    I parked in the G1 area which was convenient to the elevators. However I felt each parking area should have an individual parking number or letter to facilitate finding it on return.

    Process needs to be refined especially with the online registration; complicated with deposit and final pay; machine did not take white and green ticket initially; had to keep submitting and finally after 6 minutes the gate was raised; still need a human at the gate to answer questions; not using this parking facility again...however, excellent front door attendants.

    Finding parking in the garage in the middle of the day is time consuming. Add an extra 20 minutes for it.

    I did not know the check out procedure. Meaning, I did not know that I had to present my ticket to the parking attendant in the front of the hotel, pay and get another ticket. Now that I am aware of this very simple procedure, I am certain to use this service again. Thanks.

    I take both plane and Amtrak trips almost weekly.

    Overall, this parking has worked very well for me when I have used it 3 times in the last 12 months. Note that this is an underground hotel parking basement and you will be competing with hotel guests for spots. I have never had a problem arriving mid-day. Plan for 40 minutes from when you arrive at the hotel before you arrive at the airport. The shuttle stops at 2 other hotels before getting to the airport. As an alternative, this hotel is connected to the Crystal City metro station by a nice underground walkway. If you are a regular Metro rider, this is a nice alternative to waiting for the shuttle. Finally, there is no longer a toll booth with a live person in the garage. Be sure to keep your "green" ticket you get upon entry. You will need this to exit the garage AFTER you have shown your website receipt and received the "blue" payment ticket from the valet to exit the garage. Also, note that this website charges a $5 booking fee. This website will collect the $5 fee plus one day of parking as part of your reservation. The remainder will be paid directly to the car valet upon your return to pick up your car. Also, the valet does not touch your car or keys. Valet just collects payment for hotel.

    Worked well, but need to fix the instructions for gate entry and payment at Crystal Gateway Marriott hotel. This hotel has changed their procedures.

    Suggest making people know if there multiple stops on the shuddle to the airport. It would help in planning on being at the parking area in a timely manner.

    I parked at Marriott Crystal Gateway. Upon return, I didn't know where I was supposed to pay the balance of my parking, as the instructions didn't state that we are supposed to pay at the valet desk (not the hotel cashier nor at the garage). We would not have wasted 15 minutes getting to our car, drive to the exit only to realize we can't pay there, and to walk back to the hotel, ask the front desk, wait for the valet attendant, return to the garage.

    Happy to find you. It worked out well. To and from airport was fairly easy, just had to wait a bit coming back. Spaces are a bit cramped but I didn't hit anything. Girl at the hotel entrance was very helpful last night at midnight. Might distinguish the areas of the parking a bit more clearly so we can find the car on return.

    Marriott Crystal Gateway Hotel in DC changed payment procedures and did not tell us that you had to go to the bell captain desk and pay there to get a ticket to exit. We got stuck in the garage and had to hunt what to do. May want to correct the procedures on your form.

    I have used this location many times, lately I have had nothing but problems. two of the last three times I have shown up and there was no parking available. The shuttle service has also become less than pleasant. I have had to wait more than 30 minuets each of my last three trips for a shuttle to show up at the airport. Think I will be looking for a new location.

    The parking lot is underground and had ample parking. The shuttle leaves for the airport every 20 minutes, and stops by another hotel on the way. It made my trip to the airport take almost 40 minutes from the time I parked my car. Overall, it's a good option to save money vs the airport economy parking for long-term parking.

    hard to find a parking spot. Shuttle took a long time to come.

    Loved the service. But your instructions on how to retrieve & pay for the parking were wrong, giving us a bit of a hassle. Instructions said to bring ticket and receipt to hotel reception .... we went down to the car and retrieved the ticket and gave to reception (after a wait). Was told to give the ticket and receipt at the parking lot exit. Just added an annoying bit of confusion and delay. Your instructions could be improved :=) Otherwise, everything worked perfectly and we're glad to have discovered and used your service.

    We didn't use for a flight, but to avoid the crazy fees for parking at a downtown hotel for our visit to DC!

  • Meryl S. June 11th, 2014

    We have parked at this lot several times in the last year and everything has always been as promised. The shuttle to and from the airport is on time - we've never missed a flight. The drivers are cordial and helpful. Never have trouble finding a spot. Will continue to use the service and recommend it highly.

  • Matt B. May 3rd, 2014

    Very convenient location as the hotel has underground access to Crystal City shops & Metro. No issues with parking or when leaving. Not a lot of open spots but fit my midsize SUV just fine. Show cashier your reservation email or you'll get charged normal rate. Did not use airport shuttle but did notice it seems to loops to many of the Marriott chains- & there's quite a few of them in the area. Parking entrance is just past lobby door- easy to miss as it looks like part of the driveway.
