Beat the snow down from PA on our way to the National Harbor. I want to commend Nelson with whom I spoke the night before the storm and on the morning of our departure. Excellent directions to the place. We reserved the 2-bedroom Presidential suite on the top floor: enjoyed the beautiful view. The suite contained a king sized bed in the master bedroom, flat screen TV, enough closet and drawer space, huge walk-in shower, private toilet area and sink, along with plenty of towels and all the SPA products. The 2nd bedroom contained two double beds, its own bathroom o/s the room. In the living room were a sofa, loveseat, wing chair, flat screen TV, DVD player, radio/CD player. Spacious kitchen with all utensils for cooking and eating, beautiful granite countertops as well. We were in the indoor pool and hot tub each day of our stay and enjoyed it tremendously. Unfortunately, it was bitter cold so we did not venture far away from the property for meals: ate dinner at McCormick & Schmick, the Pier House and had a late lunch at Potbelly's. On Monday night, DC Trails motorcoach picked us up for the Washington Evening Lights Tour where we had ample time to see the Christmas Tree, the Christmas Trees of the 50 States, Santa's Workshop, and the Nativity Scene. Next we went to the Washington Monument, WWII monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean Memorial, Vietnam Vets Memorial, and finally to Iwo Jimo. At each location we were given plenty of time to view the Memorials and take pictures. Again, due to the bitter cold, we did not stay too long at any place.
I would recommend this resort to couples and to families because of the beauty of the location, the friendliness of the staff and the great number of activities available. We are planning to go in the late Spring when things warm up a bit.
