I recently stayed in the GP Tower for one night while attending a business meeting. I walked in to a line at the reception desk and only 2 people working at the many reception computers. It felt like the supermarket with 20 registers and only 2 open. I asked for a room with a nice view. The surrounding woods are very pretty. The women made a noise of acceptance. I thought she understood when she gave me a high floor. Unfortunately my room looked directly across at the other wing of the tower and had no view. The first thing I noticed was the chemical freshener used in the room, not very nice. The next thing was the cigarette hole in the bedspread. Next was the wastebasket that hadn't been emptied from the last guest. Overall the room was tired and needed updating. The bathroom was spacious but it is empty space and not very attractive. The only real plus is that the room was good size overall. The air conditioning was quite loud but it kept the room cool.
A group of us had dinner at David Burke Prime. Everything was excellent. We then decided to play pool in High Rollers. The tables were nice Brunswicks but the felt a mess on each table and the cues were in rough shape. We headed to the casinos next. It was fairly quiet being a weeknight. I thought the casino would be nicer but it was fairly basic. We headed over to the MGM casino expecting that it would be much more impressive but it wasn't much better.
This hotel is charging premium rates for a mid-level experience. I have been to Mohegan Sun in the past. It seemed like a much nicer hotel than this one.
