We live in the area but every once in a while crave a getaway. A night at the Bellissimo Grande for our fifth anniversary filled the bill admirably.
The room was lovely, clean, and quite large. The in-room Jacuzzi (we had the mid-level "Venetian Suite" was big enough for two and quite luxurious. Bed was comfortable, flatscreen TV was very nice though as noted the channel selection was slim. Front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Limousine to Foxwoods meant we could leave our car and not worry about parking or if we wanted to drink, and they made a special pickup to bring us back when we called. Continental breakfast was adequate to start the day but not exciting.
It was very very nice for $139 when the casino hotels are probably at least triple the amount. I don't agree with some of the previous reviewers that it is "nicer" or "better" than Foxwoods, where we have also stayed. If you look at the furnishings, they are of a far cheaper quality and similarly, the "marble' surfaces are not real marble. But it was a very pleasant, very attractive place and well worth the money.
