I stayed here with my fiance & my parents on June 14th while we were in National Harbor for the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival. This is a very unique hotel & we all loved every bit of our stay. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly staff & were pleasantly surprised when we were able to check-in even though we were a couple hours early from check-in time. The room layout is not only different from most hotels but was fun to explore. The room was clean & inviting. An added bonus was having control of a digital thermostat in the room, especially since it was quite hot that weekend. I have to admit one of the features I enjoyed most about the hotel was the soap & shampoo/conditioner dispensers located right in the shower...the products smelled wonderful as well! This was so much better than trying to squeeze every last drop of shampoo out of those dinky bottles all the other hotels have! I do have to agree with some other reviewers that the bed was quite stiff. That's probably the only complaint other than a 1:00am fire alarm but that was at no fault of the hotel as some idiot on one of the upper floors was smoking a cigarette in their room in a non-smoking hotel. The location of the hotel is also great if you're looking to venture around the National Harbor area. Overall, we had a great stay at this unique hotel & I would definitely recommend it!
