Which hotel near DCA is preferred?  Crystal Gateway Marriott, Crystal City Marriott or the Renaissance?

They all offer airport shuttles and a free breakfast for platinum guests.  You can walk to the metro from the Marriotts but need to catch a shuttle from the Ren.  The price is the same for my timeframe.  I seem to remember that I stayed at the Crystal city before and it was acceptable but not the others.
