The Great Cedar Hotel puts guests steps away from some of the most popular gaming, dining, and entertainment the Foxwoods Resort Casino has to offer. Comfortable rooms and suites welcome guests for a restful night after a long day of play. Families will make memories sharing a meal at the Hard Rock Cafe Foxwoods, enjoying a treat from The Gelato Cafe, and battling against one another in a virtual reality adventure in the Great Cedar Concourse. Couples and friends can play a variety of slots and table games at the Great Cedar Casino, including the immersive PLAY Arena @ Foxwoods.

Each 375-square-foot Deluxe Room comes with either one king-sized bed or two queen-sized beds, refrigerator, coffee maker, writing desk, vanity area, and combination bathtub and shower. The hotel’s 900 square-foot, one-bedroom suites include a king-sized bed, half bath, master bath with Jacuzzi tub and glass shower, and living room with entertainment center and bay window. The suites also include a wet bar with a refrigerator and coffee maker.

The Trails provide a scenic route to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center, a nonprofit institution part of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. The museum features more than 300,000 square feet of permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as a 320-seat auditorium, classrooms, restaurant, and shop.
