A little hike from the metro, but all in all a good location. Clean rooms. Nothing fancy but everything was ample. Free wifi was good and fast. Overall a great stay. Liked the added security of swipe cards to get to hotel floors.

This hotel is very close to the DCA airport. Byyron at the front desk could not be any more firendly. His customer service that he provided was exceptional and he was about as polite as I have found any front desk staff. WOW! Very refreshing to have hotel employees with great manners, and he was so accommodating too. Pub fare...

We stayed at the hotel about 2 years ago (forgot to write my review) This was our family vacation before my husband deployed, and we wanted to visit DC. The room was big, and clean, and when my son got sick all over the floor, they moved our room fast, and had cleaners in there the next morning. That made...

We stay at Holiday Inns/ Expresses whenever we can & are generally happy. We were at Crystal City for about 7 hours, between check-in late & check-out early. Picked it only for proximity to airport, with shuttle service. The shuttle worked good for us, taking rental car back at night & getting to airport early. Like other reviewers have said,...

The hotel is located on the busy Hwy 1 corridor near the DCA National Airport. Parking is ample and easy and attached to the hotel ($16). Check in was quick and efficient. Our room on the 10th floor had a nice view of the local neighborhood with beautiful Fall trees and glorious sunset. The room is really quite small for...

This is a typical Holiday Inn hotel, located in Crystal City. It is a bit isolated from other establishments but has shuttle to metro and airport. The pub located in the hotel offers happy hour drink and appetizers. The National Diner is no longer open, but McDonalds is next door. The hotel room itself is very very small - think...

The Hotel is very close to the airport and around 15 USD taxi to D.C. the subway station is also near if you take the shuttle bus from the Hotel, which I highly recommend I encountered some difficulties at the reception. I paid my booking in advance but the system didn't confirm that which made the receptionist using my card...

I was lucky that the Holiday Inn National airport shuttle arrived within minutes of my arrival to the curb. I have been here many times before as you can see from my prior review.

While we are thrilled that you enjoyed our complimentary shuttle service, it was disappointing to hear that you were not happy with other areas of your stay.

We stayed here before flying out of Reagan Airport. The rooms are nice and the shuttle was very prompt. It's only a mile away form the airport so you don't have to worry about making good time.

This particular Holiday Inn is desperately in need of an overhaul. Our party stayed in three different rooms and disappointment waited for us in all three.
