It’s not the holidays until the gingerbread comes out. Thankfully, the Gaylord National Resort & Convention in Maryland’s National Harbor has you covered. Through January 1, the public will be able to check out a totally over-the-top Washington, D.C.-themed gingerbread display, decked out with the Washington Monument, reflecting pool, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, U.S. Capitol, and even some colorful rowhouses.

In a tweet, the hotel confirmed that it was their pastry team that concocted the perfect display after 340 hours of work. If interested in seeing it, it’s located in the main lobby.

Along with the gingerbread display, the hotel has a number of other holiday events and activities, including a nightly indoor snowfall in the atrium, photos with Santa Claus through December 24, and a gingerbread decorating corner. There is also ICE!, a signature holiday attraction with over 2 million pounds of ice showcasing the scenes from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

For a closer look at the hotel’s gingerbread display, check out the photos below.
