Arlington, VA (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
The Hilton Crystal City at Washington Reagan National Airport, conveniently located between the airport and downtown Washington, DC, is turning heads with a new approach to catering to the business traveler. “Our guests really love our newly constructed and upgraded club lounge,” said Harold Bassler, Area General Manager for Crescent Hotels & Resorts. “We started with a clean slate, creating the executive lounge from repurposed space and moving this experience near our main lobby and ballroom area so that the guest does not feel excluded from the rest of the activities within the hotel.” The Hilton Crystal City added the executive lounge as part of a $14M renovation last year and is one of over eighty hotels throughout the United States and Canada (including 16 hotels in the Washington DC area) managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
While many hotels offer a club lounge to seasoned business travelers, the Hilton Crystal City takes the club lounge experience to the next level. The club lounge is designed to truly provide guests with an experience that exceeds the competitor hotels with architectural elements that would be seen in homes rather than hotel outlets. Guests utilizing the club lounge not only receive VIP treatment, the experience is magnified by the large glass windows that span across the main wall allowing others to see in but only gain access with a designated key card for the club lounge. The oversized space, with seating for 60, boasts custom designed tile flooring and seating clusters including deep comfortable sofas and communal tables where those in club level rooms can mingle with other club guests.
More power outlets were added for the convenience of those traveling with laptops and other powered devices. For those that prefer to relax, and unwind, there are sleek stainless steel and glass refrigerators with a variety of beverage and food options. The morning has a special buzz each and every day as guests visit the lounge at their convenience to enjoy a complimentary deluxe continental breakfast offered daily.
“Our lounge has really impressed our regular travelers, and has been selling out regularly,” stated Bassler. “Guests that have not reached an elite status within Hilton do not mind paying a small surcharge for the exclusive use of this private area.” In travel today, many perks have been removed throughout the travel industry; however, at the Hilton Crystal City it is clear that executives and road warriors are being provided the experience that honors their time and business.
