“Conference Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Was staying at this hotel for a conference. Excellent hotel for a conference. Everything is nearby and easy access to Metro. Washington D.C. Is so close and accessible. Close to shopping, restaurants, and attractions. Hotel bar is very good but service and be slow if they are overwhelmed.

Really nice lobby with free wifi...Lots of spaces to sit and hide...
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful...
Metro around the corner(yellow line), Lots of shopping/food underneath (Crystal City Shops) in case of inclement weather...
Great concierge breakfast, and snacks...
I'll be back...

Room Tip: Marriott rewards baby...and ask for an upgrade... corner suites have views in both the sitting area...

I stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. I was just outside the Washington Metro Crystal CIty stop. I think I stayed at this exact same location about 6-7 years ago. Not much has changed. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. Check in was great. THe neighborhood was great. I found a Costco nearby. The Crystal CIty mall is a M-F place and mostly for the workers in the area. It did have a great Au Bon Pain. The Pentagon City mall was within walking distance. It had a great Nordstrom, California Pizza Kitchen and a really good Harris Teeter.

Price was great. Would stay again if I got the same rate.

This hotel is conveniently located to the Metro station with quick access to the DC area. Easy to get to. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Two points - first, I booked online and specifically for the "complimentary" shuttle which was supposed to run between hotels - non-existent. Second, call and ask about parking rates before booking online. I got socked on my way out.

As I walked into this hotel from the parking garage situated below (no spots guaranteed), I was greeted with a spectacular lobby- the kind of lobby every hotel should have! Check-in was easy. The room was clean and nice, nothing spectacular, but the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Getting into the city was a breeze, just walk through the underground shops/tunnels that connect right from the hotel to the metro station! Overall, this place is in the perfect location and the perfect place to stay for any trip to the DC area.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from rooms very close to the elevators

You can get on train without going outside, nice. Also, a whole underground of shopping, eating & drinking. In addition, the Marriott restaurant staff is the BEST. I was there for a funeral and this is a perfect location to Arlington Cemetery, a short ride away. I will stay there when returning to see museums, only a few trsin stops away. So convient. I almost forgot...free shuttle to/from airport.
Nice!

If you have to be in Crystal City and you have to stay at a hotel, this will do just fine. It is very close to the airport, and metro. Food is okay, nothing special. Bar is loud and comfortable, but food is just okay. Good place for meetings.
