The $1.4 billion MGM National Harbor has started taking reservations. Nestled in the woodlands of Prince George's County, Maryland, HKS Hospitality Group's gaming resort is gearing up for its December 8th opening.
The hotel is slated as one of the "20 Most Anticipated Hotel Openings of 2016" (Forbes.com). In addition to suites, the hotel has a casino, two-story conservatory with horticulture and entertainment, and a dining and shopping complex.
Resort general manager Bill Boasberg said, 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.
HKS architect Eddie Abeyta is the designer behind the mixed-use development project. A press release for the project stated that Abeyta was influenced by the historical monuments around the district. The organizational concepts of master plans like L'Enfant and McMillan also influenced Abeyta's radiating streets and axial arrangements.
MGM Harbor's interior design resonates with the forest and water aesthetic of Maryland, while it also frames its surrounding views. Chefs Jose Andres, Marcus Samuelsson, and Bryan and Michael Voltaggio will add to the dining venues. A European-inspired pastry shop, Bellagio Patisserie, will further complement the luxurious setting with its 26-foot tall chocolate fountain circulating melted chocolate.
What more could one ask for? A 3,000 seat venue will provide for entertainment and events at the site, while 18,000 square feet will be devoted to retail space with brands to be named soon. Finally, the casino space will host 3,300 slot machines for night-long entertainment.
Nightly rates begin at $399 and suite rates start at $599 for stays launching December 10th.
