Just returned from a 4 night stay at this beautiful and well maintained hotel. We were greeted by very pleasant staff and helpful staff. The hotel was very clean and our room was quite comfortable and very clean as well. Great bed and bedding. I agree with others that the wi fi should be free in the rooms. Also, as... More

Stayed here for business a couple of times in the last week. Easily accessible by car, and the parking garage was much easier to negotiate than the Crystal City Marriott. The concierge lounge here is not as nice as its sister Marriott just down the street, but overall I would stay here again. Super convenient to both the Metro and... More

I stayed at this hotel for a big conference. When I arrived the lobby was incredibly busy (which I learned is typical), but the staff members were all quite friendly. My room was not ready when I arrived, which was understandable given the size of the conference. In any event, I returned a few hours later and (as a Marriott... More

We stayed at the Marriott Crystal Gateway for four nights in early September. As other reviewers have noted, the hotel is right on top of a Metro station allowing very easy access to DC via a regular service (make sure to buy a Smarttrip card if you're making more than five separate journies). The hotel also has a very convenient... More

I stayed here two nights with my sister while visiting DC. We arrived at Reagan airport and took the shuttle to the hotel. Very convenient and friendly. As others have said, be sure to tell the driver which Marriott you are going to. The hotel was just a short drive from the airport. When we arrived we tried for an... More

We just spent 8 days here with our two kids on a DC vacation. The hotel was perfect. It sits on top of a metro stop a mall with shops. The Smithsonian stop is a few metro stops away and very convenient. We rode the metro everywhere. We were upgraded to a small suite. Had a king size bed in... More

Just finished a four-night stay and really enjoyed the hotel. I arrived at Reagan National and got the shuttle to the hotel – there’s one every 20 minutes outside the baggage pickup areas. Make sure you tell the driver that you are going to Gateway and not the other Marriott which is the Crystal City Marriott. Checked in and encountered... More

Here for a conference. The only good thing about the location is the proximity to the airport. Otherwise I'd rather always be in DC proper. There is a metro stop however. We did walk to Mortons and McCormick and Schmick so there were options in walking distance for meals. The rooms were okay and the beds comfortable. They have a... More

Stayed at this hotel for a two-day conference. Took the metro from Greenbelt and it was really convenient. You step off the metro into a little mall with shops and restaurants (ate at Morgan's Steakhouse one night and it was wonderful!) which leads right to the lobby of the hotel. Front desk staff, bellmen, catering staff were all wonderful. The... More

This Marriott is a bit on the old and dated side, but it is located just above the Crystal City Metro station. It also is connected to the surrounding areas via underground pedestrian walkways to the Crystal City shops as well as the 23rd Street restaurants. Service is okay, rooms are standard, a bit subpar compared to some Marriotts, but... More
