National Harbor Complex
If you travel the Interstate Highway 495 between Virginia and Maryland, you’re bound to see the mega-complex known as National Harbor. Anchored by the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor features boutique businesses, impressive restaurants and eateries, private residences, several hotels, a marina, office space, and even the Capital Ferris Wheel. Yes, there is much to do at National Harbor.
Also a part of the National Harbor complex, just a bit north of the main campus, another Maryland phenomenon rises from the banks of the Potomac River, the MGM National Harbor Hotel and Casino.
Built at a cost of $1.4 billion, this 24-story, glass-walled hotel and casino features 234 guest rooms and 74 luxury suites, 125,000-square-feet of gaming including 58 blackjack tables, 25 baccarat tables, and 3,300 slot machines, a 27,000-square-foot spa and salon, and 50,000-square-feet of meeting and convention facilities.
And when you tire of the breathtaking views the MGM National Harbor provides of the Potomac River, Old Town Alexandria, and Washington, D.C., head to one of 15 dining options including acclaimed, chef-driven restaurants.
