Not quite a Big Westin, this was a conference overflow hotel for an event at the G*yl*rd National Resort. It's a smaller hotel, so don't expect a grand entrance. Rooms were nicely appointed though, our 5th floor corner room, #547, gave a decent view of Waterfront Street and National Harbor, but it tended to be noisy on Saturday night. Wifi...

We stayed there to attend a concert at the MGM Grand, so my first note will be: DON'T DO THAT! The Westin is no where close to the MGM and trying to catch the shuttle was a huge pain and the taxi back cost $20! The room wasn't cleaned well (various trash on the floor), the telephones were gross with...

I just had a last minute stay at the Westin this week. I was driving down for a show at the MGM and had planned to drive back (5 hours) after because I was not paying the $300-400 a night for a hotel room just to lay down for a few hours before heading back. To my surprise, Priceline offered...

I think the Westin has the best harbor access and views of any hotel on the board walk. I especially loved the 621 view of the harbor, boat dock and Ferris wheel. The staff was consistent and service focused. And there are tons of great restaurants within walk. While some like the neighboring massive resort, I don't like large resorts...

I attended the funeral of a family member and stayed at the Westin International Harbour. I valet parked which cost $25. When i took a shower i found myself standing in a tub filled with water and when i looked around the area there was shaved hair covering the back wall of the shower. I contacted the front desk with...

We stayed during President's Day Weekend and had a good overall experience. The weather was unseasonably warm and the harbor was teeming with people as there was also a comic convention at the Gaylord. Check-in at the hotel was smooth and our room was clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. We did not have one of the rooms with a view...

This hotel is centrally located in the National Harbor overlooking the pier and Ferris Wheel. The staff is friendly and always willing to help and interact with guests. Restaurant and bar have a small selection but very good food and not to pricey. If bringing a car you can park across the street for $18 a day instead of valet....

National Harbor is a pleasant place, seems like a scenographic city. Everything is calm, well managed, clean. Westin is a very well located hotel, with a very friendly staff and good structure. Located by the Potomac, it is near all the attractions in the little city/county.

Look no further, this is the best place to stay in National Harbor. Best views of the Potomac and amazing service. The best part of this hotel is its staff. Bartenders are amazing.

I chose this hotel as I couldn't stomach spending $500 at the MGM. This is very close to the casino and in the middle of what I guess is the "strip" at the National Harbor. Several restaurants within close walking distance. Check-in was easy and they allowed us in a couple hours early. Parking is not available at the hotel....
