First I have to say that this hotel is beautiful!!! The beds are comfortable and the shower is great.
That said ....at reservations you are charged a $12.99 resort fee. This fee is for two 8 oz bottles of water in your room (woo hoo), in-room coffee maker (every motel or hotel has this) and morning newspaper delivered to your room (never got one and when I inquired about this I was told that you had to request it when you checked in). When we checked in we had a girl who was interning from Johnson and Wales and were never offered the morning paper. I don't blame her. When I pointed out to staff both at the room site and down at the front desk that I had already been charged for the newspaper they did not seem to care. I was told that they have over 800 rooms and cannot deliver papers to all. Well they may have 800 rooms but they did not have 800 occupancy. Also we were instructed to go down to the lobby for the paper and when we did they had a stack of two types of newspapers at the front desk. Which WE had paid for. Very poor policy. Shame on you MGM for nickel and diming for a newspaper.On top of this fee, if you want to try the indoor pool it's another $15 fee.
Also this hotel at Foxwoods is very far away from restaurants and most shops. If I stay at Foxwoods again, would probably choose Grand Pequot or Great Cedar for location reasons. This trip,however, confirmed that I would prefer to stay near or at Mohegan Sun. It's a nicer casino and love their 1/4 penny slots.
