Hotels at Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods are favorites of U.S. casino-goers
Hotels at Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resorts Casino were rated No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards, which annually survey casino-goers’ preferences.
It marked the second consecutive year in which Mohegan Sun was the top choice in the survey’s “Best Casino Hotel” category. Encore Boston Harbor, the Everett, Mass., resort casino that opened in June, was fifth in the rankings.
In the “Best Casino Outside Las Vegas” category, Foxwoods finished second and Mohegan Sun fifth. The category’s top choice was the Barona Resort & Casino in Lakeside, Calif., near San Diego. Encore was sixth.
Mohegan Sun’s Momentum rewards program ranked fifth in the “Best Players Club” category. Las Vegas-based Caesars Entertainment was the top choice.
“All three recognitions are truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of our amazing team here in southeastern Connecticut,” Ray Pineault, Mohegan Sun’s president and general manager, said of his casino’s rankings.
Mohegan Sun’s first-place honor in the hotel category comes on the heels of its recent launch of Aspire, a high-end area on the upper floors of the casino’s Sky Tower hotel.
Nominees for USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards were selected by a panel of experts. Readers voted over a four-week period.
