There are eight Marriotts in the DC area close to the metro lines. The locations are: Woodley Park, College Park, two in Crystal City, Metro Center, Rosslyn, Tysons Corner and White Flint.
You’ll find the best deal in the Rosslyn area of Arlington, where that Marriott has the best overall rates, mild parking fee, easy three blocks to the metro station and quick 10 minute commute into Downtown DC. Rosslyn is a good location that can appeal to any traveler and offers a good selection of restaurants and activities both in the area and nearby.
The Metro Center Marriott has the same rates for both weekdays and weekends and is only a block away from the metro station, but has a very expensive parking fee. For this location, you pay for the convenience of being directly in Downtown DC. The Adam’s Morgan location is close to the National Zoo in Woodley Park and is only a block away from the metro station. This Marriott is only a 10 minute commute into DC, and has high rates during weekdays and an expensive parking fee. Crystal City has two Marriotts, both only a block from the metro station and 15 minutes away from Downtown DC. The rates are similar to one another, with moderate to moderate/high weekday prices and lower weekend rates.
Tysons Corner has the cheapest weekend rates, plunging below $100 per night. The hotel is close to plenty of great shopping near two shopping centers, and is about three blocks to the metro station. The commute into DC typically takes 30 minutes by metro, but watch out for hectic traffic and pedestrian flow as Tysons Corner can get very busy, especially during weekends.
White Flint is the farthest Marriott from Downtown DC, typically taking 30-40 minutes to commute. This Marriott is two blocks away from the metro station and can be found north of Bethesda close to I-270. Though rates drop on weekends, tourists may not like the location and prefer to be closer to DC.
