The Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center is a huge resort in Maryland. I stayed there for a weekend for a friends birthday and was extremely impressed by this resort right in National Harbor, Maryland. Walking out to our balcony and overlooking the interior of the Gaylord and looking out into the water was beautiful. Only the pictures below can really explain. The room honestly wasn’t the most impressive but the view made up for it in my opinion. I wasn’t able to eat at the restaurants or use all of their amenities due to lack of time but I took a walk around and everything looked really nice. The indoor and outdoor pool, jacuzzi and lounge area was very relaxing after a night of partying. I also took a walk out to the boating dock and relaxed, which to me was one of the highlights. The Gaylord gives you a vacation feel, almost like you’re far away somewhere and not in Maryland. That’s what I liked the most about it. So if you need a vacation but don’t want to go far, the Gaylord is perfect.
