Yah it could be noisy on weekends or other busy times, there's alot going on around there. But that is why you go. If you want peace and quiet go to the country. Great spot for couples weekend. Great views of Harbor.

My children and I stayed at this hotel over the past weekend during a dance convention being held at the Gaylord. We opted for this hotel, as I knew the Gaylord would be extremely hectic. This hotel was very modern and up to date. The staff was super friendly, and always checking to see if you needed anything. The rooms...

If the rates were more reasonable, this hotel brand might be my new favorite. The rooms are a little on the small side but very comfortable and ergonomically designed. Fast internet and great TV on demand. The lobby is stylish and the continental breakfast was one of the best I have had in the US.

I selected this property because it reminded me of a European location that we stayed in Paris. Unfortunately the style and charm were drowned out by the thin walls and partying young people in the room next door to us. Walls to thin, management unwilling to do anything. Not letting us get refund to leave early (10pm on saturday night)....

I recently attended a training meeting in the DC area and stayed at the AC Hotel at National Harbor. I found the hotel to be exceptionally clean.

The rooms are OK and the location is very good, but management is rude. I recommend the Westin or the Gaylord. One thing I really appreciated was the Netflix connectivity offered with the TVs. Otherwise, not the best hotel in National Harbor.

Hotel is very nice and super clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. The only complaint is that the Valet is really slow. It took me 40 minutes to get my car (Not during check out rush). The Valets were super nice and everything else was wonderful. I will stay there again for sure!

Nice clean hotel. Staff very friendly. European breakfast, so don't expect pancakes and waffles like Hampton, or holiday inns, but still good. Great location. We had plenty of food options and places to check out in walking distance.

My family spent 3 days in the AC Marriott on the National Harbor, during the 2016 holiday season.
