The location is an up and coming

The location is an up and coming area. When all the shops and entertainment venues open this will be an amazing place. The hotel is big and the common areas are very attractive. The rooms are a little small and not up to par. The bed was passable. The pool was highly chlorinated. The shower pressure was just a slight sprinkle. The housekeeping service would wake you you up every morning at 8 am including weekends ( Not good) . The rest of the staff were very nice and friendly.

I was at the hotel for a conference,

I was at the hotel for a conference, and it turned out to be a great venue for a conference and as a hotel. The room was very large and very comfortable, and the service was great throughout my stay. Unfortunately National Harbor is fairly new and you do feel a little isolated, but in the end, it was the conference I was there for.

Beautiful new hotel and resort

Beautiful new hotel and resort area still struggling to meet expectations. Room and check in service were acceptable, but lobby bar didn't open until 4pm with check in at 3pm. Recommend lobby bar open at 2pm. Checkout was a disaster - ended up calling in the checkout, waited nearly an hour for the car to be retrieved by the valet. Checkout was at 11am, but the shops in National Harbor (outside the Gaylord) didn't open until noon. We did get a refund for the valet car park service. Hotel charges $15 per day for amenities - whether you use them or not.

The staff was extremely friendly

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. You can tell there was lots of training in customer service. The hotel was very new and beautiful however the walls seemed very thin because you could hear normal conversations in the rooms next door. Also the resort fee seem excessive. It would be better and more honest to just build it into the price of the room. It was not convenient to find a quick lunch without sitting down in an expensive restaurant or having a few choices at a coffee shop.

Overall hotel accomodation was

Overall hotel accomodation was extremely very clean. I was unhappy about two things...the price of parking which self park was $19.00 per day and the bed was very noisy. For a 5-star hotel, I was disappointed with the creaking bed which resounded with every turn you make.
