RIVERVIEW TERRACE CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

 

GAYLORD NATIONAL RELOCATES FLAGPOLE

Clear Vistas of National Harbor Marina Ahead

 

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.”
