Desk staff very helpful and responsive; hotel is clean, cool and well maintained; room was very modern and comfortable; bathroom shower is extraordinary; lighting in bathroom is terrific; appreciated being in Arlington tower--extremely quiet with little foot or elevator traffic--ideal for me; food was exceptional--the talk of fresh high-quality ingredients is not just talk. I am a TOUGH critic and I enjoyed my stay thoroughly. Well done!

WiFi is not free. I feel like this is a pretty basic amenity in 2019. However the rest of our week long stay was amazing! Felt like home for sure!

Great hotel

We visited visited Crystal Gateway Marriott a few days ago. The hotel and hotel is very modern and updated. Very close to DC area. There is a tunnel from the hotel to an underground mini mall which was great for food and necessities. My only complaint was our beds were uncomfortable, they were very soft and sunk a little in the middle. I will definitely stay there again.

I love the convenience of this hotel. I went from Reagan National to the hotel in the metro and the only time I had to step outside was on the metro platform at the airport. The staff is friendly and professional and the room was clean and well maintained. This is my fourth stay at this hotel and if I need to travel to this area again this is where I want to stay,

Nice hotel near airport

Pros: Very helpful staff
Cons: Better signs to elevator
Location: Short shuttle hop to airport, can walk to METRO and use it to go into Washington D.C. or nearby areas.
Needed a hotel near the Reagan Airport, found this one on-line. Good value for the cost--close to METRO (short walk), good shuttle service, room clean and roomy. Very helpful staff--even figured out how to use an app on my new tablet.

a shining star, outstanding hotel in DC

I read reviews for hours and chose this location. Everything actually exceeded my expectations. When we checked in, our initial room had a rattle in the air system. They quickly reassigned us and we had no further issues. The rooms are impeccably clean, the beds are very comfortable, and I did not hear any noise from any other guests the entire time we were there (like thru the walls, or at night). The staff was very friendly, especially Morgan who took the time to explain the metro and also how to access the M Lounge (access to which we purchased along with the room at the time of reservation). One thing that pleasantly surprised me is that the TV offered access to your own Netflix subscription, it was very nice to watch some familiar favorite shows while we were relaxing at the end of the night. I cannot speak highly enough about this facility, the staff, and the positive experience. It really made the trip a trip of a lifetime!

Crystal City

Staff was very friendly. Room was comfortable, shower was the best. There is an underground shopping center with dining, shopping everything. The hotel food could be better not bad just thought it was going to be more when you taking in the hotel overall. Bar staff is friendly. Wish the room had a microwave since it has a fridge and coffee maker. And as a coffee drinker was dispointed that the "coffee shop" in the hotel was just a machine in the snack store that wasn't working.

Nice hotel

Just across the river with an easy access to all points of interest in Washington, DC. Drive to National Mall takes about 5 minutes. I'm glad of my decision to stay at this hotel with my family.
