    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

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    Nice eateries...scenery...events...club spot and plenty of spots around the area to have a good time for adults and families...check it out and let me know what you think!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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....

    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.

    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.

    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.

    After using part of the toiletries, rather than replacing them, housekeeping put them nicely back into their presentation spots. Also walk around your floor completely to find the closest elevator.

    We chose not to move to another room since it was about 1:00 am and we were leaving very early in the AM and had no energy to pack up all of our stuff. So our bill was reduced by $100.

    A massive complex that one should avoid unless coming for a convention. It's a great convention hall but is too crowded, expansive, and overpriced for a vacation.

    If you have to stay here, hit the restaurants outside the resort for real value of dining experience. The prices for food & drink inside are inflated, with low quality and indifferent service at best.

    The rooms are definitely not worth this price, at any season. This is the same quality you would get at a Day's Inn, not remotely close to the quality of Vegas or Disneyworld. This is not a resort.
