    Amazing hotel. If you are there for a special occasion, mention when you check in. We had an amazing room on the 17th floor, dead center of the atrium. Our room gave an amazing view of everything

    Fancy hotel that's open to the public. Offers an ambient atmosphere, while also being the home to a multitude of events, most notably the Holiday Ice Show! Right off the Potomac and near everything!

    Probably one of my favorite hotels, all time. Fancy and awesome. If you can, ask for suite 5-217. Best in the entire hotel. 400 sq foot balcony! Nicest room I've ever been in. Like the Savoy in London

    This place is awesome. Great staff, nice rooms, attention to detail and an indoor atrium that blows the mind. Convenient to everything by water, shuttle or taxi. This is my new DC go-to place.

    Beautiful hotel that has every amenity under the sun. Great pool and views. The surrounding area is awesome with tons of great restaurants. I suggest eating out because restaurants are very expensive

    Go down to the waterfront to see "The Awakening," public art built into the beach. The man is buried under the sand and his foot, knee, face and hand are part of the playground for kids to play on.

    The entire staff has been beyond spectacular and friendly. I especially like the Consider It Done yellow smiley button the phones. Great marketing and superior service.

    WARNING: before you book here, make sure that SACM's ceremony is not at the same time, you will suffer checking in and out, won't find parking spaces and almost 20,000 students wondering around 24/7.

    Large convention center..service has been attentive and pleasant except for the staff at the Belvedere lobby bar.....bring comfy shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking.

    They should make maps available at the desk. This place is huge. The rooms are nice and there are breathtaking views of the Potomac if you are lucky to get a room facing that way.

    This place books out very often. If you can't get a place see if your work colleagues can share a room and get free wifi and use of facilities till a room frees up for you to check into.

    Looking to save a dime...park at any of the nearby parking garages and check out happy hour at any of the nearby (outside resort) restaurants. Grace's is a winner. Public House is also worth a trip fo

    The pool also includes an indoor jacuzzi. Perfect to hang out after a workout. Tons of kids during the day so try to get there earlier.

    Nice eateries...scenery...events...club spot and plenty of spots around the area to have a good time with both adults and families.

    Great atmosphere. Recommend sitting by the fountain in the atrium and relax for a while. Rooms without atrium views don't have anything great to look at out the window but room is comfortable.

    They had an amazing Christmas program called Ice. The rooms are nice. A huge con is that the bars and restaurants are WAY overpriced! The good news is that you can walk to several restaurants.

    Beautiful hotel, in a great location. Take the bus into DC instead of a taxi - about as long to get there and MUCH cheaper

    If you're only there for conferences it's much cheaper to use public parking (7+hrs is a flat $11) is. Say hi to my mom "Adelaida" if you visit the Pienza :)

    DO come for ICE plan to relax on the holidays or come early in the season or right after. The hotel is beautiful at night. To save money stay at a hotel nearby.

    I stayed at the Gaylord for the Blogalicious Weekend Conference on October 21-23, 2011. The banquet, bell desk, and concierge were very helpful when I had face to face interactions with them.

    Usually empty but obviously federally funded this resort is here to stay. Don't be fooled by the "National Harbor" name the Gaylord is in Maryland and comes with quite a bit of rift raft. Stay indoors Read more

    The food and facilities are great. Loved the room decor. However, I did not have heat in my room or hot water in the bathroom sinks on October 21-23. The hotel did not solve the issue.

    Wear comfy shoes. The place is huge. Also now have Starbucks kiosks and No real Starbucks. Expensive and few restaurants in the hotel. Go out for great deals. Really in the middle of nowhere.

    The name "National Harbor" is a bit of a misnomer... Nowhere near DC and there isn't much to do in or around this bio-dome hotel. It's actually probably cheaper to stay downtown too....

    I have one sentence to describe the Gaylord: A pretty hotel with good food, friendly staff, NO HEAT in rooms, NO HOT WATER in bathroom sinks in room, poor shuttle service, and lots of drama!

    No housekeeping issues for me, room was clean, air flowed properly, bed was comfy. Do look for the nearest elevator to your room or else be prepared to walk! Well, be prepared to walk anyways. Huge.

    It is expensive, but you have everything you need right in the area. It is pricey for restaurants and drinks though. The hotel also does not accept frequent travel points, so keep this in mind.

    If you decide to take the Metro from DC to here plan on it being about an hour trip one way. Nice rooms, overpriced restaurants though. Mostly for conventioners

    If you're here for the 2011 NAIS show, stop by One Call Nows booth and say hi to Josh. If you're here for anything else, you have to try their carrot cake!!

    Park in the public garages and walk over to save some cash. Especially if you will be there multiple days.

    When you go to check out, skip the line at concierge and use your remote to check out on the TV in your room.

    If you're looking craft beer there is market down the street with a decent selection. Otherwise find a Whole Foods.

    While the hotel is comfortable and lively, there are a few things lacking. For instance, the workout facility is minuscule compared to the hotel. I don't get it.

    For such a nice place (with an $18 resort fee!) I would've expected the guest Wi-Fi to be better. Prepare for disconnect frustrations...
