Guests at this 2,000-room larger-than-life resort can dine, shop, get pampered, and even go clubbing without ever leaving the property, which anchors the National Harbor waterfront, and with about a 25-minute ride to the National Mall, it provides an alternative if you're D.C.-bound and don't mind commuting. Room balconies opening onto the 220-foot-high glass atrium are a good place to watch the nightly dancing fountain show in the massive lobby below. An ice sculpture
show is hosted here every winter. A resort fee of $19.08/day is levied; it includes Wi-Fi, access to the fitness center and pool, unlimited calls within the U.S., and daily newspaper delivery.
