This Marriott is often confused with the Marriott Crystal City a couple of blocks away - it's a shame that two very similar names are used. Lobby is nice and spacious, with a different infused water featured daily (the strawberry and basil is especially good). Elevators are very slow. Rooms are a bit on the small side, with a lounge chair that's uncomfortable and a bed that's too hard. Exercise room is top-notch, with high-quality equipment and a nice overlooking view of the indoor-outdoor pool. The pool is a big winner for me, as this Marriott has staff on hand to monitor behavior - at one point one of the staff members nipped some kids' horseplay in the bud and make them walk a lap around the pool - but was nice andfriendly about it. Their monitoring made being in the pool area a nice experience.
