I was in New Haven for a job interview and the university bringing me in arranged and paid for my staying here. It is in an ideal location, right next to a major freeway. The parking lot seems a bit small, although signs said there was more parking on the other side of the building. The lobby area is beautiful and the desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool looked inviting but I don't swim. The room was quite spacious although the window faces out to a corridor so there is no view to the outside. There are two concerns in particular: first is that the heating/AC unit is set at the back of the room and so it is somewhat inefficient in getting the heat or AC out to the front of the room. Second, the shower head was a little bit inadequate and at the same time the tub tends to fill with water because the drain doesn't stay open fully. There is a restaurant adjacent but I didn't eat there. There are plenty of dining options not far from the hotel, especially an abundance of pizza joints. I stayed two nights and felt safe and comfortable. One warning: the mattress was very firm and I found it too hard for my liking. Still, I was very satisfied with my stay and I would recommend this hotel.
