One of the closest hotels to the airport and just a block from a Metro station, the Westin Crystal City is a smooth link between exiting the plane and arriving in downtown Washington, D.C. A mile from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service every half hour 5am -11pm. The Crystal City Metro station is footsteps away, and connects to the Yellow and Blue lines.

Four train stops take guests to the Smithsonian Metro station near the museums and galleries, and downtown Washington, D.C., is just three additional stops away. The Pentagon is one mile to the north, and offers guided tours -- though secrets aren’t divulged easily: access must be secured 14-90 days in advance.

Crystal City is on Arlington's border, 10 minutes by car from D.C. The hotel is also a 10-minute walk from the Crystal City underground mall, filled with 200 shops. The hotel brews free coffee from 7am - 10am, and a free Wi-Fi signal covers the whole property.

Enjoyed Most: Clean, attractive rooms. Beautiful view. Good service from hotel staff.
Other Comments: We had 2 rooms. One on the 11th floor - which was great. The other was for my mom on the 3rd floor - she doesn't like heights. She was kept awake until 12:30am by a band playing for a wedding reception. They were supposed to end at 11pm but went another hour and a half. We had to get up at 3:30am the next morning for an early flight. Not cool.
