of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Well staffed and knowledgeable front desk. Valet and staff made it so nice. We never carried a baggage or dealt with a luggage cart. Our things were brought up in a timely manner. Rooms were very clean, beds and comforters were comfy. The bathroom was spotless! Like the floors and tub were brand new. 2 sinks in the area separate from the toilet and shower. The convention was handled very nicely from what I could tell. Coolers of water outside the prayer rooms ( meeting rooms ) was appreciated. The hotel in it's self is amazing! Not as big as the one in Nashville but still it has plenty of restaurants and some shops. Going outside near the water was beautiful. The well maintained grounds and thick lush grass in the springtime was a nice surprise. The fountain light show at 8pm was a wonderful x-tra bonus. Loved by kids and adults. Tanger shops were close by and within walking distance. MANY, MANY types of restaurants to choose from. Don't forget there is a ferris wheel and carousel down at the boardwalk at the marina. Valet parking is $35 a night just so you are aware. But, I think it's worth the x-tra cost of the regular parking fee. Great place to be. Enjoy.
"The Atrium View Is Spectacular!"
If you have reason to travel to the area near the nation's Capitol, you would have a close-hand option outside of D.C. if you choose the Gaylord. I was there for a recent business trip and it was amazing. The rooms are lovely and comfortable; there are restaurants & coffee shops all within the hotel itself so one doesn't have to go outside if the weather is bad (I was there at the time of the Superbowl so that was appreciated!) Situated right on the Potomac, the view from the multiple-storey atrium has to be seen to be believed. And there are excellent restaurants within a short walk of the front door. We got over to Capitol Hill and all of the sights of D.C. with ease. This is a great place and I am hoping our national conference will be here again so I have a reason to return!
"One of the best convention centers I have ever visited."
Iv been to the National Harbor more times than I can count, and have been in the lobby of the Gaylord before, but this was the first time that I used their convention facilitates. I was very impressed with the amount of space they have, the number of meeting rooms, and how clean everything was. The bathrooms were always clean and fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, and soap. I have been to convention centers in Anaheim, Nashville, and New Orleans. These were the best facilities of the ones I have been to.
"Conference and hotel stay"
I was recently a guest at this convention center and hotel. My wife and I spent three nights at this hotel, and were quite pleased overall. The staff was superb, and the accommodations were on point. Valet parking was on the expensive side, at $35,00 dollars a day, but it was certainly convenient when we were checking in and out with our bags Bell hops were also pleasant, and accommodating. Check in was quick and easy, with very friendly desk staff. Rooms were large, clean and had quite comfortable beds. Bathrooms, large with a double vanity, and good lighting. maids were also friendly, and happy to assist with additional towel requests. The hotel is large, and very clean with ample staff ensuring that the resort is kept to the highest standards. Conference rooms were also large, and comfortable, having spent two full days in a conference, they were well spread out, with good seating arrangements. The view from my room was also very nice, as we faced the harbor, and Ferris wheel. At night, it was beautiful with all the lights emanating out over the water. I really was quite impressed overall with my overall stay at this hotel and conference center. The staff and management are to be commended for a job well done!
"Nice but not spectacular "
This is a big conference center hotel. The service is great; the check-in was easy and friendly. The room was clean and conveniently set up. Nice bath and shower area. Bed was very comfortable. From a value perspective, it's overpriced. Other reviews discuss the beautiful atrium and food offerings. The national harbor area is newer with several restaurants and shops. There is very little public transportation so if you are doing sightseeing, it will cost a lot to get to places and then back to the hotel. Thus, this is more of a destination than a place for a family or group of friends to use as a launchpad to see other places. There is a CVS close by to pick up snacks and such.
