Guess this review is pointless as this property is supposedly being sold. We learned this from the staff who seemed none too happy about this. Needless to say it was pretty obvious as the condition of everything in the hotel appeared to have just been let go for the past few months. It's shame as the views were nice etc. also a real shame from the customers point of view!
Great inexpensive stay at National Harbor

I was at the Gaylord for a conference, but couldn't afford their prices. I got a room here for less than half. The room is not big, but has everything you need. It has that modern decor, including nice amenities like a flat screen TV, free wifi, charging/AV station and even a free bottle of water. Location is great, as you can walk to numerous restaurants.
Always a nice stay

We've stayed at this hotel a number of times and have enjoyed each stay. Rooms are pretty basic but comfortable for a night or two. The rooms are always clean and the service is great. We'll definitely return. Great location as well - steps away from the harbor, restaurants and shops!
Not what I expected.

My coworker and I opted for Aloft over Hampton Inn based on online pictures. Boy were we all wrong. First coming off of the elevator, the hallway smelled like a pile of dirty diapers and the carpet looked like it had not been cleaned or vacuumed in a while. Our rooms smelled funny and one room had a huge spot on the floor. The white bedspread had yellow spots which really grossed me out. We immediately went back downstairs to request to be move into other rooms. The clerk didn't seem to pleased but he corrected the problem and placed us in new rooms. The rooms seemed a little bit better. It smelled and felt cleaner. The view is great and the lounge area seems very convenient but I would not recommend this hotel. It definitely needs an overhaul. Oh yeah, the clerk informed us with the wrong time for breakfast and he should also know that it is not free continental when asked.
A better alternative to the Gaylord resort

I stayed at Aloft for two nights then had to move to the Gaylord Resort as this had already been booked. I much preferred Aloft. Friendly staff. Was given breakfast vouchers even though this wasn't included with my online booking. Clean, well designed rooms. Only reason is not 5 stars is because breakfast is served in plastic box (but everything seems to be disposable around here).
