For leisure travelers looking for a hotel at Foxwood Resort and Casino, the Grand Pequot Tower is the most centrally located upscale choice. This three-and-a-half-pearl property has 825 rooms, which are spacious and tastefully decorated, and include mini-fridges, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel has its own indoor pool and fitness center, plus four on-site restaurants, in addition to what's available within the resort complex itself. Travelers seeking a bit more luxury might want to check out the Fox Tower, which has better views and chicer rooms, but it's farther -- about a 10-minute walk -- from the main casino.
Upscale hotel with a Vegas feel and a Connecticut location
The Grand Pequot Tower is one of four hotels that make up the Foxwoods Resort and Casino (the second largest casino complex in North America), and it's one of the more upscale choices. At 23 stories tall, the hotel's common areas are especially grand, with elegant accents like inset ceilings, molded wall detailing, and large windows that let in lots of natural light. The lobby is spacious, with marble floors accented by turquoise carpeting and rich wood-paneled walls. The property attracts a good share of business travelers attending on-site conventions, but most guests are leisure travelers, including families with children.
Next to Foxwood's casinos and entertainment venues
Surrounded by forest, the Grand Pequot Tower is situated within the Foxwoods complex in the middle of the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Reservation. Of the upscale choices at Foxwood, the Grand Pequot is the most centrally located, offering easy access to restaurants, entertainment, and the main casino. The hotel is about a 20-minute drive to Mystic Seaport, the Mohegan Sun, and the New London Amtrak stop. For guests arriving by car, the hotel is about 20 minutes from I-95, and on-site valet parking is free. Many buses also stop at the casino.
Spacious rooms with contemporary decor, mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi
The 825 rooms at the Grand Pequot Tower range in size from standard Deluxe Rooms to Corner Suites measuring 1,400 square feet with separate rooms and hot tubs. But even the baseline rooms at Grand Pequot Tower are large, measuring 450 square feet, with either a king or two queen beds. Room decor is contemporary and tasteful, if somewhat generic, with a neutral color palette of gray and white accented by dark-brown furniture and an occasional pop of turquoise. Rooms include armchairs and desks, with irons, ironing boards, and safes housed in wardrobes. Coffeemakers, mini-fridges, 32-inch flat-screen TVs with video on-demand, and free Wi-Fi also come standard. Bathrooms, in neutral beige, are spacious as well, with roomy vanity areas, but they have shower/tub combos that give them a dated look. Hairdryers and individual toiletries are provided. Some of the higher-floor rooms have exceptional views of the surrounding forest, especially during fall's peak foliage season.
