Hotels Near Crystal City Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Americana Hotel
Why: Save Up to $100 Per Night, Free Parking

There are six hotels within walking distance to the Crystal City Metro station. All of these hotels offer a shuttle to the airport. DCA is less than a 10 minute drive from all hotel options. Out of the bunch without question we recommend the Americana hotel. Weekday travelers can save as much as $100 per night by staying at this economy minded option over the nearby brand name hotels. Unlike all the other local options the Americana offers free parking and is only hotel to do so in all of Crystal City. Breakfast and wifi are also free. Most reviews praise the Americana for its adequate clean accommodations, but few to none rave about its décor. Travelers who prefer a brand name hotel will have plenty of other choices like Marriott, Hilton, and Westin. that is only one block from the Metro station. Because the Americana almost always offers better rates for a comparable experience we recommend it over the other brand name options in Crystal City.

About Crystal City

Who is Best for this Location?

thumbs_up Crystal City is a great location for those visiting on business, particularly the Pentagon. It is generally more affordable than neighborhoods in DC proper, so is a great option for tourists.

nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: Crystal City is an urban area of Arlington, VA, mostly dedicated to business. While its close proximity to the Pentagon means you’ll find a number of high-rises filled with young professionals and military personnel, the neighborhood can empty out after business areas. This is a safe neighborhood and the metro is in close walking distance to the hotels. Crystal City does, however, straddle a major highway, so visitors, especially those with small children, should be cautious of traffic while walking around.

things_to_do_48Things to Do: Tours of the Pentagon are available, but must be reserved in advance; the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Crystal City is a convenient metro ride into Downtown DC for tourist and close to destinations such as Alexandria and Arlington National Cemetery. Bikers and joggers have easy access to the Mount Vernon Trail. And, of course, a main draw of Crystal City is its proximity to Reagan National Airport. For a safe thrill check out Gravelly Point Park and watch the planes land at DCA airport. One great amenity in Crystal City is free WiFi in many of the neighborhoods outdoor areas. The local Business Improvement District group has developed a schedule of special events that take place throughout the year, including outdoor movie nights in summer and 5k Fridays in April.

what_to_east_48What to Eat: As a mainly commuter area, you won’t find a ton of nightlife here. Partiers should head to Old Town Alexandria or Clarendon for a larger variety of bars. You will find a number of familiar chain restaurants, such as Chili’s or McCormick & Schmick’s, in Crystal City. Looking to grab a quick lunch? Locals rave about sandwiches and service from Cafe Paramount. You’ll find a variety of dining options on nearby 23rd Street Restaurant Row, including Ethiopian cuisine at Enjera. (Tip: Don’t let the name “Crystal City Restaurant” fool you—this is an adult entertainment venue.)
