“Outstanding hotel for business and leisure.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Highly recommend this hotel if visiting the Washington D.C. area for either business or vacation. The hotel staff is very friendly, effiicient and helpful. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel is located on the Crystal City Metro stop. The Crystal City shops are also located at this stop. You don't have to go outside for either the shops or the Metro. There is very easy indoor access to restaurants, fast food, drug store etc. In addition to the hotel restaurants, there is also an Einstein Bagel shop in the lobby. For Starbucks fans - it's just a short walk away in the Crystal City shops. Absolutely perfect location for going into D.C. or to Alexandria.

I stayed at this property for a tattoo convention and couldn't have been happier with the staff, amenities, and location of the hotel. The staff was very friendly, accommodating, and didn't seem to bat an eye at the hundreds of individuals with body modifications of all degrees that had descended upon the hotel for the weekend. The hotel is conveniently located near a Metro station, so getting into DC is a 10 minute ride. There are several restaurants, bars, drugstores, etc. located in the underground shopping center connected to the hotel or within a short walking distance. The rooms were clean and updated and the room rate I paid per night was well below any rate I have paid at a Marriott before and was well worth it.

Stayed here one night due to the easy metro access. Used Marriott points but rates here were low on weekend. Room was great and staff extremely friendly and helpful. A great experience here on weekend of wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery.

Great price, location and service. Free awesome breakfast in the morning. The hotel sits on top of the metro making it very convenient for trips into the city. Nothing not to like. Best hotel for the price we have ever been to.

We have wanted to stay here before because of the location but the rates were too high. Over the holidays with no business travelers the rates were amazing. This hotel exceeded my expectation. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. They greeted my 18 month grandson by name and gave him attention like he was their special guest. The last time I was treated this well was on a cruise. I know the hotel was mostly empty but for us it was to our advantage. Thank you, Marriott. I hope to return soon.

The hotel has Reagan National Airport shuttle service, but is only one stop from the airport on the Metro. The Crystal City Metro stop is directly under the hotel. It seems like a long walk up the tunnel to the hotel, but it is not bad unless you have lots of luggage. The hotel has a good restaurant (with classic Marriott burgers) and a decent bar. Things are quiet on the weekend as the hotel caters primarily to Monday-Friday business travelers. Shopping and restaurants are close by in the underground mall and nearby multi-level mall at Pentagon City. There are also several convenient restaurants and neighborhood bars, including Legal Seafood, Cafe Italia, Portofino, Morton's, etc. I have stayed at this hotel many years ago and it is just as well maintained today as in the past. The Concierge Lounge is very nice and offers a very good breakfast and decent evening snacks. With Gold or higher medallion status, they waive the Internet access fee.

Hard to find the driveway/entrance, which goes underground, other than that.. GREAT HOTEL. Was a bit pricy, but for the area was reasonable. Clean, comfortable beds, awesome pillows! Great nights sleep! Hotel is very clean, nice welcoming lobby. Front-desk staff was very helpful and gave us lots of information on seeing the sights in D.C. Located VERY close to LOTS of good restaurants, shopping the subway over to D.C. If you want to treat your family to some very nice digs for the night, you can't go wrong with this hotel! Marriot should be proud of this property.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a great view.
