    When booking marinas, we look for certain criteria, especially when paying top dollar per foot to stay there. The Wharf Marina advertises laundry services and internet. Upon docking, John the dockhand - very nice, simply was surprised I asked about both and indicated they had neither. We could get laundry at their other marina, which was pretty far away to carry laundry and internet did not exist for transients. This marina has a far way to go before they can be charging the prices they are asking without any amenities. In this day and age, who doesn't have Wifi for people, but certainly you cannot advertise things that are not correct. I would not recommend for transients.

    Stayed there over the 4th of July (at the liveaboard slips). They provided us an escort boat to find our slip. Great location for visiting DC. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more friendly! I'd stay there again!

    Stayed on a mooring for 5 nights. Fantastic location right next to Washington DC. Close to everything -- metro station, Safeway grocery, tons of restaurants and the National Mall. Dinghy dock is five minutes away located between the Y and Z docks where the full time, live-aboards are docked. It's behind a locked gate so seemed very secure. Free laundry was a bonus. Only downside was that there was a lot of construction going on with pounding machinery right on the wharf. Also, it's right under the helicopter flight path so you'll be hearing the whirr of helicopter blades quite frequently. We'd stay here again.

    Bathroom facilities are pathetic. Located on small boat with only two unisex stalls. For the money paid per slip, rates no stars. Marina and slips were fine, but the bathroom facilities were terrible.

    Lots of dockhands were available as several yacht clubs arrived at once, so that was very helpful. They were very responsive to questions and requests for help. Loved the floating docks, that it had a gate with pin code access to the docks for security, and that it was so covenient o all the amenities the new Wharf has to offer. Only downside - the restrooms and showers on Market Docks. Need to be air conditioned, and shower water temperature was not controllable. Snag-A-Slip management (Theresa) has been particularly responsive and helpful!

    The dock people were very helpful. Power cord available at the slip. Slips not easily identifiable when approaching from the water. Concrete floating slips were large and clean. For price paid, had the following issues: ONE portable bathhouse not acceptable for number of slips. One separate toilet and one shower room with toilet was not air-conditioned and showerhead had to be held to keep water flowing. Faucet difficult to regulate water temp. No WiFi as advertised. Need to take a cab or Uber to get to second set of bath facilities and office at sister (Old Gangplank) Marina.

    Great place, enjoyed our time there. The dinghy dock service is superb with two locations, one very close to the fish market. We were on the moorings. Very pleasant.

    New floating docks. Fabulous location. Close to the fish market. There is still some construction,so WiFi doesn’t work, but full bars for Sprint. At $2 a foot the price is a bargain.

    Great location downtown D.C. New Dockmaster, very good new floating dock on transient pier Z. No wifi though. Very reasonable cost for location. Have to not mind noise from Reagan National Airport.
