Kara Collinge

Perfectly off I-95 south making it easy to get back on the high way Very quiet and very clean After an incredibly long day it was nice to be checked in quickly and efficiently even for the late hour I was doing so

All the staff were incredibly kind and helpful The room was spotless and the bed was as amazing as the omelette bar downstairs that was available during the complimentary breakfast I will always recommend staying here

diane eliezer

This is the nicest Embassy Suites I’ve stayed in, bar none Impeccably clean, large bathrooms, comfortable beds, excellent front desk The free hot breakfast features an omelet bar, and the free drinks from 5:30 – 7:30 each evening is a welcome tradition

We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed a great French Dip sandwich with sirloin and a Caesar Salad with about 8 oz of hotgrilled salmon, plus sides and drinks for under $4500 I would recommend this hotel to everybody The only “downsides” are (1) it’s incredibly convenient to DC /all tourist areas BUT there is nothing close by except a Wendy’s (2) the lighting in the rooms is absolutely awful, just plain DARK and (3) $10 per night to park Other than that, I’ll continue to make this my go-to hotel in VA/DC

Angelo Cruz

Quite honestly one of the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had! From booking online to arriving, I was treated with respect and as a true guest In a post-covered world where we’re all putting the pieces back together, it is great to see this establishment really taking care of people and making them feel at home I have to really applaud Sabrina and Alex at the front desk

Nothing beats a stay at the Hilton and Embassy knocks that right out of the park!

This hotel is not in Alexandria They charge a $100 “refundable” fee on top of your room fee for incidentals This is not even noted on your room charge recipes

So I hope I am not going to be scammed out of $100 The first room we had smelled horribly of marijuana We had to ask to move rooms as there is no way I would stay in that room The hotelHas been updated but there are some things that were not replaced The bathroom door did not close The pool water was cloudy and the hot tub was closed The towels had hair on them The breakfast was decent We only stayed here for one night so it was good enough There area is a little sketchy as it is on the “other side” of the highway from Alexandria Staff was friendly

Cary Paul

The staff was great That’s about it The first room I received was across from the hotel’s laundry

It was extremely hot Couldn’t get the temp inside the room below 78 degrees The second room was better The area is unsafe While I was there a car was broken into and someone’s truck was stolen a few days later People yelling all night outside the hotel, traffic and fire trucks all night, It was loud all the time I could hear people talking in the hall and in the rooms next to meThere is large gaps under the doors so you hear everything I wouldn’t pay to stay here I found a roach crawling around and there is an ant problem The guy in the room next to me was spraying bug killer around his room He said he went a bought some Spend your money someplace else

Samantha Willows

We stayed here on our visit to DC A good choice, the breakfast was subpar (there were no make your own waffles, probably for sanitary reasons, and the sausages and eggs were not particularly delicious) but the rooms were clean and it was fairly quiet The carpets could use a good deep clean, but that’s the case with anything that gets foot traffic

I’d give them 10 stars for the kind of service they offered The front desk staff are just so polite, super friendly and amazing Like all of them right from the one who was deputed at night who checked us in and the staff the next day morning

I have never experienced such kind of amazing service in any other Marriott so far You can book this place to stay without a thought and you won’t be disappointed

Jed Johnson

Clean, super friendly, and great costumer service I was on business and it had to be at my conference early I forgot my razor, called down to the front desk late to see if they had any for sale at the market place

No charge, the front desk offer to bring me one whenever I needed it This is the reason a stay loyal to the Marriott Brand Thank you for the great service!

tamisha Amire

The hotel was very clean and comfortable I was given a handicap room with a roll in shower not sure why My card was charged for $100 no one could explain to me why

I was told the manager would reverse the charge This morning I was charged an additional $120 I spoke with the manager Sherry who explained that I was not checked out of the hotel and the general manager charged my card I was no longer at the hotel So this place basically had a free for all with my debit card Now I have to wait for them to reverse these unauthorized charges I am very upset My card was charged a total of $220 without my knowledge or permission

Rob Jezior

We had the BEST experience here!!! My wife and I stayed there for a short getaway weekend and as soon as we stepped in we were welcomed by Brandon at the front desk He was the nicest front desk agent we have had the pleasure to meet He was very personable and we had a great conversation

He went above and beyond and sent us a bottle of champagne to our room! Very nice gentleman The hotel itself was also fantastic Very clean and beautiful

Joseph Berkowitz

This is a very nice hotel in a fabulous location Our room was one of the nicest, and had a great view of the water The style was hip but a bit colorless

The property has a nice gym, restaurant with bar and outdoor sundeck, although it was partially blocked off and plantings needed some attention Front desk staff were all lovely and helpful Great all in all Could use a few tweaks

Nina

Dog friendly hotels are usually a hit or miss, and this one is a hit! Great overall experience during our stay The staff are friendly and helpful, and the room we stayed in have a nice layout and was very clean Common areas are beautifully designed as well

Nice location too Walking distance to a lot of shops, restaurants, and parksThere IS parking available, but it’s pretty tight Think DC parking garages but smaller capacity However, there is valet available

Jessica G. Stansen

We were Leary staying here because of other negative reviews but they proved to be wrong The front desk staff was pleasant upon arrival, check in was easy and the lobby was clean and inviting Most importantly the room was very clean and comfy and the water pressure in the bathroom was strong

Complimentary coffee in the morning is always appreciated The elevators have a security measure that You need your room key to activate from the lobby I appreciate that because you don’t have unwanted visitors roaming around the hotel A bonus to this hotel is FREE parking! I didn’t give it 5 stars because the rooms didn’t have microwaves I would visit this establishment again

Kaci Cobb

Here now Hotel is nice Staff is friendly

Good location The only issue we really have is there’s no microwave in the room so we can’t really heat up anything for the kids They like to eat half their dinner and bring the rest for later or breakfast Kind of disappointing we can’t do that So just a suggestion would be to add a microwave to the rooms

Kayla Minguez

Happy we were able to check in early as we just moved to the area and had been driving cross-country Desk staff were kind and helpful Room was fine but looked a bit outdated and there was a weird stain on the bathroom wallpaper by the sink that kind of made me think of Forensic Files

The AC also never really seemed to cool the room down It was fine for an overnight but for a Hilton I’d say good not great

Me and family booked a night here from out of state Family of 4 with the king suite and pull out couch First off the pool doesn’t exist so don’t pack bathing suits nor believe the pictures

We were told it had been out of use for 6 years In our room on the south tower side we had no air and not to mention we had two toddlers with us So it wasn’t pleasant nor did I sleep good Parking is ridiculous being $42 a night but I guess your car stays safe right…? The breakfast that we paid for with our reservation was okay not the best breakfast I’ve had and it kind of bothered my family because waiters tried serving us when we didn’t want to be served and bothered us while eating wanting a tip…when our food was paid for…and it’s a buffet The pull out couch for my oldest toddler was mediocre outdated kinda feeling I will have to say it was clean more than other hotels I’ve been to so I give it that and it was close to a lot of attractions That’s about it!

Sharion Flood

My daughter was graduating from college in the area so I booked a room here Upon booking the room, I asked was there a pool and was told yes there is an indoor pool On the website, it states there’s a microwave and refrigerator in the room

Upon arrival, there was only a refrigerator but no microwave My granddaughter wanted to go to the pool so after her, my niece and nephew got dressed, we called the front desk to inquire about the location of the pool and was told that there hadn’t been a pool in the past 5 years I had an event to attend with my daughter so I made a call to the hotel while I was out to ask about the microwave that was suppose to be in the room and was told they would bring me one Upon returning to the room (picture provided) this is what I was provided It looks as if they pulled it out of an employee lounge or something with dents all over it The 2nd night the cable went out and did not come back on (pictures provided) I called the front desk and was told that they had called for repair For taxes and fees, I was charged the same amount as another night of stay ($466 for 2 nights) (pictures of room provided)I had family in another room, which they did not have any air conditioning The hotel did have it repaired which worked for a few hours then went back out, however they did have cable the entire stayNot 1 time did I receive an apology for any of the inconveniences from this hotel staff I attempted one more time to address all of the inconveniences upon check out At that time they offered to comp my parking which I didn’t have a car there, so I asked that they comp my family with the room that had no air conditioning They did do that for themThe staff acted as if all issues happen on a regular basis as they are quick to respond without checking any of it outI would never stay at another Double Tree anything I do not recommend this hotel under any circumstances

Cheryl Denise

The service at this hotel was great and the staff was really friendly The rooms though

they really need to be updated Our bathroom mirror was broken all along the edges – which is a hazard – and the “King” bed in our suite was definitely a Queen Our shower didn’t drain properly, and since there is no daily housekeeping, that meant we needed to clean our own tub Good thing I had my Clorox wipesbut I didn’t pay the nightly fees to clean my own tub in a hotel suite Yes, maybe I could’ve switched rooms but who wants to do that after dragging your luggage to your room and unpacking? The A/C was questionable – you had to turn it down to the mid 60s to get the air up-to-par Note: this is coming from someone who typically likes the room in the 70sIf you don’t care about any of the above and you need a hotel in a great location, then by all meansknock yourself out

She came to us after the cleaning person had to call her for us She showed up all mad and told us to HUSH!!! 🤦🏽‍♂️ very rude, motel six should hire her It made us feel like we were in another hotelThis one star missing is for her treatmentBar crew was very friendly and funny! 😝 cat lady!Clean rooms, clean bathrooms, comfortable beds!

Bathroom was nice, we couldn’t find the switch for the exhaust fan Water pressure was great and got hot water right awayBreakfast each day was good and well stockedCookies in the evening in the lobbyI would stay there again

Roy Brown

Spent three nights for a wedding weekend, along with the wedding party and several other guests The room was reliably Hampton Inn comfortable The manager was not only accommodating to the group, he was also quite friendly, speaking whenever he saw us and engaging in conversation whenever we were waiting for someone to come down

He made sure to have our room serviced when we did not check out on Sunday I give extra credit to any hotel with waffles for breakfast The rest of the breakfast fare was pretty typical Two things to know: 1 Parking, while adequate, is mostly not convenient to the main entrance 2 There are no restaurants within walking distance, but the hotel has a list of nearby places

Trent

This was a wonderful place The room was very clean and well organized and had a work area, refrigerator, microwave, etc the room was full sanitized and sealed prior to check in

There were multiple hand sanitizer stations throughout the hotel Hot and fresh coffee was available in the lobby 24/7 and there was a very well stocked mini-store for late night munchies There was a full breakfast in the mornings from 6 to 10 There was also free WiFi

Ryan Jensen

Nice hotel with a lot of inconveniences The room are great; goof climate control, comfortable bed, and quality towels, etc The problem is that the hotel is not set up for a normal traveler

It is a convention center primarily so if the event is co-located at the hotel, it’s great If you’re visiting DC and want to stay here for the nearby restaurants and easy access to the Maryland side, go elsewhere First of all, checking in is a process It took me probably 30 minutes to get to my room even though I had made a reservation There are long waiting lines at the check-in desk, and even though I’m an elite member, there was only one employee handling the check in Even after check-in, the hotel layout is so confusing it took me a minute just to find the elevators Second was the parking garage; it is a hike to get to and very expensive Third was the “resort fee” This is a sneaky way to charge you $22 more a day for your stay They say it includes dry cleaning and some other things but its a poor facade for an excuse to nickle and dime the guests–if I want dry cleaning, I’ll pay for it separately I was originally planning on staying there for an entire week, but decided to check out on the second dayI was excited to stay at this top rated hotel due to its location and surrounding amenities, but I’ll never be staying there again

David Blumberg

Loved this place! We stayed in their upgraded Suite and it was fantastic Well appointed, shower pressure was strong, loved it! Beautiful building Only minus was the loud laser show in the evening which was really annoying from our room…… also the Pool leaves a lot to be desired

The floor of the pool is terrible!!! Rough surface like unfinished concrete People – GET IT RESURFACED SMOOTHLY!! It’s only a bit over 3 feet deep so very shallow for a real pool

Hampus Engstroem

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a hotel This website will compare thousands of booking websites and typically will have prices a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This hotel is the best rated in the area

I have been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few nights you won’t regret itNational Harbor in I would go back to this hotel again in a heartbeat! Let me start out by saying, that I’m usually a person that likes to explore new places, and rarely return to places I’ve already been due to this This hotel would be one I would return to- Absolutely beautiful Well kept building and grounds, lots of activities to explore and view I love that there was shopping with in the hotel, a great marketplace amazing Super clean and wonderful staff This is probably one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever see the glass elevator is nice the view is breathtaking the rooms were very nice and had lots of space 👍 The people that work here are exceptional, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful They led us in all the right directions, and front desk was very nice 😊

Bonnie Mallory

This will be a mixed review The hotel two queen beds and room was very large and liked having the small kitchen type area With a couch, chair and end tables and coffee table, with the two queens was very nice

The bathroom didn’t have a door separating the preparation room from the rest of the bedroom area, this would have made it easier to get dressed without disturbing others sleeping In the morning, got up to use the work out area and there were only two towels and the workout area needed a thorough wipe down There were sweat marks on the equipment I went and informed front desk twice that towels were needed and the next day they still weren’t there; and the women working out said they had to go to the front desk to get towels and the old towels from yesterday were still there I again informed the front desk of the missing towels I left that day so I don’t know if the area was every wiped down or towels finally delivered As for the breakfast, they definitely watered it down too much Both days the oatmeal was more like soup I tried one day but just couldn’t do it the second day There was just too much water and using plastic spoons, it was hopeless As for the eggs, they were tasteless and again I think they “watered” down these too with something that was just too much I didn’t try the meat, but it looked fine And they had waffles which ran out of strawberry flavored mix and regular constantly The cereals were very boring, no sugar cereals, only the cheapest ones supplied They did have muffins, toast and bagels available and juice and milk Someone spilled their food on the floor and I mentioned to front desk, they picked it up but did not clean the floor The next day a liquid was on the floor and that also was not cleaned up Not pleased with the selection or the hotel in general and have stayed at many Hampton Inns A little more care in cleaning would be better

Spencer Berry

When I reserved to stay here, I really had low expectations due to the location near Loop I495 The hotel far exceeded my expectations and we had a great stay Parking was kind of congested, but we found spot close enough to the entrance

Our room was very nice and spacious The only knock of the room was the location of the TV, which faced a wall and the bathroom areahowever, it swiveled so that wasn’t a deal breaker The best surprise was the breakfast buffet 😋 We were treated to cheesy eggs, sausage and self serve Waffles (regular and blue berry) our first morning, and the next day was eggs, link sausage, fried potatoes and self serve Waffles (regular and chocolate) There was also plenty of coffee, juices, and other items available They also had a very large dining area which made finding a table and comfortable seating very easyThe location was perfect for access to the highways and very close to the subway stations and surrounding restaurants It was also only minutes away from the airport, so it made arriving to our departing flight very easy We would definitely stay here again when we travel to the DC/Virginia/Maryland area for a future visit

Steve Van Dyke

This is a mixed reviewStaff can make and break hotels Everyone I interacted with was polite and wanted to make things better

I appreciate that and I complement the staff for trying every time I brought concerns to them I saw several times the front desk staff dealing with situations with guests that could have spiraled out of control, but were handled with good grace and attitudeWith that, we had room maintenance issues First night we had a grinding noise from the a/c that caused a sleepless night We reported this and it was looked at, but not resolved We reported it again, and the a/c was replaced We also had water backup issues in both the tub and the sink, which we reported, but was not resolved I’ve never in almost 20 years had to report maintenance issues every day of my stayOtherwise, the amenities and location were great We enjoyed the outdoor pool, and the breakfast area was busy but well stocked and good- Edit -The general manager reply below indicated there was a private communication to me, and called me by the incorrect name No one from Hilton or the general manager to this point have reached out to me, and I have not been offered any compensation- Edit #2 -Hilton indicated that the GM had reached out to me and that has not happened to date I have left 2 voicemails to the general manager with no callback- Edit #3 -GM finally reached out and offered a credit Still haven’t seen this on my statement yet- Edit #4 -Finally received a credit on my account Hilton also reached out to me as well for the amount of time that it took me to resolve this

It was a bit overrated They charge for EVERYTHING, and really you can’t tell why For a Spa the TOWELS in the room were rough, the beds are NOT Queens they are Doubles, they only have double beds at the elevator and in adjoining rooms, I have request for neither and could not be accommodated

There were some staff that were very helpful and provided extras when asked, but for what we were paying we really shouldn’t have had to ask for enough towels etcThe location is great especially if weather it goodIf you Valet, look behind you if you don’t see him, they sitting in their car? (crazy) but they were able to get car to you when neededThe BEST part was the restaurant that is connected We did dinner thereTOP NOTCH, PRICEY BUT I WILL SAY WORTH IT The Mussels and the pastayummy David was the best waiter ever and we did see the value thereA friend recommended this place and he admitting stayed there years ago, he loved itbut when we told him our experiences, he said obviously they had changed management or ownershipWe even heard them charging a person for Early check in, the person walked up and said she was there, if room was available great, but if not she just wanted to leave info at desk for when ready, she was in a conference there the girl proceeded to check her in, says room is available and then addsthat will be 4500 early check in the guest was like wait, what, I said I would waitit’s crazy sneaky stuff like that, that really not goodOh and the Happy Hour wineis Woodbridgecome on give me something for the 2500 FEE you’ve tacked on

This review would have had more stars but upon check in the glasses in the room were very dirty Additionally when my boyfriend woke up the next morning we found a used condom by the side of the bed Totally unacceptable

The operations manager did call to explain how this is not up to standard etc which I did appreciate but just sucks It was my birthday and not how I wanted to spend the day Ended up checking out Unfortunate situation If you stay here please check the cleanliness of your rooms Front desk staff was very nice and pleasant Wish I had a better overall experience

I would not recommend staying here The staff treated us like they were doing us a favor and yet they don’t offer anything here The pool is closed

The valet is a joke but charges $49 a day There is no hospitality or warmth here The bar is supposed to close at 11, but they turned us away at 10:40 We then called and asked the front desk for a bottle opener and the rude staff person was obnoxious, arrogant, off putting and refused to help us out Instead he hung the phone up on us Never got the bottle opener Never got an apology for the awful service The GM was apparently on site and was made aware of our concerns and never once reached out Don’t stay here People wonder why robots are replacing them This stay would have been better if they had robots serving us

Young Juhn

Location and quality of the hotel was good But service was not much I requested early check-in and I do understand due to large events, rooms were not available but font desk staff communicated not just me but to all others like is customers’ fault asking for early check-in

Very disappointed staff training on customer service It damages the band value of The Westine

I have to say that the front staff is very helpful and professional My original room was nice, updates bathroom and very clean I had a issue with the TV since it didn’t work at all

Matt the attendant on duty came and checked it out, once he noticed that the TV needed to have a maintenance call, he switched my room without issues, double checked to make sure all amenities were in working order and then delivered the new room keys to me My second room was the same from the first I was right by the elevator, but did t hear a thing, seems like the room are well insulated Bed was comfortable and the amenities were in point I’ll be here again for my next work trip, glad to know there is a great staff here

Samantha Oney

The rooms are comfy and stylish and the hotel was nice and clean Though we were disappointed that the pool was closed and the shuttle wasn’t running But the staff were all very helpful

The breakfast bar was especially delicious with lots of choices, all kept fully stocked and fresh by Miss Debora She was so kind and friendly and very helpful She made sure to chat with everyone and make sure we all had what we needed It was a great way to start the day

Great hotel and amazing staff We stayed here for 2 weeks The hotel staff really cared, were so friendly, and very helpful

The restaurant has a great menu and the sushi chefs were superb The pool was very nice, and the gym had everything a person needs The hotel beds were very comfortable The staff that worked at the hotel marketplace were always so nice and friendly I highly recommend this hotel

Jasmine Hanonu

This is a beautiful hotel with amazing views and staff Price is very competitive The staff were very kind and welcoming

I only stayed one night, I checked in around 5pm and left at 8 the next morning, so because of my time restraints I chose not to go directly to staff to see if they could make things right The bathroom was not properly cleaned The sink had hair from a previous shave, and I had a towel that didn’t seem clean either We had a chaise in the room, but it had some stains on it I am hoping this was just a fluke, because I would love to stay again They also charge $17 for breakfast, but we left early to grab breakfast elsewhere If it were for the disappointment with cleanliness,this would have been an easy 5 star review

Tali Norby

It’s such a beautiful hotel with wonderful amenities, however, I have never had such terrible customer service When I first checked in, the receptionist was actually wonderful Checked in, went to my room, went to bed

I was then woken up at 5:30 am to the phone ringing I didn’t answer It rang a second time Still just waking up so I didn’t answer it in time Went back to bed Someone then started knocking on my door, yelling in my room saying “have you checked in?” Mind you, it is 5:30 am and I checked in the previous day at 4 pm for two nights I answer the door and the guy writes my name down and says I wasn’t reserved? So he took my name and said he’ll take care of it I go back to bed and my phone rings AGAIN and I answer it and no one is on the other end Then it rings YET AGAIN and I answer angrily, and they say “do you have a reservation?” To which I said my name and said I will head to the lobby I hang up and they called…again I didn’t answer and went straight to the front desk The receptionist then said “the last receptionist didn’t check you on all the way but I found your reservation and figured it out” and proceeded to give me a voucher for free breakfast For only that morning That I ultimately missed because I was woken up at 5:30 am and it took me a couple hours to fall back asleep after that No other explanation, and no other way to make it right in my eyes So so disappointed

My husband and I stayed here after a concert at Nationals Park You can’t beat the location if that’s your destination, BTW We’ve stayed at a lot of hotels in the Hilton group over the years, and this is easily the nicest Hampton Inn we’ve ever visited

The room was beautiful, and very comfotable and clean The use of space is smart and interesting We had tons of towels, and plenty of super hot water The staff was great– we were able to check in early despite the intense rush Breakfast was pretty standard for Hampton Inn offerings, but it was well done, with plenty of gluten free options for me Obviously the hotel is working with space constraints when it comes to parking and seating in the lobby for breakfast– but it’s in the middle of the city, what can you expect? We were able to find on street parking directly across the street from the lobby, and it ended up being more affordable than valet service All in all, this was an excellent experience and we enjoyed it very much

Serene Says

Better than I expected Rooms were spacious and clean Get a room with the stadium view

Excellent views! Quiet atmosphere and cozy feel Staff was all friendly and welcomingBreakfast was average, plentiful Parking was $55/night plus tax with valet only There’s a lot right across the street that was MUCH cheaper and very accessible Use it! Pic of the parking lot from my floor is attached to this review The rooftop bar and grille were only worth visiting if you want to take in the nice views and chill atmosphere The food was HORRIBLE It was like eating microwaved elementary school lunchables! The drinks were extremely watered down There are plenty of restaurants right next to the hotel to eat at Don’t waste your time or money there The restaurant is the sole reason I gave this location 4 stars

Eugene Mosley

This place is a wonderful location The Customer Service at the Front Desk were so Kind & Helpful Especially Neutral & the other Lady that was working doing my check in & out! I apologize for not remembering her Name🤯

So Caring & HelpfulThe Guy who was the Sunday morning as I checked out was a 3 out of 10 He’s disposition was very unprofessional! I asked about retrieving our cars from valet and his tone was as if I didn’t understand what he was saying I didn’t like him and hope to never have to deal again at any Hilton property!Thanks again Hilton for an Amazing Stay💎

I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying at the National Harbor Check-in was a breeze, thanks to Kimberly! She made me and my family feel so comfortable and welcomed Kimberly has a angelic personality

She kept a big, pretty smile on her face every time we entered and exited the hotel She was so nice and I hope her manager reads this review so that he/she can provide her with a raise She is deserves it! The room was spotless, very clean and inviting We slept well in the comfortable beds, the sofa bed mattress was even comfortable! The host at the hotel did not hesitate to provide service when needed They were “johnny on the spot” We also enjoyed the delicious breakfast The only thing missing at the hotel is a pool My great niece was anticipating upon arrival the pool She is currently taking swimming lessons and was so eager to show me her moves!In closing, the Hyatt Place National Harbor was a 5 star experience for me and my family

Shanna Langhorne

We enjoyed our stay at the Hyatt National Harbour this weekend Loved that they have microwaves on every floor by the ice machine The breakfast was delicious and better than expected

The rooms are clean and comfortable The only con is our room wasn’t cleaned during our stay Overall we had a great experience and will definitely be back

Michele P

Came for casino experience only as part of a birthday getaway The GPS directions were a little weird but got us there Valet parking was prompt & only steps away from the casino entrance

We were carded & then on our way The atmosphere was lively for early Friday evening, drinks were plentiful, staff was pleasant & helpful, bathrooms were spotless My girlfriend plays the tables, blackjack & war, while I hit the slots & then joined her later for a $25 minimum war table The slots were stingy but I managed to hit enough to break even The tables were about the same, but eventually hit a streak at war & walked away several hundred on the plus side Some of the dealers seemed new, but no issues Masks were optional & social distancing wasn’t observed I was thrilled to find this casino is smoke-free! I would return here for sure

Jamila Abdulkadir

This is where I come to when I wanna feel luxurious! 😝 It’s a great spot to spend the day with family Lots of nice restaurants and bars at night 🍹🍸I really like the decorative themes they have close to the Casino 🎰 area and next to one of my favorite restaurants, Ginger

🍲There’s also lots of outdoor space to just enjoy the view of the national harbor area 🎡

Christina Grimes

So I can only speak on the Casino and the hotel lobby Security was pleasant upon entering I love a casino with a signature scent in the air

The Casino is pretty large with a nice variety of machines I only wish I saw more drink servers, I sat in a section for at least 30 minutes and did not see a serverThe lobby was beautiful, I enjoyed the installation Will definitely come back to play and hopefully stay next time
