Crystal Gateway Marriott Partners With the Trust for The National Mall to Preserve an American Treasure

This Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, VA Is Helping to Revitalize and Preserve the National Park

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - Each year more than 30 million visitors visit "America's Front Yard," the National Mall to experience firsthand a piece of the nation's history and explore the monuments, museums and memorials. With the heavy traffic that the American treasure receives each year, a lot of the areas have fallen into disrepair and restoration costs have outweighed the available budgets. As a result, the Crystal Gateway Marriott has partnered with the Trust for the National Mall and is offering a "Check In and Help Out package" to help revitalize and preserve the national park for present and future generations.

Running from now through September 5, 2011, for every guest who takes advantage of the "Check In and Help Out package," the hotel will donate $5 per overnight stay to The Trust for the National Mall for the duration of the trip. In addition to this, guests of this hotel near Crystal City shops will also receive complimentary breakfast for two adults and children under 12, as well as the official Trust for the National Mall Viewbook.

According to David Marriott, the chief operations officer of the Eastern Region, "Marriott has deep roots in Washington, DC, dating back to 1927 when the company was founded by my grandparents," he said. "We have a long standing commitment to the community and are proud to partner with the Trust for National Mall to help restore this historic national park."

As one of the several Crystal City shop hotels, the Crystal Gateway Marriott newly renovated hotel is the ideal place for business and leisure travelers to stay when looking to enjoy comfortable accommodations.
