Quick overnight for my husband and I. We travel to the casinos about 4 times a year and this is the first time we decided to stay over. Searched all the area hotels and found MGM Grand to be the best price for a mid-week stay. They did not disappoint. Lobby area was clean and modern. The check-in was quick...asked... More

My boyfriend and I booked a suite for our birthday celebration this past weekend and we had such a fantastic experience at this hotel! Check-in: Friendly staff, barely any line to wait in. We were able to get into our room a full 3 hours before check-in time, which was great! We hadn't requested an early check-in so it was... More

The lobby is stunning, so from the moment you walk in, you're treated to a lovely entrance. The light fixtures on the ceiling are gorgeous & the waterfall behind the front desk was a nice touch. The only reason I didn't give an Excellent rating is because of the first woman who attempted to help us behind the counter. She... More

Had the distinct pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel recently. The rooms are wonderful, with plenty of space, and tastefully done. Loved the valet parking, the flat screen tv's, and as mentioned in other posts, the part of the casino that attaches to the MGM Grand is somewhat smaller, but has several nice shops, and a Junior's for catching...

This is our favorite of all the hotel choices at Foxwoods. The rooms are spacious and wonderfully appointed. We always request room 135 as it is the last room on the floor and beside the fire staircase. Therefore there is no one on either side of us; The room is slightly smaller ,yet private. The suites are also lovely, one... More

We spent Thanksgiving at Foxwoods and stayed on the MGM side. The room was comfortable and clean and actually very quiet considering we had neighbors on both sides. Only problem was getting the cleaning staff to clean the room daily. The resort itself is really nice. Every kind of gambling you desire. If you are a poker player, this room... More

We had a room with two queen beds, luxury linens, huge walk in shower, spacious bathroom. The toilet was in a separate room, but no actual door, that would have been nice. AND.....this was a comped room, soooo nice. Cannot wait to come back.

A recent summer vacation with my 88 year young mother proved to be worth the drive from Nova Scotia. Although we weren't so lucky in the casino, the hotel most lovely with very comfortable beds.

My husband and I enjoy a room at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods at least once a month since I receive 2 complimentary rooms each week of the month. I really love the end room with the circular glass panoramic windows. I made a huge mistake while booking on our last visit, I had made a reservation for two nights... More
