"Another great time at Gaylord"
We visit National Harbor frequently because we live close. I have also stayed at the Gaylord multiple times before for fun, cheer comps and this time a special birthday treat! This hotel has an unbeatable ambiance, great customer service, comfortable beds and the best steak house around. The atrium is absolutely beautiful, and you cannot beat the views of VA, DC, Potomac River, Woodrow Wilson Bridge, etc. The view especially from the high floors is amazing. The only thing I was upset about is the coffee shop in the hotel was closed for renovation so it was hard to get a great cup of coffee. However, there is a good coffee place a few streets over. In response to other peoples negative comments don't always believe what you read! There is a strong police presence by the National Harbor security, as well as the Prince Georges County Police Department and their presence is everywhere. There is a lot of traffic in the hotel because people want to see the atrium, go to the popular restaurants and get the Gaylord experience. As for the resorts fee, yes they charge one, however, it is no more expensive then a lot of upscale hotels. It is all one fee for the wifi and other things as opposed to being charged for every little thing. Most hotels charge between 10-20 dollars just for wifi. The resort fee is $18.00 bucks. The taxes are what adds to the rate as it does in all hotels at destination places.
"Not at all recommended for Family"
We stayed in this hotel this month for a night when we stayed in Washington, the experience was really bad. Not at all what we expected. No security in the hotel, anyone can come and go anytime as this resort have a night lounge, people were busling in and out till late night. I woke up in the middle of the night as someone was fighting in the lobby post getting too much drunk. It might be good for young couples who are looking for a night of fun however not at all recommended for families.
"Overpriced, not user-friendly"
I've been here twice, and my experience was the same both times. The facilities are beautiful but overpriced. The hotel is very large, and it can be hard to find your way around. It might be a challenge for people with mobility issues. The amount of nickel and diming is irritating. The hotel charges a "resort fee" that supposedly covers wifi, use of the pool, two bottles of water per day, and possibly a newspaper. It's not like this hotel is located in the Caribbean; it's in Oxon Hill, MD and despite its name, it's really not a "resort." Parking costs $24 per night; even more for the valet. The service is acceptable, but for what they charge, it should really be close to perfect. There are several other hotels in the area and next time I will give one of them a try. Gaylord charges like a first-rate resort, but it doesn't deliver.
This hotel is located in National Harbor, MD. It is a short drive over the Potomac River to Alexandria, Mt. Vernon and Washington D.C. The hotel is expansive with an amazing waterfront view, gardens and fountains inside and out. Hickory Steakhouse is a swanky restaurant for fine dining with a comfortable lounge to enjoy artisan cocktails. The location of hotel is great. You can easily walk out of the lobby and go straight to the pier, ferris wheel, enjoy a variety of restaurants and shops. This area is modern and is only about 10 years old.
