"Stay at the Marriott across the street!"
My company booked us at this hotel because we were attending a convention here. Driving up to the hotel in the Supershuttle I was very impressed, it was enormous and beautiful! I checked in and the front desk told me to "go over there" to get my elevator to my room on the 2nd floor, and pointed in the direction behind me. I asked the clerk if they could get me some glue to fix the wheel on my suitcase that the airline broke. The girl called the maintenance dept and they told her they didn't have any glue!!! They then said if I wanted to wait they would look for some. She asked me if I wanted to wait at the desk while maintenance searched for glue. I had been up since 3 am, and the thought of waiting at the front desk while they searched was not very appealing. I told them not to bother I would go down the street to CVS to buy some. Then I went to go find the elevator. I went "over there" as directed and did not see any elevators, I turned and walked over to the Concierge desk and asked where the elevators were, they pointed and told me "over there." I went "over there" again and still did not see anything and then walked over to the bell hop desk. I asked him where the elevator was and he got out from behind his desk walked into the lobby and pointed down a hallway and told me they were at the end of the hallway overlooking the Atrium. So I made my way down to the elevator with my broken suitcase, finally found the elevator and got to my room which had a funky, beefy odor. The furniture was nice, room was a good size, had a lovely view of all the cars and shuttles arriving up to the hotel and people unloading. Besides the odor, there was no mini frig in the room and the coffee maker condiment box had enough cream and sugar for one cup of coffee and 3 black cups of coffee. Totally not generous at all. I went down to the convention floor and met up with my roommate who had arrived earlier and was already setting up our booth. She asked me what I though of the view from our room. I told her it's great if you like parking lots. She told me that when she checked in they asked her if she wanted a room with a view or a room near the convention hall. She requested the room with a view! I suppose it could have been worse, our coworkers had a room on the 15th floor with a view of a roof. Other fun times at this hotel include the 30 minute long line up at the coffee shop to get a Starbucks in the morning, the closed Italian restaurant which caused a two hour wait time for dinner at their other restaurant, yet somehow manages to bill my roommates credit card for a dinner to our room that she never ordered. One of the other reviewers said the convention food was good, we clearly didn't get the same meal plan for our show. There were nasty, dry sandwiches for $12, chips, pale fruit cups, and lettuce in a bowl for $10. Disgusting. The hallway where our room was located constantly looked like it was a drop off for housekeeping carts, there were always garbage bags of dirty towels sitting next to the doors of the rooms. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Marriott across the street if you need to be at this place for a convention. It is totally not worth the money to stay here. This hotel is all Fluff. When it comes down to the details which really make your stay memorable, The Gaylord falls flat on its face. My first night there after getting our booth set up for the show I went to the front desk to complain to the manager about my experience, but the check in line was out the door. I didn't want to bother them at that moment and never had a chance to go back and address my complaints in person.
Hotel was huge and beautiful! Unfortunately the weather was horrible while in town but there was plenty of restaurants and shopping at the hotel. Staff was extremely kind and friendly. My 2 issues where lack of staffing for the coffee and concessions. 3 conventions and it took 45 min to get a coffee and by 830am they were out of fresh muffins and pastries and would not make more. And issue number 2 was lack of staffing in the bar and lounges in the evening. I would love to return to this location for business or pleasure, I just hope they have enough staff next time.
"A notch better than my visit in 2015"
The size of the conference has grown from 1700 to 2500+, The execution of events was mostly well cone. Some serious A/V problems (which were done in-house. Lunches and breakfast were adequate. Evening events went well. I look at the hotel from an attendee, speaker, and organizer. Still room for improvement.
"Sea Air Space convention"
World class facilities, luxurious, conveniently located near D.C. plenty of dining options both onsite, and in adjacent neighborhood. Cadillac Ranch would be a good stop on a weekend night. During the Christmas holidays, the hotel is beautifully adorned, and hosts "Christmas on the Potomac".
"Huge but Efficient"
Gaylord hotels are, by nature, enormous. The Gaylord National is no exception. It's a city in itself. That said, the rooms are spacious and clean. The amenities are upscale. The conference food and beverage are high quality. Most importantly, the staff is friendly and knowledgable. Not sure I'd recommend for a family vacation. For meetings; they do not disappoint.
