I made a reservation for my 20 year old son and his girlfriend at this hotel. I never thought about asking about age restriction. I called I confirmed that they would be there late after a day of touring DC. They get to the hotel and my son that lives 4 hrs away tells me that this hotel will NOT let them check in and cancelled their reservation. Mind you it's 10pm! They did not even offer an alternative hotel or any assistance! Instead they told them that in order to stay at most hotels you need to be 21 years old! They didn't care if these kids had a place to stay but they knew that because they were 6 months from turning 21 they were not staying there! It's crazy how my son can fight for our country but can not check into a hotel.
"Exciting Overnight Retreat"
A few girlfriends and I recently planned an overnight trip to the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, MD. As a little Mother's Day gift to ourselves, we each booked 2 treatments at the outstanding Relache Spa and dined at the posh Bond 45 for dinner. The Relache Spa was quiet and relaxing as we enjoyed the views of the tranquil Potomac River while sipping cups of hot tea and rejuvenating flavored water. With their giant, soft robes, candle lit hallways and personal concierge service, it's no wonder the spas name means "a period of rest & relaxation." Throughout the day we enjoyed the spa's steam room, sauna and spa tub as you have access to all of the spa's amenities when you book a treatment. After our spa treatments we then retreated back to our Atrium View Room where we enjoyed the sights and sounds of the hotel's happenings. We witnessed a quinceanero with all of the young people looking beautiful in their dresses and tuxedos. We also witnessed a proposal in the Atrium's gazebo. The dancing fountains and well kept indoor gardens made this hotel feel more like a resort and less like a convention center. The hotel is within perfect walking distance to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. You can definitely park your car at the hotel and travel around by foot. One thing to note is that the hotel's coffee shop had a crazy, long line in the morning. There is a Starbuck's within about an 8 minute walking distance from the hotel that had only a short line. A much better option to the 25 minute line at the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming into the Washington DC area. Not only were the hotel and spa inviting, but the town and shops were sights to see all in their own. Whether you're escaping the hustle & bustle with your significant other, taking a much needed girls only trip or wanting to share time with the kids in a local resort area, the Gaylord Hotel and National Harbor are definitely sights to see!!
"Good convention place but average otherwise "
This place is huge. Be prepared to walk a lot. The rooms are very nice but too expensive. The food was ok but again kind of pricey. Very pretty grounds. Close to water taxi. Close to a nice area of restaurants and shops. So much glass it was not cool enough many times.
"Our 2nd Visit Since First Opened Years Ago"
Very nice hotel. Clean. Nice scenery inside with live plants and water. Little stores to shop from. Located in walking distance to other shops. Super pricey to stay. Parking no longer free. Shuttles are not free. My husband attended the AICPA conference while my daughters and I took advantage of what National Harbor has to offer and paid $20 per person for one day round trip shuttle omni bus to DC from the hotel. Disappointed that they downgraded the water fountain show. It's not merely the spectacle it used to be and that they make it out to be. They also did away with the grande piano within a shallow pool (which was for ambiance only) Overall, we slept well. The beds were comfortable and our room was on the 8th floor and the farthest from the main elevator. Though we sure got our exercise, it was quiet. We enjoyed the indoor pool and I briefly basted in the hot tub at times. Though the hot tub was maybe 5 degrees hotter than it could have been. Soothes the muscles, but they say you shouldn't be in it for more than 15 minutes. In this case, maybe even less than that. If you have the extra $, it's worth the stay. -There is also a nice exercise equipment room and small arcade area down the hall. Just make sure you have a check out receipt. They claimed we stayed 5 nights instead of the actual 3. We are fighting the charge with the credit card company.
I was here for a conference and was pleasantly surprised. I have been to two other Gaylord Resorts and like this one best. The views are fabulous, and the area has lots to do. Decor is nice and classy.
