My wife was in DC a few days before me for business and I flew out to meet her. Since we were flying in and out Reagan and drive down to the OBX, NC for several days, staying near the airport made sense. We usually stay at Marriotts because of a family connections, but everything in the area was booked for the days we were to be in the DC area. I selected the the Radisson mainly because it had rooms available and had a rental car office on site. For the cost it is a nice place and the hotel staff is every friendly and accommodating. The building could use a face lift and some exterior sound deadening.
However, the location is very good. There are numerous restaurants with in walking distance and there are free shuttles to Pentagon City Mall, Crystal City Metro station and Reagan. Our flight home wasn't until 8:30PM the last day, so we checked out and used the complimentary luggage storage for the bags, took the shuttle to Pentagon City Mall and walked to the 911 memorial at the Pentagon. From there we bought day passes for the Metro and went sight seeing in Arlington and DC. After a full day of the sights, we took the Metro back to Crystal City and called for the shuttle. On the way from the station to the hotel we told the driver we would be heading directly to Reagan after grabbing the bags. When we arrived at the Radisson the shuttle drive retrieved the bags and loaded them in to the van for us.
The only real downside I came away with is the hotel's restaurant staff. Though pleasant in manner, many of them seemed disinterested in the work or the customers.
