There are several Marriott brand hotels in this area, including another full service Marriott. I like this Marriott over the other full service Marriott, primarily for the concierge lounge. They are just a few hundred feet apart. The Gateway is also larger and has a more expansive lounge area.

We stayed here for 6 nights for our family trip to DC. The employee at the front desk Abdullah was very helpful and even helped us with our bags to our room. The thing that made our stay just amazing was the concierge!!! Charlette made this Marriott really stand out. She helped us with every aspect of our trip. She... More

This was my third stay at this Marriott and there is a consistent theme -- the best feature of this hotel is that you can catch the DC Metro without going outside. There are a number of negative aspects of the hotel, with the most prominent being the VERY poor desk staff. They are consistently rude, uninformed, and poorly trained.... More

Selected this Hotel, based on the Priceline Package price, on my 4 day visit to DC. Not only was the price right, for my flight and the 3 nights in the Hotel, there's more . . . .

I had a meeting here and it was great. Clean and efficient and walkway to the mall with plenty of great restaurant choices. The concierge lounge had great breakfast. Free shuttle to National is a plus, what more do you need? For tourists, it may not be the best choice, because of location.......though you could take the metro into the... More

We moved to this hotel after staying at another Marriott (Rosslyn). I could not help comparing the hotels since our arrival. The front desk staff is really, and only, technical. They have training, but they are cold and distant. They get their job done for the moment. Anything you ask that is not in the standard procedures, and you don't... More

I stayed at the Marriott Crystal Gateway while in the area for business. There are a few tell-tell signs of the hotels age, such as the rattling of the doors since they don't close firmly, but other than that the hotel has a very new appearance. The rooms were cleaned and maintained, and there was a couple of sit down... More
