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

We go to Foxwoods every Christmas and this year was the first time we stayed at the MGM Grande. Loved it. The rooms, the fitness center/spa (didn't have to pay to use the gym), the casino, the food...it was all wonderful.

We have stayed here twice in the last 6 weeks. The standard room had a great view and was spotless. We thought the mattress was hard and uncomfortable which was a bummer but was the only fault we could fine. The staff is wonderful. The second time we stayed in a producer's suite. The bathroom in the suite was awesome.... More

This property exceeded our expectations. The staff is professional and courteous, the property is not only beautiful but also spotless. We stayed in a Directors Suite and were not disappointed. The only draw back is that the pool can not accommodate all of it patrons. The weather was beautiful and guests were allowed to put the lounges in the shallow... More

Have stayed at the MGM Grand twice this year. Both times I had a high room facing the back of the property. The rooms are spacious and I love the bathrooms. Very large stand-up showers with great showerheads. The linens are good as are the pillows. Plenty of elevators so you're never waiting to go up or down. Don't like... More
