This is a very nice convention level property hotel in an excellent location on the Metro in Crystal City minutes from downtown DC. They have long tenured staff who remember and welcome you on repeat stays. The buffet breakfast in the restaurant Mez is nothing less than sensational. Try to book a rate that includes breakfast. If not available, eat... More

Resonably priced hotel with a restaurant on the premisis with good food. All services were great even with a small problem with the bill the staff acted very professionally and accomodating. With the attached shopping and Metro stop an ideal place to stay very close to DC. We used the concierege for the best tour in town and she came... More

I was in DC on business for 5 days last week. The previous hotel I had stayed in was very noisy and my room was near an elevator so I did not sleep well. The next day, I checked in to the Crystal Gateway, and found myself near the elevators again, so I went down to the desk to request... More

I did enjoy my stay here. Pros: Room was clean. Hallways were quiet. Check in staff and others were very pleasant. Great location. Upgraded for business usage and accessible outlets by the beds. Cons: mattress had a higher slope rating than the golf course I played. Not that the mattress was hard....but was sloped. Want a snack in the afternoon,... More

Warm welcome on check-in. Arrived ready to eat. Rather than walk a number of blocks, decided to eat in lobby restaurant. Sat at a booth and was greeted promptly by server. Service was good and courses arrived in good times. Also used the Executive Lounge on the 16th floor for breakfast. Food was hot and some good choices of healthy... More

Reasonably priced hotel with a great location. There is a metro stop attached to hotel. If doing tourist activities, many of the hop on and off buses will pick up and drop of right at hotel. Concierge was very helpful with planning activities. Friendly and helpful staff.

This hotel was in the perfect location. It is in walking distance of the Pentagon and there is a mall in the basement! Yes ladies, shopping available without having to worry about the elements. The staff was extremely helpful and everyone greeted us with a smile. The beds are super comfortable, and the rooms were ultra clean. Being 7 months... More

By "Close Enough" I mean this hotel is close enough to many of D.C.'s amazing landmarks/venues and close enough to being a very nice hotel. I reviewed the Courtyard Washington Convention Center previously, and that hotel would be my preference for a nicer stay and closer proximity (walking distance!) to things to see in D.C. That said, this hotel is... More

As they say, "Even a blind squirrel sometimes finds an acorn". In this case, we took "pot-luck" and found a Pot of Gold. We took three rooms for the first night and our stay was so nice, that we stayed another night after our adult children left. From the minute that we pulled into the entrance parking area and ran...

Stayed at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in September for a conference. Even though this is an older hotel, it is very clean and nicely furnished. I found the customer service in this hotel to be outstanding. Banquet staff was very friendly, which you don't find often. Front desk was exceptionally helpful, especially Keisha Ellis the Front Desk Supervisor who helped... More
