I wish I had taken the negative reviews for this hotel seriously. I read them, but booked this two-night stay anyways thinking my experience would differ. Please do not make my mistake and save yourself the aggravation. We traveled to the DC area to attend the Presidential Inauguration. Initially, I was impressed with this hotel. The lobby was sleek, modern,...

Stayed here twice as alternative to paying MGM Casino room rates. Location is very good- just about a mile from the casino. The bedding is nice and the bath towels are amazing. A few minor complaints- 1. The shuttle only runs until midnight. On weekends, it really needs to run later for the casino patrons. 2. Parking is annoying- only...

The good - Front desk staff were great...smiles all the way around...given the proximity to MGM and Alexandria, great price...buffet was better than average but considering it is part of the room cost, quality was ok but staff are great! Room and bed were fine but shower area needs attention - rust on the ceiling - no excuse for this!...

Loved staying here! It was priced amazingly considering the other hotels around were soooo expensive. This one was just right! Clean room! Free shuttle! Free parking! Great bar! It's only like 1.5 from the national harbor. So getting there is easy using the shuttle or Lyft. Overall the hotel was great!

We stayed at the hotel when we had a plumbing issue. When I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is going through a renovation, and everything has or is in the process of being renovated. The breakfast buffet was great, dinner was yummy, and we'd definitely stay again for a staycation.

We stayed here over a weekend for a family event. Traffic to this area is typical DC, horrific. This hotel has been recently renovated. The room doors did not shut completely on their own. Usually you have to beat the door or get smushed because it's moving so fast. Not the case at this hotel, too often a family member...

Dear Hnnaah M Thank you for your constructive feedback. Indeed, DC beltway traffic continues to be problematic and with MGM National Harbor recent opening it is naturally expected to increase. We encourage guests to double-check doors are locked properly, there's no malfunction sometimes corridor air-pressure requires a little push! All our facilities have been fully renovated since your review including...
