We reserved three rooms and only one of the rooms was ready by check in time which caused us to be late for our dinner and show reservations. Check in and check out took a very long time. The girl who checked us in did not activate our self parking ticket so we could not get in and out of the parking area. When we left and shared our experience with the same girl that checked us in, she did not accept responsibility or apologize. The manager did not charge us for parking which we appreciate and we understand things happen and people make mistakes, however, good customer service would be to accept responsibility and apologize. Her attitude affected us more than the mistakes that happened.

Nice but not worth the room rate!

I love where the Gaylord is located and the amenities however the rooms themselves were just like any other hotel room, nothing spectacular! The Pienza was AMAZING!!! Best part of the whole trip!!! Freshest fruit and food I’ve had in a long time!!!

Absolutely wonderful!

My stay at the Gaylord was absolutely amazing! The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The Christmas ambience of the hotel was exceptional and relaxing. I loved viewing the displays and shows in the atrium from my room balcony. The room itself was clean, comfortable and quiet. I was able to visit some of the shops and dining at the hotel and was quite pleased. The hotel has the convenience of being within walking distance to the great shopping and dining of National Harbor. This will be my go to hotel when I visit the Maryland area. I had such an amazing experience!!!!

hotel charges

Pros: Beautiful, clean, upscale.
Cons: Explain charges in advance and give the customer an opportunity to decline certain items.
Location: Plenty to do. Nice location.
Was charged $30 for parking which I was not aware of until I received the final printout and my bill was $30 more than what I was quoted.

Nice hotel but WAY overpriced

Pros: It was clean, the hotel staff were very friendly
Cons: distance to walk to the room. It was so far I feel like there should have been a bread crumb trail to lead me back.
I was less than impressed by our stay at the Gaylord. For the amount of the hotel room (basic) I would have figured that valet would be included in the price. Not so much the case. Our room had a wonderful view of the adjacent parking garage (sarcasm). And when we asked for an extended check out time we were told that that option was only reserved for "Gold Members". To say I was displeased with our experience at the hotel would be an understatement. You are paying only for the location, one in which you are almost guaranteed not to have a view of.
