“Nice place”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

My wife wanted to see DC so I started to look for rooms for the weekend of 5/16. Unbeknownst to me, Georgetown University was having their graduation that weekend. The rates were on the high side in DC but many were sold out anyway, so I checked out Arlington. I was concerned about airplane noise since were right next to one but I didn't hear a plane, not even outside, weird.
I settled on The Crown Plaza largely due to price, it was $50 to $75 less per night than the other "decent" chain hotels. I made a good choice.
The staff was really friendly and helpful about info on the National Mall. We were able to check in 3 hours early and were happy with our clean room. The Metro is only a couple of blocks away and I didn't use my car all weekend. There is also an underground shopping mall right next to the Metro.
The hotel has a nice breakfast restaurant with a Starbucks next door. There is another restaurant that serves lunch and dinner along with a nice bar. We did have drinks there but didn't eat there.
There is a gym, outdoor pool 24hr sundry room and a conference center.
I didn't expect (or need) much but I found the hotel and location to be ideal.
I would recommend.

My tranbs-Atlantic flight arrangements meant I would have an overnight stay in the DC area - as I would have a few hours to be a tourist for once(!) I decided on the Crowne Plaza as the price was competitive (I chose the parking deal which offered a saving on the parking garage charge) and it's location was great for a short metro ride downtown.

Overall my experience was very good, from check-in to the room quality and cleanliness and the breakfast to check out the following day. There was a large party of youngsters staying too and it seemed the organisation for them was great too as there was no impact on service at all.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 2 weeks for business purposes. The room was very clean and so was the bedding. Wifi connection in the room and around the hotel excellent. There was a lot of places to go and eat around the hotel and also the shuttle service takes you to both local shopping centres (malls) which has a greater selection. The staff at the front desk, bar and restaurant were very helpful. Please use them for local knowledge I would also like to give a special mention to Abel who was the shuttle bus driver. He went out of his way to help everytime i needed to get somewhere near the hotel. The breakfast was a buffet style with a great range of both hot and cold foods. The food at the bar was very tasty and reasonable cost for what you got. Especially the burgers. I would most definitely stay here again if I came back here for business.

Green Features: I was given a choice not to have my towels and linnen changed to save energy and water.

We've stayed at this hotel several times and it can't be beat for its good weekend rates and proximity to Metro, good restaurant choices nearby (everything from fast food to upscale), and excellent walking options. Not only is Crystal Drive a good walk itself but the extension of the walk now into the new Long Bridge Park is a great asset... wonderful views across the Potomac to downtown DC, and iconic view of the Washington Monument. Hotel staff are wonderful, very gracious and helpful. Rooms are standard business hotel variety, well-maintained and clean but nothing special.

Room Tip: This hotel seems to be a favorite for school groups so ask when you check in if there are any in the...

Great location. Lots of restaurants nearby. Only a few miles from DC and Old Town Alexandria. And the drive to and from DC is easy. My only complaint is I found the bathroom to be a little small - especially for a Crowne Plaza. But the room itself was large, comfortable, clean and quiet; and the staff was friendly.

Really close to metro and hotel has shuttle service, too. Close to restaurants, bars, and shopping. Rooms nicely done and comfortable. After a day of exploring DC, it was nice to relax in before bed. Ate twice in hotel restaurant and food was good. We would stay here again if in DC area for fun.

Stayed here for a business trip. The hotel was recently renovated and everything was upgraded. The hotel is close to all kinds of restaurants and bars. The bar at the hotel is not bad either. In the rooms the beds are very comfortable and the tv and mp3 player are brand new. Staff was great and the hotel shuttle is great and reliable. Overall great hotel! Will definitely stay again!
