We popped in for a Sunday night for our 30th wedding anniversary for a short gambling junket with no grand expectations to this former MGM Resort. I must say that I was very surprised at the result. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable; that is all you really need when you don't intend to spend too much time... More

We arrived an hour earlier than the normal check in but our room was ready much to my surprise. The check in process was easy and the desk clerk put us on the 19th floor letting us know that the lower floors can be noisy due to loud music, this was much appreciated. The room was clean, the bathroom was... More

We needed to escape the snow and cabin fever. It's a great hotel attached to restaurants and a casino. Lots of slot and table action to help forget the snow outside. And for those who want to get steps in it is attached to Foxwoods Casino, so walk those 10,000 steps.

The rooms are fine in the way that they are clean, and the bathroom was spacious. Carpets throughout the hotel are old, tired and in need of replacement. The entire place smells like smoke (outside of the room). The alarm in the room went off at 7:30am, so much for sleeping in. Housekeeping clearly could use some attention to detail.... More

Great bathroom shower! You could tell these rooms get plenty of use. Ours was certainly clean but some of the furniture was showing its age. You would think there would be easily replaceable pieces but nah be they are waiting for an entire update? A little disappointed but was still better than most of the local hotels and blah chain...

I had purchased a Groupon for a two night stay at Fox Tower, and I can't wait to buy another one. Part of the deal was the VIP check-in instead of the regular one, so we breezed in and out of the check-in process. I asked for a room on a high floor, near the elevators, and with a view... More

The room is very comfortable, very clean, spacious, however a big negative we had was at 2:30 am had to call down multiple times. I realize it is a casino, but its also a hotel and at 230 in the morning I should not have to hear rap BLARING and drunk girls screaming.

This was my first stay at The Fox Tower. Overall it was a nice hotel & I enjoyed my stay but it's the little things and for me the little things are important especially when billed as a "luxury" hotel. The lobby is certainly impressive and the mosaic glass tile water feature behind the front desk is calming. That's a... More

I stayed here for two nights. I haven't stayed here since it changed from the MGM. My husband and I were on the 10th floor and had an end room, the room was all windows and had a great view of the rest of Foxwoods. The walk was a little long to get to the rest of Foxwoods, but it... More

This is the second free stay here at the Fox Tower at Foxwoods. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are super comfy. I love the bathrooms and great showers and the rooms are always clean. We have had an awesome view both times and there is nothing better than staying up late to gamble and being able to... More
