My husband and I have stayed in the Farmington Inn when his company sent him to the town of Farmington for work-related classes. The rooms were clean and comfortable; the staff at the hotel is very friendly and accomodating. They host a continental breakfast in the morning, consisting of hard boiled eggs to waffles, and yogurts to fruits. The chamber of commerce is located right in the hotel to assist with anything you'd like to do in the area. There is a nice walk down Main Street, which allows you to view some incredible historic houses, some dating back to the 1600's, that take your breath away. It is located close enough to attractions that enable you to visit such places as the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe houses in nearby Hartford, and a semi-short drive to the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos about an hour away. The town was also a critical point in the underground railroad, hosting everything from Amistad gravesites to a French Revolution cemetery on a hillside (Momento Mori). You can also reach the ocean beaches of southern Connecticut in an hour as well. I recommend visiting the Hill-Stead Museum, which was left to everyone as a museum by the previous owner, one of the first women architects in the United States. For a small entry fee, you get to tour the home, which was built in 1898-1901, and view original artworks by various painters. All in all, for never have been in that area of the country before and getting to go there twice in a little over a month, I came back with a lot of nice memories, and would stay here again without hesitation.
