The MGM National Harbor is a resort casino located in Oxon Hill, Maryland, on the eastern shore of the Potomac River, just south of Washington, D.C. The establishment opened its doors on December 8, 2016, following a $1.4 billion investment. It is owned by Vici Properties and operated by MGM Resorts International.
The resort features a 23-story hotel with 308 rooms, a gaming space of 135,000 square feet, retail space, a spa, seven restaurants, a 3,000-seat theater with seven VIP suites, 27,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and a parking garage for 4,800 cars.
The property includes restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues. The diverse food and beverage options are a mix of local and international cuisines, ranging from fine dining to casual fare.
The hotel itself is a major attraction with luxurious rooms and suites that provide panoramic views of the surrounding area, including the Potomac River, Washington D.C., and Old Town Alexandria.
The casino offers a large variety of games including slot machines, poker, blackjack, craps, roulette, and other table games. The resort’s theater has been a venue for many top acts, hosting world-renowned musicians, comedians, and theatrical performances.
In terms of architecture, the resort was designed to reflect the geography and history of the area, with a focus on natural light and materials like wood and stone. The design incorporates sustainability features, with a goal of achieving LEED Gold certification. The design of the building is in harmony with the marble used in many of the buildings in Washington DC, and the organization of the casino is along a central axis, similar to the arrangement for the National Mall.
The MGM National Harbor is also home to a significant collection of art, with pieces from local and international artists on display throughout the property. The resort’s public spaces feature a permanent collection of art inspired by the Washington metropolitan area and developed in collaboration with Prince George’s County Arts and Humanities Council, Atlantic Arts, and RareCulture. The west entrance to the facility features a 25-by-15-foot iron archway composed of “found objects” such as farming tools, children’s toys, wheels, and axes designed by Bob Dylan.
