Overview

Multiple celebrity chef-affiliated restaurants available here
Gamblers who frequent Las Vegas casinos say resort's casino floor is underwhelming

Although several reviewers said this pricey MGM Resorts outpost – which sits 11 miles south of Washington, D.C., in Oxon Hill, Maryland – pales in comparison to Las Vegas' casinos, many appreciated its close proximity to the National Harbor entertainment complex, as well as its variety of shops and restaurants. Dining options range from a Shake Shack to an upscale food court to celebrity chef-affiliated locales like Fish by José Andrés and Voltaggio Brothers Steak House. But MGM National Harbor offers more than just top-notch eateries. Travelers can catch a live performance in the 3,000-seat theater, admire the conservatory's themed floral arrangements or go for a dip in the outdoor swimming pool. Other available facilities include a 27,000-square-foot spa and three bars and lounges. When it's time to retire for the evening, the resort has 308 guest rooms and suites to choose from. All feature neutral color schemes and come equipped with LCD televisions, Serta pillow-top mattresses and minibars. Plus, the property's $23.59 daily resort fee covers high-speed internet access.
