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. We had a great stay from the staff being very accommodating to the coziness of our room over looking the Potomac, the view was beautiful! The hotel has a very modern feel, very nice lobby area and bar, no carpet in the...

It was OK. I have stayed in a Days Inn just as nice. For $200 to stay less than 24 hours, not worth it. And you have to pay for breakfast too? $14 for a continental breakfast? Not worth it. Beds were super comfortable! The TV allows you to log into your personal Netflix so you don't have to pay...

This is a nice hotel with a friendly staff, clean albeit small rooms. Breakfast is overpriced - but this is DC. Shower never got HOT - informed front desk staff, never resolved issue. Water was basically 'not cold' couldn't really even call it warm. Only response from Front Desk was "we haven't had any other complaints". Not a fun stay...

A nice European style hotel with a very friendly staff who extends there hospitality. The location was great and surrounded by shops and restaurants on the National Harbor. Valet parking was $35 a day. Our only disappointment was the size of the rooms. Not ideal if you prefer a spacious layout or if small spaces make you feel a little...

In our experience AC Hotel by Marriott in National Harbor is an excellent choice - at the center and within walking distance of everything at National Harbor.
