Visited with my wife during a long 6,000 miles road trip from and to Chicago. The hotel is well placed in downtown next to Bushnell Park directly opposite the beautiful State Capitol building. It occupies 9 floors but only the top 4 or 5 floors on the front of the building have a view of the Capitol and these are... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and have nothing but positive things to say. The hotel is located directly across from the Capitol and within a short walk to anywhere you need to be in downtown Hartford. The rooms were clean and relatively modern with comfortable beds. Plenty of good food options for any budget, several trendy restaurants... More

it was a beautiful room with a great view of the capital. It was clean. When we asked for additional towels - they came immediately. Beds were comfortable and linen clean. Hotel staff very friendly. Must eat at the Alladin Halal for pizza - it was soooo good: thin crust,just the right amount of crunch and great flavor!!

We had chosen this on Booking.com, as we found a good rate for a couple nights. Too bad we weren't aware that parking was an additional $17 a day!! The staff knew I was there due to my father's passing, so they were mostly quite nice and did give me a nice room with a beautiful view of the capitol... More

This hotel was really nice! The rooms were clean and adequate and the beds were especially comfortable. I would have liked a better breakfast selection but I still would stay here again! The receptionists were extremely pleasant and helpful and greeted everyone with smiles and well wishes. Some floors were being worked on but there was no noise and those... More

The room was clean and updated, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the parking was convenient. I was a little hesitant to book because of the mixed reviews on TripAdvisor, but the hotel exceeded my expectations and was a great value! Oh, and the room had a fabulous view! Would definitely stay again!

This is a renovated Holiday Inn Express location and it is one of the better hotels I have stayed in in recent years. The whole place was immaculate. My room had an awesome view of the capital and park. This has to be one of the most convenient places for downtown Hartford access. The train and bus station are literally... More

This hotels location is what makes it so awesome and the fact that it's been totally renovated on the inside. The rooms are amazing the floors in the bathroom are so beautifully done you can't tell if the floor is wet or dry because of the way it shines. There are so many pluses for the price. Be sure to...

This has been a Red Roof Inn for about a month. It was formerly a LaQuinta. The first impression pulling into the parking lot was there were some nefarious characters hanging out at the entrance. Ok. Nothing big there. That happens in a lot of places. Walking into the lobby, it was large, well lit and clean. The front desk... More

I've worked in hospitality for the last 5 years and hotels for 2. I understand that people are humans and mistakes happen. But when a property makes this many errors in 12 hours I feel the need to tell others to set their expectations. Upon checking in I was told that my card would not be charged until I checked...
