Residence Inn National Harbor
From the moment we arrived at the Residence Inn National Harbor we felt like we were home. The front desk staff greeted us with a smile and were eager to help us, explaining where to park and were to visit on our stay at the National Harbor. The kids received activity books during check in which is perfect to keep them busy while parents unpack and organize the room.
We had a 1 bedroom suite which was roomy enough for a family of 4. My husband and I had a king size extremely comfortable bed and the kids shared a sleeper couch, which they said was comfortable. I loved that we had a full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove, and microwave in the room We could store our leftovers and heat items up when the kids were hungry. We also had wonderful view of the Potomac River from our room.
Each morning complimentary breakfast was served in a room off of the lobby. This is great for families. You save money and don't have to worry about finding a place to eat every morning while away. The kids loved the make your own waffle station and the assortment of toppings available. The staff was helpful, making sure each guest had everything that they need during their stay. I enjoyed the fact that coffee and hot water for tea/ hot chocolate were always available to make in the lobby throughout the day.
I could go on and on about how wonderful the staff was at the Residence Inn National Harbor. They always greeted us with a smile. They would share ideas on what we should do in the area, they even shared their favorite pizza shop when we were craving pizza one night.
Pool/ Fitness Room
The pool was nice and the kids had fun.. They have an indoor pool that is open from 5 pm to 10 pm. The hotel also has a fitness room with a treadmill and other equipment. What I found super convenient was free ear buds to use while working out.
The Residence Inn National Harbor is a great value for families traveling to the National Harbor area. You don't have to go out to eat every meal, you can cook in. It's even great to cook in snacks or leftovers. They even have a grill to cook meals on in their patio area and a fire pit to sit outside and relax after a day of sight seeing. The hotel is close to all the activities in the area and easy to get to.
