This hotel is a great option if you are attending a conference at the Gaylord. It's modern decor, excellent amenities and great location makes this my go to. The views of the harbor, the Wilson Bridge and Alexandria are hard to beat.

This was our first time at the AC Hotel and we liked the No Party rule. We stayed Fri/Sat nights and on Fri--there was a prom. Music, laughter, and groups of 4-6 young people started disturbing the quiet of the hotel at 12:00 AM and continued until about 4:00 AM, when the revelers were evicted. The front desk staff were...

I was nearby for business and extended my my trip for a one night to check out the area and the new casino. My stay began with friendly and efficient staff at the front desk. After placing my bags in the room, I ventured downstairs to begin exploring the area but not before obtaining a complementary cappuccino in the lobby....

This is a good hotel for a short stay like a long weekend. Rooms have a European feel. and very clean. The staff was very friendly. The bartenders (Soy and Abdullah) were great. They offer free WIFI. Conveniently located.

I want to make special mention of the exceptional and above par service and friendliness of Mrs. Maria Mc Dougall-Williams. She was always professional and kind in her manner at all times. From our initial meeting on check-in when she assisted me in dealing with a credit card matter to her daily pleasantries, her attitude always impressed me and would...

Now I know what its like to sleep in a shoe box. I bet that the rooms in Japan are larger. I was very disappointed and I don't recommend it to any one. National Harbor is a very beautiful place to visit but please sleep somewhere else. Oh by the way the cost of the shoe box was $250.00 for...

Dear Albert D, Thank you for reviewing your stay at our hotel. I am so sorry to read that you were disappointed by the layout of our hotel. Due to the European inspiration of the AC Brand, our guest rooms are on the smaller, or boutique side, and I do apologize if that did not provide you with a comfortable...

We stayed here because of a conference at the Gaylord. Plus I am Marriott Silver Elite, so I thought I'd get some points. The location is convenient, the lobby looked inviting. But our bathroom was not cleaned prior to our arrival. We mentioned this to the front desk but they didn't seem to be concerned. The housekeeping the next day...

This was a very cool hotel that had a very european feel. The rooms are modern and amemities were great. The breakfast was a traditional european, which is pastries, salamis and assorted sliced cheeses. The bed faced the windows and TV's were hung on the wall. Liked it.

AC was an overflow hotel to the Gaylord Convention Resort, and I was delightfully surprised by my stay. For future conventions, definitely plan to choose the AC, as their staff and amenities really compensate for the walk to the convention. 1) As a gold member, I receive a $10 gift voucher to spend towards purchases, really nice touch. 2) they...
