Staying in Crystal City you have several choices for hotels. We stayed in two, the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport and the Sheraton Crystal City hotel. Here is a comparison:
Check-in and Room Assignment. My husband is a long-time Platinum Marriott member, and we usually score some good perks. Not at this Marriott. We booked and paid for a concierge level room, but we would put on a middle level, near the elevator and with a connecting room. At the Sheraton, we have a low-level membership, yet we were placed on the concierge level.
Rooms. The rooms were comparable. Both were nicely furnished with marble bathrooms and high quality amenities. They were comparable in size. The Sheraton bed was much more comfortable, and the room was much quieter – the quality of sleep was better at Sheraton.
Location. Both hotels offered free airport shuttles. The Sheraton provided a more professional level of service. Both hotels are located right next to the Crystal City subway stop and restaurants.
Other. Both hotels had very nice, recently renovated lobbies and good business centers. We had excellent service at both hotels. The price for both hotels was about the same. We were disappointed at the Marriott because we booked a concierge level room on Friday and the lounge is closed Friday night/Saturday morning and we were placed in a concierge level room. Note: the room rate was $199 under the rates for standard rooms and $119 under the package rates which included breakfast for two.
Bottom line: Both hotels are so similar, I would select by price and your preferred hotel membership.
