Tucked away in the forests of Connecticut,
Foxwoods Resort Casino simplifies the job
of meeting planners by offering everything
a group could need on site, all conveniently
within reach of New York City and Boston.
Ease of attendee movement, exceptional
catering and dining experiences, highly configurable meeting space, and a city’s worth
of after-hours shopping and entertainment
— it’s all here, in one resort destination.
The latest polls of meeting professionals
find that smaller destinations are preferred
for corporate meetings and events. Group-
oriented resorts like Foxwoods give groups
the chance to buckle down and collaborate
without distraction, but still provide the ame-
nities necessary for attendees to let loose
after hours. And those amenities go beyond
the typical — Lake of Isles golf club earned
a spot on Golf magazine’s 2015 list of “Top
100 Courses You Can Play,” and The Norwich
Spa at Foxwoods has 12 treatment rooms and
plenty of group-friendly relaxation areas,
including a poolside veranda.
Foxwoods’ meeting and event spaces
come in a wide variety of shapes, styles, and
sizes. Planners can take advantage of the
state-of-the-art technology in the resort’s
47,533-square-foot Premier Ballroom, the
largest ballroom in the Northeast, or host a
party for 1,200 people at the neighboring
Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research
Center, surrounded by ancient cedar forests.
Planners also have a variety of unique venues
to choose from on site, like the High Rollers
Luxury Lanes and Lounge, a bar and 20-lane
bowling alley suitable for functions of up to
Foxwoods’ collection of 36 restaurants
adds even more options to the venue mix.
Its fine-dining options — David Burke Prime,
Vue 24, Cedars Restaurant, Alta Strada, and
Red Lantern — all can accommodate groups.
Attendees can also grab a bite at one of 11
casual-dining restaurants, including well-known names like Guy Fieri’s Foxwoods
Kitchen + Bar, Sugar Factory, and Junior’s. Of
course, the Foxwoods experience wouldn’t
be complete without a turn at the tables. Its
casino, one of the largest in the country, has
every kind of game imaginable, from bingo
to high-stakes poker.
