One of the most indulgent options for a casino resort getaway in the northeast, the Fox Tower at Foxwoods polishes up its four AAA Diamonds with plenty of upscale amenities and services. The dramatic circular lobby props up its triple-height ceiling with soaring granite columns. Head one way to reach one of several gaming floors, lit up with casino favorites from slots to blackjack. In another direction, removed from the dinging of the jackpot bell, is the soothing G Spa. Restorative treatments incorporate Sedona mud, Moroccanoil, and green tea. There are also “red carpet” makeup services for big nights.
A giant outdoor pool reflects the glass tower and surrounding 2,000-acre woods. Evening revelry begins at the Center Bar, which is warmed by a glass fireplace, and continues at Alta Strada, a gourmet Italian restaurant serving a range of dishes from rib eyes to tortellini. This tower is closest to the Grand Theater, which hosts top comic talent, such as Whoopi Goldberg and Carlos Mencia, and top musical acts, like Patti LaBelle and Harry Connick, Jr. In the evening, retreat to rooms done up in sleek navy and neutral colors, with burled wood furnishings that echo the sprawling forest coming in through picture windows.
