The Goodwin Hotel

#2 of 12 hotels in Hartford
The Goodwin story began in 1881, when two brothers, James J. Goodwin and Rev. Francis Goodwin, developed this classic structure as a landmark apartment building. Originally developed as an upscale apartment building and later converted to a hotel, The Goodwin was a classic and prestigious address from the start. With a star-studded history, characters like J.P. Morgan resided there during visits to his hometown, and it has retained its sophistication and appeal ever since. The hotel was converted in the late 1980s in conjunction with the Goodwin Square project, its façade was preserved from the apartment building, and has become an iconic Hartford landmark. For its 2017 rebirth, The Goodwin will exude a vibrant City style, while retaining elements of its history, heritage and tradition to demonstrate the authentic character that makes it so special. Guest rooms have been re-imagined. Interior spaces have been thoughtfully designed as welcoming gathering areas. Original fireplaces remain, built-in wood closets restored. The entire staff has been classically trained in the lost art of service and hospitality. And a world-class brasserie adds to the unmistakable Goodwin experience. Cosmopolitan and urban-chic…yet grounded in a timeless and rich history. Welcome to the only boutique hotel in Hartford.

Y'all, I know this place might seem a little more on the expensive side, but I cannot urge you enough to splurge for it. Not only is this in a very nice location, the amenities, the rooms, and the staff are better than any of the other hotels I've stayed in in Hartford for

I had to cancel my reservation due to travel delays and the hotel manager was extremely helpful. She went above and beyond, providing excellent customer service. Service like this is hard to find nowadays.

Wonderful hotel located in downtown Hartford. Great if you are attending any events downtown. The hotel rooms are beautiful, a true oasis and far above standard hotels. They offer you coffee and donuts in the morning in their lovely bar/library. The donuts are worth it but
