From there, Mohegan Sun’s hotel has 1,200 spacious and elegantly appointed rooms and over 170 luxury filled suites. Thirty dining options, including the likes of Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain and Michael Jordan’s Steak House, as well as a 22,000 square-foot spa & fitness center and a 27,000 square-foot solarium with an indoor/outdoor pool and whirlpool, are just steps away as well.

In the fall of 2016, Mohegan Sun is also slated to open another hotel tower, Earth Tower, that will feature 400 deluxe guest rooms, indoor pool and fitness center and even more meeting space. For more information, visit: Earth Tower.
