The hotel is an excellent base to visit both Washington and the local Virginia towns. To travel to DC take a short 2 minute walk to the metro through the underground walkway connected to the lobby and you then have a short 15 minute ride on a clean and safe underground system. Ronald Reagan airport is nearby and having the shuttle bus service enabled us to travel to our next destination with the minimum of disruption. The staff were very friendly, polite and attentitive when we had dealings with them. The room was large and well appointed and I would recommend you stay on the upper east tower to get the best views of downtown. The rates we got for the weekend were excellent and made it a viable cost to visit Washington. If you get the opportunity take the metro the Alexandria VA (2 or 3 stops along the line) where you can take a walk straight out of the station and walk down Main street where there are a wide variety of independent shops with lots of excellent restaurants and bars clustered around the pier at the end of the street. If you are too tired to walk back then you catch the free trolley bus back to the station.Visiting Washington? You will not be disappointed at the Marriott Crystal Gateway.
