The complex is designed in such a manner that the visitors can avoid the casino floor if they are only visiting the hotel or enjoying the entertainment facilities. In a statement, the General Manager of the resort, Bill Boasberg has said:

When people come see it, they are going to be awestruck. There is going to be something for everyone in this resort. We are not just targeting casino customers.

The hotel reservations at MGM National Harbor will commence from this week onwards for stays starting from the beginning of 10th December. The hotel is very luxurious and there are 300 exquisite rooms with exclusive and stylish decors. The rooms are priced between $399 and $599 for 24 hours. This casino resort was approved in the year 2012 without any kind of support from the house.

This is going to be the sixth casino site in Maryland State which offers novelty games. Opponents were worried that this casino will create a lot of overcrowding in the gambling market of the state. It is to be noted that the project is of a very large scale for Prince George county and it is going to provide a lot of employment opportunities to the unemployed and help in the economic growth of the area.

At present, 350 people are hired and 2,200 people have been given employment offers. The company is planning to hire 3,600 workers. Of all these workers, sixty percent of them should be the resident of Prince George County because of some commitment made by MGM when it was acquiring its license.
