Expensive breakfast for the selections

I had the breakfast buffet for 2 of the 3 mornings I stayed at the hotel. For the price, there could have been more variety of items, although what they had was good.

I seldom leave a bad review, and I don't think I've ever written one from the table. I am staying at the hotel for a conference, came here for breakfast on the last day. The host walks you through the stations (continental, eggs & waffles, omelet bar) and then shows you the menu and asks you to pick one. I... More

WOW! Their breakfast buffet and Lunch buffet is excellent and offer a decent spread for a average sized check. The seating is great, the staff pays extra individual attention to each guest and the food is good. Never a complaint and we visit here at least once every year!

We had the breakfast buffet on a Sunday. We arrived around 11:00 and missed the Sunday brunch which we were very excited about. Prices are double on Sunday brunch. They have 3 pricing options, Continental $18, Omelet Station $18, or the Regular Buffet (which includes all 3 stations) $25. Kids were $9 no matter what they ate. I'm confused on... More

This is an average breakfast place that is extremely over priced. The service is great, nice atrium, you are getting sunlight (if not raining) without being exposed to bugs and extreme temperatures.

My son and I stopped in for a quick pizza and salad lunch. The food was so good, and the staff so kind, that we ate at Pienza for the following two days at breakfast. Pienza Marketplace serves amazing buffets with delicious food and attentive and friendly staff. My only complaint--Pienza Marketplace is not open for dinner. We would have... More

I was staying at the Gaylord for a conference, and needed breakfast early one morning and decided to check out the only breakfast buffet at the Gaylord. I opted for the cheapest breakfast buffet available- the continental breakfast at $16.95. This included some fruits, oatmeal, yogurt, granola, cereal, and a few pastries. These items are what most hotels serve for... More

How do you feed a lot of hungry convention attendees in a short space of time? Pienza tries to answer that question for delegates stranded at the Gaylord center at National Harbor. They run a lunch buffet, with two options: full range or "soup and salad" for people who want more than a sandwich but don't have the time for... More

Omelet bar very good value $20. Full breakfast for under $20. Not crowded if you arrive before 9 a.m. Patio type seating in the atrium of the Gaylord National Hotel. Overall decent food and service.

Pre made instant oatmeal. Stale pastry. Overpriced food you would get for free at any other hotel that offers free breakfast.
