This is actually two reviews for the Hotel and Casino, both at 4 stars and highly recommended with some minor caveats.
Hotel - The hotel is impeccably clean. The rooms are large, with a desk, chair and lounger. The TV was nice and large as well (if you care). We had a view of the river on the 12th floor. It was all very nice and very convenient if you are out late at the casino. Valet was free (please tip both ways). It's fairly expensive though and the shower broke on us.
Casino - The facility is really a gigantic mall of casinos, shops and restaurants. There's water features and many a things hanging from the roof, but once you get past that, you just see a very nice mall. The place reeks of smoke throughout, but so do a lot of casinos. The non-smoking areas couldn't be any more ineffective. And I don't mean to sound insensitive, but there are many a "Rascal" user who frequent this casino. At one point, I was the only able-bodied person in the promotions line of about 10 people.
It's a fantastic facility. We lost a few bucks on slots which are varied and for the most part pay out. We sat at the bar and played multi-denominational slots and they paid at the best. Bonus was the free drinks every 20 minutes. One thing of note, CT law shuts down liquor earlier than most NYers are used to especially on Sundays. Stock up beforehand with what you want including water, snacks and other miscellaneous goods or pay major mini bar fees. There are very few places to buy just a bottle of Coke. Lastly, if you are deciding between a weekend or a week, pick the former. After a day you've seen almost everything. You can pick up and leave for Foxwoods or sightseeing at Mystic, but there's very little to see or do around the casino unlike AC or Vegas.
