The address from your web page listed the hotel in National Harbor. As my gps did not list National Harbor it would have been helpful if you included, perhaps in brackets, Oxon Hill/Fort Washington.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MamaK This hotel is trying too hard to be trendy
The Aloft clearly went for look over comfort. The hotel has worked hard on its trendy decor, but the room itself left a lot to be desired. The beds were not comfortable, and the pillows were terrible. The chairs in the room looked cool, but when we sat in them, they were not comfortable. Also, there was NO storage space in the room. The "closet" was just some hangers on the wall in the bathroom area, and there were no drawers to put our clothes - just some baskets.
There were some positives. The in-room safe was nice, and the in-shower shampoo and body wash dispensers were great (good products). We also really liked the balcony off of the lobby, very nice with the outdoor fire. I liked the eco-friendly $5 food voucher for not using housekeeping everyday. However, the voucher just made the breakfast affordable because they were charging $5.50 for just a breakfast sandwich, not including a drink!
Overall, the hotel just seemed to be going for a stark, minimalist approach. The hotel looks a lot better in pictures than in person. The only reason to stay here is the location, which is great.

Bathroom tiles are dark and grey and grout looks dirty. The room was damaged with scuffs and marks on the walls. The staff was mildly interesting in my needs and forgot that I checked out early.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guest234 Hotel has an excellent location
Being centrally located on the National Harbor you can walk to the stores and restaurants, relax on the waterfront and if necessary your room is close enough to return to for a quick break.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, a little slow at times at the desk, but no big deal or huge delay. Location is perfect. Rooms were fine, new and modern. Nothing magical but fine.

The hotel has good features but not people with knowledge to operate it . Why is the air conditioner so loud? There were no bags in the garbage cans, bed was not made up properly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jj72 Not worth the money
I stayed one night at this hotel. The sliding glass door to the toilet/shower, had a shatter spot on it covered with clear tape. Initial room, #732, was a connecting room and could hear the TV in #734 blasting for 2 hours. After the first hour, called the front desk, they sent up security, which did nothing. I waited another half hour, still blaring TV! Called again, Mike, the front desk clerk, and the best part of our stay, offered to move us on the same floor to a junior suite, very nice of him. He delivered the keys along with a $20 voucher for food, breakfast setup needs work! Got to the new room and the toilet was backed up. Called him again, and he said there was no maintenance staff on, so he sent security up with a plunger, I had to plunge the toilet myself! I've never done that, even in a cheap hotel! Plus, the shades on the windows, that cover the entire wall, did not go down all the way, they all stopped with about 3 inches to go. So in the morning, you get sunlight right in your face! Not a good way to wake up. This hotel is not worth the money and ownership and management should be embarrassed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by txvisitor Great Location, but disappointed in Room
The Aloft has a great location in the heart of the National Harbor.
I was a bit disappointed in the hotel room itself though, it was not as nice as the price would indicate.

The beds, for us, were hard as ..... We loved the hotel, but slept tossing and turning, and limped the next day. But a very convenient hotel, and the staff was great.

The staff was great and I felt very comfortable. I am over 50 and felt that it is a hotel better suited to the under 50 set - a place young professionals would love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BIGV9 THE MATRESSES ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!
The only complaint that i would have is that the matress is VERY uncomfortable. A more comfortable bed (such as the Westin has) seriously needs to be looked into.

The hotel was dirty! Hallway carpeting stained, missing smoke detector in room. Buildup on fire extinguishers and elevator doors was gross. Where was the GM???

Rated 3 out of 5 by downtown21230 Showing signs of wear and tear
I have the impression that this hotel gets abused by a rowdy sort of crowd. The hotel is positioned within the heart of National Harbor. The staff is wonderfully pleasant and helpful. Amenities are exactly what you would expect - a sufficient gym, an indoor pool, cool lobby/hotel bar and “in-the-building” restaurant which offers room service. Parking is convenient in an adjacent garage at $11 daily. Despite all of the positive features, the overall experience is blemished by the guests themselves; guests that have little respect for others or the property. I could easily blame the hotel for the poor state of my guest room – the ripped wallpaper, stained rug, broken bed frame and musty smell. I could also blame them for the food on the lobby floor and furniture. But it became obvious after two nights that the staff were working very hard to maintain order and cleanliness. The real culprits were the guests. Just because a hotel looks like you are living a rock-star lifestyle doesn't mean you should trash your room. FYI –rooms with an odd number face the street/harbor; rooms with an even number face the courtyard/parking garage.

Modern accommodations. Nice, but doesn't have all of the amenities of a standard hotel. No kitchen = no room service, something I'm used to when traveling.
