We were pleased to be included in this smart overview of meeting planner options in Connecticut by Timothy Arnold on Meetings.net recently.

“Foxwoods is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and the hotel is amazing. The complex has about 2,300 rooms spread over five areas, but the majority of the rooms are in the Fox Tower and the Grand Pequod Tower. They put my entire 550-person group into the Fox Tower, which is just steps from the well laid out meeting space. On the ground level is the Premier Ballroom, a 47,000-square-foot space that divides into eight sections. The prefunction area is huge, with two three-story windows overlooking a large terrace. The second level has a few smaller breakrooms, and then there’s the 15,000-square-foot Celebrity Ballroom and some additional breakouts on the third level. It is all very compact and flexible, and I loved the signage they had throughout. Our group had all of the meeting space, which made it a great fit.
Once you are at Foxwoods, there’s really no need to go outside. The resort has six casinos (combined, it’s the second largest casino in North America) and while I’m very sensitive to smoke, I never smelled it while I was there. The banquet food was really good, and the complex includes at least 50 restaurants, ranging from huge outlets like Sugar Factory to quick service restaurants. It reminded me of the Venetian Palazzo complex in Las Vegas—an upscale resort with far more things to do than you have time for.”
