MGM (NYSE: MGM) National Harbor Brings Vegas To The Capital

Posted on

Gambling giant MGM Resorts International has unveiled details of its MGM National Harbor resort recently, specifically its luxurious suites with views of monumental Washington.

Scheduled to open end of this year, MGM envisions the hotel will be rated at 4.5 stars. The hotel includes 234 standard guest rooms that average 400 square feet in size.

There are also 74 luxury suites that feature light-colored woods and warm earth tones and come with high-tech features that enable auto-adjusting temperature and lighting capabilities, LED lighting in the mirrors, along with WiFi and Bluetooth technology.

The suites range in size from 588 to 3,210 square feet. The 3,210-square-foot suite features lavish master bathrooms with oval bathtubs designed with a view of Washington’s monuments.

“The views are just second-to-none. You can lay on your bed and overlook the Potomac, the monuments, the Capitol. It is all glass,” said MGM National Harbor General Manager Bill Boasberg. “It’s really going to differentiate us from the hotel offerings in this area.”

“This is really going to change the game in this area from an experience standpoint,” said Boasberg. “We operate some of the most high-luxury resorts in the world between Bellagio and Aria and Mandalay Bay and the Mirage, and this rivals them in every aspect.”

Last week the company had launched a training facility for dealers in an expansion of its massive hiring undertaking for the resort’s 3,600 workers.

In recent weeks, MGM National Harbor also revealed a complete culinary portfolio and a permanent art collection from local and internationally known artists to be displayed on the resort grounds.
