How to Get There
Stayed here for three nights at a business convention. Lots of activities and a fun hotel. This is an upscale, $800,000 facility capable of handling 4,000 guest and 2-3 conventions at the same time. A nightly laser show in the atrium. No disappointment with the facility or any of the services.
We were impressed with National Harbor, lots to see and do during our free time.
Our group, more than 2000, held our annual meeting at the hotel and convention center. The rooms were nearby, above the large meeting rooms and the elevators we able to transport our group to/from meetings.
The check-in process at the hotel was easy, but we experienced long lines. Our room had an interior balcony: we looked out into the atrium. During the five day stay, we were never able to use the iPhone key to open our door. The safe was large enough to hold my 15-inch laptop (barely). Our room had two double beds on extended wood frames – a great way to bust a foot. The bathroom needed a night light.
Every evening, the hotel has a laser light show inside the atrium. The best place to watch the show was from the downstairs lounge.
There are lots of nearby restaurants and activities. As you might expect, the food and drink prices in the hotel were expensive when compared to neighboring cafes.
I stayed here 7/10-7/12 for a fundraising conference. It was very convenient for attending the conference, but the room itself was in need of TLC and my nights were not very restful. The toilet had a leak of some sort so it would run every 10 minutes or so, loudly, but shutting both bathroom doors allowed me to sleep through the noise. However, I was awoken repeatedly by the room’s AC unit clicking on. Sometimes it made a moderately loud noise; the other times it reached a loud vibrating crescendo that was impossible to sleep through. It equated to two long nights. The place is sprawling so be prepared to walk down some long hallways to get you your room. On the positive side, parking was easy - just be sure to give them your parking ticket to attach to your room, then when you check out keep a room key to swipe out of the garage by 5 the day of checkout. Convenient for many restaurants and bars in a nice, new area.
I was here for a convention. The convention center has a nice layout but lacks adequate bathroom facilities for the amount of people that it houses. Our room was always clean however the bed was like a rock. I did not sleep well because I tossed and turned all night because my hips and rib cage hurt so bad. It looked like the mattress was laying on a sheet of plywood. The bed had legs that stuck out funny and I both stubbed my toe and smashed my knee in the middle of the night. It's a very poor design. I will say that most of the staff that we dealt with was both courteous and polite. We did not eat in the hotel because it is overpriced and there were numerous restaurants within a very short walking distance. Breakfast buffet for 27 bucks is just too much to pay.
I checked into the hotel at 11:00am on July 4th. Much to my delight I was able to go directly to my room, which was lovely. Our view was of the roof but I don't really care what my view is and we got a very good rate so I wasn't expecting a view.
The check-in was amazing. All of the desks were manned and there were employees offering water to those waiting.
We had lunch at the only restaurant available, National Pastime Sports Bar. Food was good. Service was fairly good. We ate in the bar area because it over looked the windows. Those who chose to sit there had to go up to the bar to order. This is fine but I would think a bartender would at least call out and greet you orrrr if not busy, come out and take your order. There were two bartenders on and they weren't busy. However, I get it rules are rules.
What I don't understand is why the patio was not open. It was clearly busy, there was actually a wait to be seated. There was a conference going on so the hotel capacity was anticipated.
The resort is so nice and there is so much to offer. I was particularly impressed with a performer in the lobby for the enjoyment of those checking in. However, they stagger what is open and what isn't. There should be more choices for casual dining, open at the same time. Why close the coffee shop at 2:00? Yes, guests can go wait in line at the market but why?
There are cute shops in the atrium. One is called Stars and Stripes the other is a Vera Bradly/Brighton store. Neither were ever open at the same time.There is a nice clothing store but the hours there were short as well. Again, the hotel was crazy busy. Keep everything open for guests to enjoy!
