My wife and I and our fifteen year old grandson recently stayed here at National Harbor. The hotel staff was pleasant and I probably would return but please know that despite the great location, the units are smaller than the typical Residence Inn and we found a few things lacking that we are used to at other Residence Inn properties. The kitchen did not come equipped with liquid detergent which made it impossible to wash any kitchen items unless you used the dishwasher. We had to call down for the bedding materials for the pullout which wasn't very comfortable at all to sleep on. As a platinum member we thought we might receive an upgrade to a one bedroom unit but the upgrade was to a unit with a view of the river. Many Marriott hotel types are now choosing to upgrade to what they consider a better view and not to a larger room type. Stinginess about upgrades eventually will turn off loyal Marriott clients.
