The Gaylord National Riverview Ballroom is a free-standing structure featuring floor to ceiling glass and white aluminum curtain walls on three sides. The ballroom provides spectacular views of the Potomac River, Capital Wheel, and Woodrow Wilson Bridge. The steel structural design  reflects the nautical history of the Potomac River, with six 70-foot masts connected to sweeping metal panel canopy roofs supported by stainless steel cables.
 
Terraces surrounding the ballroom feature architectural concrete retaining walls that hover above varied landscaping. The ballroom’s interior boasts colorful woven carpet and elegant custom-patterned ceiling panels. The 28,000 square-foot space uses five retractable partitions to sub-divide it into eight different configurations, allowing for maximum flexibility.
