This hotel has pretty grounds set in a nice part of the general Hartford area. My family stayed here in part because there was a great deal to be had, and in part because many of the better deals in Hartford require staying either near the airport or in less scenic parts of the area.
This is a very nicely located hotel if one is going to events in the Avon/Farmington area. It's less convenient if you just need a place to stay off the interstate for the evening, or need to make repeated trips into downtown Hartford or its environs (Trinity College, etc) during the day.
The decor could use a touch up in places, but otherwise the rooms were spacious. There are some treats for breakfast (not widely advertised, at least to us).
Our only real complaint was that the internet connection was painstakingly, drop me from websites slow. Easily the slowest of any hotel in over a week of travels.
