In July, Marriott International unveiled a $35 million renovation of Arlington’s Crystal Gateway Marriott. The refresh includes the hotel’s meeting space, guest rooms, lobby, restaurant and bar, and Marriott’s M Club Lounge. Crystal Gateway Marriott offers almost 38,000 square feet of total event space, with a maximum of 27 breakout rooms. That includes two divisible ballrooms: the 16,000-square-foot Arlington Ballroom, which can accommodate as many as 2,100 seated guests in a theatre-style configuration, and the 12,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, which can accommodate as many as 1,500 seated guests in a theatre-style configuration.
