The property’s 15 restaurants combine casual and fine dining, led by celebrity chefs. Retail shopping and a resort-style pool are also located on the property. For entertainment and dining, the Conservatory at MGM National Harbor is a 15,000 square foot attraction featuring seasonally changing floral pieces, while the 3,000-seat Theater at MGM National Harbor will host traveling theater performances and live musical acts, such as Bruno Mars later this month.

Rates for the new property start at $229.
