“Great facility!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

It was a great place for large conference group! Spacious and an excellent location plenty of shops an restaurants within walking distance! Rooms were nice and very clean. There are several restaurants in the hotel itself as well as some shopping and a spa. The pool was big and outdoor. Nice places to sit and just be outside on the Patomac.

Stayed here while attending a conference and overall, my stay was nice. I was upgraded to a room that that had a balcony overlooking the large atrium and that was nice. My room was nice but not incredible. I don't like that the elevators seem to be spread throughout the hotel and so it does take a walk to find the nearest elevator. The good thing about the hotel is that it's in a beautiful location within walking distance of a lot of fun restaurants and shops.

I stayed at this hotel while attending a conference here for 4 nights. Was happy to get a 'conference rate' of $275: when I checked in however, I was shocked to find out what an average room it turned out to be, with no view of the harbor whatsoever. For the price that I paid, I could have gotten a better deal nearby. The rooms were clean with basic amenities. All the restaurants in the hotel were pricey of course! service was ok.

I came for a conference and was surprised at the number of new buildings planned. Yes to MGM casino being built next door. Across the street is the Marriot Residence. Gaylord is a Marriot Hotel, and a grand one at them. Atrium setting is astounding. Eating areas inside abound and outside area, shopping and leisure eating establishments. Staff are very accommodating, friendly.

About 35$ from DCA and the same for cab to DC. Tours galore from the hotel. Belvedere lounge overlooks huge atrium area.

Internet included in special fee with other amenities. Internet in hotel is weak however. Bottled water included. Room is very comfortable. Bed, sheets very nice.

The Harbor area is nice but not downtown DC which would mean even more expensive .... I'd return again if there was a conference here.

I stayed at the Gaylord while attending a weekend conference. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. My stay was wonderful! The food was excellent (but a little pricey, so be prepared). The location of the hotel is perfect- right near the harbor where there are other restaurants and shops. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, and my room was spotless and very comfortable.

This place is huge, but it's a convention center, so that's to be expected. The atrium and conference areas are awesome! The Potomac is just outside the door, and the general area is great.

Rooms: The rooms were fine. The beds were adequate: one of them creaked pretty much and both had a wooden frame around the bottom - perfect for banging your leg in the dark (why have these at all?) The Internet (*see below) worked fine. Overall, a pretty average room in a fancy hotel.

Check-in took forever: I was 4th in line and it just crawled. Check-out: I was 3rd in line and it took about 20 minutes. No idea why!

Parking: very expensive, self or valet. There are other options nearby. No delf-use luggage carts (again, to be expected at a resort).

* pricey: Your rate doesn't include the "resort fee" or parking. For us, that added about $40-$60/day for both. The resort fee includes Internet and... was it just Internet? Internet and the privilege of being there?

We asked about a room upgrade and it was "$250 per night additional" Additional?!? It was an easy 'no'. I saw an earlier review talking about wildly different rates, and it makes sense. I suspect that's true.

We didn't eat in the hotel - everything seemed pretty pricey. There are plenty of places to eat in the complex around the resort.

One disadvantage is that the area is nowhere near the Metro in D.C. You can take a free shuttle (note - the Gaylord isn't in with the 'free shuttle' but the other hotels are. Just step on the shuttle and show your room key - it works). Take the shuttle to King St. Metro. The water taxi works also, or a cab, but not as convenient to get all around D.C.

Note - we also stayed across the street at the Residence Inn (I reviewed that as well) and they have some issues. So, would I stay here again? I'd certainly look at the other hotels at the Harbor first, but I would consider staying here.

Stayed at the Gaylord for a conference and was very happy with all aspects of this hotel: location, session rooms, convenience, quiet in the evening, cleanliness. I did not eat in the restaurants but the hotel provided breakfast and lunch (snacks too) for the conference and it was all very good. The setting, across the Potomac from DC, is quite lovely. The front desk is very accommodating. Overall, a wonderful experience. I may need to try some of the other Gaylord's...
