Stayed 5 nights for a conference in DC convention center. Easy access to metro subway below the hotel to any DC points of interest. I would recommend this route due to traffic congestion and super high parking prices.
Location: just across the river from DC and a short distance from DCA airport with free shuttle. The crystal city has lots of shops and restaurant within its compound and also many restaurants and shopping within a short walking distance.
Hotel: decent common area, super small indoor pool which also opens up to outdoor pool weather permitting. Service is rushed at the front desk and at the concierge lounge ( let's get to the point attitude). Requested late check out as a platinum member but was basically told someone is waiting for your room right now.
Room: Outdated by Marriott standards, only had turn down service on 2 of the five nights. No inroom safe but did have a fridge.
