Beauty and functionality combine to make the four ballrooms of Gaylord National the perfect choice for your reception, banquet, gala or general session. Ranging in size from 8,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet, these ballrooms can be divided into more intimate spaces as your needs require.

Successful Events

We offer the perfect formula for a successful meeting: Each ballroom is completely equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual and lighting systems. Dramatically distinct decor inspires awe, while the National's dedicated conference planning team anticipates your every need.

Cherry Blossom Ballroom

Our most intimate ballroom is the perfect choice to host exclusive galas, and with 8,817 square feet of pre-function space offering stunning views of our glass-enclosed atrium and the Potomac River, the Cherry Blossom Ballroom is poised to become the absolute "it" place for exclusive charity events and corporate galas in D.C. The luxuriously appointed grand hall features a custom screen-printed wall featuring cherry blossoms in spring bloom. Three cut-crystal chandeliers inspired by local venues such as the Kennedy Center and the White House's East Wing Ballroom sparkle at the center of the room.

Potomac Ballroom

Our signature ballroom features more than 50,000 square feet of space, plus a 4,300-square-foot theatrical stage, four dressing rooms and a green room. Your guests and attendees can mingle and network on the pre-function balcony that offers breathtaking views of the Potomac River. The four lockable registration desks and offices, along with the five dedicated and covered loading docks, provide maximum ease and efficiency during the setup and execution of your event.

Maryland Ballroom

Conveniently located near the Chesapeake Conference Rooms, the Maryland Ballroom offers 31,306 square feet of meeting space and 17,375 square feet of pre-function space.

Woodrow Wilson Ballroom

Just a short walk from the Business Center (and last-minute copying and faxing services), the Woodrow Wilson Ballroom provides 14,111 square feet of space for mid-sized events. The Baltimore and Annapolis conference rooms, located just outside the ballroom, add even more flexibility for breakout meetings. The Fort Washington Boardroom across the hallway makes the perfect complement for executive meetings.
