Front desk is the best ever. We have been staying at Great Cedar 2x a year for 10-15 years. Every trip back same problems still exist in rooms whether it be faulty lighting, something broken etc. Last year we broke up our week stay and stayed at Mohegan. It is hard to let go of Foxwoods but the whole resort... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in Aug 2014. This place is great. Valet was fast, check-in was fast and quick, and no waiting for my room. The room was very comfortable, beds were great and comfy. I usually stay at Grand Pequot which is also very nice. No complaints with Great Cedar and will definitely consider staying here again.... More

My husband and I took my father to Foxwoods yesterday. We stayed at the Grand Pequot Towers the last three times that we visited, but I thought it might be nice to try the Great Cedar this time. The lobby was pretty with deep green and gold colors as well as a massive fountain off to the left near the... More

My husband and I went to see Seinfeld. We reserved a King bed room for two nights and requested a wheelchair accessible room. I use a wheelchair and cannot stand. I was told that an accessible room couldn't be guaranteed. That was the first problem. I cannot use an inaccessible room. When I arrived, I did get an accessible room... More

After reading some negative reviews, I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed at this hotel on July 18th and 19th. We stayed in a King room on the 5th floor. It was clean, comfortable, and roomy. There was a mini frig with complimentary water bottles which was a plus. The maids were accommodating when we asked for extra towels and... More

This was the first hotel built for the Foxwoods Casino. It shows. The common spaces are worn and shabby. I was here for a conference. The front desk could not get my prepaid reservation correct for 24 hours and then placed a 72 hour hold on my personal debit. I found the front desk staff was unknowledgeable and even less... More

We go to Foxwoods twice a year and normally stay at the old MGM. One year ago we tried the Great Cedar. We had a dirty room with a view of a roof. We contacted the front desk that basically didn't seem to care. The manager we talked to was great and solved things. So this year we decided to... More

This is the original hotel built with the Foxwoods Resort 20 years ago and is still a top notch place to stay. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, quiet, and has all the amenities you need for a great overnight stay.

Maybe I was expecting too much since I normally stay at the Grand Pequot but the only rooms available were in the Great Cedars. I had booked a stayed in a king suite. The room was nice on the first glance but noticed little things that just added up to too much to make it feel very dirty. The 1/2... More
