I stayed at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center for four nights, attending a conference held at the venue. This 2,000-room megahotel is built around an atrium, a bizarre combination of streets and parks, inside a giant air-conditioned glass cube. The rooms with balconies face this weird area, while the rooms facing the real world outside have no balconies.... More

I stayed at the hotel from April 13-18th and paid an exorbitant amount of money for substandard accomodations. The bed was literally the quality you'd expect at a one-star hotel. I heard every conversation in the rooms bordering mine. The cellphone reception in the hotel is spotty so I had to make several long distance phone calls during my stay... More

I stayed at the Gaylord National Hotel during my first trip to the DC area. This hotel is beautiful from the grounds, to the lobby to the spa to the rooms. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is only about a 10 minute cab ride to the DC. So it is conveniently located to the National Mall... More

I recently stay at the Gaylord national hotel for a wedding. The hotel is new and beautiful and has great views as long as you get the right room. Unfortunately we found ourselves waiting in-line nearly everywhere we went, including the front desk, the garage, and every restaurant we visited. National Harbor is a new location and I understand that... More

Huge hotel complex with very nice conference rooms. Our conference was well planned. Only issue was the food was often cold for the conferences. Also, there really isn't a place to eat breakfast despite several restaurants in the complex. There are several hotels close by and several restaurants but they are pricy. Go into Old town-- Alexandria, Virginia for better... More

Our reservations were for a King Room to attend a conference. We checked in at 10pm on April 10th. When we got to the room, we found out it was setup with two Queen beds. When we called the front desk they told us they gave us this room because of a better view (it looked out at a Parking... More

We made discounted reservations for a conference here which made our stay a huge bargain. It would have been well worth a higher price. Check in was quick and efficient, although we would like to have had someone carry or offer to carry our bags when we first entered the hotel. The architecture was spectacular, lots of glass for plenty... More

We arrived April 10th and left the 16th (this morning, early AM). We were here for a conference that my husband was attending. The Gaylord gave the members a VERY NICE discount, and gave it to us the whole time we were there!! Believe me, I wouldn't have been able to stay here without the discount. I read most of... More

Beautiful location on the river, close enough to DC to take advantage of the sights, but far enough to feel like you are at a resort. Rooms are clean, friendly staff and the grounds are well cared for. Restaurants and shops are a short walk.
