Don't be fooled by "East Hartford," as you could almost throw a rock to Hartford. The value is better than a hotel in town, and parking is free. If you want to walk to anything (restaurant, store, etc.), forget it. This hotel is not at all for walking anywhere, unless you work in one of the adjacent offices.
The roads are confusing and you can get on a highway going the wrong way fairly easily, so have a navigator or know what you are doing before you head out. We used the mapping program on our iPad, which helped a lot.
The King room we had was smaller than we typically see in a Hampton, but it was perfectly adequate. It was more like a room you would see in a larger city in terms of size. It was clean and well-maintained, though management would do guests a real favor by not using perfumed cleaning products. It took awhile to clear the air with the AC, after which, things were fine.
The staff seemed younger and less outgoing than the Hamptons we had just stayed in in Poughkeepsie and Lenox, which likely just requires additional training. There was no explanation of wifi, breakfast, etc. Fortunately, we have a lot of experience with the chain, so knew what to do.
We would stay here again. But Hampton, PLEASE get better coffee makers in all your properties. Yours are awful and the coffee is bad.
