I am a snob when it comes to Marriott. I hate to say it but I won’t stay at the town place or residence. I enjoy Marriott lounges as a platinum mbr although a lot are becoming disappointing. The Marriott crystal city is the best I have been to in the last 10 years. It’s open 24 hrs. The staff will make you a cappuccino (hit for me). The breakfast is outstanding! A chef makes omelette and eggs and waffles etc the line has steaming hot food with biscuits and gravely and different sausages etc huge fruit bar and all the other extras. They have adorable canisters with mixed trail and gummie bears in another and have soda and juice and coffee 24/7. Afternoon food is always top notch with fresh breads and salmon and other items. I will always stay there if I am in town it’s fantastic and centrally located for dc/va with the metro attached.
