I was pleasantly surprised upon entering the room. Nice large and cozy rooms. I did not hear hallway noise or noise from outside. The hotel will even do grocery shopping if you prefer to prepare and cook your food in the room.

We recently stayed here for just one night for a wedding. We hated to leave, because we could have stayed for a week. This was not a hotel room, but a condo, with a full size kitchen, living room area and upstairs loft bedroom with full bath. The hotel was recently--very recently as in they were just finishing--- renovated. Everything... More

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean, spacious "home away from home" while in downtown Hartford, CT. The rooms are huge, larger than some apartments. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher. The bedroom is five steps up and has a king-size bed, large closet with mirrored... More

First, I have to say I have never seen a GM office right next to the check in desk and the door is always open. I had a small problem during my stay and it was resolved above and beyond my expectation. Second, the hotel just went through a renovation, I am not sure if all rooms are the same... More

The service at the front desk is excellent! The representatives greeted me and made me feel welcomed, one employee in particular was Constance. She was extra jolly but it wasn't too much. I would definitely come back

I rarely write a bad review, but I travel a lot for business and this stay warranted mention. I am not a high-maintenance traveler. I understand they are undergoing renovations, however the facility was under par for the cost. First, there are several doors to negotiate manually from the street. Since no one greets you, I was left to handle... More

Two times I've stayed. 6 months apart. Each with family, including support animal. Mark the GM has made sure we are well taken care of, that his staff knows we are coming and that we are valued Marriott customers. The staff is clearly very well trained and they do a good job selecting people to represent their brand. I will... More

The hotel was going through renovations but it seemed dirty in the lobby and disconnected. Felt more like a motel than a hotel. The halls and elevators needed to be vacuumed. The entrances both front and back were rundown and the hotel underground parking lot very dank and dirty. Disappointed with the cost verses the value.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a trial for work and it was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are huge and perfect for setting up a working "war room." The location of the hotel in downtown Hartford is ideal as you can walk to any stores, restaurants, etc. that you may need.... More

This hotel was being refurbished, and with a good reason. Getting through the doors are like taking a trip to the fifties. My room was very big, almost an apartment with a complete kitchen and the bed/restroom area elevated from the rest of the room. Strange but nice. The reception is a joke, but the service was fine and the... More

Thank You for your valued feedback. We are nearing the end of a full hotel renovation which includes all guestrooms and the lobby space of the property. I apologize for the inconvenience you encountered with the location of the front desk reception and the breakfast space. Both were temporary while we renovate the existing front desk and breakfast areas. We... More
