Mattress Concierge completed the replacement of mattresses for 1,948 hotel rooms, totaling 2,600 mattresses, at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The largest resort casino in North America, Foxwoods offers a premier resort experience.
The project started in 2019, when the resort was upgrading its Grand Pequot Tower, with 23 floors of deluxe rooms and suites. Then Mattress Concierge replaced the mattresses in The Great Cedar Hotel and The Villas, which boast butler service. In two months, from order to delivery, 1,700 mattresses were handcrafted, delivered and installed. COVID-19 delayed the completion of the project, but, this September, Mattress Concierge replaced 900 additional mattresses for the 30-floor Fox Tower.
“At Foxwoods we pride ourselves on providing our guests with the ultimate destination experience, and knew how important it was that the sleep configuration was as thoughtfully considered as every other resort amenity,” said Chris O’Connell, vice president of Hotel Operations, Foxwoods. “We were so impressed by the attention to detail in Mattress Concierge’s hand-crafted, comfortable and durable mattresses which made them the ideal partner. They offer our guests a luxurious sleep experience that enhances their stay while at Foxwoods.”
Mattress Concierge has provided mattresses to luxury hospitality clients since 2010, even custom designing mattresses to meet hotel owners’ needs.
“We are honored with the trust Foxwoods Resort Casino places in Mattress Concierge to furnish their guests with the ultimate sleep experience at any hotel on the property,” Rob Richards, managing director, Mattress Concierge, said. “We are particularly pleased with the fact that we could meet the timeframes in which this multi-stage project required for completion. Following the executive purchasing team’s visit to the factory in Hartford, we earned the right to be the exclusive mattress supplier to the largest resort casino in North America.”

Based on their respective locations and divergent personalities, it’s inevitable there will be New York vs. Los Angeles (or San Francisco) comparisons when discussing the South Korean cities of Seoul and Busan. While Seoul is known as the nation’s business and government hub, Busan is defined by its coastline, beaches, cliffs, mountains and a slower — but by no means sleepy — pace. The city’s public hot springs, historic temples, ornate parklands, regional South Korean flavors and spins on global trends (like craft beer) also distinguish it from its Western counterparts.
