“Comfortable resort with a short commute to D.C.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We found this resort for our recent visit to D.C. We stayed for a week. Since we didn't have a car, we took the Metro from the airport to get to King St-Old Town Metro Station. From the station, we took the free National Harbor shuttle to resort by showing the driver our hotel reservation. The ride was about 15-20 mins. Our room was a 1 bedroom with a bathtub, a separate shower and a full kitchen. It was spacious and the decor was modern contemporary. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. The staff on the second floor helped us to book the boat tour to Mount Vernon and night bus tour for D.C. monuments. We didn't have time to use the amenities, but the resort has an exercise room, pool and game room. Plenty of activities for adults and kids. There is a CVS right next door to the resort and so it is very convenient to pick up convenient items. For those traveling by Metro using a Smart Card, you can reload your card here. There is another small grocery store a short walk away. From the resort, it is walking distance to the National Harbor waterfront where you can find restaurants, yogurt/ice cream stores and boutique shops. In the near future, MGM Grand will be opening a casino resort within a few miles from this resort. We also found great restaurants in Old Town Alexandria. We enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it to our friends and family.

Room with a view, friendly staff, great pool, so much to see, time to lounge at the pool and what a great pool it is. Shower in the bathroom was right up there with a spa's resort. There wasn't anything lacking in the room.

It was a girlfriends weekend and nothing but good times and plenty of space available to hang out and have a nice time. If we needed more pillows we got more pillows, robes you name it.

Thank you!

A 3 year old in a very good area. Close to the harbor about 3 blocks downhill. There is a CVS right next door so you can purchase supplies as needed. There are NO stores or food to purchase in this hotel, so CVS is the only place.
The staff are all very cordial and helpful. Rooms are nicely furnished and we asked for one with a balcony. There was construction across the street, but it didn't affect us as we left each morning by 8:00 AM. It's nice to come back and sit on the balcony and watch the world go by after a long day of sightseeing.

A lot of good eating places right on the road and several excellent ones in the Gaylord Hotel, really lovely hotel, and one in the Westin(I don't recommend that one, girl didn't know what a vodka gimlet was and couldn't make one).

Hotel was quiet during the week, but the weekends were a little noisy. but still a good place to stay. We opted out of the timeshare talks, we were there to see Washington D.C. (only 20 minutes by taxi) not be bothered with talks.

Room Tip: Room 421 has a balcony. owever the turntable on the microwave is broken and the refrig. makes lots o...

This was actually my third stay. Nice resort, great amenities and location. If you want something relaxing and still have activities for the kids, this is one to look into.

Always have a great time. Oh yeah the parking is $13.00 per day and ask for one of the rooms from the ninth floor on up. Get the view of the river and outdoor pool deck.

Again, with the timeshare - just say no. $100.00 gift card (oh yeah I take it).

Room Tip: Higher floors facing the river and the pool deck (I think they are the odd numbers). Make sure you...

We stayed in National Harbor from September 15-19 in a 2-bedroom unit. Check-in was smooth but I was glad I was aware of the $13 for parking from reading other reviews. The unit was very clean and comfortable although the living room was a bit small. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our small balcony even though it was over a construction site which my husband found fascinating. Our only regret is that we didn't take a picture each day to monitor the progress. Noise from the site was minimal from the ninth floor.

For two days, we used Parking Panda to reserve a $16 per day parking spot at D Street and 9th in Washington. It was a few blocks from the Smithsonian. We didn't didn't want to use the National Harbor shuttle after reading other reviews. We think it was a faster alternative that wasn't much more expensive.

It was very nice to have free internet however reception was inconsistent and sometimes non-existent on our floor.

We did agree to an owner's update but did not think staff members were overly pushy.

We arrived late in the day after a long day of travel. The room looked fine except for a very dirty carpet. The room was warm, but that was to be expected; Washington was having a heat wave. But in the middle of the night, we couldn't sleep because the AC was not functioning and maintenance had left. The next day, after working but failing to fix the problem, we were moved to a second room. It was smaller, but seemingly cooler. But the AC quit on us again. Maintenance fixed it, but again it stopped working at 3 am. In the morning we thought a bath might be nice after a second night of no sleep because of the heat. But the tub was broken-couldn't close the drain. And the dishwasher was broken, we discovered.
Clearly, Wyndham need to put some effort into maintenance.
A positive item: the staff were wonderful. It is a management problem of priorities.

This was a great hotel for our needs. It was only myself and my husband and we had a wonderful time. Depending on traffic, we were about 30 minutes from the capitol and other area monuments. We were only 10 minutes from Arlington, VA. We were even able to take a day trip (2hrs each way) to Monticello.

The hotel was very nice. The furnishings were great. We had a 1 bedroom condo with a balcony. On one side we had a water view and on the other we had a construction view (children's museum is expanding). There are a lot of boutique stores and restaurants in the area. All within walking distance.

I do not recommend the boutique grocery store in the area. The only thing they carry a selection of is alcohol. You'll have better luck at the CVS. If you are military and can get on post, I recommend the Andrews AFB commissary.

We had three issues while we stayed at this hotel. First, we didn't have any wash clothes. Because we checked in @ 2:30am, this was not noticed until we got up the next morning. However, once the front desk knew about it, we promptly had washcloths. Second, our A/C did not work properly. But because we were not in our condo very much it took a few days for us to realize this. Again, as soon as it was brought to the attention of the front desk, it was taken care of. Finally, we had an issue with the parking deck. We aren't really sure what happened, but we never could get the gate to work properly. But when we pushed the help button, someone was always right there to help and opened the gate for us.

At some resorts the Member Services staff is very pushy and demanding. This Member Services staff is not that way. We had a Do Not Disturb card out the first morning because we had gotten in so late. The Member Service staff simply put a note under our door. I believe they also left messages (the light was blinking); but, we never checked our messages and they left us alone.
