UNCASVILLE, CT—As construction progresses on Mohegan Sun’s 400-room, $130-million Earth Tower opening in fall 2016, the hotel has made plans for a two-year, $50-million renovation project for the Sky Tower. The existing 1,200-room hotel was introduced in 2002.
Part of this initiative includes a multimillion-dollar revamp and rebranding of the property’s existing spa, combined with a completely new Mandara Spa build-out as part of the new Earth Tower.
The Sky Renovation project, estimated at $50 million overall once completed, will encompass standard and junior suite room renovations including new carpeting, wallcovering, casework, furniture and fabrics. The rooms will also feature a brand new e-tray arrangement in lieu of a minibar, as well as an iPad, providing a variety of services for guests including a compendium, thermostat adjustments, room service ordering and TV control.
For guests’ convenience, a motion-detecting light will be installed under the end tables and will turn on automatically once guests step out of bed, according to the company. The hotel corridors and lobby furniture will also be updated as part of the project.
