MGM National Harbor, the first luxury resort in the Capital Region of Maryland, is officially open for business.

“MGM Resorts is bringing the same high standards for hospitality, service and quality to Maryland that we are recognized for in our hotels in Las Vegas and around the world,” says Lorenzo Creighton, president, MGM National Harbor. “Furthermore, the resort’s proximity to the nation’s capital provides us with a rich, diverse community that has enabled us to build a dynamic workforce that reflects our commitment to inclusion.”

The $1.4 billion resort provides a unique experience with views of the Washington Monument, National Mall, US Capitol, Potomac River, National Harbor and Old Town Alexandria along with the woodlands and riverscape of Prince George County.

“This level of private investment is unprecedented in the region, and so is what we’ve built,” says Jim Murren, chairman and CEO, MGM Resorts International. “MGM Resorts has long promoted global trade and travel—and MGM National Harbor will be a significant driver of both, strengthening Washington, D.C. as a tourist magnet.”

MGM National Harbor features several restaurants, a 3,000-seat theater, an art program with more than 70 local artists, a 15,000-square-foot conservatory, two nightlife concepts, a 27,000-square-foot spa and salon, a variety of retailers, a hotel with 308 rooms (ranging from 400 - 3,210 square feet) and a 125,000-square-foot casino.
