The countdown has begun… we are 139 days away from Phi Sigma Pi’s 2017 National Convention! This year we’re headed back to Washington, D.C. and we couldn’t be more excited, but this time we will be staying and hosting Convention in The Crystal Gateway Marriott. Check out why you are going to love this hotel and will never want to leave Convention!
The Crystal Gateway Marriott is extremely accessible. It is located just minutes from Washington, D.C. and is less than one mile from Reagan National Airport. It’s even located above the Crystal City Metro station. That’s right- you can catch the D.C./Arlington Metro from right inside the hotel! Choosing to stay with a friend or relative in Washington, D.C.? This make it super easy for you to get to the hotel each day! They also do offer a shuttle to and from the airport.
Fitness & Recreation
In the event that you find yourself with some down time during Convention, the Crystal Gateway Marriott boasts both an indoor and an outdoor pool! There is also a fitness center so you can keep healthy.
The hotel offers a buffet breakfast, continental breakfast, full American breakfast and hot breakfast (all for a fee). There is also a restaurant called 15th & Eads which serves locally crafted food with regionally grown and sourced ingredients and also has a coffee bar called Illy Coffee to get you fueled for Grand Chapter in the morning. If you’re looking to get outside of the hotel for a nice dinner, there are a plethora of close options including McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood & Steaks, Lebanese Taverna and The Portofino Restaurant.
Packing can be tough. Here are the things that you don’t have to bring because they will already be in your room:
- Complimentary bottled water
- Iron and ironing board
- Hair dryer
The room also has a mini-fridge to keep your leftovers fresh and a coffee maker so you can drink your coffee while you’re getting ready.
