National Harbor, Md. [December 20, 2011]—Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center is pleased to announce that construction of RiverView Terrace, the capital region’s newest premier, outdoor waterfront venue, remains on schedule for a spring debut.
This week, Gaylord National relocated the American flagpole that marks the hotel’s waterfront from the Potomac River, allowing the new venue to feature 15,000 square feet of unimpeded event space. The flagpole can still be saluted adjacent to Riverview Terrace, and guests will now enjoy a completely unobstructed sunset or, if desired, private fireworks display above the skyline – Gaylord’s signature “Kiss Goodnight.”
Ideally situated facing west along the Potomac River, RiverView Terrace will provide an unparalleled experience with its majestic sunsets and dramatic ambiance. The versatile space, complete with multiple design options and upgrades, is meant to be a canvas for every event planner’s vision of the perfect special occasion. Next up: tent anchors and underground electrical hook-ups instillation.
RiverView Terrace is scheduled to open in April 2012 and will accommodate private events on a seasonal calendar through October 2012. For more information, visit www.gaylordnational.com/RiverViewTerrace.
