Rated 4 out of 5 by aloft stay No iron in the room. Sliding door of the bathroom didnt work properly August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best folks in town The location is great and consistent with the experience at other Alofts. Staff members are particularly helpful and consistently above average. July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vibrant simplicity (The conference center was nearby, not on-site.) Aloft definitely made an impression on me. Most hotels to me are just a bed, a closet, a desk and a chair. Aloft (National Harbor, DC/MD) has a theme of clean, colorful straight lines and simplicity. The 6th floor room I had looked out at the Wilson Bridge and into Alexandria. (A room on a lower floor or facing the opposite direction might not have been able to see the water.) The staff was very helpful with any concern that I had (e.g. a lamp was replaced the day it was reported, with an immediate offer of an alternative room). The off-season price was competitive. I will definitely take note on future trips to see whether an Aloft is in the area. January 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great place, but thin walls! I love this hotel and the location in DC. The beds were super comfy, too. The only issue is that the walls seem to be pretty thin, and we were able to hear all hallway & outside noise, so that did pose a problem in the middle of the night when people were talking in the hall and when a motorcycle revved its engine outside the hotel. Otherwise, the service was excellent, and again, the hotel was beautiful and comfortable! July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The view and the comfort I loved... the height of the celling, the two large Windows, the view on the street... July 31, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!! VERY MISLEADING!! THIS IS NOT A FULL SERVICE HOTEL!! HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!! THIS IS NOT A FULL SERVICE HOTEL!!! There was NO ROOM SERVICE, not even a kitchen for the bar!! Just a backroom to heat up frozen-ready hot foods. The room decor is depressing!! Blue-grayish walls!! It has a jail feel to it! Not so much as a picture on the walls and we stayed in two separate rooms just to see if we would have a different experience on the last night - NOT! Was forced to go out and get breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All the nearby restaurants close at 11pm, so a late weekend dinner is basically out of the question. We had to call a nearby carryout. Did I mention the dull and depressing decor!! It looks like cheap, Ikea knock-off furniture!! SO DISAPPOINTING!!! March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Stay at ALOFT - National Harbor Our stay at the ALOFT National Harbor was EXCELLENT, and I have already recommended the hotel to two friends planning their trips to the DC area. The staff was great. Their attention to detail regarding our needs and specifics for first time visitors to DC was invaluable. We had limited time to see all that we wanted and the ALOFT staff was key in our accomplishing all we wished for. The room as great. It felt very much like a comfortable condominium. We felt at home. Great views, and very contemporary amenities. The gym was great, and the breakfast food was ideal. The staff recommendation for surrounding restaurants and bars were great. We truly enjoyed every facet of our stay, and we WILL return soon. March 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hotel has seen better days Stayed for 5 days and not once was the carpet vacuumed or the sink washed out. Shower stall had black guck In the corners. Toilet paper was not replaced. Room was not cleaned in a timely fashion. Returned back to room on one particular day at 3:30 and room was untouched by staff. Toiletry items not replaced daily, and we had to request face, hand, and body towels on a regular basis, even though soiled towels were placed on the floor. July 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great location This was our second stay at the Aloft National Harbor for our bi-annual girls trip. We love staying at this hotel because of its location and staff. There are many great restaurants and shops and some great bars with good entertainment for the night life, all within walking distance. There is also a free shuttle that will take you to the closest Metro station where you can hop on the train with stops/transfers to many of the sites Washington DC is known for. As for the staff at the Aloft, they are amazing. They are always friendly and willing to assist with any questions you may have. Marvin, especially, is very personable and will give you great recommendations for restaurants based on what your taste is. March 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not again! It was not an experience. Underwhelming by just walking in the lobby. Given incorrect reservation. I had to return back to the front desk to get what I paid for. The lotion (tube) in the bath area was nearly empty meaning it was leftover from a previous guest. YUK! I felt unsafe in the lobby with persons loitering in the area. We had a drink in the bar but departed very soon due to others in the surrounding area (homeless as noted by clothing and smell and and obviously under the influence of some type of substance).Hotel needs a good "quality" manager and heightened security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Contemporary, Fun & Definitely Family Friendly I loved this hotel. We visited the National Harbor twice within a one week period. First we stayed at the Westin and then we stayed at the Aloft. The Aloft was just so wonderful and fun. The staff was exceptional, helpful in planning sightseeing and in mapping out the best public transportation routes. They went out of their way to accommodate us - even locating a left being stuffed animal hours after check out.I loved the re-fuel snack and breakfast area - convenient and healthy choices and great tasting as well. Plus free coffee until 10am. May 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Location-Great Staff Not only is the location excellent for outside of the city travel the staff is couteous and attentive. Great 3 day stay. July 25, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Room was disappointing, We were very disappointed with the room overall. The Heating/AC unit was very loud when running, and no way to leave the fan running to drown out the outside noise of other rooms. The bed was ok except for the fact the bedsheets would not stay in place, so we were sleeping on the matress. There were no luggage carts available on check-in, and it didn't seem they were busy. Had to park in seperate garage and make two trips to get luggage into room., luckly it wasn't raining or it would have gotten wet. June 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by night front desk bad...Morning front desk nice We did our reservation by phone with spg, the lady who attend us was rude and ask me to spell names and address when I have a member number an all the information was there.When we arive to the hotel. ..they told us that they don't have a reservation and even when we have a printed confirmation thay told us that we have to wait at least for 10 minutes.We left for an hojr and when we came back we have to wait for half more hour until they gave us a room with bad attitude no apologies and It looked like it was our fault.After that we had more bad experiences...but is too lon June 29, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed Stay So Left Early I liked the modern furniture and atmosphere of the hotel. The room itself was very comfy but once it was time for bed I could not fall asleep due to all of the LED lights (some blinking some not) from the phone, smoke detector, etc., the white light shining thru the sides of the pull-down curtains, and music playing outside my room/hotel at 3AM. Why was the bed pointed toward the 2 large windows anyway? And the fact that the price did not include overnight parking means the hotel stay was over priced and over rated! I will not stay at the Aloft at National Harbor again. December 14, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Location but the Logistics are terrible the ALoft is uniquely placed on the National Mall but the logistics are terrible. there is no valet or curb side service to drop your bags off at...parking is at a premium and the check in lobby is on the second floor. there is no where to return the room key once you leave the parking garage and be prepared to hoof your bags up and down stairs if you park on the wrong side of the garage July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Girls getaway paradise I had an amazing stay at the aloft hotel. It has a very chic and retro feel. The bar had amazing drinks and they snack pantry was very convenient! I had a rude encounter with one of the staff members, this issue was taken care of in an AMAZING way. Ihab Kherati, Patrick, Keyri, and Katrina are absolutely FANTASTIC!!! My room was very clean & spacious the staff was very friendly and eager to help my & my best friends needs! This hotel added greatly to my weekend experience! I will definitely be back at the ALOFT for my future trips while enjoying National Harbor! March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hotel and Excellent Location The Aloft National Harbor is in the best location outside Washington, DC. It has a Megatron TV across the street with free movies and people exercise on TV. The nearby restaurants are fabulous and within walking distance. There is a free shuttle to the Metro Station to get around the D.C. area. The area is safe and parking has a nominal fee and is in a garage. The rooms have beautiful views of the harbor and Ferris wheel. The hotel has a nice indoor pool and a pool table. Very pet friendly hotel! June 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great experience! I was looking for a place that would accommodate a Girls' Night Out, and the Aloft King Suite was exactly what I was looking for! The accommodations in that suite, with the balcony and the view, which overlooked the most central point of the National Harbor (Potomac River, main stage, and busy intersection for people watching), far surpass anything one might imagine! I was extremely pleased that that suite perfectly made my Girls' Night Out! June 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent service, amenities and location Instant gratification was my experience at the Aloft. I was greeted by very friendly staff that continued to make me feel comfortable, and at home during my stay. The hotel amenities are excellent, from the comfort of your room to the great view, is all enough to keep you in. However, if going out is on your agenda, then you can't beat the location of the Aloft; it's in the center of all the fun at the Harbor. I recommend this hotel to anyone coming to the Harbor or nearby area! June 15, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor staff service Platinum guest for the past 7 or 8 years. Staff did not provide a copy of statement as requested via email. Called hotel and was put on hold for 10 minutes until I made a second request. Still no copy of statement. And no, it's not blocked by some spam filter. Will have to call and make my request yet again. I expect better customer service than what has been provided. Other than that, hotel is a typical aloft property. June 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Genuinely friendly staff My wife and I had a rare overnight fun trip to National Harbor planned, and lucked into finding the Aloft Hotel there. There were lots of things we enjoyed about our stay. The room was great, comfortable, with a great view. But the highlight was the genuine friendliness and accomodation provided by the front desk staffperson who we think was named Marvin. He treated us great throughout our brief stay, and even moved us up to the top floor for a better view after we had already checked in. It is always amazing how much a smile and greeting make a difference. January 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This hotel has a great location- Though I prefer traditional layouts and furniture, It was an interesting experience. Missed having a formal dresser but the bed was comfortable. The single sink is fine for one occupant but not suited for two, especially when the roommate is not family.Touch of coffe was a great day starter. Need a microwave and on-site laundry provisions. View from the 01 side of the hotel was excellent. July 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The hotel has a beautiful view, which enhances the experience I plan to return to this beautiful and sexy hotel. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun location - nicest staff suggest serving real food instead of the packaged eggs , bacon etc. that was a bummer. if building code allows, suggest an 'egg station'. 3 small pans -heated with propane grills would add some excitement. still would only need 1 cookish and a temp. laborer. waffles and pan cakes could be nuked! tell about parkin charges on line. hey we had a great stay and traded out the food coupon for a trip to your grocery area, only cause i don't eat space food. anyway - the staff, room,location etc. was fun. had aloft of laughs - with the staff.
