NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – The U.S. Capital Region is set to welcome its first luxury gaming resort next month, just minutes from Washington D.C. on the banks of the Potomac River.

The US$1.4 billion MGM National Harbor will make its highly anticipated debut on Dec. 8, featuring 308 rooms and suites ranging in size from 400 to 3,210 square feet, both upscale and casual dining options, a European-inspired pastry shop with a 26-foot-tall chocolate fountain, and entertainment programming at The Theater at MGM National Harbor.

Other amenities and facilities include a two-storey Conservatory, 50,000 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor plaza, a bar and cocktail lounge, spa and salon, a 125,000 square-foot casino, as well as 18,000 square feet of luxury retail space. In addition, beginning in spring 2017, hotel guests will be able to enjoy an outdoor, heated, infinity-edge pool, complete with private cabanas and poolside cocktail service.

“After years of planning, designing and developing, we are thrilled that the moment is almost upon us to share this very special resort with the community and visitors from around the world,” said Lorenzo Creighton, president of MGM National Harbor. “We are grateful to Prince George’s County, the state of Maryland and all of the local designers, artisans and businesses that have collaborated with us to deliver this international resort with very local roots.”

The resort is offering nightly room rates starting at $399, and suite rates from $599, and is now accepting room reservations for stays beginning Dec. 10. For more details go to
