Staying at a Radisson is what you expect—reliable, clean and predictable. The Radisson at the Regan National Airport is all that. But it is not actually at the airport which is probably its best feature. It is between Pentagon City and Crystal City, within walking distance of both chain and local small restaurants, the Crystal City Metro stop and two nice upscale malls, one with a Nordstroms.
But it is also on a VERY busy road, the Jefferson Davis Highway. My room on the second floor towards the highway had traffic noise ALL night. If I return, I will ask for a higher room on the other side.
I did not try the restaurant. With DC just a few metro stops away, why eat at a hotel restaurant. And I won’t pay $10 for a continental breakfast that most other hotels now provide gratis.
If you have a car, parking ($20/day, self park) is contiguous. Because driving and parking is DC is horrendous, it is nice to have a safe place to leave the car. But who designed it with 8 steps up between the garage level and the hotel? Not accessible and not fun to lug a suitcase up and down.
The microwave and refrigerator in the room is a nice touch, especially if traveling with a family or to take advantage of restaurant leftovers.
The price for the area was competitive.
