MGM Reveals Guest Room Design for DC Casino Resort

MGM National Harbor - Guest Room - Washington DC

Two years after filing its initial proposal with the State of Maryland, MGM Resorts International has unveiled the guest room design for its forthcoming DC-area casino resort, MGM National Harbor in National Harbor, MD, the company announced last week.

Scheduled to open in the second half of 2016 on the eastern shore of the Potomac River, the new $1.3 billion resort will feature 308 rooms, including 234 standard guest rooms and 74 suites. The accommodations' design, MGM reported, will be inspired in large part by the nation's capital. Highlights will include light-colored woods and monochromatic earth tones, floor-to-ceiling windows, floor-to-ceiling millwork, DC-themed artwork, and bathrooms inspired by the interior of a yacht.

In-room technology and sustainability will figure prominently. All guest rooms, for instance, will feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology; motion sensors that automatically adjust temperature and lighting to save energy when guests are not present; advanced temperature and lighting controls; LED lighting; and water-efficient plumbing fixtures.

Beyond its guest rooms, MGM National Harbor will include a 125,000-square-foot casino, a spa and salon, a 3,000-seat entertainment theater, 18,000 square feet of retail space, several restaurants, and 27,000 square feet of meeting space.

"The room designs are just the first peek into the incredible collection of amenities we've curated to create an unparalleled experience for locals and visitors from around the world," said MGM National Harbor General Manager Bill Boasberg. "In an area steeped in tradition, MGM National Harbor will honor the region's legacy through its design elements while creating a sophisticated resort experience."
