Disclaimer - I am a Marriott Platinum member so I am typically staying in their properties. I do a fair amount of business in Crystal City and when there I typically stay at this property. With the underground walkways in Crystal City and connected to this property you can get around to other businesses and restaurants. Concierge lounge is good...

We checked in to our hotel on July 4th at 9:00am! I've never had such friendly and receptive front desk help. The room is exactly what you expect from a Marriott. Clean, well appointed. There is a "mall" in the basement, right by the Metro. You're next door to the Pentagon and 10 minutes by metro from the Capitol. Perfect...

Conveniently located next to a Metrorail Station, which gives you immediate access to Reagan National Airport and the greater part of the Washington, DC area, one of this hotel’s top features is location. Beyond that, the hotel provides clean, comfortable rooms with a warm friendly staff. And it is the latter which makes all the difference. With a hotel this...

We were on the 16th floor on 7/3, which is also the Concierge Level. Unfortunately, the Concierge is closed on the weekends, so no review for that. We ate at the breakfast buffet and it was impressive with lots of offerings. Service was not very good though. I requested coffee and water when seated and received orange juice. I had...

Stayed 3 nights. Staff were some of the friendliest I've encountered. They're more interested in making customers happy than in hotel "rules". Restaurant food was quite good, service wonderful. Quiet roon even though was close to pool and yelling kids. Beds comfortable, room clean. Worth the price. Only complaint was cost of wifi. Free in lobby, but still couldn't pick...

Great location for Metro or DCA, those are the main pluses. It is a Marriott so fine in that respect also. The Crystal City location is very convenient but not as interesting at night compared to say Gallery Place, Dupont Circle, downtown, so depends on what you are looking for in the evenings.Super busy 4th of July weekend and they...

Usually when I go to a hotel I look for three major things: 1) the structure itself 2) the availability of food 3) the service by the staff. I found that the property was OK. I was appreciative that a refrigerator was delivered to my room after I requested it. The choices for food in the hotel was very limited,...

Our room was 458; very conveniently close to the elevator and so quiet my husband even commented on it. The bed was actually really comfortable.
