Marked by high-rise apartments and offices, this high-energy urban community is just steps from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Arlington’s largest downtown boasts an enviable location along the Potomac River with dramatic views of Washington, DC, and the national monuments.
More than 75 trendy stores, hip restaurants and cool cafes beckon visitors along the walkable streets of Crystal City Shops, which peddle jewelry, fashions, gifts and more. Meanwhile, studios and exhibits at Gallery Underground showcase the work of regional artists. Weekly farmers and artisan markets create lively social gathering spots.
Opportunities to exercise abound — from cycling and climbing to bike lanes and yoga. Stay fit at the world-class Long Bridge Park Aquatics & Fitness Center with Arlington’s only Olympic-sized pool (accessible to many hotel guests) and a waterfront esplanade with dramatic views of DC, and at Movement’s gyms and climbing walls covering more than an acre. Amid the area’s hustle and bustle, wellness center Mind Your Body Oasis invites you to relax and renew with hot and cold yoga, pilates, fascia blasting, cupping therapy, reiki, deep soul channeling and various types of massage.
