This was my first stay at an AC property. I had no expectations other than hoping for my favorite Marriott bed. The entrance is on the ground floor and you take a short elevator or stairs up one floor to check-in, bistro and the bar. The property states they are a 'Euro-style'. Lots of blonde woods, simple sculptures and open...

I have sayed at ac hotels in Spain. So we booked a weekend here. I find the decor calm and the rooms comfortable. The service was everything i expected from Marriott. I loved having fresh crossants for breakfast. The coffee was good, which is something I would not normally say about Marriott coffee.

I visited this hotel over the Thanksgiving weekend 11/25-11/27. I would highly recommended this hotel to anyone. 1. Reasonable price. I was traveling with my family on somewhat of a short notice and wanted to find a place that was not too expensive but still modern, clean and acceptable. This place exceeded my expectations. The room was clean, comfortable and...

Friends and I wanted to eat at a restaurant in this complex, so we stayed at this hotel. Otherwise there really isn't much reason to stay so far out of DC. That said, the hotel was pretty nice, very clean, big rooms, we had a nice view of the water and ferris wheel. Everyone working there was friendly and helpful.

Let me be honest, we're very lucky to travel to some unique places, certainly spoiled. The staff here was nice, the location: central. However, as all marketing people know, the world caters to millennials- they decide what we watch, where we stay, where we eat out (ie Cheesecake Factory) what we listen to (Taylor Swift, Coldplay) and the like. You...

My company sends us to different cities twice a year so I have stayed in my fair share of hotels over the years. This November just a day following the presidential election I checked into the AC hotel in National Harbor. I was greeted and assisted with my luggage immediately. The front desk staff was so amazing, every time I...

Very chick! Great location right in the center of National Harbor! Modern ambiance with lots of views of the town. The hotel offers a delicious European breakfast buffet. Loved the lounge area -in the afternoon they set up a complimentary state of the art espresso/cappuccino area accompanied with a small selection of scrumptious sweet treats! The staff was very friendly....
