My husband and I, as well as our 12 year old son stayed here for 5 nights in January 2013. We chose the Gaylord because our older son was at the same hotel for a convention of high school students and we wanted to be close to him. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. This hotel is HUGE, which is a benefit when you have close to 2,000 high school students also staying there! We scarcely noticed them. The overall decor is impressive and elegant. Again, this is a LARGE facility with a great deal of walking involved. The hotel restaurants are fine- nothing special but certainly above average. We did enjoy the substantial breakfast buffet every morning. In order to take public transportation into Washington D.C. we had to take a cab ($20 each way) to the station in Alexandria. The hotel shuttle was $20 per person so the cab was a better deal. My only complaint is that a hotel of this size could have offered a more reasonable shuttle service for it's guests. All in all a good experience.
