The location of this hotel (right next to the train station) and the low price (compared to other Hartford hotels) were what attracted me. I also liked that it had a shuttle in to businesses in town in the morning. There is free internet that worked fine in my room. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. However, there was no hot water in the morning in the shower. The comforter smelled of cigarette smoke. There was no bathroom counter (instead a pedestal sink) so that made getting ready in the morning inconvenient. My bedroom faced the parking lot and there were loud dumpster sounds that woke me randomly throughout the night. I had to wait 30 minutes to check in because there was a long line and only one person handling check ins (although there was another computer and another staffer in the office.) Also my coworkers told me the hotel was in a sketchy part of town and advised against walking back there after dinner.
