While the hotel looks like it was built in the 80's, it appears to have been updated 5-7 years ago. The lobby is spacious and modern looking. The front desk staff were professional. The room furnishings are contemporary with a flat panel TV. The bathroom, though smallish, has a granite countertop. The bed had a comfortable pillow-top mattress. Housekeeping staff was friendly. Pool has indoor and outdoor portions is typical size for most hotels (Crystal City Marriott across the street has a larger, indoor-only pool, but that's the only advantage over this hotel). The convenient access to the Crystal City Underground's restaurants was appreciated, especially in January cold.
