Great hotel for business or travel. The hotel straddles the Crystal City Underground, with convenient access to the metro system. I stay at this property often, and have never been disappointed. The staff is great, and if you have the pleasure of meeting Thao when you check in, she will ensure that your stay is outstanding. Thao is just one...

Securing a room in the DC area can sometimes be a challenge. I conduct business around the Washington Navy Yard. This hotel literally sits on top of one of the Metro stops so commuting is not an issue. Clean and professional, I've made this hotel my go-to for business travel.

First, I am a "Marriott guy".....not an employee, but a Lifetime Platinum, so I do tend to stay at Marriott properties. The Marriott Crystal Gateway is a wonderful hotel. Nicely appointed, as you would expect from a Marriott. As a platinum member I was given an upgrade to a junior suite without asking. The front desk personnel were excellent, friendly,...

I had really good service last week at this hotel. Especially when I forgot and left my expensive earphones in the room. Eunice James was very helpful, found the earphones , and sent them back to me. I thank you very much. I also got a very good room. I am a Marriott Rewards member.
