Gaylord hotels are, by nature, enormous. The Gaylord National is no exception. It's a city in itself. That said, the rooms are spacious and clean. The amenities are upscale. The conference food and beverage are high quality. Most importantly, the staff is friendly and knowledgable. Not sure I'd recommend for a family vacation. For meetings; they do not disappoint.

World class facilities, luxurious, conveniently located near D.C. plenty of dining options both onsite, and in adjacent neighborhood. Cadillac Ranch would be a good stop on a weekend night. During the Christmas holidays, the hotel is beautifully adorned, and hosts "Christmas on the Potomac".

The size of the conference has grown from 1700 to 2500+, The execution of events was mostly well cone. Some serious A/V problems (which were done in-house. Lunches and breakfast were adequate. Evening events went well. I look at the hotel from an attendee, speaker, and organizer. Still room for improvement.

Hotel was huge and beautiful! Unfortunately the weather was horrible while in town but there was plenty of restaurants and shopping at the hotel. Staff was extremely kind and friendly. My 2 issues where lack of staffing for the coffee and concessions. 3 conventions and it took 45 min to get a coffee and by 830am they were out of fresh muffins and pastries and would not make more. And issue number 2 was lack of staffing in the bar and lounges in the evening. I would love to return to this ... Read more

My company booked us at this hotel because we were attending a convention here. Driving up to the hotel in the Supershuttle I was very impressed, it was enormous and beautiful! I checked in and the front desk told me to "go over there" to get my elevator to my room on the 2nd floor, and pointed in the direction behind me. I asked the clerk if they could get me some glue to fix the wheel on my suitcase that the airline broke. The girl called the maintenance dept and they told her they didn't have... Read more

Stayed at the hotel for a conference. Overall it was a good experience. There are restaurants and shops within the hotel. And odd feature was that my room had a shower only instead of a shower/tub. The area around the hotel is nice. The food is a bit expensive but standard fare for a conference hotel area.

Just got back from this hotel. Had a great conference and the rooms were nice. Though I hate when they say $15 resort fee for items that should be included with the room anyway (gym, pool, wifi). Good place for a conference, though be prepared to compete for space with multiple conferences. Excellent sports bar, largest screen I may have ever seen. The pool was dull, only indoors and quite shallow. The hotel itself looked like a mini-city (everything you need is inside) which is good because you... Read more

I went here in 2008, maybe it was 2009 and it was just beautiful. It has a beautiful atrium. We did not have a room with a view of that which is great as I heard it can get loud. But the balcony's overlook it so I think that would be nice. They had a sand sculpture contest going on at the time so it was fun to walk around and look at all of the talent. The food that is around the atrium is also yummy and they had a great light show that goes on throughout the day.

Stayed in king size suite for 2 nights. Very large hotel with nice bars and restaurants. Food was above average, and friendly staff. Customer service was good.

We came to spend a night to celebrate our anniversary, thinking it would be special and luxury. I came away thinking there are some impressive big moves they made with this property, but when it comes to actual service to guests it just didn't seem worth it. I was nickel and dimed from the start when the staff at check in insisted they had to see a AAA card for my rate, and when I didn't have it on me, they would not accept my call to AAA to speak with an agent to verify my current membership. ...

I travel often and have learned to double and trip check my room when leaving. This one time I was in a hurry and on a business call and left a sports watch and electric toothbrush in the room. I realized it flying hone that afternoon. I just did not remember putting then into the suitcase. So, yes I called the hotel the next day, knowing what the answer would be "no".

I'm not giving this hotel high points mainly because it was very expensive, and either the sheets and/or the mattress pad was not a natural fibre, felt like polyester. I realize polyester may clean more easily and perhaps last longer, than cotton, but they are totally uncomfortable. I kept waking up sweating, I need fabrics that breathe next to my skin.

It was a pleasant surprise to see a hand written note from our housekeeper wishing us a great stay. There's other good restaurant just across the street/ around the corner as well.

There is a guest-only bar on the upper floor, with an outside patio. Worth a visit!

I stayed at this hotel a while back and I have to say that these people are "high" on themselves. I have no idea "who" hires these people but you would think they didn't have any education what-so-ever. You would think you would get better service, especially in the area that it is located. Paying top dollar, and paying for parking on their on premises is just crazy, especially when you are paying a small fortune for their rooms!

My family & I stayed here for my graduation commencement and it was a grand place. I was disappointed that my room faced a brick wall and rocks. I asked if I could change, but was told all rooms were taken. I had made my reservation so many months ago. I guess I should have requested a view at that time. The commencement ceremony was large, so the hotel was busy with lines backed up at valet, bell, hop, restaurants. I wish my family could have enjoyed more of the experience, but the crowds...

The hotel is enormous and if you add the convention center, you can get plenty of exercise just by walking around.

The hotel has great facilities (pool/gym) and restaurants inside are of a good quality, however I do feel that pretty much everything inside the shops and the restaurants are WAY over priced. If I had more time during the convention I would have gone outside to the local store to buy snacks and drinks.

The Gaylord Conference center at National Harbour is a great venue for a conference.
