I originally booked a double queen in order to accommodate my family of three to celebrate my birthday, but upgraded to a river view suite when I realized the sofa made into a queen-size bed. Our room was ready by 1 pm and on the 26th floor. It was absolutely beautiful and had a wonderful view. Since my daughter was 16, we spent a couple of hours shopping and exploring and then decided to try Big Bubbas Bar-B-Q for an early dinner. The atmosphere was great and very family oriented. The napkins were paper towels and the condiments and three bbq sauces were kept handy in a six-pack carton. The food was very good and plentiful; we all had a wonderful time. After dinner, I didn’t want to leave my daughter alone at the arcade but I felt safe enough to leave her in our suite. With a TV in both rooms, music and high-speed internet access, she was just fine. Upon returning to our room, I noticed something on the coffee table and was pleasantly surprised to fine a birthday cake with real plates and silverware sitting neatly on a tray. A card read: Wigwomun (Welcome) Enjoy your special day. From the Management and Staff of Mohegan Sun. Now I'm sure they do this for everyone’s birthday after all I did mention it when upgrading my reservation, but it was so nice and made my birthday even more special. After hitting the casino for a few hours my husband and I returned and collected our daughter for a walk and a late night snack. The food court was just perfect for that and the pepperoni pizza hit the spot. When we went back to our suite, the sofa easily made into a bed and there was plenty of extra blankets and pillows. Our night's sleep was completely uninterrupted, no noise just silence. We will be returning in December for my husband's special day and then just the two of us for our Anniversary in May. Is it expensive? Maybe a bit, it depends on what day of the week you go. Check their website calendar; you can get some great deals. All that aside isn't a celebration or just a day spent a Mohegan Sun worth it. I think it is.
