The Mohegan Sun Connecticut Casino Hotel
Would-be players will very easily be able to find the Mohegan Sun casino hotel, situated at 1 Mohegan Sun Boulevard in Connecticut since the 12th of October 1996. There are more than 1 000 rooms available in the Native American theme the venue has adopted, and the arena and radio services it provides can be said to be some of the main attractions. Guests in search of a good meal will not be disappointed either, thanks to Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse; Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville and Hash-a-go-go, and, thanks to the renovations which took place in 2001 and 2002, the most modern finishes are there to be enjoyed too.
