We visited Mohegan Sun last year for the first time, staying off premises, and wanted to come back and stay at the hotel for the full experience. We were very happy we did. We had a beautiful River Suite which was truly one of the best rooms we have stayed in, and we have stayed in a lot of places. The suite was huge, with a walk-in area, separate toilet for the living room, which had all to wall windows overlooking the casino and river on two sides; and the bedroom was the same. Wow, what a view! The bathroom was great. Both a walk-in shower and a bathtub, that had a full view of the river next to it with a huge window, including a shade that came down with a push of a button. (went well with the Lush store selling bath bars in the shopping area downstairs). No turndown service, but they give you plenty of towels for the day and night. Free WiFi and free morning paper. The staff was accommodating and friendly. Take the elevator down, and you are in the main shopping and restaurant areas, which we also like. For food, a lot of options running from Krispy Kreme/Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts and more for breakfast; Jasper White's Summer Shack, Michael Jordan's Steakhouse, Ballo, Tuscany, Margaritaville and more. Good shopping: Tommy Bahama's, Lush, Coach, a place that sold Alex and Ani things, and more. The pool and deck area were a little bit of a minus. Relatively small pool for a place this size, inside with windows that open to a deck. Hot tub with the usual sign that says no one under the age of 18 to use it, and a mother with two 3-6 year olds in it....so what else is new? Fairly large deck with rather stiff lounge chairs to sit outside. That area could use some improvements. Nice flat screen TVs in the suite. We have stayed in a lot of the places in Atlantic City, The Sands in Bethlehem, and have been to Las Vegas to a variety of places like Bellagio, Caesar's and the two Wynn ops. We think the ambiance of Mohegan Sun is the best of the bunch.
