The Washington, D.C., area’s first “infinity ballroom” is now available for corporate events and other functions at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, a Smart Stars winner for 2017. The new 16,000-square-foot venue affords impressive, column-free, panoramic views of the Potomac River from its floor-to-ceiling windows.

The contemporary, riverfront ballroom in National Harbor, Maryland, is designed to provide event-goers with a private venue outside of Gaylord National’s main hub of meeting space.

The new ballroom has two outdoor terraces, also with unobstructed water views, which add more than 10,000 sq. ft. of additional space and the option of hosting functions that are both indoor and outdoor.

When it comes to food, planners can choose from new, interactive menu experiences designed around fresh, local fare with a focus on sustainability. Gaylord National’s executive chef curated themed menus that include Penang and Malaysian, Cuban, Southern Barbeque and Chesapeake Bay flavors—all of which offer expert culinarians and mixologists to assist attendees in creating their own dining experience.

With the addition of RiverView Ballroom, Gaylord National now offers five ballrooms and more than 600,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor flexible meeting space, keeping the AAA Four Diamond property the largest nongaming resort and convention center on the East Coast.

Gaylord National, operated by Marriott International, is located eight miles from Washington, D.C. It features a signature, 19-story glass atrium, nearly 2,000 guest rooms, a full-service spa, indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and unique restaurants and shops. The resort was honored as a Smart Star 2017 award winner by the readers of Smart Meetings for Best Convention Hotel.
