This was a very cool hotel that had a very european feel. The rooms are modern and amemities were great. The breakfast was a traditional european, which is pastries, salamis and assorted sliced cheeses. The bed faced the windows and TV's were hung on the wall. Liked it.

AC was an overflow hotel to the Gaylord Convention Resort, and I was delightfully surprised by my stay. For future conventions, definitely plan to choose the AC, as their staff and amenities really compensate for the walk to the convention. 1) As a gold member, I receive a $10 gift voucher to spend towards purchases, really nice touch. 2) they...

Took a little weekend getaway to National Harbor and chose the AC hotel for our stay, perfect choice! Quiet room with very modern amenities and a great view of the harbor. Staff was super friendly and attentive and took care of our every need. The lobby bar was also great with some excellent cocktails to start and end the evening....

I was here for 2 nights on business trip. My room was on 7th floor. The set up is very interesting. You walked in the first thing you see is the sink and behind that is the toilet and then shower stand. Then, behind all of this (separated by a wall) is the sleeping area. Note that i did not...

Dear wuvemydragon, Thank you for reviewing your stay at our hotel. I am so sorry to read that you were disappointed by the layout of our hotel. Due to the European inspiration of the AC Brand, our guest rooms are on the smaller, or boutique side, and I do apologize if that did not provide you with a comfortable stay....

Great location and very nice hotel. A little on the spendy side but what isn't in this part of the country. There a many places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. Parking is a challenge but if you are ok with $38 a day for valet then no worries.

Stayed all week at this hotel for a conference I was attending at the Gaylord. I prefer this location, it's a short walk to restaurants and the harbor.

I ended up at the AC Hotel as the result of a Priceline Bid. I was really happy with the hotel. The room was modern and spotlessly clean and the bed was super comfortable. The shower was huge and heavenly. (No tub, but I prefer not to have a tub.) There were multiple accessible outlets and each outlet had USB...

I was part of a large group, shifted from our original reservation. Despite that issue, my stay could not have been more pleasant. My room was contemporary, with a fantastic view.
