This 8th floor condo has a large sliding glass door to a balcony with a view of the Potomac River, Old Town Alexandria and daily gorgeous sunsets. Sitting at our dining table nightly we would take in the view and enjoy the comfortable feel of the apartment. The galley kitchen enabled us to easily prepare meals, and we ate in regularly, while the location in National Harbor allowed us the benefit of great restaurants on both sides of the river as we took the water taxi back and forth to Old Town and up to Georgetown. We parked our car in a designated spot in the secure garage (also where we stored our bike) and daily walked and biked the Harbor paths and got to kayak on the Potomac and ride the new Capitol Wheel. The unit contained all the essentials we needed (we bought our own blender), and the living room, bedroom, bathroom and closet were good sized so we were comfortable. The unit is located at the end of the hall in the southwest corner of the building so there was no hallway or elevator noise. The few residents we met were very nice and friendly and the building manager was gracious and very welcoming.The building is kept in very good shape and there was an online access page that provided updates on Harbor events. There were weekly concerts on the Harbor plaza and we even saw Cirque du Soleil at the Harbor plateau - we found the Harbor to be a fun, lively neighborhood. Weekends were sometimes too noisy for our liking. Kevin was great to work with - easy going. He was available when we needed him - just a phone call away. No hassles - very accommodating. Easy check-in, check out, billing etc. everything was taken care of. We had a great time exploring Wash DC, Baltimore, Annapolis, Mt Vernon etc - all that the Capitol city had to offer - easy access to the highway. We were bummed that we missed the newest addition to the Harbor area - MGM Grand casino, but we promised ourselves to return when they open their doors in 2015. And we would definitely stay in the condo again - the first time was a great experience!
