The dining experience is the best thing to brag about here. The particular room I was given was less than desirable. Despite the room, the food was great, meeting rooms were really nice, and the staff which seemed to be a mix of really young and old were excellent. Confusing layout as far as navigating around and it felt like...

I stayed at The National Conference Center for 10 days in January 2017 while attending training classes for my employer. Having previously worked in the hospitality industry as a meeting planner, I did not expect too much from this property that is used exclusively as a conference center. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the venue and especially...

I was at the Conference Center for our annual quilting retreat (we've actually added a second date over the past few years). We have such a beautiful, light-filled room, with everything we need, so that we can concentrate on our projects. The dining set-up is fantastic, with ample hours for breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, and a wonderful selection of...

They fed us very very well. You had control of your room. Clean ...quiet.. awesome atmosphere. I would go there again! Was there for work, had no choice. but I was very pleased with my stay. Over fed, and had time to play. Very professional there.

Thank you jbelkota, for your 5 star review on TripAdvisor. We are delighted that you get what we are all about: Great food, quiet and comfortable setting and small rooms so that guests socialize and move outside of their comfort zone. Thank you again.

This place is very quiet, away from main city, nice greenery around. The rooms inside hotel are small but enough for need of a person. Hotel doesn't provide any room service. The place is huge in area and locating your room, restaurant is a fun. First two days everyone in my group used to struggle to locate room, restaurant, but...

Dear Chanvish005. Thank you for taking time to post this great review. As you know, we are not really a hotel, but a training and conference center, which does matter when you compare our amenities to a hotel or resort.

The staff was great giving you direction to get around this large compound of a building. The rooms are very small, there are no refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms. After taken two steps in my room, I could see everything in the whole room. I would not suggest this place to stay unless it was your very last option....

At any time, if you had a complaint or a need, please let us know. Most guests find that they have everything they need right here at The National. We serve almost 1,200 people a day; so food and drink is never in need and our food outlets are open almost 24/7, so we very rarely have guests ask for...

This hotel has the best breakfast and meals than any hotel I have ever been to. Rooms are small but very clean. I only ask them to include a microwave and refrigerators in the rooms. Overall it's a very good hotel to stay in . It's huge though.

We just love seeing these 5 star ratings and reviews on TripAdvisor. We are delighted that you enjoyed our food and beverage program at The National, but we do have one thing to change.

I was a little worried after reading the reviews. I expected a "jail cell" sized room, but it actually was nice - perfect for one person. Think of it as a scaled down guest room in an average hotel. I had a double bed and a desk, a full bathroom with shower and an open closet rack. This is a...

I always think of myself as a Runner from movie Logan's Run when I'm here...post-apocalyptic concrete sarcophagus...that I can't get out of...with really good food. Conference center is built for meetings not for hanging in your room. Confusing layout! I get lost every time. 10 years ago there were no phones or TVs in rooms, so that is better. Rooms...
