My husband and I stayed at the Mohegan Sun hotel a few weekends ago. We had tickets for the Muse concert and decided to turn it into a mini-getaway.
First of all, the concert arena at Mohegan Sun is fantastic. It's not a huge venue, so sight-lines are pretty good no matter where you are sitting. The show wasn't sold out, so staff were offering better seats to folks up in the nosebleeds; they didn't have to do that, and they had a really organized system for it that didn't create any chaos. (We kept our seats since we liked our vantage point!) The sound quality is amazing. Great show.
Now, on to the hotel. As others have stated, the weekend/event rates are simply astronomical, but we were willing to pay for the convenience of being on-site. Free valet parking is a nice perk, eliminating the need to haul bags from a parking garage and through the casino. Check-in staff were friendly. The room was clean and quiet, which we appreciated -- it's unusual at a casino hotel NOT to hear loud people staggering to their rooms in the wee hours. The only thing that wasn't quiet? The toilet. Another reviewer likened it to a space ship taking off. That's accurate. It's certainly an efficient toilet, but if you use it in the middle of the night you will likely wake up your traveling companion!
Bobby Flay's Bar Americain, right around the corner from the hotel elevators, was phenomenal. Service and food is on par with the Manhattan location. We also ordered late-night room service, after the concert and some gambling. The slots were not generous to us, but the portion of chocolate cake was. This delicious treat was delivered in the time frame quoted. We also ordered a pint of ice cream, which was brought up in its own ice bucket. Smart.
Bottom line: We wouldn't do this often at the rates charged, but definitely again for a concert or special weekend trip.
