Prom Night - Overnight

Posted May 12, 2015
Pros: Although we didn't check in until very late, they were able to accommodate our request for adjoining rooms, which were clean, comfortable, and lovely.
Cons: We checked in at about 11:30, and checked out by 11 am. I felt that the $18 per room activity fees for the pool, gym, etc., could have been waived.
Location: Lovely placed to walk around for an early morning stroll, and there is plenty of nearby shopping.
My daughter and a friend stayed overnight after their prom. Her friend's grandmother and I stayed in an adjoining room with each room having two queen beds. There was an afterparty in one of the other suites, which is why we stayed, so that we didn't have to worry about transportation afterwards. While the students partied, we watched tv, wiling away the hours until they returned to the room for the night. I would recommend this arrangement for anyone, because the girls had a place to change their close for the next party, and to crash once it was over. Also, we knew they were safe and we were nearby, without having to hover over them.

Great hotel, but some rooms ARE HORRIBLE !

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: Atrium
Cons: Close the rooms that have no sunlight.
Location: National Harbor is A whole city built about 6 years ago on the Patomac. Very lovely.
We stayed the night of May 2, 2015. During check in the clerk "tsked" that we used a 3rd party to book the room. We thought nothing of this, until we saw the view from our room. Our view was a hallway with a rusty light fixture and a men's room door. That is no exageration. Since we were only there for one night, we didn't think it worth getting a different room. The clerks were useless to our complaints, but the manager made a rate adjustment that was marginally acceptable. The Gaylord needs to realize that a full luxury hotel and full live casino is opening nearby in less than 18 months and the cannot antagonize guests. There was No Direct Sunlight in this room and the adjacent ones. Does this meet building codes? Don't think so.

Hotel is a spectacle in a booming new development

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Perfect area with plenty of amenities for short stays. Just close enough to easily visit DC while still far enough away from its bustle.

Don't believe the hype

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Big facility. Overcrowded. Staff didn't make us feel welcome. Paid for a deluxe room. Nothing deluxe about it. Nothing special about this place other than the name and the location. Would not recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Common areas
Cons: Sport Bar food was less than average. For an hotel of that kind I would expect more options and less frozen/reheated food. Nobody picks phone at front
Very nice facility but service and restaurants where not at the top level.
