I showed up there with a family of 4 and 4 cats for a week while we waited to move into our home The staff is amazing! Everyone who walked in was greeted with a smile at the front desk The breakfast staff was out ensuring tables were cleaned after guests ate and keeping fresh food out

The maintenance crew quickly responded to our AC unit issue The housekeeping staff gave me items to help keep the mess down in our room to a minimum since we had so many animals present Its in a great location with access to a variety of food and shopping options I would recommend anyone visiting the area to stay here (especially if you have pets)

Nicole Parker

Enjoyed staying here The customer service was spot on! Reason for 4 star — while overall the hotel is clean, I had a few stray hairs in my linen and shower walls Hotel is conveniently located near eateries and grocery stores — Chick Fil a and Target are less than 5 minutes away

Love that the pool is indoors Digital check in/out is also a bonus!

Silvio Quezada

I’m an elite member This location was 45 minutes from where I needed to be, however after reading the comments for the hotels in DC, decided to drive a little extra and pray for a good nights sleep at this Holliday Inn in Waldorf

I’m so glad I did! Room was quiet and clean Special thanks to Emanuel at the front desk Prompt, Polite, Professional young man Keep up the good work

We were without electricity at our house for several days We spent one night at this Hampton Inn, and it was by far the best experience we had trying to deal with hotels in the aftermath of the winter snowstorm They were courteous, efficient, and friendly

As odd as I might have thought it to have to include this criteria in my rating – they were the only hotel for which we used a booking site and the hotel actually had the room that we booked, so they are doing *something* better than the other hotels The rooms and common areas were clean and well maintained The beds were comfortable The bathrooms were modern and pleasant They provided the service we needed when we desperately needed it, and they smiled and were extra helpful while they we doing it – which puts them ahead of most of the other hotels we tried to deal with while our power was out Great job We will look here first, next time we need a local room

Rob

Don’t have anything to complain about besides breakfast always running out of eggs Not a huge deal, there was always a lot of people waking up at the same time Rooms were super clean and nice and staff was more than helpful and even open to conversation in the lobby

Convenient to a few restaurants in the area Good for a “passing by” type of stop

Frances Scotton

Love love the white added to the decor(counter etc)

the bathroom is nice and sparklyThe white comforters are luxurious!Also enjoyed the very large wide screen TVI didn’t try the breakfastso I can’t review that

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!

Jennifer Chamberlain

We are Club Wyndham owners at this location

I loved everything except issues with the pool area people were leaving stuff in chairs and then leaving and going back to the rooms or somewhere for hours at a time so that left there no chairs for people that were actually at the pool Especially the Cabana chairs somehow I feel there should be monitored by the facility When we reported it they kind of just acted like there was nothing they could do about it

Anarcho Monk

Right next to some beautiful views, the resort has 4 pools, a game room, from 9am to 10pm as well as a 24-hour gym, spa, and computer room with printer It might not serve breakfast but each room has its own kitchen with fridge, microwave, oven, and sink The best part was the free laundry room

The parking validation was a breeze thanks to customer service

David Levinsky

Great location to enjoy the national harbor area Not too far from Washington DC The facility doesn’t have its own parking, but there’s a parking lot across the street, which the timeshare acts as the intermediary

My guest arrived first and instead of asking how long they plan to stay, they assumed they would stay the duration of the reservation and issued them a parking pass for the length of the reservation When they left 2 days shy of the reservation, they were told there is no refund for unused time The lobby and common areas looked nice My room was a 3 bedroom suite with a balcony The room was a decent size, the amenities were a bit antiquated, and the rug was disgusting My grandson, a 15 month old, was with me and the dirt on his feet, daily, was unacceptable Unless Wyndham plans to renovate, I don’t see myself staying there again This is not the first Wyndham timeshare that I stayed at that seriously needs an upgrade It makes me wonder what they do with our maintenance

Michelle Vernon

I should have read reviewsPros: It’s really close to an amazing Thai restaurant and Harris Teeter It’s walkable to the Potomac River and a park

Location is perfect for travelers It has good AC and the bed and pillows are comfy The staff were really friendlyCons: There is no early check-in, so when you get there, there is a line out the door and it takes nearly 30 minutes to check-in One of the elevators was broken, so it took forever to get to the room This hotel also doesn’t have anything included (the free wifi is really slow) Parking is $32 a night, water bottles left in the room aren’t free There is no microwave…NO MICROWAVE The coffee isn’t very good in the room The showers don’t drain well Customer service wasn’t helpful I called multiple times to confirm that the location I stayed at had a pool and both times the person I spoke to verified it did One part of the website also said there was a pool, or I misread…The specific room details said that a pool wasn’t an included amenity but photos of the location and calls to the hotel said otherwise When you call, you apparently don’t get people at the location

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

David Fontana

I have no complaints about the hotel in general other than its thin walls and floors I am a Gold tier IHG member and I normaly get assigned a room on an upper floor and away from elevators because that is my preference on my IGH profile Member page For whatever reason, I was given a room on the second floor right next to the elevator in a hotel that at the time of check in looked to be about 80 vacant

The room I was given was clean and spacious and since I was only there one night for work I didn’t complain However, as I was settling in to get a good night sleep, the people above me checked in and began walking heavily back and forth They must have had a toddler as well because he/she was running non stop a over the room I tried to ignore it and even banged on the ceiling since it was apparent there was no sound proofing between the floors to speak of Nothing stopped these guest and their kid from incessantly walking like elephants above me so I went to the front desk and requested that I be given a new room on the top floor given that I had to sleep well for an important meeting the next morning The girl at the front desk was very nice and switched my room to the 4th floor She even gave a bigger room I guess the moral of the story is if you want to get a good nights sleep at this hotel request a room on the top floor Oh, and check the IHG members preferences before assigning them a room

Laura

Where to start

the first room had stains on the sheets (not sure if they were clean or not but they’re stained), the toilets were stained (maybe hard water – but seems isolated to this hotel only), and the couch was stained – I didn’t notice much after that Second room had blood stains on the sheets, and I left the hotel The woman at the front desk was very nice, and she tried to accommodate me, but there was no way I could sleep there I don’t get it – investing in new sheets, and a water softener seems like such an easy fix for these two obvious recurring problems!?

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 😊

Roxanne Hamrick

The price of the room is what got us to stay here, room was OK However they charged an additional $100 deposit that they mentioned NO WHERE on the website and the desk clerk claimed it would go away once they checked our room upon check out It’s been 3 days and the charge is STILL on my friends account

If we had an extra 100 bucks to throw around we wouldn’t have looked for a cheaper hotel Not everyone can just wait days and days to get that money back these days Especially when our room was left in perfect condition Doubtful we will stay again Even the VERY nice hotels in the harbor don’t charge 100 deposit 🙄

I Smith

I plan on staying here again when next in the area This hotel stay was great for a number of reasons The desk attendants were polite, the room was very clean, and the breakfast was exactly what I needed to get me going on the morning with good protein options

While the hotel is somewhat worn, it is well maintained and clean My only complaint with the facility is that all entry doors are not useable from the outside except for the lobby entrance This hotel has a lot going for it and only minor “issues” that would not bump this from the top of my list of places to stay in the area

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

susie knouse

Stayed at this location for almost a week Wished they would of extended my stay but that didn’t happen The person that made my stay enjoyable was Deborah

Mornings were worth getting up early for breakfast She is such a kind warm caring person She was always making breakfast special Behind her mask was a smile Greeted everyone and made sure we all started our day with a full tummy and a word of encouragement Thank you so much for all your hard work She is a asset to your hotel

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

My husband and I recently stayed a night to celebrate our wedding night The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and sanitized but i was extremely shocked by the lack of amenities at this hotel There was no microwave in the room

There was no room service No breakfast the next morning They did not validate parking I think I was expecting a little more from a hotel of such quality It was nice for a quick staycation but i probably won’t stay here again

Marcus Douglas

Good hotel within walking distance of everything in National Harbor area It’s clean, the prices are decent, and the bar and breakfast are goodThe design of the room was a bit ‘industrial’ for my taste – very bare bones, lots of hard surfaces, not very inviting

But the bed was soft and ultimately got the job doneDuring the week I stayed, only one elevator was working and it was incredibly slow Also, on Friday night some guests were partying in the hallways all night, until 4am/5am

Steve Hudson

Great hotel Beds were excellent! Wonderful pillows Central location, views and cold air conditioning

A little disappointed that you had to pay $24 a day for a parking garage and that breakfast was not included Easy walking distance to shopping, dinner, waterfront views Overall, would definitely recommend them as consideration for a place to stay

Location was perfect for a family vacation to DC Two blocks from the Metro (blue line) and about a mile from the waterfront in Old Town So many great restaurants nearby and fun shopping

They do have a breakfast that we didn’t try ($15/person) but if you are going to DC, eat at the hotel your first day It’s just easier until you get your bearings They don’t clean the rooms every day, which is fine, but you do have to be proactive about asking for towels and to get the trash emptied if you want that Their convenience store was woefully understocked so even though they have guest laundry on the second floor, I couldn’t use it because I couldn’t get soap Kind of a bummer The staff is very friendly and helpful Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting DC Much cheaper than a DC hotel and you get to spend the evenings in Old Town Alexandria every night

Freespiriting xo.

I just wanted to first and foremost give the manager Joe a shout out!! There was an issue with a double charge for the room I booked, and this man went above and beyond to get it fixed and to show how apologetic he was that it happened It’s rare to come across employees/managers like him, and I just wanted him and the company know that he’s great and truly appreciated Because of you Joe whenever I’m in town, I’ll be staying here at this Hilton

Also, the rooms were clean and breakfast was great The location is perfect as well, it’s right across the street the a train station

The accommodations were nice and what you would expect for a Hilton location My issue was with the billing, service and responsiveness of the manager After paying for my entire stay in advance via the Hilton app I was overcharged by the hotel who should have only charged me for parking

I expected a hold would be placed on my card for incidentals for $150, the hold ended up being $670 No one could explain why the hold was including what I had already paid for my 3 night stay along with the incidental deposit The entire hold finally released 5 days later but now I’ve been charged nearly $300 which is no where near what parking actually cost me I was told that this would be handled by the location manager on July 3rd and I would get a call from the manager I have yet to hear from anyone from the location nor have the charges been corrected Needless to say I will never stay at this location again I am also disappointed with Hilton Customer Care for their lack of support in this situation

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

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

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
