First time, will not be the last. Stayed here over the weekend in July and everything was wonderful. Can't say enough about the friendly staff, always willing to help when asking about the area. Metro just down the tunnel from the lobby along with shops and places to eat. Ate breakfast one morning at the hotel and it was very... More

My room in the Arlington Tower was comfortable and clean. Nice king bed with an easy chair, numerous electrical outlets, inviting bath and excellent water pressure. Great thermostat, blackout curtains, and the room was quiet. I was next to the elevator, and I heard nothing. The pool area was very nice and the Fitness Room was serviceable. The two high... More

Been here several times for business and it's always been great. Staff is very professional and friendly. Food is great in the lounge and rooms are always nice and clean. What more can you ask for?

Stayed here for two weeks. Had no issues and friendly staff were always eager to help or assist when asking for recommendations on things to do or places to go eat. Had a larger king bed room. Bed was extremely comfortable and the A/C was great.

For quite a while this has been my favorite DCA hotel. Sadly, the outstanding customer service - and it truly is outstanding - cannot overcome the fact that this property has deteriorated and is need of a refurb. The prime location makes it such that tourist occupancy will not be an issue so I understand the hesitancy on the part... More

I did not receive towels and amenities for two days. I was charged twice for parking, when they stated they would remove the parking. I had to go to the desk early in the morning when I was leaving to get my bill adjusted. The room was not a remodel room it was in wing two. What was great was... More

If anyone is looking to stay in a hotel, that is reasonably priced and right outside of Washington, look no further. The Gateway is located maybe 15 minutes outside of Washington DC however there is a connection to the underground mall that leads to the metro. The metro was super clean, our room was super clean and our rate included... More

The hotel for most of the year is very crowed. They host a lot of conferences and meetings here and in so doing there seems to always be a lot of commotion. For the routine business traveler I would not recommend the hotel (unless it is necessary because of it's location). The elevator at peak times of the morning and... More

Stayed at the Crystal Gateway Marriott for a conference for 3 nights. The hotel room was clean and updated. Housekeeping did a wonderful job keeping the room looking great.
