Let’s start with the basics. What is a casino hotel. Simply put, it’s a hotel and casino in one location with lots of other options as well. We’re talking about entertainment, restaurants, spas, shopping, and more. And some casino hotels do it better than others. USA Today conducted their reader’s poll, and came up with the 10 Best Casino Hotels in the Country. The #1 casino hotel in the country is right here in New England.

How do you choose the best casino hotel for your needs? Some of the factors to take into consideration: location in case you want to leave your hotel to explore, room amenities (wifi, room service, comfortable beds, etc.), gaming options (variety of slots and table games), dining options (very important!), and reviews.

There are many casino hotels in New England. Foxwoods Resort & Casino is a popular casino in Mashantucket, CT. It has 9 million square feet, making it the largest casino resort in North America, and the fifth largest in the world. As far as the hotel, it has over a whopping 2,200 rooms. The first casino resort in Massachusetts is MGM Springfield which opened its doors in 2018. They have a lot less hotel rooms with 240, but they make up for that with the 2 million square feet of space that takes up 14 acres in three downtown city blocks. And another hugely popular casino hotel is Encore Boston Harbor in Everett. The $2.6 billion dollar resort casino opened in 2019. They have 671 rooms and suites over 27 floors.

As great as they are, none of those were crowned the best in the country, or even made the top 10. Read on to see the New England casino voted the #1 casino hotel in the U.S.
