Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD

Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD
Washington DC Convention Centers - Gaylord National Hotel

The Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center, situated right on the historic Potomac River, just 8 miles outside of Washington D.C., fulfills all the promise of a Gaylord facility. The facility is enormous, 20-stories tall, nearly 2.5 MILLION square feet, and all enclosed under one computer-controlled glass roof! This is the ultimate Washington DC Convention Center, their motto, "Everything in one place," is a lot more than a brag (even though it is the fourth largest construction project in the entire world.) You literally don't ever have to leave, and if you slept just one night in each of the hotel rooms under that roof, you'd still take five years to sleep in them all! But bigger is just the beginning. There's a standard of excellence embodied by the Gaylord experience that goes above and beyond, on a grand scale. It's that excellence which makes the Gaylord National a place where both attendees and organizers are thrilled to return to time and time again!

When it comes to Washington D.C. convention centers, no other facility can provide more or better than the Gaylord. Open 365 days a year, the National is able to accommodate as many as 17,000 (yes, thousand) guests, including bedding 8,000 of them overnight! There are 82 meeting rooms, including a 600-seat classroom environment and a 3,600 seat theatre-style meeting hall. Each conference area enjoys a ripping-fast T-3 internet connection, and wifi is available throughout the hotel. Full catering services are provided by the Gaylord's excellent chefs. Food and beverage services can treat your guests to snacks and sandwiches or create a gourmet meal with pastries and chef's favorite desserts! It's really all up to you. The Gaylord staff is there to ensure that you get what you want, and to deliver it all seamlessly and flawlessly. They'll take care of everything, so you don't have to think about it.

Being this close to the nation's capital, it's likely that at least some of your guest will want to explore the history and grandeur. The Gaylord National is very conveniently located, making it easy for you and your attendees to strike out and see the White House, the Lincoln and other national monuments. You don't need to leave the facility, but if you should decide to, you'll find all of D.C. and Alexandria's best waiting for you!

The sheer scope and scale of this magnificent facility makes it unique. That it's located at our nation's capital adds to that. The outstanding service and novel approach, the 20-story tall atriums (which include two-story houses within and under that roof!) All add to the charm. Indoor pool areas, spas, and the rest, the clubs and shopping -- the Gaylord National is a miniature town, with everything you could possibly want or need! Their Meeting staff can even guarantee a total price to control your costs! With such a unique venue and such strong customer service performance, there's really no need to look any further than the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center, no matter what the reason for your gathering!
