Sun Accepting Reservations For Its New Hotel
CT - In anticipation of opening its luxury 34-story, 1,200-room
hotel in mid-April, Mohegan
Sun, a premier entertainment, gaming and meeting destination
on the East Coast, is now taking reservations. The hotel's opening
will mark the completion of Mohegan
Sun's $1.1 billion "Project Sunburst'' expansion, the largest
private development on the East Coast.
Designed by the Atlanta-based interior design firm Hirsch Bedner
Associates, the guestrooms and suites were created with the needs
of both business and leisure travelers in mind. The elegantly appointed
rooms will feature deluxe amenities, including three, two-line telephones
with dataports and voice mail; full-size working desk area with
ergonomic chair; oversized lounging chair with ottoman; in-room
refreshment and entertainment center, including web and e-mail access,
video in-room dining menus and ordering, bill review and check-out
accessibility; and a state-of-the-art electronic security entry
system. In addition, all guestrooms will feature views of either
the Thames River or the scenic New England countryside.
River suites average 872 square feet and feature a spacious bedroom,
1 1/2 baths and separate living room space. The hotel's one-bedroom
Sky suites, perfect for intimate cocktail parties, average 1,110
square feet and feature a deluxe king bed, 1 1/2 baths with special
windowed-bath overlooking the foothills of southeastern Connecticut,
and separate living and dining areas.
Reservations for the hotel's guestrooms and suites can be made by
calling 1-888-772-7922. Rates vary based on time of year, and exciting
getaway, dining and entertainment packages are also available.
Sun, owned by The Mohegan Tribe, is one of the largest,
most distinctive and spectacular gaming and entertainment destinations
in the United States. Mohegan
Sun opened the Casino of the Earth in 1996 and the exciting,
new Casino of the Sky in September 2001. With the expansion, Mohegan
Sun offers 315,000 square feet of gaming space, more than 40 new
retail shops and dining venues ranging from food court-style to
gourmet, a 10,000-seat arena featuring world-class sporting events
and concerts, and an intimate cabaret. Mohegan Sun's evolution will
continue with the opening of a 34-story luxury hotel, featuring
1,200 hotel rooms, premier meeting and convention space and a world-class
spa, in Spring 2002.
