Stayed four nights. Super comfortable bed. Spacious room. Super clean. Excellent bathroom. HD flatscreen TV. Asked for a quiet room and had a 17th floor room (there are 18 floors) with a nice view and definitely quiet. This is such a classy hotel right above the Crystal City Shops and the metro station. It's one stop on both the yellow... More

Had a meeting in the hotel. We arrived at 9 AM from the airport and they actually found us a room with all we had asked for (king bed, upper floor with a view). The service was quite good throughout our three day stay and the hotel has an indoor-outdoor pool and whirlpool. The food at the banquets was good... More

I am so tired of not getting anything for being a life time platinum member. Once again-not on the concierge floor-non of my profile requests were noted-basically nothing. This hotel is the same ole' thing-it would take a minute to really pay attention to your customers but you don't. Location is OK but I would not recommend staying here if... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for a weekend visit to Washington. The underground access to the metro was super convenient. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. There weren't many restaurant choices very close for dinner, as the mall shops closed rather early in the evening, so we walked a bit further than we... More

My sister and I stayed overnight, after taking the AutoTrain from Florida. We were too tired to immediately go and see the sights. The concierge suggested a sightseeing bus tour that evening. It was just right! We had time for a rest in the afternoon and then enjoyed seeing the monuments and other DC sights. When the bus was late,... More

Stayed for several days on business. The hotel room was clean and spacious, nice soaps and shampoos, but no tea/coffee making facilities. I was on the 12th floor and near the icemachine which was incredibly noisy at times at night. Breakfast was served as part of our conference, but for those of us with dietary restrictions, we only got one... More

Very friendly reception and registration area. Friendly staff in general. Nice location directly contiguous to the Metro - just a few stops to downtown. The pool and exercise facility is very nice. But a number of small annoyances aggregated into and unsatisfying experience. 1. The electromagnetic strips on the keys to the room (and the garage) were unreliable. Initially I... More

There is two Marriott nearby, and we had a hard time distinguishing the two prior to our arrival. We finally went with Gateway since the agent on the phone was much nicer than the other Marriott. It was important that we had a direct Metro access (it can get rainy and hot in D.C. this time of year), and the... More

We stayed here the night before an early morning flight out of National Airport. The room was nice, clean and spacious enough for 3. Shuttle to the airport ran on time (every 20 minutes). In addition they have a deal where long term parking is only $6.50 a day which is much much cheaper than the airport's long term economy... More
