Stayed here during Cherry Blossom in April 2014 - was helpful to be "quieter" off the beaten path of the mobs. Hotel has a free shuttle that will take you to the Old Town Alexandria King Street Metro and from there you can get around all of DC for a full day outing. The shuttle is on a schedule so... More

The aloft Washington National Harbor is a hip spot in the new National Harbor complex. Friendly staff, relaxed lounge, and nice amenities, in a hotel along the Potomoc River, within walking distance of restaurants, entertainment, and shopping. There is a free shuttle to the subway system which allows you to avoid the Washington DC traffic crunch to get to all... More

Had the pleasure of staying here 4 nights during August 2014, on business. Was a bit hesitant because of a recent review, but my worries were unfounded and my stay was quite nice. Hotel is located right in the middle of the restaurant/retail area of Oxen Hill/National Harbor, so finding a wide variety of shopping and dining options is easy.... More

Autumn, Aubrey, Maurice and Chris were the best! All of them were extremely polite and helpful! The Aloft is located in the center of the National Harbor, so quite convenient to all dining and shopping. I hope this hotel will always be there for my trips to the National Harbor!

My husband surprised me on our anniversary date 8/10 with an overnight stay at this hotel. As soon as we walked in , we were greeted warmly by a young man by the name of "Marvin". He found our reservations immediately and from there, the service was fast and efficient. Marvin even recommended restaurants and attractions in the area. The... More

I stayed here for a convention not to long ago and was amazed by the service and cleanliness of this property. I work in the hospitality business so I know what is expected out of a hotel. I showed up over 2 hours before check-in hoping to get an early check in. Nothing but smiles on the front desk staff... More

He always had an amazing smile on his face he greeted every guest that walked in the door while checking me in.. I was not having the best day. But this... More

This is an attractive, clean, contemporary hotel with a great location. Don't expect the normal hospitality you get from other hotels though. Most of the employees seem to care less about the guests. By that I mean, no hellos when you walk by or asking how your stay was. Regular rooms are nice, but very small. Parking is across the... More

Spent 3 nights there. Internet never worked. Complaints got lip service but still no internet. Room was worn and small. Shower mixer handle practically fell off. Mirrored door to bathroom was cracked at the bottom. Breakfast items were overpriced. There are lots of other options in this beautiful suburb...you should run away from Aloft and to one of them.
