I decided to take my wife away for a Saturday night using my Hilton Honors points. I chose Hartford because we'd never been there and it was within driving distance for us. Booking was done online using my points. We arrived at about 4 pm for check in. There were a lot of people walking around with U Michigan shirts on so I knew something was up. It turned out it was the U Michigan UConn football game day and we stumbled on it. Didn't matter, check in was great. Easy and efficient. The lobby is nicely appointed. We were given a room on the 20th floor. Nice sized room, very clean, efficiently sized bathroom. Very comfortable. Great night for sleeping too. The location seemed nice but it was a Saturday afternoon/evening and it's a business district so it was a bit quiet. It was close to the XL Center though so if you're attending an event it would be conveniently located. My only gripe was the dining experience (which is for another review) at the M&M Cafe in the lobby. Would definitely stay again if traveling to Hartford.
