The hotel was apparently recently renovated, but I think that may only apply to the lobby and front desk area. Granted, those areas were nice, and I had no issues with any of the staff of the service at the property. But my room seemed very outdated and while it wasn't dirty, it just felt old. The positive is that... More

Boris K, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm thrilled that you found our Residence Inn Hartford clean and our location ideal. Our building is a historic Hartford landmark designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and was constructed in 1876. It's quite distinctive and unlike any other Residence Inn. As you noted, we did just complete a... More

Do yourself a favor and book this hotel. The staff here was almost shockingly nice. I have to admit I was taken back. Everyone is friendly. Everyone. I almost felt like I was staying at a friends house I knew for years. The decor is very very nice and the rooms are HUGE! Do yourself a favor and spend a... More

Stayed here for Thanksgiving. 2 br, 2 bedroom. Fully equipped modern kitchen was great for baking last minute food items. View from this particular room wasn't great. Close to everything downtown Hartford. Layout of room was awesome, one of the best Residence Inns by far

My husband and I stayed 2 nights over Thanksgiving as our daughter and her family live walking distance away. We were pleasantly surprised with the updated decor. The room,as always was very spacious as it is set up like a small apartment with separate bedroom and full kitchen facilities. We also noticed that the room has been enhanced for business... More

The Residence Inn is a first-class hotel. What separates this hotel from the rest is, by and large, the service. Just like most high quality hotels, the Residence Inn rooms are spacious and the amenities are amazing. But, it is the employees that make this establishment the best place to say in Hartford, Ct. All of the employees, from the... More

Due to availability, our room was upgraded to a one bedroom + loft suite. The suite was recently remodeled and was very well appointed and very clean. The hotel was in close proximity to Trinity College and so was ideal for our one night stay during Trinity College's family weekend. Downtown was rather sleepy on a weekend night, but many... More

Each room booked had a loft bedroom with a living/dining/kitchenette below. All of our guests commented on the great space as well as the convienence to everything in Hartford.... More

The Residence Inn was a lovely hotel. The rooms were very big and made it great for a longer stay. The service was also wonderful. Donald, who was my shuttle driver, gave me excellent service. He was always very prompt and had a smile on his face at all times. They also had a grocery store service since there wasn't... More

I have now stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown Hartford for 6 weeks on business, two stays for three weeks in a row at a time. The staff has been amazingly kind and helpful in any circumstance and made it easier to be living away while on business for such an extended period of time. They are also very accommodating...
