We spent 9 days in the Virginia area, stayed at 9 different hotels. This was the most expensive with the least amenities. No Internet, no breakfast, dirty room. We booked a king room, but upon entry it was a 2 double. We were told there were none left, even though we arrived early. The icing on the cake, no hot... More

The hotel is very nice. Clean and spacious room. Good location. Very well prepared for conventions and business meetings. We had a nice stay at this hotel. Swimming pool is nice but kids should be supervised at all times.

This is a Hotel that has a very pleasant, easy to access, free airport shuttle to take guests to the hotel. My business arrangements did not require a trip from the hotel to the airport so I do not know if that is also provided, but I would assume so. There is great public transit connection through a short tunnel... More

I have been to this hotel before on business. It consists of two "towers" which seems like two hotels joined together. The rooms are large, modern, without a tub, but, large shower, which I preferred. The hotel is connected to the Crystal City Shops, with easy access for shopping or visits to Rite-Aid (which has an assortment of fresh food... More

We stayed there in September for a conference. The room was very large with two beds and all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. I asked for a feather free room because of allergies and they have a dedicated floor for such rooms, which makes a nice change! Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Dining was limited as... More

I joined my wife while she attended a conference being held at the hotel. The free shuttle from Reagan National and check-in were very efficient and they handle large crowds well. The concierge was helpful with sites to see and tips about using the Metro. The Crystal City Metro stop is available through tunnels from the hotel so you never... More

This is one of the best hotels in terms of service everywhere in the hotel. Fantastic. Had the bad experience of having dinner at the restaurant ( think it's called Mez). Could even complete the dinner. There is room for improvement.

We stayed 3 nights at the Crystal Gateway. The rooms were comfortable and properly equipped, and the hotel staff very helpful. The shuttle from Reagan National was quick (there is also the option of Metro - 1 stop to Crystal City). The hotel is connected (via underpass and shopping mall) to the Crystal City Metro stop. We bought a Smartrip... More
