When it comes to planning a family vacation, it’s important to make sure that everyone is going to have fun–not just the kids, but mom and dad too! Gaylord National Resort Summer Of More is a celebration for the entire family that runs through Labor Day. Overnight guests who purchase this package can enjoy extended vacations via early check in and late check out and are also granted free parking.
Following the $64 million renovation, the rooms have been totally re-designed and have details that compliment DC history. If you look closely, you’ll even find pennies incorporated into the artwork. The beautiful color pallet focuses on hues of blue representing the waterfront location on the Potomac River, and are complemented with gold and yellow touches reflecting the sunsets we get to enjoy each.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite with a king-size bed and a view of the atrium. The living room has comfortable sofas and Smart TVs for your ultimate relaxation.
When you are ready to have some fun—get your bathing suits and head to the pool. After we played in the splash pad, swimming in the Junior-Olympic sized swimming, or lounging on the deck Bonvoy Members can use their app to order lunch from the Marketplace.
Take a ride on The Capital Wheel!
The Capital Wheel is just a short walk away from the Gaylord National. Head northwest out of the hotel, then turn lepton onto St. George Boulevard. Turn left towards the waterfront, and you will arrive at the wheel!
The Flight Deck is an open-air lounge at the top of the ramp to The Capital Wheel to begin your experience with a refreshment that you can take directly to the ride on the platform.
The National Harbor Waterfront destination is full of shopping, public art, amazing restaurants, and the iconic waterfront. Only a boat ride away from the nation’s capital, the National Harbor is a premier destination for both locals and tourists looking for a unique environment and lively activities.
