Stayed here a couple of years ago and it was an OK stay, nothing to complain about. Needs some updating and better tvs. I had a rental this time and it was $27 a day to park it, even on the weekends. There is parking on the street using the meter via the app but max time is 2 hours...

Haven't even checked in yet.. called to ask a few questions and Miss Phyllis answered my call. She was so polite and helpful. Had a good sense of humor when I had to "find" my question list, lol! Please show her some love and appreciation. She deserves to be recognized. Can't wait to check in. See y'all soon!

My family members occupied two rooms. The rooms were very comfortable. The internet could be slightly better. It was OK on the first night, but on the second something happened and it didn't work, but we were leaving anyway. The parking inside came with the accommodation, but it is not easy to get a parking spot in their garage. The...

Very helpful when we asked to be moved to a higher floor because of the noise. Einstein Bagels is closed, so that is a little inconvenient and the in-house restaurant is expensive as always. If you qualify for the lounge it is quite nice though. Not the best one I've been to, food is occasionally gross but it's nice for...

Stayed here many times over the last ten years and never had a problem. This time however I encountered numerous employees distracted by their phones. Valets, bell staff, front desk and the list goes on. Had one lady at the front desk actually checking her text messages while I was talking to her....sad. This, along with the poor upkeep of...

Decided on short notice to take a short holiday to Washington D. C. After researching available hotels, I decided on the Crystal Gateway Marriott. Glad I did! Metro station and a small underground mall are under the hotel. Indoor parking garage as well. (If your vehicle is under 6 feet high. Full size newer pickups may need to use the...

Very happy to have found a hotel so convenient to Metro and the Airport. Tunnel from Metro connects to this hotel, which is great in bad weather. Don't expect memorable, but very reasonably priced and a pleasant stay.

Faced with the DC Metro system's poor schedule for the Christmas period, we opted to leave No. VA on Christmas evening and spend the night near DCA, so that we wouldn't be rushed for our morning flight. We had relatively low expectations, and were quite pleasantly surprised. First off, when you get off the Metro in Crystal City, you don't...

Both in my travels and my work, both while living in the area and not, I have had occasion to visit this Marriott property in the center of Crystal City. Almost all of the many high(er)-end properties in this small area of Virginia within a few minutes of the Pentagon and the District of Columbia are nice. A Metro station...

I stayed at this hotel with my son when his hockey team travelled to D.C. to play the Little Caps. The team manager had booked it for us as the rate was somewhat low. The game was at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex and there is a Westin there right across the street. Literally. We had stayed there once before and...
