The new year will be a big one for Virginia’s hospitality industry in terms of openings. December saw the much-awaited debut of MGM National Harbor, a $1.4 billion casino and resort in Prince George’s County, Md., across the Potomac River from Alexandria. Two more properties, The Main in downtown Norfolk and a restored Cavalier on the Hill in Virginia Beach. All three properties promise the latest in amenities and luxury, and travelers and convention planners are checking them out and making reservations.
