The conference rooms were nice, and the hotel rooms clean. The bed was comfortable, and the desk was nice for work (since this is a conference center). The layout is confusing, but after two days, I had it pretty well figured out, and it's what I would expect from such a large facility. I would like to say the food... More

Dear Karen N. Thank you for your wonderful comments, we only wish we knew about the hot water situation earlier. We will be sure to check out that room and add the phone number to a directory by the phone. We are very happy with our food program and we are getting lots of wonderful comments. So we thank you...

Wonderful facility, amazing staff, and delicious food. I've been to a few events here including awards ceremonies, women's conferences, breakfasts, and soon-to-be chef's table. Very excited about that one. I have been impressed each time with the facility and people operating it.

Gosh, Ranna! Thank you for your great review. So many people in Leesburg and Loudoun don't know of our great facility and the changes we've made recently. Further, many local people believe that we remain a dedicated facility for the needs of one organization!!! That changed a long time ago….currently, we are an education facility (conference’s, events and social catering)... More

The staff are the reason I gave the high rating here. They are always friendly and quick to offer a hand. I had a bad experience with my room when I first arrived but it was switched to another. The new room is tiny but clean. Food is included here and there's always a wide variety on hand. There were... More

Thank you, Biff, for your comments. Our staff work very hard at making everyone’s stay pleasant and easy for them to get around. The National is an education center designed for distraction free learning. It is not a hotel; nor do we try to be one, other than to provide an excellent learning environment. We have found that most attendees... More

Excellent place. Rooms are small but as explained that's the purpose so that you do not spend all your time in the rooms. Great amenities, good food, friendly staff and pretty grounds. I would recommend this place to anyone coming here for a conference.

Dear Josh S. Thank you for your great review and comments. We are very specific about what we do here at The National; we are a conference training facility. Not a hotel or resort. It's very important that our guests make that connection, and we're delighted to see your comments on TripAdvisor. Thank you again. More

I stayed here for 6 days for a recent training I was coaching at. The rooms are very small here, as you'd expect for a conference center, but there were dead bugs in my co-workers empty drawers when she checked in (room next to mine!). The layout of the center itself, and each building, is very confusing. There was nothing... More

Having read some of the reviews I somewhat dreaded my stay but in the end I actually quite enjoyed the two nights I spent at the National Convention Centre.

It is a testament to its experimental design that it is still a good place to meet for very large groups almost half a century later. The great food and the facility’s ability to handle any (and I do mean ANY) scale meeting pretty much makes up for its shortcomings. The Dulles International Airport sits midway between Washington DC proper... More

Thank you, FlemBrimstone, for your recent comments during your stay at The National. There’s really so much more to The National than the guest rooms. The National is a training and meeting facility for a variety of groups. Meeting planners choose the National often because the rooms are small and that encourages attendees to visit the common areas to discuss,... More

I stayed at the NCC for five nights for a training conference. The first thing to realize is that this is a conference center and not originally setup as a hotel, in my opinion.
