We stayed in the bridal suite because we wanted a jacuzzi tub. The room itself was a great size and the tub was wonderful. Friday ngt we ate at Crescenzos. The food was good and the bartender was nice and very helpful. Afterwards we went to the bar downstairs which had a great happy hour($1 drinks) and a cool band.... More

When booking your rooms, question location. We stayed in a stream side room. It was the quiet side of the hotel but a very long walk to the ballroom. I guess this was better than being along the hall connected to the nightclub.

For its location to Mohegan Sun and its own nightlife, I'm sure it's fine. However, we had our toddler. I mentioned this when we booked for my nephew's wedding, but were given a small room on a corridor that connects a parking lot to some clubs. It was a runway for drunken louts and women of questionable employment. Sorry, just... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! You stayed with us on a weekend; unfortunately, even with our security staff, some weekends have a tendency to be a bit rowdier than during the week, due to our nightclub, several bar areas, and banquet functions - there's always at least a few events going on each day throughout...

My husband's company had their Christmas party at the Woodlands this weekend. We booked a king bed room with a stream view and we loved it! The dinner was ok, but not the best. The green beans were steamed with purple cabbage, rendering the liquor purple. Strange. The open bar was excellent! No watered down drinks! The shuttle service to... More

We had tickets to the Lady Antebellum concert. Upon arrival, we were given all of our details as to when the shuttle would pick us up and how to reconnect with them after the concert.
