Mystic CT - Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Spent 4 nights at the Mystic Hilton. We were very pleased with the hotel, all recently renovated and looking spiffy. The package included full buffett breakfast each morning and free admission to the Acquarium. The location was excellant, directly across from the Acquarium and Old Mystic Village.

We also explored downtown Mystic and had a very good seafood lunch at the S&P Oyster Company, overlooking the Mystic River and the drawbridge which is raised each hour.

Visited the Mystic Seaport, had lunch at the Seaman's Inn, very atmospheric but very light food.

Had dinner at Go Fish and the Steak Loft, both were good for what they were. Not gourmet but not very expensive either.

Spent a day at the Mohegian Sun and found it to be a very upscale property.

The Hilton offered a free shuttle to Foxwoods but we were unimpressed with the entire experience of the casio, no comparison to Mohegian. Incidentially, the Mystic Hilton is owned by Foxwood, along with several other Mystic hotels.

We took the Amtrak down and had no problem navigating without a car. The Hilton provided free pickup and dropoff at the Amtrak station. We yellow cabbed it to downtown, the seaport and Mohegian. All in all a very pleasant experience, the weather helped, it was high 70's most of the week with no humidity and brilliant sunshine.
