I was a little worried after reading the reviews. I expected a "jail cell" sized room, but it actually was nice - perfect for one person. Think of it as a scaled down guest room in an average hotel. I had a double bed and a desk, a full bathroom with shower and an open closet rack. This is a... More

I always think of myself as a Runner from movie Logan's Run when I'm here...post-apocalyptic concrete sarcophagus...that I can't get out of...with really good food. Conference center is built for meetings not for hanging in your room. Confusing layout! I get lost every time. 10 years ago there were no phones or TVs in rooms, so that is better. Rooms... More

Dear No T, Yes, we do get our exercise here at The National and most guests tell us it’s a great way to work off the wonderful meals, 3 times a day. Just so you know, we have just updated our TVs in the rooms and have expanded our wireless network to improve our guests’ experience. Thank you for the... More

The staff universally bent-over-backwards to make everything perfect. Conference facilities were superb. My guest room was spacious and comfortable. (Although, I understand some rooms are smaller.) Dining room was amazing. Food was fresh and delicious. The variety was astounding. (Navigating/walking distances in-house can be daunting, at first.)

Attended a three-day conference where we met, ate, and stayed at the National Conference Center. The rooms reminded me of college dorm rooms in that they were small, but were adequate. The food was excellent and reminded me of a cruise ship in that I completely over-ate. The conference space was very cold in the plenary sessions, and very warm... More

Thank you, Debbi L, for your 5 star rating. The sleeping rooms, although they are small, are comfortable and have all the amenities guests need.

Rooms and amenities are difficult to find. Rooms are small. Some had refrigerators and one a microwave, but mine did not. The room between the corner wall and the bed was so small it was difficult to get your luggage out from the doorway. If there had been a fire, I'm not sure I could of found the nearest exit... More

I hated this place. A huge concrete mess. Room was so small that if you take more than three steps you'll run into something. I nearly killed myself stepping out of the shower--it's elevated but not in a good way. Gym was good size but everything is so spread out it would take ten minutes just to find it. Totally... More

JoHoSeattle: Your comments are very personal. The National is a conference center, not a hotel. And as previous reviews stated, the rooms are small for a reason; we are about getting people out of their rooms to socialize, discuss and collaborate. Our guests are on a schedule and their meal times are set according to the planners’ request and yes,... More

So I'm told this is an old government bunker that is now owned by Verizon. Can't verify but that's what I'm told. The staff are really nice. The facilities are a little primitive.

Dear NWA: Thank you for taking time to post your thoughts here. I think we can set you straight on the history of the building.

In my experience, this the weirdest hotel I've ever stayed in. It looks like a military facility built to accommodate nuclear fall out, and is amazingly disorienting to navigate. The room I stayed in was extremely small, like a single-person dorm. It's a vast facility, so one would expect comparable services, but is lacking in my opinion in dining options... More

Dear julesdamedic: Thank you for taking time to post your personal impression of The National Conference Center. We are not a hotel, but a learning & conference center.

First visit to NCC and I am totally satisfied with the accommodations, meeting spaces, and especially with the facility staff. Special compliments to the Executive Chef and his staff as well as everyone involved in the food service aspect of this organization. Quality, quantity, variety, and presentation were all top shelf.
