How has this hotel rated in the past?
The hotel is amazing. I upgraded to a single room and their business promotion. I wake up in the morning to a newspaper outside my door, get a drink credit at their suave bar nightly, and breakfast in the morning. Very clean, ideally located, and friendly staff.

Great hotel, but bring your own food!
The staff is very friendly. The location is amazing, just a block or so from the Metro. But the food is highway robbery! Most places that say continental breakfast have a FREE continental breakfast. That's what we thought until we went to breakfast and were told that theirs is $11 a person for the usual things!! Just a plain bagel was $3! It was outrageous! Our last night there we didn't want to spend a fortune in the restaurant, so my husband went to the snack area to buy something little to tide us over until morning. He came back with $9 hotpockets!!! There is a microwave and fridge in the hotel room. My suggestion is to bring your own food or go to a grocery store somewhere!!
Our first trip to Washington DC and we booked short notice so the travel agent recommended this hotel for CoffeeFest. We've stayed at Radissons before but have never had this terrible of experience. We arrived very late due to our flights being cancelled and getting a different flight. The new person at the desk at 2:00am in the morning said I had called to cancel. I had called earlier to inform them we were arriving very late and asked distance from airport since we had to fly into a different airport then planned. (of course they had no idea). So he was trying to book me in but said he would have to give me the "walk-in" price. I showed him my confirmed reservation with the price on it stating king-sleep number bed. Long story short he had to call the manager at home, it took 1 1/2 hour to check us in and he said the mg would take care of the price tomorrow.
Nice hotel near Metro stop
My family and I spent a long weekend at the Radisson Reagan National. We took in a Nationals ballgame and as many of the attractions as possible in 3 days. The staff at the Radisson was very helpful and prompt with requests. We had trouble with the outlet/hairdryer in the bathroom. Within about 30 minutes the maintenance crew had it fixed and ready for us to use. It is a short walk from the Radison to the Metro. The Metro is the way to go in Washington. Only $6.50 for a day pass and you can take as many trips as you want. Our hotel rate was less than $100 per night which is rare in the Washington area. The room was small but very clean and quite sufficient for the 4 of us.
The Radisson at Reagan National is a fine place to stay. I stayed there because it was priced much better than most hotels in the DC area. I booked three nights through the Radisson website. It was a reasonable value at the price I paid. The room was clean and about what you would expect from an average hotel room. There was always a computer available to access the Internet in the business office. I had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, and it was quite good.
Good Business Hotel
I stayed at this hotel for one night. If you're looking for a convenient hotel near the airport with free high-speed internet, a great number-system bed, a good TV set and reasonably priced breakfast then count this hotel as an option. The room was clean with a refrig and microwave oven but the bathroom had practically no counter-top space. The staff was friendly.
The Radisson Crystal City is a very comfortable, standard-issue hotel in a good spot in the DC-Arlington area.
I stayed at the Radisson near the Reagan National Airport for one night. I booked a room online & was assured that a crib would be available. I had multiple problems:
I've been to DC 3 times in the last 2 years and stayed here two of those times (once in Wyndham City Center). I definitely recommend this place.
The hotel is very nice, and the Metro is a very close. and convenient walk. The only problem with this hotel is it's in the suburbs and therefore pedestrians are viewed as targets for the masses of autos streaming past. But as I said the metro is very close ...
Upon arriving late one night they went ahead and gave us a free night.
My family & i stayed at the Days Inn Crystal City on August 13 2001 for 3 nights, this is probably my favourite hotel ever ! The location is excellent just a few blocks (easy short walk) from the metro & the Crysal City under ground shopping mall. The hotel staff are very helpful especially in the gift shop where we purchased tickets for a tour of Washington & Arlington national cemetery. The rooms are very nice & clean and very nicely furnished. the swimming pool is on top of the car park & has very nice veiws, the pool also has a life guard in the summer. There are several good restaurants close by plus the hotels own which was very good. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there when i visit Washington DC next time.
