By the fourth quarter of 2016, the $1.3 billion MGM National Harbor casino is expected to open its doors to the public. Before its big opening, two more floors of glass enclosure still need to be completed at the 24-story, 308-room hotel, reported The Washington Post. Just recently, MGM National Harbor released details on the hotel's premier suite offerings, developed by Studio GAIA.
There will be a total of 74 suites at the hotel, each ranging from 588 to 3,210 square feet. The standard guest rooms will average 400 square feet. Each luxury suite will offer high-tech features, such as WiFi and auto-adjusting temperature and lighting capabilities, reported The Washington Post.
According to a press release, the developer was inspired by forest and water elements native to the Maryland area. With this, the developer used light-colored wood elements and warm earth tones throughout.
There are seven types of suites: executive, king, corner, executive corner, capital, presidential, and chairman.
The 588-square-foot Executive Suite is meant to serve as an extension of the standard guest room, according to a press release. There is customized lighting, a desk, and a king-sized bed. With 797 square feet of space, the King Suite is ADA-accessible. The Corner Suites measure 959 square feet and offer wraparound views, a separate living room, media center, sofa, and desk. The Executive Corner Suites are 1,465 square feet and offer the same features as Corner Suites as well as a traditional four-person dining area and a plush round sofa in the bedroom.
Next up, the Capital Suites measure 1,536 square feet and feature a 75" HD LCD TV, fully stocked bar, bonus powder room, and a small library and reading room. The Presidential Suite is the second largest suite in the hotel and features 2,462 square feet of space. This suite comes with a six-person dining table, bar, and an all-glass wall with views of the Potomac River. Finally, the 3,210-square-foot Chairman Suite comes with two bedrooms, a glass facade, and full-size dining room. It also features decorative columns, a library and reading area, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Reservations for MGM National Harbor's rooms and suites are not yet available. Prices have not yet been revealed.
Along with the hotel, there will also be a 26,582-square-foot spa and salon, 12 restaurants, and 18,259-square-feet of retail space. Expect 27,431-square-feet of conference space as well as 3,600 slot machines, 140 gambling tables, and a 3,000-seat theater.
When it comes to how the casino will benefit the community, MGM National Harbor expects there to be 3,600 permanent "good-paying" jobs created with an annual payroll of $80 million paid to County residents.
