I've been staying at the Crystal City Marriott longer than many of the employees have been alive and have generally been pleased. Some of the trips have been for business and many for weekend get aways. It's hard to beat the central location on top of the Metro and room rates are typically half what they are in the city. My recent visit was an exception, I hope, from the usual stay.
Though the hotel didn't seem very full on Saturday night, we were less than thrilled with the room we received. Okay, I'm picky. I have a few favorite rooms which allow me to squeeze a little view out of an otherwise urban hotel. I always request them by number. None of those rooms seemed available through and we ended up in a room gazing at another building.
After dinner out, we decided to have a drink in the nicely renovated lobby lounge. I ordered a Glenlivite on the rocks and my wife a particular chardonnay. The server was wonderfully pleasant. She came back a few minutes later wondering just what a Glenlivite was. I located the bottle on the shelf and pointed her in its direction. She came back a few minutes later with the menu trying to figure out which wine I had ordered. Very nice person who was obviously pushed into a job with no training.
Overall not the type of relaxing weekend visit one would expect from a full service hotel.
