“Location, Location and yes, good Location plus fun staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I love history so this hotel really has the best of the past in it and lots of good options for restaurants in the area, walking distance to the amazing State Capitol, museus and more. Used hotel for a 50 person meeting in The Arches room that is also part of the Howard Catering system they have there. The room has interesting "funky" art and a lay out that is refreshing after typical rectangular boxy hotel meeting spaces. Have a look in the lobby at some of the memorabilia from days gone by - they have items from when it was The Bond hotel in the early 1900's - and yes...the room rates back then were.... "wait for it"... $1.50. It then went up to $2.50 one year. The desk staff said they will be doing a big renovation in 2014 that will be done floor by floor. They described the new freight elevator that was installed to keep the renovation out of the public eye - smart. The rooms were exceptionally clean, but I do agree that a change in colors and updating will add to the value of a modern day hotel. Used the business center for last minute printing needs. The people who were staying over also had a free evening gathering in the lobby food area with beer and wine as well as salad, stuffed peppers and garlic bread was had. Parking was $16 - but in the search did not find any hotel in Hartford with a lower price (in fact some were higer up to $21). I have three meeitngs in 2014 I will likely use the hotel for - location is great.

This is a good, solid, mid-level hotel. The room was clean and well-appointed, the daily free breakfast had many options and the area was immaculate and well-supplied. The hotel staff was universally warm, helpful and very attentive. The location can't be beat.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the capitol.

The room was excellent and the staff was very helpful. The location is very good as well, except that it's near a number of bars and around 1am we could hear the police outside asking people to go home. I'm not sure if it was a regular occurrence, or if you can only hear it from the side of the hotel we were on, but it was hard to sleep as a result. In general, the hotel is very good and I would stay there again.

The staff at this hotel try to accommodate your every wish. They were terrific. Accommodations were fine and meals certainly adequate. Staff was quick to fix any problems. Parking is extra $ so watch that. All in all, great place to stay. Within walking distance of restaurants and stores.

Great hotel in the center of Hartford. We were pleased with quality of our 2 bedroom suit. Location is perfect with fantastic view of Capitol building. One block away from RR station and few blocks away from financial district with many good restaurants.

Great Experience. My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night after the Justin Timberlake Concert at the XL Center. The staff was super friendly and helpful as soon as we walked in. Check-in & Check-out was fast and easy. We had a great room with a view of the city & it was very clean and smelled fresh. We were very pleased with the convenience of its location, as well as the amenities they offered. I would definitely stay here again.
