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

It was clean and safe. The gym is nice with wipes for the machines and spring water and the pool is year round and clean. My room was a good size, very clean and quiet the 1st nite. The a/c unit got loud the second nite but a bang quieted things down. Hot water was awesome with a clean shower,... More

we had the pleasure of staying of this lovely hotel with amazing views in December 2012. The staff were amazing and our room was very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they went out of their way to help us and give us as much information as possible

Stayed there this past Friday night for marathon the next morning. Awesome location right across the street from Bushnell Park. Great view of the capital building. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was good the next morning. Workout room and business center were a plus. The only negative I could say was the $16 for parking.

He was also helpful in suggesting places for drinks and things to do. The room was very comfortable and... More

A friend and I stayed at this hotel as we were ending a very long road trip and simply needed to rest. After an unfortunate mix-up with booking through Hotwire.com, the staff here were very sympathetic to our situation and were very kind and courteous to us. We were blocked into rm 410 which is a dbl/dbl room with an... More

On a recent trip to Hartford, we spent one night at the Holiday Inn Express Hartford-Downtown.
