We ordinarily do not review lodging owned/operated by the major chains because they are predictable (and the staff her is representative of Marriott-excellence). The exception to that rule is perhaps the Courtyard in Crystal City, chosen because of proximity to DCA. Arriving after midnight (because of a major flight delay), we were warmly greeted with, "We have upgraded you." That, perhaps was a warning. Situated in a cavernous room on the 14th floor, no room, domestic nor international, we have occupied in the last decade has been noisier. The elevator ran throughout the night and had our bed been in the elevator shaft itself, it would not have been noisier. The deadbolts would not engage... so perhaps vigilance as a reflection of inability to sleep was not that problematic.
Our suggestion: Avoid if you wish sleep. Sleeping on the runway at DCA might well be quieter.
Recommendation to Marriott: Implode this facility and build anew, this time perhaps spending a few extra bucks on soundproofing.
