Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Read above.
Location: Didn't look near by attractions as we were staying there because it was close to Hartford Hospital.
Minimal amenities in room as in no lotion, tissue (which had to be asked for) was a little travel package. The in-room heater did not work. The drain in the shower was slow leaving me standing in at least 1 inch of water during the entire time I showered. You were "given" 2 tiny bars of soap and 1 small bottle of shampoo/conditioner. There were minimal tv channels available. The continental breakfast left much to be desired. Muffins were very small and not much else but some fruit. The staff was nice and the evening maintenance man did everything he could to make things better which included getting me a remote control that made sense (the one I had made no sense and did not work well). The man is a saint!

Horrible Experience

A lady came to room at 8am on the day of checkout pretending to be housekeeping. No cart, cleaning supplies, badge, nothing. So obviously I refused to open the door. She came back a few minutes later, this time she claimed to be the manager, of course I'm still skeptical so I refuse yet again to open the door. Well, she called the police.....what??? How are you housekeeping and the manager and since when does housekeeping come at 8am in the day you're checking out?!?! When I asked her what the problem was she said "I don't have a reason right now" ok so you were just targeting me? No worries, I'll NEVER return to your stupid hotel!!

I've stayed here on a couple of occasions with my husband and children. We have always enjoyed or stay here. Rooms are always clean, it's nice and quiet and comfortable. Only thing I wish they would add is maybe bagels or something for breakfast other just muffins and mini danish. But not the end of the world since there's a dunking donuts across the street.

It's like the place is brand new. The room is very comfortable and just the right size. You can't beat the location especially if you need to get on the train, bus or get to the airport the next day.

Great view of cptl bldg. Nice park.

Posted Dec 19, 2016
Pros: Pleasant staff. Clean rooms. Updated bathroom.
Cons: Tea should have milk. It's kinda basic. And it can't possibly cost that much. People should be told ahead about the charge for parking.
Location: Great restaurant across the street. Hot Tomatoes. Best tuna I've ever had. Across street, train station has subway and Dunkin Donuts. Pretty park/view
Except for the fact that they didn't have milk for the tea they provided, I found the place very pleasant and clean. However they really should tell you ahead that it's $17./ day to park there. It's a hidden cost that shouldn't be hidden. Also, there seem to be a lot of homeless folks right in the parking lot.

Very noisy even after 11pm on 5th floor. We were taking the CFA exam so this hotel is the nearest one to our test location.
