ARLINGTON, VA (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
With summer just starting and the school year winding down, thoughts turn to searching out family friendly vacations. Steeped in history, free attractions and easy access, Washington, DC is the mecca for summer family travel. The Hilton Crystal City at Washington Reagan National Airport, conveniently located between the airport and downtown Washington, DC, is offering a family fun package to help families looking to stretch their travel dollar. The hotel is one of over 100 hotels throughout the United States and Canada (including 17 hotels in the Washington DC area) managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
“The family trip to the nation’s capital is a tradition that creates memories to last a lifetime,” said Harold Bassler, the hotel General Manager, “and we are proud to be a part of those memories.” Now through May 16, 2016 the hotel is offering a Family Fun Package that includes:
- Deluxe guest room accommodations for up to 2 adults and 2 kids (12 years and younger)
- Free Full American breakfast in Relish, the hotel’s restaurant, for up to four guests each morning
- Free WI-FI – perfect for the kids to catch up with friends after a day of touring the city

Washington, DC truly does have something for every member of the family. Whether it’s shopping at the newest hip boutique or visiting Ford’s Theatre to celebrate Abraham Lincoln and witnessing where, 150 years ago this year, Abraham Lincoln took his last steps. Public transportation makes getting to all the world renowned museums and attractions a snap. Many kids find riding the city’s fast, clean Metrorail one of the most memorable and “coolest” parts of the trip.
Located in Crystal City, guests can take the city’s Metrorail system and see the nation’s capital like a native. Just steps from the city’s popular Blue and Yellow lines, guests have fast, easy access to all of the city’s major attractions. Some attractions such as Arlington Cemetery, National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Iwo Jima Memorial and Old Town Alexandria are actually closer to the Hilton Crystal City than its downtown hotel counterparts. “Because of our ideal location, we are a very popular choice for summer family travel,” said Bassler. “Not only because we are so close to so many attractions, but after a day of touring, our guests have numerous options for shopping, dining and entrainment within walking distance.” That list of options grows thanks to the hotel’s complimentary shuttle to historic Old Town Alexandria, a very popular dining and entertainment district for locals and guests alike.
For those flying into the city, Reagan National Airport is just minutes from the hotel, via complimentary shuttle. While a car is not needed to see Washington, DC, many capital bound tourists prefer to rent a car for a portion of their visit to enjoy day trips. The area has many natural and historical sites to see such as Virginia Wine Country, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor as well as famous Civil War battlefields in both Maryland and Virginia to name a few – and all just an hour or so drive away.
