Stayed three nights at the Crystal Gateway Marriott. The hotel is convenient to Washington DC by car, cab, and Metro rail. Shops and restaurants next to the hotel provided lower priced eating alternatives to the hotel restaurant, though hotel restaurant food was quite good. Getting into Washington was quick and easy from the Metro station next to the hotel.
I only rated the hotel as very good based on the room itself. We had two full sized beds, one club chair, a desk chair, cabinet with refrigerator. Only complaints were that there were some holes in the shower curtain that appeared to be from a cigarette, yet the room is nonsmoking, and the club chair was a little worn in spots on the upholstery and padding in the arms. Housekeeping came by the room quite early, knocking at the door, but we just asked her to come back after 8:30 a.m.
The lady working the concierge desk was very helpful and friendly.
Overall, good hotel choice.
