Nice to stay .suze of room is big and comfortable

Just a night in Arlington for work related. Nothing more to add. Thank you

I was expecting a complimentary breakfast. That didn't happen. I was upset to find a $30.00 bill for self parking for one night! That of which I was never,ever informed about. When I went to the front desk that were definitely not going to do anything about it. It felt like a total price gouge.

Great stay and location! Underground shops and metro access are super convenient!!

The stay was comfortable. The room was good size, cozy and clean. Breakfast was great.

Great hotel.. Great for the price.. I recommend you to includes parking and breakfast in your package.

Hotel looks as though it had a recent upgrade. Looks like a nice addition

We stayed for 5 days. Shops and metro near by. There was construction going on in lobby so we avoided sleeping in.

The room bathroom had to be cleaned and upon black light inspection the sheets was not changed The hotel had an event I had already paid parking they charged me again without notification let the front staff know the only thing she did was offer me a free parking pass but I only had rental for one day I metro because of parking expenses so I lost 29.00 dollars for no fault of my own. Also parking isn't a 24 hour pass it's a daily pass so if you leave and come back to the room after midnight you have to pay another day. Dirty room dust in baseboard corners windows dirty tub dirty I've stayed at cheaper hotels with cleaner rooms

The staff member that checked us in was extremely pleasant and helpful.

We last stayed at Crystal City Gateway Marriott in June 1988 and loved the direct tunnel access to Crystal City Underground and the Metro. The hotel was very nice then in 1988 and now in 2015. Hotel staff were all helpful, friendly and courteous. My only complaint was the lack of free in-room wifi but it was available in the lobby - okay but not nearly as convenient. The last hotel we stayed at, Crystal City Hyatt Regency Airport did have free wifi but we much preferred the direct access to the Underground and Metro offered by Crystal Gateway Marriott

We came back from a cruise out of Baltimore and stayed just one night in DC. Hotel was easy to get to from Union Station by Metro. Bought a Senior Rail Pass and went to all parts of DC by Metro. Metro accessible by tunnel directly from Hotel and only one stop from Reagan-National Airport. Will definitely stay there again when in DC.

Is my 3rd time coming back to this hotel, it has a metro station right under the lobby, amazing!!!!, pool is nice and roofed, very comfortable place, will return.

This hotel verified the hospitality that Marriott is known for. Very nice hotel, staff was friendly and helpful. Fitness center was open 24 hours which fit my schedule perfectly. My only complaint was no microwave in my room and while they offered free Wi-Fi, it was only in the lobby. If you wanted Wi-Fi in your room, you had to pay for it. Very easy access to Metro and Crystal City Mall. You don't need your car! I would definitely stay here again on my next trip.

This hotel was clean, and the staff was very polite and responsive to our every need. They made our experience spectacular.

All was good except a mini-fridge and a microwave would have been great. Location close to the metro made it a breeze to sight see.

I was here for the week to see Amma. The location was 10" from RCA (Reagan Internat'l), the room was quiet and the white noise from the AC was helpful with not hearing other guests. I desire a quiet space when traveling and this was perfect. Bed very comfy, convenient shuttle, decent food, connected to Crystal City Shops where Starbucks is located. Highly recommend.

Stayed here for a few nights for business travel. The hotel is clean and many of the staff are very attentive and working hard to make this a good place to stay. That said, my room was not serviced on one night of my stay, and there was a mix up with charging my credit card for the room when I had already paid online. These issues were dealt with quickly and professionally, but kept the stay from being ideal. Reasonable rates given the easy access to city center, although in room wifi is expensive (free in lobby). The area around the hotel and the adjoining mall are totally unremarkable, so unless you're attending a conference at the hotel itself, you'll be spending all your time out. Safe and clean atmosphere, which was welcome after long days of work and dinner out in the city.

the hotel was really clean an everyone was helpful

We enjoy so much our visit !! Everything was perfect... the room cleanliness, the comfort... and no need to go out to take the subway. There is a direct access from the lobby !!
