The Internet connection does not work with my company VPN, so I was not able to get any work done. This has never happened to me on 4 years of global travel using this VPN. The... More

I had a lovely but short visit to this hotel this past Sunday, 3/9/14. I arrived quite early (11:30am) and room wasn't ready, as they had a full house the previous night. Went to the restaurant next door. When I returned, still had a short wait. Karen the receptionist was just so friendly and considerate. We had a short conversation,... More

The hotel is right off I84 exit 48 and has great access. It is also has a great view from the breakfast room of the state house. The rooms are in good condition, the fixtures a little old, the floors / ceilings a little 'thin' - you can hear guests walking in the rooms above you. Breakfast is included and... More

The front desk staff (the PM GSA & AM GSA the next morning - same person) was very friendly... so, was the night auditor. (12/20-12-21) Housekeeping and... More

This hotel is located just across the street from Union Station. If you take the Bradley Flyer bus for $1.30 from the airport, instead of a $45 cab ride, you are just steps away. The staff at the desk, especially Ilanya, were all friendly and very helpful. We asked for a view of the capitol and were given a great... More

Downtown Hartford hotels are quite expensive, and this hotel is a great balance of price and accomodation. I've stayed here on three occassions, each 3-4 days in length, and always found a clean and quiet room awaiting. Unlike other hotels, I've never had the shower hot water run out--much appreciated! The included breakfast is a nice touch and decent, and... More
