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

We usually stay at Grand Pequot, but unfortunately the only comp rooms available were at Great Cedar. I have read very bad reviews on here about it, but honestly I really cannot find major faults with this hotel. The bed was extremely comfy. We stayed on the fourth floor (the smoking floor by choice). We stayed in room 452 right... More

We have stayed at the casino before. However this is the first time we stayed in the Grand Cedars. We normally stay in the hotel formally known as the MGM Grand. However, the walk from the MGM always feels like an eternity. So we decided to try the Great Cedars. For those of you that don't know the Great Cedars... More

Went with mom and daughter for midwinter getaway. Room was Nicely decorated, beds very comfortable and nice view. Indoor pool area not as nice as grand Pequot tower, so was a little disappointed in this, small and outdated. Otherwise pleasant stay.

Hotel located right in the casino. The room was ready much sooner than expected. The room was great but not as good as the Grand Pequot. For a night of dinner and gambling it was perfect for our needs.

We stayed here for 2 nights in January and were surprised that the quality we remembered from past years was gone. The staff were very good but the room was only OK. There were no towel racks in the bathroom so we had to be creative in hanging up the face towels. There were 2 sinks, one in the bathroom... More
