Doubletree used to be pretty fancy. Maybe they still are in certain parts of the country (world?). But here in 'Windsor Locks' - on the outskirts of Hartford - the place is fairly standard hotel fare.
To the good news, they are just down the way from the airport. Seriously. It might even be at the end of the runway. But you really cannot hear the planes. Not sure how they pull off that one, but they do.
You also get a cookie. You can even get extras - other than the one that you get upon check-in - just by asking (but you do have to ask). That is nice. But I am not sure if it is worth it.
Access to the freeway is good too.
But other than that, you are a bit out if you need to get to Hartford (or anywhere else, really), and it reminds me of a beach hotel in that they seem to be rather run-down. Refrigerators line the hallways in the mornings, presumably from guests who used them the night before. Work is apparently underway on some renovations, but I am not sure that they can do much about the location or the overall appearance of the place.
