ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2014) - Whether a person is training for a marathon or working toward a fitness goal, outside support can often determine one's success. And while running groups and fitness apps are all well and good, savvy athletes look for properties like the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport when they travel. Unlike other Crystal City hotels near D.C., this property plays an active role in its guests' fitness goals, from serving as an ideal launch pad for any of the city's many marathons, to offering its latest, health-conscious promotion, the Adventure Package.
Designed to offer health-conscious travelers a fun way to stay on track, the Adventure Package includes complimentary self-parking and a fresh-fruit amenity upon arrival. After the healthy snack, guests can enjoy a good night's sleep -- crucial for top athletic performance -- at this hotel in Arlington, Virginia, where cotton-rich linens and fluffy pillows await. Breakfast for two the next morning is included as well, so guests can refuel with choices like egg-white frittatas, oatmeal with berries and, for those who like a reason to exercise, crunchy French toast.
After breakfast, guests can explore one of the many nearby running trails which are listed for their convenience and provided as part of the package. Of course, with marathons big and small scheduled throughout the year in the D.C. area, there's no shortage of ways to pound the pavement. And Arlington, VA hotels are ideally positioned to give visitors easy access to all the blood, sweat and tears on display at each one. Located steps from the Crystal City metro station, the hotel's convenient location makes it easy to get to race day activities.
Annual events like the Nike Women's Half Marathon, the Komen Global Race for the Cure® and the Marine Corps Marathon attract serious and amateur runners from all over the country, but there are plenty of smaller marathons that are just as entertaining. The Year of the Horse 5K/Great Walk to China 1 Mile (June 8); Lawyers Have Heart 10K, 5K and 3K (June 14); and Cops and Robbers Run (which includes obstacles, sirens and smoke on September 6) are just a few examples of races that are as fun as they are vigorous. And for the truly stout of heart (and muscle), triathlons like Hardcore Pain Camp DC (July 5) and Nation's Tri (September 7) promise challenges and satisfaction in equal parts.
No matter which way travelers like to stay active, few hotels near Arlington National Cemetery offer the diversity of support available at this property. From its convenient access to the D.C. area, to its state-of-the-art fitness center, to its healthy Adventure Package, this is one hotel that makes staying fit something anyone can do.
Available through December 31, 2014, the Adventure Package is valid for stays Thursday through Sunday. Travelers may secure the package by using the promotional code PK9 when making reservations.
