"Great place to stay!"
Stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. Room was clean and comfortable. Lots of things to do and places to eat within walking distance. Indoor atrium was beautiful and a great place to sit and relax. Parking was a little expensive.
"Gaylord National Resort is the place to stay when visiting Washington DC"
Gaylord resort is a beautiful hotel that is in a very key location close to the national harbor, where there is a lot of stuff to do and see! Highly recommend staying here when coming to Washington DC.
"Hybrid Marriott with an Embassy Suites feel minus free breakfast, Hyatt feel"
I have mixed views toward this resort. It is a place to stay for a get away, maybe, but it is pricey as heck. Nothing is free, except you do get two bottles of water per stay, and use of Internet. Oh and tea and coffee. The atrium gives it that Embassy Suites feel the buck stops there, No cook to order free breakfast lol! And the cable is your subscription of Netflix or Hulu, unless you sign up for the week free trial. No Microwave, but you do get a fridge. I don't think they believe in you having left overs to warm The rooms are semi dated. The bathroom is updated, but some what awkward. I do like the fact that the toilet is separate from the sink area- which has two sinks, but the shower is right in there with the toilet and it is small or rather tight how they huge door is situated. The food shops inside the resort are expensive. Surprisingly you can go outside the resort and walk to area shops and food places and eat cheaper. There are some pricey places like stake houses, but we chose to for go that. Old Hickory Steak House- Food was good. Waite staff made it worth the visit. We were celebrating a birthday so they went out of there way to be special to us. Wine list choice was good. Paired well with meal. National Pastime Sports Bar And Grill- Pricey for portions but good. Food was satisfying especially since it was late and not wanting to do room service. Pose roof top Lounge was cute. You can sit outside ad enjoy a breeze, or inside where they have LOUD music and lights etc. Nice social place, if you can hear anyone (giggle) The Cocoa Bean was okay for coffee: typical Starbucks. They are building a ballroom. Should be nice for weddings etc. The outlet is laughable. I won't even go into it, but if you are tourist perhaps that like to just spend $$$ go for it. I'm sure if you look hard enough you will find a deal or too, but the purpose of an outlet is to not have to look so hard for a bargain. No pets! Don't get me wrong I like pets, but my allergies don't. Also make sure the bed linens were actually changed or not sprayed with freshener, they tend to be itchy (hint) I really can't say that I would chose this for a vacation/staycation. Though they do give coupon books. (or some one gave us a booklet) It is nice for meetings or presentations etc. The staff was wonderful from parking, check in, housekeeping, maintenance, etc. The grounds are nice, I like the foliage in the atrium and the water lights show is cute. It wasn't a bad trip, it was quite nice. Just disappointing with the hype given it, and it lacked the luster. But that's my opinion. Try it for yourself. I believe most things are worth trying once. Would I go back' If someone else was paying, sure. If I had to pay, no.
"Typical Corporate Overindulgence- chearper hotels across the street."
I stayed @ the Gaylord for a business event. It's a very nice place - certainly fancy and they tend to you well. For me as a small business owner who is paying the bills it just isn't worth the price. Laser light shows in the atrium @ night, distant views of the National Mall from my room were nice. But, I also had a view of the much cheaper Residence Inn and Hampton Inn right across the street. Everything costs extra at these posh places. I had some time to kill so I checked about a mani-pedi in their spa ($125). A five minute walk found me at another little nail place where they charged $30. I had a little box shipped to me while I was there and I had to go to the FedEx business Center to pick it up. FedEx charged $15. just to hand the box to me. I often wonder why these nice hotels don't make it easier to recycle in your rooms.
"Attend BIG Meeting & Spend time with DC Family"
Excellent hotel to stay if you are ever in the DC, MD, or VA area. When I first arrived I was welcome professionally by Ashley at front desk in the elite line. My room was not quite ready so she sent me to the spa area after which I received a text that my room and followed by a call from Ashley to confirm. I was placed in an Atrium King Suite that was just simply beautiful, warm, and welcoming. I will highly recommend this property.
