Certainly the areas to the east of Jeff Davis Highway (Route 1) are deserted at that time of night, the "office canyons". But the area of Crystal City with most of the hotels is actually pretty lively, especially during tourist season.
Tons of people coming and going from the hotels to the dining/drinking spots along 23rd Street and the places like Legal Sea Foods and Chili's.

I still think the OP is better in a taxi since she's not familiar with things and has luggage, but it's far from deserted around there.
