Drive, Park and Ride Through DC With Crystal Gateway Marriott's Convenient Package

Pentagon City Hotel Features Offer to Simplify the Logistics of Visiting the Nation's Capital

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2013) - It is said that the journey is as important as the destination, which makes the Crystal Gateway Marriott's summertime Transportation Package particularly tempting. Whether guests travel with family or friends, this package makes driving in to the city both convenient and fun.

The Transportation Package begins with complimentary self-parking, so guests don't have to worry about endless searches for parking spots or navigating paid-parking options. From there, visitors enjoy deluxe overnight accommodations and a $10 credit at the hotel gift shop, where they can stock up on snacks and drinks to enjoy poolside or en route to the many attractions in DC.

Of course, given this Pentagon City hotel's 82 suites, 300-threadcount linens, marble bathroom finishes and 32-inch HD televisions, guests may have a hard time leaving the room. Ergonomic desks and technology panels even make catching up on work a pleasure. And when it's time to get some fresh air, there's no better place to hang out and cool off than the sparkling indoor-outdoor pool.

The Transportation Package is designed to let guests make the most of their vacation. So after a morning spent poolside, guests can use their package's two all-day Metro passes to see sights like the National Mall, the Washington Monument, the White House, and Arlington National Cemetery. Best yet, guests don't have to walk far to board the Metro -- the hotel lobby features direct access.

With convenient parking, Metro passes, onsite Metro access, and even snacks all accounted for, the Transportation Package is the Pentagon City hotel deal for Washington, DC summer travel.

The Crystal Gateway Marriott's Transportation Package is available through September 1, 2013. Guests can learn more by calling 888-889-5994 and mentioning promotional code ARN, or visiting
