Westin Crystal City, VA (January 2021)

Booking

Booked using Marriott.com for $59 per night before tax. Total room charges inculsive of tax was $133.74.

Property

Once upon a time, this property was a Sharaton (I’d guess around seven years ago). That’s about where the fixtures are in the refresh cycle; worn, but not terrible.

Checkin

Checkin was easy, and they asked if I’d stayed at the hotel. Despite COVID, the bar was open past five, and for breakfast they offered a selection of items from the gift shop on a prefilled card. I got a frozen breakfast sandwich, Kind bar, and OJ both days.

Room

Reasonably large, fairly typical Westin room. Looking at the fire-escape map on the door, it looks like most rooms on my floor were the same.

Food and beverage

I did get several very strong vodka-tonics from the bartender, who was very nice.

Service

Service was friendly and helpful.

Rating (out of five)

Three stars.

The Chaedrol Hotel Guide does not provide “balanced” reviews of stays, but rather our reviewers’ experiences at properties. Star ratings are based on price, so that a luxury or budget hotel may both receive either no or five stars, and factor in extenuating circumstances. Your actual experience may vary.
