“Beware of the parking lot!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

I'm not writing about the actual hotel stay. I am writing to warn others of the unsafety of their parking lot.
The night of January 23, 2012 not only our but 3 cars with New York plates had their windows shattererd and items stolen from their cars. GPS was taken.

Hotels need to take extra safety measures when they knows cars are being broken into to steal GPS units.
Take EVERYTHING out of your cars here. Do not leave GPS under your seat..the crooks know this.

Hotel room itself- fine. But paying $135 per night when you wake up to shattered glass, items stolen and $600 repair bills..Not worth it.
Clearly the hotel has known about these break-ins for quite some time. But where is the security????

Stayed January 2012, traveled on business

My king bed room was on the 5th floor. Very clean. Comforter covers are changed for each guest. Reception staff was friendly. Coffee offered 24 hours but gets cool during off-hours. Buffett breakfast offered, but I had to leave before it was served. I paid $97 all inclusive, and I had HHonors membership.

Room Tip: My HHonor membership seemed to get me a top floor, quiet room.

Stayed here for 5 nights late October 2011. The hotel was easy & quick to find off of I-91 South. It's either a newer hotel or fully remodeled, so it was nice & clean, etc.
Free breakfast with ample seating in the mornings. Definitely a good way to start a workday if you're traveling.
The room was plenty spacious for a single queen bed. Although no fridge was a bummer seeing as we stayed for so many nights.. My only complaint was that I didnt get new towels & soaps one day. I notified the fornt desk and they took care of it, I was staying on the 5th floor and apparently the housekeeper skimped on that floor.
Pros: comfortable bed, nice bathroom, TV etc
Cons: internet (wifi) pretty much unusable until after 9PM, no fridge in the room

Room Tip: ask for one of the suites so you can get a fridge for your cold ones!

The rooms were great, the service was great, we were really made to feel at home. The breakfasts were filling and we were pretty happy with our stay.
Easy to walk across the river into Hartford, good access to the interstate.

I stayed at the Hampton for one night while on a business trip. This is a traditional Hampton - clean rooms, decent wifi speed, and good proximity to downtown Hartford.

We stayed during the blackout one night, so we were lucky to find a room. The room we very small and had none of the amenities that I loved at the Hampton Inn. It was clean and safe, so that was what was needed.

This is long overdue but tripadvisor just sent me an email and made me think about doing this. My daughter and I traveled to Hartford for another concert this summer and the obvious choice of hotels was this one. Everything was just as wonderful as last time - service, room, breakfast and location. We once again walked to the concert venue and walked back at 11:00 PM with no problems.

This really is a convenient hotel to visit Hartford as it is located next to the pedestrian bridge that takes you right into the downtown area. The Science center is enjoyable and walking around that area at night at Christmas time is fun with all the lights.

Free parking is a plus as well, since most city hotels charge. In short, you can't go wrong with this hotel - enjoy your stay!
