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.
