Stayed for two weeks of training by a government agency. The place is huge! How huge? I read somewhere there are 917 guest rooms and 250 meeting rooms. Expect to be disoriented from time to time, however staff always willing to help guests. I've come up with a good analogy comparing the facilities to a cruise ship regarding the buffet... More

Dear Ethanaton. Your comments are interesting, and we will share them with the executive team. The National is NOT a hotel; therefore, you won’t find a pool or fancy restaurants. As a conference and training facility, most planners choose the National because the sleeping rooms are small and encourage attendees to be with their colleagues in the common areas. Our... More

Dear Funtimes. Thank you for taking time to post your personal comments. Our food program often gets high reviews and comments. We have an extensive “buy local” program and all meals are cooked fresh daily or by order. We often feed 1,000 people in one sitting.

This 1974 concrete Brutalist complex was designed for Xerox and converted for public use. There are many different sizes of meeting and training spaces. Since the place is a bit underutilized there's a ghost town feeling to the atria. There are pleasant outdoor spaces, some with bar service. The robust construction means the training rooms are pretty quiet. Very good... More

Thank you, Lietuva, for your comments. We are a BIG facility, and we do have a lot of space, so maybe that’s way you didn’t seem to see anyone. Our food program is one of our newest changes to the property and we’re getting great feedback. Thank you for your comments and we’re delighted you enjoyed your stay with us.... More

First of all, you feel like you're in a secret hidden compound in some beautiful scenery. At first it's confusing to get around, but soon you learn to actually read and follow the signs! The staff is wonderful and the food is great!!!

Hi, the conference facility is well maintained, service is exceptional and food service, meals, snacks, coffee, etc is run by a true chef who makes a point of greeting the guests.

This facility is absolutely disgusting. The health department should be sent out for random checks of the food facilities if they aren't already. The place smells - shower curtains are torn, mold in many areas - the worst of course being the showers. It needs to be shut down and gutted. Absolutely a disaster.

Attending a conference here. This place looks like a prison so I thought it would be terrible. The rooms are not highly decorated, so don't expect a lot there.
