I visited the MGM National Harbor casino in November 2018, and I have to say how disappointed and disgusted I am with the service we received. After waiting 20 minutes at the bar on the first floor, without acknowledgement, I asked the bar-back what it...More

Near the Harbor and a lot of places to eat there. The restaurants were a little expensive, but it's in the casino so you can expect that. Pappas Crab cakes were okay, I have had better. The pumpkin cheesecake they had was nasty though.

It was a original suggestion for us to go for the casino, but the surrounding area of shops and big tv in the square to watch the football game was fantastic. The experience and the food was total worth our time in going.

I got tickets to #Imomsohard, and was impressed that Vegas was brought to Maryland/ DMV area. I read that this is the same family as the MGM and Bellagio in Las Vegas so the wild Vegas over-the-top decor makes sense. Then a casino. I did...More

Staff very friendly. Room was clean and modern. We didn’t really hear any noise from hallway or other rooms. Needs a sit down breakfast place other than pastry shop.

This place is really nice. It has beautiful views of the river and there are plenty of restaurants. Kids can come along to eat and check out the views too, they just can't go into the actual casino portion.

It is new and impressive. Same family as the MGM and Bellagio in Las Vegas and brings a bit of the Vegas over-the-top decor to Maryland. However, certain things are limited, like room service. We asked for tea and they hesitated before delivering from the...More

Not so sure about public transportation. Check out their website and/or call them and ask. Maybe try Lyft or Uber. Rental cars maybe an option; but be aware parking is at a premium price (parking garages) Good luck.

From MGM: when you exit the property you can take either 495 or 295 North. 295 is a straight shot.

I saw $15 but nothing less. The limits do change based on crowd/time of the week. Friday and Saturday nights will not be the lower limits.
