DCA - Radisson National Airport

Radisson Hotel Reagan National Airport
2020 Jefferson Davis Highway
Arlington VA 22202, USA

The Radisson DCA is located on Jefferson Davis Highway near the other DCA hotels in Crystal City. The Van pick-up was pretty quick on the lower level of the Airport. Check-in was very fast and its clear they are used to the airport-hotel crowd, letting folks know when the restaurant opens in the morning, etc. 

My room was on the top floor - but I think I got the "priceline" room, which was a smaller handicap room at the end of the hallway -- next to the service elevator. Even on the top floor there isn't much of a view.

The bathroom was very large and had just a handicap shower -- no bathtub, but that was fine.

The room was well appointed, but no sleep number bed -- just a regular mattress on the basic bed.

My TV remote had some dead batteries, so I called down for a replacement. I also ordered room service about a minute later. After 30 minutes my dinner arrived and about a minute later a new TV remote arrived -- not sure why it took so long for the remote. The room also has a microwave, and mini-fridge, plus a free bottle of water. Wired internet is FREE (there was a wire in the desk drawer).

There are a couple different dining options within walking distance of this hotel -- so don't feel like room service is the only option.

The Crystal City Metro station is a quick 2 1/2 block walk away. I would probably stay here again -- but any of the DCA Hotels are probably just as good. The Hampton Inn is right next door and offers free breakfast in the Morning -- while the Radisson offered some decent Coffee in the lobby.

The hotel is good for business travelers meeting in Crystal City, Arlington or the Pentagon.
