Gaylord National is not as big as Gaylord Nashville. The atrium is smaller and there are fewer shops and restaurants. I stayed three night for a conference and found the hotel to be modern and clean. This is a resort so expect a fee of $15 extra dollars. This hotel is not near to DC and the closest subway is about four miles. We took the taxi from Reagan National Airport and the fare was around $36 plus tip. There is also a shuttle that runs ever 20 minutes that costs $18/person. We ate at the National Pastime sports bar/restaurant...hamburger, fries and drink were around $20. The other food options include a buffet for around $20, the Old Hickory which is very pricey and a sandwich shop. There are many restaurants across the street. The restaurants are moderate to expensive. A McDonald's and Subway have just opened about three blocks away. There is also a CVS and a food market nearby. We ate twice at the Rosa Mexicano restaurant which had wonderful food and the best sangria that I have ever had. The Potbelly restaurant was great for lunch...good sandwiches and salads. We took the three hour Night Tour of DC offered by the hotel for $49 a person. The tour was great and our guide knowledgable and entertaining. There is a water taxi to Alexandria for about $16 round trip. It was good for a business trip but would not be economical for me to take my family.
