For the tower they named after themselves, the Pequot tribe that built the Foxwoods complex made it one of the dining and entertainment focal points of the whole property. The dramatically lit lobby centers around a tribal sculpture, and other design elements throughout nod to the native culture.
Celebrity chef David Burke has an upscale steakhouse here, where cuts of meat are aged on-site, and where the brunch service earned accolades from the readers of Connecticut magazine. Perhaps the fanciest restaurant in the area is also here. On the 24th floor of the hotel tower, Paragon has earned the AAA 4-Diamond award for a decade, its dining room offering expansive views over the surrounding forest, while its French-accented menu serves up bluefin tuna from Maine and clams from Narragansett Bay.
There are more casual restaurants nearby, along with the High Rollers bowling alley and lounge. Dazzling jewelry from Bulgari, Chopard and Judith Ripka are for sale in this hotel's upscale shopping hall, and there are two large casino floors. The Norwich Spa at Foxwoods is also here, with a tranquil indoor pool, salon and detoxifying treatments that employ native hot stones, caviar and collagen masks in a quest to eliminate stress.
