Initial room was advertised with a view. That was not the case. Had to significantly upgrade to get a real river/atrium view. Could not take advantage of spa services due to staff availability. As a plus, all staff encountered were outstanding.

The overall hotel stay and resort experience did not commensurate to the expensive rate per night that they have charged us with. The room we stayed was nothing special compared to quality inn or comfort inn hotels. The hair dryer did not work and the TV remote barely worked to nitpick on basic room amenities for a $500 /night hotel stay. The restroom at the indoor pool was way too nasty for such a resort as if it wasn’t maintained for cleanliness for Gaylord type resort. This Gaylord national harbor resort comes nothing close to the Gaylord Grapevine resort in Texas that we have stayed at before. Gaylord National Harbor Resort is a complete disappointment and is something we will NOT be doing again in the future!
