).
Hotel has some age to it, but the rooms are big and clean. the hotel staff have always been friendly and helpful. They do have an onsite restaurant which has a buffet breakfast(not included with the stay). Food is good. Also has a small onsite bar. going to be honest, have never been in but looks like a nice little sports bar.
Pool seems to be permanently closed. have to swim a few blocks away. pretty big workout room. Not sure if they have micro/fridge. never had one, but seems like I saw one in the hall once. Ask
2 things. somebody else wrote. DCA is not an international airport. and he had a Wi-Fi chip in his card and thinks it got read at the hotel. could have been read anywhere, mickey d's, airport. All somebody has to do is stand next to you. EITHER WRAP THISE CARDS IN ALUMINUM FOIL OR GET THE CREDIT PEOPLE SEND YOU A NON CHIP CARD.

Room Tip: no one side or room is better. all quiet.

within minutes of checking into this hotel my credit information was used in an attempt to purchase 600+ Euros worth of merchandise. When I returned home I had collect phone messages from prisoners in AL. It could not have been a coincidence it was the only place my card was exposed. It does have the RFID chip from which identities can be cloned with the right equipment. Management at the hotel was informed as soon as I was made aware of the potential fraud. I am experienced traveler and usually very careful but I let my guard down in this event.

I recommend you guard your credit information carefully if you plan to stay at this hotel. The hotel is a bit dated and the rooms are relatively small but clean. There is a lot of traffic because of its proximity to Ronald Reagan International Airport. .

This was the most satisfied that I have been with a hotel in quite some time. The focus on customer service was excellent. The rooms appeared to have been recently renovated. They were tastefully decotated and spacious.The bathrooms were good size as well. The rate was very reasonable. I would stay here again.

On a recent business trip to DC, several co-workers and I were the recipients of the finest customer service offered at any hotel. Ali and his staff obviously work around the clock to ensure that guests' experiences at the property exceed expectations which is a pleasant surprise as a traveler. The food and beverages were of the highest quality and served by professional and friendly staff. Without hesitation, I would recommend this property to any person traveling to the DC area for business or pleasure.

One of the better priced hotels in Crystal City. Rooms were small and definitely older. Bathrooms were small with poor lighting but bedding was comfortable. Staff were friendly. No complimentary breakfast. I would recommend staying at a newer hotel in the area.
Tip: avoid paying hotel parking ($15/nt) by finding street parking (meters) behind the hotel (enforcement begins at 8am though!).

Dreese1,

Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn National Airport Hotel as your hotel while visiting the Washington, DC area. The Holiday Inn National is a mid-market hotel that offers travelers a value price for a clean and relaxing hotel stay. We are not the newest hotel in the market, but the ownership of the hotel is constantly undertaking renovations to make sure we provide a clean crisp hotel where everything works. In 2014, property improvement plans will include renovations to guestrooms and Food & Beverage outlets; which will add core value to our hotel amenities and the hotel in general.

We look forward to you coming back and staying at Holiday Inn National in the near future to experience and see the newly renovated area of the hotel.

Yours in hospitality,

Hotel Manager

Our stay at the hotel began with an awesome front desk check-in who gave us information about the hotel itself, but also about their services and how to get around the city. Two of the 5 rooms wehad booked were not ready when we arived at 1:30, but a quick call to a very responsive housekeeping supervisor & we were able to get those rooms in less than an hour and despite check-in not officially occurring until 4pm. The shuttle services were outstanding and the drivers were prompt informative and courteous. The rooms were clean ( you could tell from the smell that cleaning supplies had been used) The beds were comfortable with lots of pillows which was nice.
The only reason I did not give a 5th star is that, I would have like a continental breakfast of some scale. Other than that this was the best hotel I have ever been to.

This property is a bit worn around the edges but the courtesy of the staff exceeded expectations and the location and price made my stay well worth it. Also liked the gym. McDonald's is right next door as well.
