I stayed here for a conference in September 2012. The staff is great, extremely helpful and very friendly. Parking is convenient, if expensive (although not out of the realm of other properties just outside our Nation's Capital). The food served as part of the conference was slightly above average. The rooms were very nice with plenty of space. The bathroom,... More

This is a typical Gaylord property, well appointed, well staffed and quite large. What makes it unique is the locale. Situated in the National Harbor development, you have great views of the Potamac River and D.C.. Rooms are very nice, there are several restaurants and bars on property, and many more within walking distance. You can be at the National... More

Enormous, extremely well-organized and well-equipped, with very friendly staff and all the support services on-site. The shopping and dining in the National Harbor area offers diversity beyond the hotel's considerable resources, so you won't be bored. Naturally, it's expensive (ever price Georgetown real estate?), and you can easily go over $100 for a family of four and a modest dinner... More

Stayed for one night last December and plan on going back this year. The hotel decorations are beautiful. We stayed in one of the rooms with a balcony facing the atrium and could sit out there and watch the fountain shows and characters. My daughter was 12 when she was there and still liked all the activities. Making the gingerbread... More

The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are very well maintained. The rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff is exceptionally friendly and go out of there way to help and make your stay enjoyable. The atrium is amazing with lots of seating areas, restaurants, sports pub ... lots to do. The cost to stay is a bit pricy... More

We attended the I Can do it! Conference this past weekend and we did stay at the hotel. This hotel is a beautiful, well maintained property on a gorgeous waterfront setting! The rooms are very nicely appointed as well. We found the customer service to be a bit lacking for this level of hotel. The first day we returned to... More

The Gaylord National was a wonderful place to stay for a DC area visit. It has a nice atmosphere and all of the employees were very friendly and helpful. The only downside is how large it is. You can easily get lost in it and if you have a room overlooking the atrium it is very noisy and hard to... More

Although the hotel and customer service was good, this hotel's objective is "nothing is free"...for a $200 regular room, plus added fees $15 for the resort, $30 tax and $50 incidential charge "in case you use their phone, room service, etc." that takes 7 days to be refunded. They added parking for $25, we took a cab, nothing is complimentary,... More

I recently stayed here for a convention for 3 nights. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport. Check-in was smooth and easy. I was given a room on the 16th floor (I think there are 17 or 18)...I had a great view of the harbor and the sunset. The rooms were renovated, nice, clean and spacious. The hotel... More

We came across the birthday special--2nd night free--and decided to go check it out. Everyone we came into contact with was very polite. Easy check in. Clean room with good amenities. Loved having the atrium balcony. Felt like we were on a cruise ship--a good thing for our tastes. Only ate in one restaurant: Old Hickory Steakhouse which was expensive... More
