I stayed at the Crystal Gateway Marriott for four nights. The room was lovely, and the hotel service was great. I really enjoyed the workout room, pool and hot tub. The business center offered free internet access to print airline boarding passes, although other internet access was pricey. I LOVED the location with quick access to the Crystal City metro... More

My meeting was in Crystal City, so this hotel's location worked out great. From the cavernous hotel lobby, you can walk directly into the underground passageways and shops under Crystal City and it is about a block (underground) from the Crystal City Metro stop (another plus). All the rooms had been recently renovated; new furniture, carpeting, flat-screen TVs, high-end linens,... More

Another nice at a Marriott property. This hotel is close to National Airport and there are quite a few retail establishments within walking distance. The room is clean and the service personnel friendly.

My son found a piece of glass in his ice cream during dessert in one of their ballrooms. I showed a waiter the large crack in the dish as well as a jagged egde on the lip of the dish. The waiter acted like he could not have cared less and took the dish. I figured he was taking it... More

My two teenagers and I took a quick trip to see the sights in Washington DC and stayed in this hotel. Having done much research on hotels in the area, I decided on the Marriott Crystal Gateway because of easy access to the Metro - and the very reasonable price at the time! We don't travel much, so when we... More

As always, I booked through Priceline and got this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to get this location at the price I paid. (Significantly lower than retail) Checkin was prompt and the luggage was taken upstairs by the staff while I decided to go find something to eat. Once I got back to the hotel, I was ready to sleep.... More

Stayed for the Army 10-Miler. Discounted race rate was only valid on a min 2-night stay, but it was a very reasonable rate for the location. I had a junior suite on an upper floor, and the room was spacious and comfortable, with the bedroom separate from the "living" area, and a large bathroom. Amenities included coffee maker, mini-fridge, safe... More

I stayed at the Crystal Gateway Marriott from 18-22nd September 2008 (4 nights). As my plane landed at Dulles Airport, I took the 5a bus and then the metro, which worked out much cheaper than taking a cab. The metro (Crystal City) and the Crystal City Mall are directly connected to the hotel via a underpass which is very convenient.... More

Nearby within easy walk are the restaurants, shops, drugstore, fast foods and grocery store of Crystal City underground. Rooms are upscale, confortable and easy to enjoy.
