I have had the privilege of staying here on two business trips to National Harbor and can report each stay has been a good one! I was warmly greeted by the front desk, and upgraded to a great King room facing the National Harbor waterfront. Rooms are super clean, modern, comfortable and I found to be perfect for the road...

The room was small with a view of a parking lot. The bathroom light lights up the entire room. Two nights for a total of $450. The bar in the lobby charged us $27 for two drinks and we had to go to the reception to spend $5 on pretzels to enjoy with our $16 drinks. Oh yeah, parking was...

I stayed at the AC Hotel for this year's Logistics Officer Association Symposium. The hotel was awesome and the staff was extremely accommodating! Kiera at the front desk being my favorite.

I'm usually a Gaylord visitor, but because I was staying for a quick stay for work, I decided to go for a more budget friendly hotel. I can tell you now, that I will always stay here when I come to National Harbor. I'm a gold Marriott member, and this was the first property that went out of the way...

Great views, nice rooms, sexy lounge all made for a perfect overnighter for me and my SO. Walked over to Bond 45 for dinner and drinks, finished the night off with a walk through the harbor and late night martinis at the bar inside AC Hotel. Great weekend getaway!

Immaculate room and lobby, friendly staff. Very modern hotel, situated across the street from the water. Many restaurants within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again. My only complaint was that the breakfast buffet was a bit pricey for not having any hot items available.

This hotel has the best rates from all the hotels in the Harbor. It is very clean, very modern and in a good location. The bar has specials every night. They have an outdoor patio accessible from the bar area, nice to sit and relax with a drink and watch the goings on from the 2nd floor. Everyone we met,...
