The MGM Harbor has announced its plans to open December 8 outside of Washington D.C. The luxury gaming resort will have 308 rooms, 24 stories, and comes in at a $1.4 billion budget. The resort’s general manager Bill Boasberg spoke out about it in a press release.
“On December 8, MGM National Harbor will introduce something unprecedented to one of the country’s most popular travel destinations. Under one roof, guests will enjoy a sophisticated hotel experience, high-energy casino, celebrity-chef restaurants, world-class entertainment, nightlife, destination spa, upscale retail and curated art, complemented by incredible panoramas of D.C., Maryland and Virginia.”
One major draw to the resort is that it will feature a 3,000 seat venue for concerts, comedy acts, and boxing matches, etc. There will also be a two story conservatory that will change five times a year for each season as well as the Lunar new year, and it will be visible from different areas of the resort.
The resort is also located on the Potomac River and will have an outdoor reflecting pool, fountain, and infinity pool with private cabanas and poolside service. The pool won’t open until 2017, but the hotel is currently accepting reservations for the opening this year.
