MASHANTUCKET, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This week the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, owners of Foxwoods Resort Casino, announced the launch of The Fox Tower at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The Fox Tower is located on the west side of the resort and was formerly known as the MGM Grand at Foxwoods.
“This transition is the first of many changes and development taking place at the resort”
“This transition is the first of many changes and development taking place at the resort,” said Vice President of Resort Operations, Jason Guyot. “We are proud to announce this new name as it speaks to the Tribe’s long and storied history as the ‘Fox People’ and reconfirms our commitment to what the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe created over 22 years ago”.
The Fox Tower, a AAA Four-Diamond award recipient, will continue to provide the same dynamic environment and deliver the same quality experience for guests, employees and partners that have made it one of the premier entertainment destinations in the Northeast.
The renaming of the tower is part of an overall campaign to reinvigorate the brand that will include new developments, promotions and improvements to the property. The Grand Pequot Tower renovation is nearing completion, a new food court has been opened in Great Cedar Square and full-scale retail renovations are underway with an expected completion of July 2014. Construction on the Tanger Outlet Mall at Foxwoods is progressing and scheduled to open in May 2015.
Back in October 2013 the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation concluded their partnership with MGM Resorts International.
About the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation
The Mashantucket Pequots are a native Algonquin people in southeastern Connecticut who endured centuries of conflict and survive today on the oldest continuously occupied reservation in the U.S., dating to its establishment in 1666. As the first native people within the borders of the continental United States to suffer attempted genocidal massacre by Puritan Colonists in 1637, the Pequots and their repatriation is an unprecedented story of restoration exhibited in detail at the Tribe’s world-class Museum and Research Center (www.pequotmuseum.org).
