Prior to heading out o a 5:35a flight from DCA to meet my connecting London Heathrow flight in Chicago, I booked a points and cash rate at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan Airport, which provides complimentary shuttle service to the airport from 4;40a-midnight, running every 20 minutes. At 6,000 points plus $75 it isn’t cheap, but considering the cheapest rate I could find was above $250, I decided it was worth it.
Checking in, I was informed of my Hyatt Diamond benefits, including complimentary wifi and breakfast. When I informed the desk agent (who was actually the duty manager) about me leaving so early, he offered me a free appetizer at the bar in lieu of breakfast since I wouldn’t be around! Very generous. He also upgraded me to an Ambassador Suite which is the reason for this review.
On the 15th floor, the suite consisted of two rooms, a living room with work area and the bedroom.
Walking into the room, the bathroom was immediately on the right, and was fairly spacious, though was angled due to the shape of the room.
Walking further into the hallway was the sitting area, with desk, which was very spacious. Two armchairs flanked a coffee table, with bench seating along the window. An oversized working desk was also along the window.
There was also a long couch off to the side.
Through the living area was the bedroom. The two were separated by a door enclosure, though there wasn’t actually a door there.
Angled like the bathroom, the room featured a walk-out balcony, as well as a bench and oversized dresser.
I actually really liked this room, and though I wouldn’t consider using a Diamond Suite Upgrade here, it is a great offering if the rate is cheap enough, or the front desk is nice enough to upgrade you.
