Why We Love It

  • A hive for some of the fun, family-friendly shops as well as cost-effective restaurants
  • The original Foxwoods hotel

Rooms & Rates

The Great Cedar Hotel started it all at Foxwoods -- it was the first building to rise in this 2,000-acre patch of Connecticut woods, the cornerstone to what is now the largest casino-resort complex in the Western Hemisphere. Although new hotels and venues have popped up across the property, Great Cedar remains central to many of Foxwoods' dining and entertainment options. The hotel is home to the Great Cedar Casino, one of the largest and liveliest gaming floors at the resort, and also anchors a row of fun, family-friendly clothing and gift shops.

Great Cedar is one of the more affordable options for staying the night at Foxwoods, and most rooms have nearly floor-to-ceiling windows looking out at the wilderness. There's an indoor pool and the Fox Theater, which brings in comedy acts, boxing matches, and game shows. This hotel tower is close to popular, casual restaurants like California Pizza Kitchen and Hard Rock Cafe.
