“Downtown hotel with a restaurant next door.”
Reviewed July 14, 2007

Stayed here because it was convenient to the end of a long day on the road (family vacation) and pet-friendly. This is a large multi-story property in what seems the middle of downtown New Britain. The staff was pleasant, the room was large and clean and the breakfast buffet was plentiful. The elevator was baulky - sometimes didn't want to go to the 5th floor - front desk staff told me there was a refurbishment in the works for that. There's really nowhere to walk to from here and you probably don't want to (although police headquarters is next door). Hotel is directly connected to Famous Dave's BBQ restaurant, which turned out to be a delicious meal the end of the day. Overall a good value if you happen to be in the area.

  • Liked — Famous Dave's is really convenient.
  • Disliked — Elevator was a little cranky

$79 for a perfectly decent room is the main highlight, a real bargain. However, I had trouble sleeping because of the badly designed Amana cooling unit. To maintain cooling, it cycles between on and completely off, unlike better units that cycle between fan only and fan+compressor. The result was utter silence, then the incredibly loud Amana, then silence, then the Amana etc. repeated all night long.

  • Liked — Inexpensive and well maintained
  • Disliked — Noisy Amana air condtioning system

We made last minute plan to visit Hartford and realized that all the hotels in or around downtown area didn't have any room available. We could not find a hotel with a decent review close by, and decided on La Quinta since we always seemed to have good experience with them.

The hotel is right off I-84, about 10 miles out of Hartford, and very easy to find. When we got there, the express check-in was already in place, so we were sent to our room within a minute. The staffs were very nice.

The elevator is a bit old, but the rooms are obviously newly renovated. Very fresh, modern decor, comes with a small fridge (no freezer) and microwave. The bed is very comfortable. The counter top and the bathtub wall are beautiful granite. Of course there is also the big office desk, free high-speed internet, and a small chair for reading at the corner. Overall, we were very impressed, consider the amount of money we paid for the room.

The free breakfast is nothing fancy, but have enough variety. Finally, there is a "Famous Dave's" bbq place in the hotel. We didn't have a chance to check it out, but the menu looked good.
