“Comfortable and near the airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The hotel is well appointed and clean. I wished it was located near the restaurant, but still a 15 to 20 minute walk to get there. Maybe during summer is not a bad of a walk but during a windy or cold night, then it is not the ideal.

The room was comfortable. The sofa provided extra seating and another place to sit besides the bed and chair.

The only thing that kept me up at night was the tub running after I took a shower. I had to close the door of the bathroom so I can sleep and not hear it.

The livby if the hoyel iffered an interactive Screen where restaurants were licated Nearby. Overall I had good night sleep

Hotel is very close to DCA airport. The Crystal City METRO stop is located on the lower level of the hotel via underground tunnel and this is so important if your visiting the downtown DC sites, easy easy access to the Metro. Hint, buy your Metro tickets during off hours to avoid the lines at the automated Metro ticket machines. Checkin was a breeze, you have a choice of self or valet park with a few dollars difference if you have a car, we self parked without any issues. Checkin was a breeze. Room was nice, updated, and clean. Bed and linens were very comfortable providing for a good nights sleep (we stayed 3 nights). Breakfast is available in the hotel restaurant called Bell 20. We booked a rate that included breakfast which was basically $20 more than rate without breakfast, it was worth it because the price for 2 breakfast buffet for adults is just shy of $40 (and not worth $40 by any means). Ordering from the breakfast menu with coffee will cost you about $28 on average. There are also a few good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel ( Legal Seafood, McCormicks, Chili's etc) If you rent a car from Dollar car rental their lot is off airport and only a couple of blocks from the hotel, very convenient.
So basically the hotel is a nice Marriott, but the best amenity is that the METRO stop is at the hotel and therefore it is so easy to jump on the Metro and get into DC to see the sites. You are 2 stops from the Pentagon, 3 from Arlington Cemetary and a few more to Smithsonian. You dont want to drive into DC and try and park. You can also take the Metro to Old Town Alexandria from this hotel and avoid that parking nightmare. Take Crystal City Metro to King St. station and then jump on the free Old Town trolly into Alexandria. This is our third stay at this hotel and each stay has been enjoyable without any issues. Weekend rates are much cheaper than weekday rates, so if possible plan your stay here Fri-Mon We paid $119 per night (including breakfast) Would have been $99 w/out breakfast).

Room Tip: Weekend rates are MUCH cheaper, stay fri, sat or sunday nights if you have that option as weekday ra...

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and I am so happy you were able to take advantage not only of our location and proximity to the METRO but also with our weekend two-for-breakfast package. It is certainly a good deal and it sounds like you discovered one of the best ways to see not only this hotel but the DC area.

We needed to stay one night in washington. We arrived late in the evening at reagan airport and unfortunately the shuttle did not run anymore (the cab fare was 10 dollars). Check-in was quick. The rooms are a bit outdated but spacious. The bed needs replacement, because I kept on sliding to the middle of the bed. The hotel is one block away from the metro station was gave us a change to go into washington. Also the late check-out time of 1pm was welcome.

Connected to the Crystal City shops complex, and easy access via the metro to the National Mall via the Yellow line, we had 9 nights here for he Cherry Blossom festival. It was everything you'd expect from a Marriott but competitive rates compared to other hotels in the chain, closer to DC centre.

Thank you for having chosen to stay with us and I am glad you were able to take advantage of our traditionally better rates then downtown and use our easy and convenient METRO system to access the city.

Stayed at the Crystal City Marriott for a conference and enjoyed the connecting Metro Shops and Metro access during my stay. From the hotel perspective, the room was nice with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and no noticeable noise from other rooms. The pillows could have been better and wish the room had a personal safe, but overall was satisified with the stay. Glad my work was paying the bill however, as I was not accustomed to the hotel rates in Washington D.C.

We (family of four) booked the a room of two double bed for 2 nights stay during spring break. We chose the hotel because it is next to Metro station so we can take train to DC. When we arrived at hotel at 6pm, we were told there was no double bed room left. We told them we cannot stay in one king bed room with two adults and two kids of age 13 and 9. They provided us an option to stay in Residence Inn which is eight blocks away from there and also costs $20 more. Finally, the manage agreed to pay difference for us to stay at Residence Inn. But we ended up driving to DC the next day to fight heavy traffic. We took our kids for vacations twice a year for last a few years, it is worst experience we had with hotels. So if you want to stay in this hotel for a family trip, you'd better double check before you get there!

Clean rooms, an attendant on duty at the pool, friendly staff, a nice experience. Stayed 2 nights, in town for the Cherry Blossom festival. Chose the hotel based on reviews, price, and easy access to the Metro. Staff did a great job cleaning the room. Windows have a little ledge so you can sit, not much of a view in the area, but nice to sit and soak up the morning sun.
If I had to find something to pick on, it would be the towels. The pool had nice, soft, fluffy towels, the room had thin, coarse towels.

Room Tip: The corner rooms ending in 34 and 36 can see the river and part of DC.
