Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT, USA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT USA
Staying at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut was the perfect winter weekend getaway. We stayed for the weekend at the Mohegan Sun in late January 2022 to attend their 18th annual Mohegan Sun - Sun Wine & Food Festival. Over the course of three days, we were able to "discover" much that this stunning property offers.

Located on 185 acres, Mohegan Sun opened in 1996, and has continued to grow and expand its offerings for guests making it a world-class destination with sumptuous guestrooms, a diverse selection of restaurants that range from fine dining to more casual fare, Mandara Spa, pool, fitness center, golf course, casino, excellent shopping, and a plethora of entertainment and events.

The Mohegan Sun has two hotel towers, the Sky Tower, which has 1,200 well-appointed and elegant guestrooms (200 of which are suites) and at 34-stories, it is Connecticut's tallest building, and the Earth Tower, built in 2016, which has an additional 400 guestrooms (39 of which are suites).

We stayed at the hotel from January 28 - 30, 2022 in the Sky Tower, where we stayed on the 29th floor and watched the green winter landscape turn into a white winter wonderland with snow swirling in the air and snow drifts covering the formerly barren ground from the wall of windows.

Our attractive and spacious Deluxe King guestroom in the Sky Tower was a welcome respite between the exciting weekend festival events. The guestroom featured an inviting king bed dressed in sumptuous linens and a plethora of pillows, with a cream leather and wood headboard, flanked by nightstands and sconces perfect for bedtime reading.

There was a high tufted-back love seat which was a pull-out sofa, a large marble topped desk with a comfortable velvet chair, and a real philodendron plant on a metal stand to add a bit of greenery to the room. Attractive artwork graced the walls, along with a large television positioned over the combination refreshment center with a coffeemaker, well-stocked mini-bar, and mini-refrigerator.

There was a safe in the closet, which also had a full-length mirror on the inside door, and an iron and ironing board. The spacious marble bathroom had a separate enclosed toilet, an assortment of toiletries, a vanity mirror, ceiling light, hairdryer, and combination tub with shower. Other hotel amenities included an in-room iPad and free parking.

Mohegan Sun has an excellent variety of restaurants to appeal to diverse palates. During our stay we had a wonderful dinner at the new restaurant, TAO Asian Bistro & Lounge, (TAO Group) located just off the Sky Tower Hotel Lobby. The restaurant is stunning and focuses on Asian-inspired specialties, and Chinese, Japanese, and Thai techniques. We thoroughly enjoyed our selections of Filet Mignon "Tokyo: Style with marrow, mushroom, and onion, Thai Sweet and Spicy Shrimp with tamarind and bell pepper, and Olive Fried Rice with olive leaf, haricot verts, and trumpet mushrooms.
