"Very good for a conference hotel"
I had the chance to go there twice in a month for conferences. Both times were similar: room was clean, wifi was good, bed was comfortable. I didn't use much of their services, but the cleaning personel was very friendly and helpful. On the food side, the sports bar was ok, not great. Service is slow and getting our check took forever. Also, the coffee shop closed way too early. All in all, I would still recommend this place, especially for a conference.
While Mom attended a convention here, we got our 3yr old twin grandkids to amuse for the days. One day we walked them through the Gaylord's atrium, a magnificent space. The kids were fascinated by the water features, especially the water ballet at the fountain/waterfall. The water show is programmed to do differing effects and comes one about every twenty minutes or so. Our grandson was particularly attracted to these shows. On the way to the pools there is a video game parlor which always enthralls the kids. They spend time watching the video screens and hearing the sounds of racing etc. The kids also liked the elevators and the escalators, the latter needing our attention since this was a new experience for them. We worked our way down to the river and completed the circuit by walking the path to the harborfront area. With a stroller it is not easy to get to the river without encountering some stairs. But these can be minimized if you go to the pool level and down from there.
"Great amenities and 1st class Conceirge"
The trip really can be summed up by saying the concierge made the trip for me. You need anything, they can take care of it. The food was good. Service was top notch from check in to check out. Loved it that I was there during the snow storm. The place was beautiful.
"Great Conference Hotel"
I stayed one night, June 23, 2015. Room was very nice with new furnishing. Bed was very, very comfortable and soft. Bathroom was spotlessly clean. Check-in was very easy and quick – even with all of the conference attendees in the lobby. The hotel is large and caters to business conferences so I’d not recommend for a family vacation.
"Not Marriott quality or service - don't stay here"
I am an Elite Reward member and upon checking in found that I had a room with a view - a brick wall and gravel outside my window. They changed my room. The lobby has no water or coffee. The towels in the room are threadbare. The soap is a small circular two inch piece of soap. When I went to eat at their casual dining in the atrium it was closed twice for private events - the alternative was the noisy sports bar. The sports bar service was terrible - waited and waited for food, and waited and waited for bill. Waiter never checked in during meal to see if I needed anything, and I needed more water with my meal. I wanted to make a tour reservation, but security who was standing by concierge desk told me to go to the front desk (as did the sign). The front desk person told me there were no other tour companies that came to the Gaylord excepts Chariots for Hire. She told me there was no public transportation into the National Mall and no shuttle to the mall. I walked to Chariots for Hire tour desk and found out they do have a paid shuttle which goes to the National Mall. But the wonderful helpful lady at the desk called the tour company that had the tour I wanted, arranged it, and they did pick up at the Gaylord. Then tonight I have listened to people making noise and slamming doors for 2 hours now. I called the number "consider it done" for service to ask for security to come upstairs, and after 19 minutes on hold someone picked up phone and hung it up without even a hello. Then I called the outside hotel number and was on continual hold. I called the bellboy and no one answered. I walked downstairs, and the lady at the front desk said it is not their job to answer the phone, that it is a call center. She would send security up. Did I mention cold conference rooms and no wifi in the conference rooms' Smoking out in front of the hotel in the driveway where you enter the hotel' Do not stay here. It is not worth the money. This is not Marriott quality.
