Good hotel overall, the lobby area is very nice and updated and the staff were friendly, breakfast was decent, downfall was that the bed was alittle hard. Very close to the MGM it was a 15-20 min walk the MGM also has free parking which was nice compared to most places. Also wouldn't recommend walking back to the hotel at...

Stayed here for a one night recreational visit. Chose this hotel because of the good reviews, amenities, and reasonable rates. It is a few miles from the harbor waterfront but has a convenient shuttle that stops at 4 popular locations. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and quiet. Room includes a fridge and microwave. The only issue...

My husband and I stayed here for one night. Hotel was very clean! Staff was friendly. It had a nice bar. Room was very clean and the bed was confortable. Great water pressure! Walls were a little thin. We could hear our neighbors the next morning, but they were a little loud. Elevators were a little slow. Overall great stay!

This is a nice hotel with good weekend rates and a free shuttle to the MGM Casino at National Harbor: clean, modern with a helpful staff. However, there is no harbor by its side.

Hello Kaneforgov Thank you for your constructive feedback. Although we're located .5 mile from National Harbor weekend traffic has certainly increased since the opening of MGM National Harbor. Additional country road access improvements have been built to accommodate the attractions. Trust I will review lighting brightness and ensure our window treatment is modified to fit properly.

While attending a convention at the Gaylord Hotel, we had 3 laptops stolen from our room. The computers were all still packed in backpacks, so the thief moved in and out quickly, taking nothing else.
