How to Get There
So this review is only for the hotel accomodations of the Fox Towers, not the casino or other venues - and based simply on that, I was quite surprised by how comfortable and quiet the rooms were. If you're not familiar with Foxwoods' layout - as I am not - it took me a little bit of wandering within the outskirts of the casino floor to find the lobby. The lobby itself is large and somewhat Trumpian in its decor - brash, ostentatious, full of faux gold tones, and ultimately cold. Thankfully, the reception staff was well-mannered and welcoming. Another oddity is that you have to go back out onto the casino floor to find the hotel elevators - no doubt this is all planned to lure you into that den of gambling! (What really lured me was the Juniors diner off the lobby and the thought of cheesecake ...)
But back to the accomodations: the room was large. clean, and comfortable, quiet and a quiet A/C unit. My room didn't have a tub but had a large sit-down shower stall. The water pressure was a full-bore fire hose blast - no anemic water-saving throttles here - that nearly knocked you off your feet. Nice - Cosmo Kramer would approve. The only drawback to the stay is that the wifi signal is a bit slow - no doubt an effort to remind you that you're not there to work but to play ..
Hi this is Frank I stayed at Foxwoods at the last week on November 2018. And I had a blast. The food was great my stay was free on a comp . And I won 1250 dollars to boot . Ya Hoo. Thanks Fowwoods and by the way , take the cross ferry. Out at Orient point and stop in the office and get your free comps . Good luck. Frank.
I got a mid-week promo to stay at the Fox Tower for $59. After taxes and resort fee it was just under $100. It was a nice enough room. Nice shower. There is a small coffee pot in room with Guy Fieri coffee discs and two tea bags. The tv was pretty small for a hotel room. The issues I had with the room, there were complimentary bottles of water which were both opened. When things like that happen, it leads me to believe the room wasn’t cleaned well. The sheets were very starchy. They weren’t itchy, but very stiff and noisy when you moved. Lastly, we paid $25 (give or take a couple bucks) for a resort fee and there is no reason for it. The pool at the Fox tower is outside and not open at this time. You can use the other hotel pools, but you’d have to walk a mile to get there. No need for a resort fee. Pretty substantial hike to the Grand Pequot casino, so if you plan on spending more time in that casino, I’d suggest staying in the Pequot hotel. Overall, nice enough room for the price paid (even with the fee). Convenient to stay if you plan on a night of gambling.
Came to the hotel following a tortuous 6 hour ride from central NJ. Traffic was simply terrible and despite the many wanderings suggested by my GPS, there was no relief.
Arrived at the hotel and found the check in counter swamped. Line to check in about 20 deep and only two people working the desk. They were very efficient, but the hotel needs more help there.
The room was very clean and the bathroom, especially the shower, was great. Hot water with great force. Beds comfortable but there was a marked danger. There is a metal "bar" sticking out from the bed that is dangerous. Fortunately, we did not hit it. The bar is exposed as the box spring was not properly seated on the bed,
The furniture shows some wear, especially the bureau, the laminate across the top had seen much better days.
They offered a food and beverage package $100 credit which we used in a somewhat overpriced Italian restaurant. My wife enjoyed her meal, I did not.
For several hours now the room above us has been moving furniture it sounds and banging on walls and yelling at one another and we called security 3 times for this issue to be addressed. This began at 11pm. Now almost 3am it still continues. If your looking for R&R I don’t recommend staying here. As someone who runs a front desk at a five star hotel things like this are not thrown aside. Typically a noise complaint gets 3 strikes before eviction. I guess that is not the case here. Looks like I will be returning to MA and handing my money to MGM from now on. Shame.
