Travelers Can Live #LikeALocal at Crystal City Hotels Near D.C.

A New Package at Marriott Hotels Gives Visitors the Inside Scoop on What to See and Do in the District

ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- One of the best parts about traveling is the nature of discovery. That great hole-in-the-wall frequented by locals, the independent boutique with perfect souvenirs, the breathtaking view you find after getting lost -- these are the sorts of memories that punctuate a good trip. Luckily for visitors to D.C. this summer, Marriott is fast-tracking the discovery process with its Weekend #LikeALocal package. Instead of trolling through tourist traps, travelers can book the package at any one of these four hotels in Arlington, V.A. and check out the insider tips from local Marriott associates.

Guests who book the Weekend #LikeALocal package, available through September 7, 2014, can enjoy breakfast for two, free Wi-Fi, late check-out (when available) and a $20 Uber ride credit (for new users only).

Because Uber uses a special app to connect riders with local drivers, this part of the package means travelers can spend all day wandering around the area's many attractions and not worry about how to get from the tree-lined avenues of Georgetown, to the underground corridors of Crystal City, and back to any one of these stylish hotels in Arlington, VA. Participating hotels include:

  • Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport, which offers on-site Metro access, free airport shuttle service and sumptuous guest rooms.
  • Crystal Gateway Marriott, minutes from DC and Northern Virginia hot spots with its prime location in Crystal City and metro access from its lobby.
  • Key Bridge Marriott, whose position next to the Potomac and across the dramatic bridge from Georgetown translates to panoramic views of the D.C. area.
  • Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, where the sleek contemporary style is both beautiful and brilliant, thanks to its LEED Gold status, tech-friendly features and luxuriously outfitted guest rooms.

Visitors can also try their luck in the WEEKEND #LikeALocal Sweepstakes, where a two-night stay in Washington, D.C. and a $50 Uber credit are up for grabs. And everyone can check out these local favorites while they're in town.

SHOP #LikeALocal: The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City
If there is a store you love or want to find, chances are it's located within this Shangri-La of shopping centers. More than 170 stores and restaurants await, including Apple, Coach, Nordstrom and Macy's, and they're all just a short jaunt away from these Pentagon City, VA hotels.

LIVE #LikeALocal: Alexandria, Virginia
Embrace the integration of history and modernity by heading to Alexandria, where the Old Town Farmers' Market has attracted vendors and customers for 260 years. On the way, tourists must drop in for contemporary Southern fare at the Evening Star café in Del Ray. And getting back to Georgetown is both scenic and easy for those traveling by water taxi along the Potomac.

WORK OUT #LikeALocal: Custis Trail
Not for the faint of calf muscle, this hilly, wooded trail is a favorite among bikers, joggers and commuters. Sightseers can look forward to a good workout that includes views of Arlington Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial on the way to Mount Vernon.

EAT #LikeALocal: The Liberty Tavern, Northside Social and Bakeshop Bakery
It'd be easy to come to Arlington and do nothing but eat. The city is home to the likes of The Liberty Tavern, after all, a beloved Clarendon institution whose inventive American menu hits it out of the park every time, especially for Sunday brunch. Coffee breaks, meanwhile, are so enlightened at Northside Social that guests can easily be tempted to stay for lunch, dinner and wine. And when a sweet treat is in order -- think oatmeal cream pies, cupcakes, macarons and so much more -- Bakeshop has the inspired-by-home, crafted-by-professionals antidote within its locally owned walls.

STARGAZE #LikeALocal: Kettler Capitals Iceplex
Think ice skating is fun? It's even more so when you glide through the same rink where the Washington Capitals practice!
