The Gaylord at National Harbor is showing its age. Sad to see refurbishments and general upkeep are not keeping up. Also sad the sports bar and restaurant is boarded up. It was such a nice venue in a great location too.

Terrible customer service and zero empathy.... unbelievable. We have stayed here 5-6 times and they could care less. Scheduled for 2-night stay Thursday/Friday, however my wife and son fell ill the day before. We had a covid test done on the morning we were to leave to be sure and protect all parties. It came back positive so we contacted resort and booking party to inform them of the situation...Expedia understood and cancelled the reservation after informing and communicating with Gaylord and assured me we were fine. I wake up this morning and Gaylord pulled $400 from my account as a penalty/fee for cancelling!!!!??? I called the hotel and spoke with a supervisor in operations who quite rudely told me the hotel made a decision and was not going to excuse or refund the fees...even in light of circumstances with CoVid and Delta variant. Unbelievable as I know their bookings are way down but to need money this bad and treat people this way while they are sick is inexcusable. Needless to say we will not be going back here again and we. no longer recommend as their true colors came out

It was my first time at this hotel for the conference. Building and grounds are impressive and clean. Rooms are well appointed and cleaning was done very well every day. But it is about all good I can say. At the check in I had to ask for an upgrade that no one offered to me. It was available and, as a Platinum member, I got it. But was a little surprised on why it was done this way that I should ask. Dispensers on the wall in the shower are probably better fit to the 2-3 stars hotel than here. But the biggest disappointment was food. No breakfast restaurant!? And no dinner restaurant for majority of the day. For breakfast the only option is to go to self serve Market Place where you can get some packaged meals of so so quality. The steak house is opened only three days a week. We went there once... The place looked good, but there were nothing special about the food except that it was greatly overpriced. 50 bucks for two tiny crab cakes appetizer just to give you an example...

I attended a conference this week at the Gaylord. Every single employee I interacted with was respectful, knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. The food was out of this world. The rooms were clean. I didn't hear anybody on my floor, or the floor above me. Everything was excellent. Highly recommended.

Let me start by saying in 2013 my husband and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Because of that stay my family and I went to the Gaylord National Resort on 7/4 to 7/6 after they supposedly had this multi million dollar renovation. I can tell you I'm not sure where the money went because it was not on updates to any part of the filthy hotel we saw. If this was the way the hotel was in 2013 we would have NEVER returned! The hallways were gross and had trash all over. The windows and glass surfaces look as if they have never been cleaned. The pool was so dirty we couldn't go swimming (ants and other bugs all around the pool). The first room our bed had hair and stains on the sheets, the shower wouldn't drain, the next room the bed had stains and out of all the employees that came to our rooms to fix issues none actually wore a mask appropriately. To top off our HORRIBLE experience they inappropriately charged my credit card $245.44 and didn't even show this charge on my bill print out upon check out. Come to find out it was a nightly room charge that shouldn't have been and after two months of calling Marriott customer service, my Marriott credit card, and the actual hotel no one seems to know how to refund a fraudulent charge. I spoke to a "manager" at the hotel Kandice Woodward who now doesn't return my calls or e-mails, and the last time I called the hotel the operator told me they wouldn't take my calls! DO NOT STAY AT THIS HORRIBLE HOTEL. Take your business else where.
