My flight out of National got cancelled during the huge storms that flooded the DC area ... and I had my choice of 1) Sleeping on the floor in the terminal 2) Hyatt Regency Crystal City for $375 or ... 3) Americana ... at $99 for the night. A delightful no-frills throwback. Front Desk staff was pleasant. I was surprised to get a metal key, not an access card, for my room. Room was basic and clean. Bathroom was very 1960s ... with a real mirrored medicine cabinet and tiled walls! Air conditioning worked poorly, but I didn't care ... I'd had a long day and was thankful for the clean room. Neighbors got rowdy around 3am, and before I could call, someone from the hotel was knocking on their door asking them to quiet down. Walkable to Metro via the Crystal City Underground ... a fine place to catch a few Z's while stranded.
