For visiting Washington DC this is a great choice: the Crystal City Metro station is connected to the hotel lobby and it is only a 10 minute ride to L´Enfant Plaza station (near the National Mall).
It has a swimming pool that in summer is open 10 am to 10 pm, and if breakfast seems expensive, you can find many options in the tunnel that connects the lobby with the Metro Station.
The front desk can have very friendly staff (Sue, for example) sometimes not...
Rooms and bathrooms are nice, but... during my 4 day stay the housekeeper did a lousy job: She did the beds but left some pillows on the floor and 2 days she did not clean the carpet at all. First time that something like this happened to me at a Marriott.
