We stayed here during the Winterfest volleyball tournament, along with a number of other teams from the Northeast US. The hotel was very busy that weekend, but that didn't seem to phase the staff at all. We were greeted pleasantly when we checked in, which was nice after the hectic drive through downtown Hartford traffic. We had asked for a room with a king size bed and a cot for our daughter. The cot was not in the room when we arrived, but was delivered shortly after we checked in. My wife ate at the restaurant the first night while my daughter and I went to the first night activities at the convention center. The two of us had room service when we returned, which was a thrill for my daughter.
Our team had to play in the early pools on the first day, and the hotel restaurant was not open by the time we had to leave. Luckily, we were able to find something to eat at the convention center. That was the only glitch in our stay. A number of the players (and their families) had lunch in the restaurant when we returned, and we got to watch the throngs of UConn fans walk by after the basketball game finished.
On our second day, the team decided that we wanted to order pizza in rather than attempting to find a downtown restaurant that could take 20-30 people at once. The staff was happy to open up a meeting room for us to use, which was very much appreciated by all.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay here.
