I just returned from a three day stay at this hotel. Overall, the design of the hotel is very nice if you like a modern, european, boutique style aesthetic. The hotel is in the heart of National Harbor, a 5 min walk from everything including the Gaylord Convention Centre. Staff: The staff is extremely nice and try to be helpful... More

The only thing I was not impressed with was the lobby, there was no sign letting you know that you need to take either the stairs or the elevator to the registration desk located on the second floor. The hotel was amazing, clean rooms, huge beds, extremely modern. Impressive shower and bathroom. Great view... They were very welcoming, no dinning... More

Trying to locate this hotel, I passed It a few times before I realized AC Hotel took over the "ALoft" hotel. I have stayed at "ALoft" when they first popped up in the MD and Philly area and even at this location...National Harbor. I found "ALoft" to be a poorly run, cheap motel that I vowed NEVER to stay in... More

This past weekend was my wife's birthday and I wanted to do a little "staycation" and not get caught up in too much traffic. So I wanted to go back to the hotel that we stayed on the night of our wedding, the Aloft Hotel in National Harbor. To my surprise, the hotel was purchase by Marriott, and the new... More

This new arrival by the Marriott chain into the National Harbor area is a good solid deal. It is a bit different from our expectations and is far more European than most hotels in our area. That is not a bad thing, only setting expectations. Very minimalistic rooms with amazingly little storage and very strange closet configuration. Still, it was... More

Pros: The hotel is wedged in the heart of the harbour. My room was located across from main entrance to activities. I loved the view. The fitness room is very nice. Modern machines and nice weights. The employees were very friendly and accommodating. The mattress was very comfortable. Cons: only hotel parking is valet and that is$35 a day. Only... More

The hotel is ideally located right in the center of the National Harbor complex, right on Waterfront Drive. The National Harbor complex has lots of restaurants, bars and tourist type shopping. The AC is a boutique hotel, smaller property and smaller rooms. Our room had no closet and only two small drawers. The size of the room is fine for... More

Not clean - the bathroom shower actually appeared to be old, like it had sat in a storeroom or on the back of a truck for too long. The bathroom floor had not, not, NOT been properly (if at all) cleaned by housekeeping. In the hallway, housekeeping left their supplies directly in the middle, causing you to have to squeeze...

I am a platinum Marriott member and have never been so disappointed with a hotel stay. First off the address listed was not found by the GPS and calls to the hotel to get the address went unanswered over and over. Saying the hotel is in Washington DC is false. It is in Maryland and a bear to find even... More

The hotel is nice and the staff was professional. Nothing really stood out as outstanding...To get to the front desk of the hotel, you have to walk into the main lobby and go upstairs. In my party, I had someone who was handicapped and the elevator was down most of the weekend. It was a bit of an inconvenience to... More
