This was our first stay at Great Cedar. Although MGM at Foxwoods beats it out, it was a decent hotel. The locale is very convenient as it is right above the Foxwoods casino. We had a king bed which was very comfortable. There was a desk connected to the bureau with computer connection and free wi-fi. The bureau housed a refrigerator and safe, along with 2 deep drawers and the coffee/tea supplies. There was a flat screen TV on the bureau. There was a corner window seat as well as another chair and 2 tables. There is a clock radio with an I-pod dock on the nightstand. The bathroom was very clean and had an extra sink just outside the bathroom, across from the closet. This was nice to have two sinks/mirrors. The room showed some wear in frayed toss pillows and the toilet seat was missing the hinge cover.
My only real complaint is the housekeeping. Upon arrival, the room was fine. We stayed two nights so after getting up and out on our first full day, we were quite surprised when we returned at 3:00 in the afternoon and our room wasn't cleaned yet. The housekeeper was in the hall and said she hadn't gotten to it yet. We told her we'd be back and went to the pool for a while. Once we returned, although they had been in the room, there were problems. We had had breakfast delivered to the room in the morning and because we couldn't break down the table to fit it through the door into the hall, we had left it in the room, assuming housekeeping would take care of it. Well, they didn't. It was still in our room! Also, they did not give us new soap (the bars of soap are tiny). They did not replenish the coffee condiments that we used (stirrers, sugar, etc.) So, we weren't thrilled with the lack of care given our room by that staff.
Overall though, it was a nice stay. The pool and hot tub are nice and clean. The valet service was great. The front desk staff was nice on check in and check out. We had a room far away from the elevator, at the end of the hall which was nice and quiet. We'd consider going back.
