"Great Business Location"
I stayed here for business within the hotel so was very pleased with the location, though it's outside DC proper somewhat. The room was very comfortable and clean. There were plenty of places to eat right out the front door and plenty of shopping and nightlife as well. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful throughout my stay. I was there for six nights and enjoyed the balcony and rest and relaxation after long days on my feet in the convention area.
"Average - but above average prices"
This is my second stay at Gaylord National Harbor, and it continues to underwhelm. While the facility itself is nice, service overall is lacking. There was a candy wrapper left on a hallway table (elevator lobby) for 1.5 days, the only thing on the table other than the phone. Food quality was average, with above average cost (even for this area). It would have been nice when the bed was made, if someone adjusted the mattress pad vs. leaving it bunched, requiring me to adjust it before I was able to sleep. And my pet peeve - why are room clocks 5-10 min fast or slow' They need to be correct.
"Good for business travellers - good services and amenities"
Stayed here for a week or so on business. The room was clean, well appointed reasonably comfortable. I used room service a few times and found them responsive and helpful. You do feel a little bit lonely - the hotel is huge. I used the gym and found it, again, well appointed and clean. It's a place for functions and conferences so be prepared for a bit of foot traffic in the mornings. The restaurants and bars provide a very good spread of options. Local restaurants and stores are also very convenient and good. Parking was no hassle. I'd recommend to business travellers.
"Not a bad choice in National Harbor"
Was here for a convention over several days. A few on site restaurants and MANY off site choices walking distance to the hotel. There is on site parking, but bring your sneakers it is a long walk from parking to the hotel front desk or restaurants. Due to its size it may be confusing to find your room, just look at the map (provided by front desk). The H shape is easy to understand after one day. It is a Gaylord, so food and drink on site are a little pricey - or it may be because they are now managed by Marriott corp.
"Huge Disney like hotel with all the amenities"
The Gaylord is a massive hotel with a central atrium that contains shops and restaurants. Music plays at various times and there are fountains amongst the shops, and altogether it reminds me of Disney. I was here for a business conference so didn't eat at the hotel restaurants, but can vouch for several good restaurants in the area. The area surrounding the hotel appears to have been built to support the travel industry solely, and is quite touristy. Cabs are plentiful take you to DC or other parts of Maryland. The hallways are like a maze, but the rooms are nicely appointed with all the amenities. The Internet is absolutely horrible, even if you upgrade to the premium service.
