Has the fitness center been updated in recent years? I stopped staying because the eliptical machine was so old and run down.

From when I parked my car right to checking in at the front desk, I was amazed at the speed and friendliness getting to my room. Getting online was simple, the gym was my first stop & they had all the equipment I needed. The dinner buffet and complimentary wine was an added bonus, and was delicious. After a great nights sleep & friendly wake up call, breakfast was awesome & then the Hotel shuttle service to my business meeting perfectly on time. Could not have asked for more.

I am long time Aetna employee (32 years) so I've treid just about every hotel in downtown Hartford. I like Homewood for the spacious suites and full kitchens but stopped staying here several years ago because the fitness center was outdated. Before booking this time I asked a question on trip advisor about the fitness center and someone representing the hotel said it had been updated with Precor equipment. They were right making that obstacle a moot point. The hotel still has the negatives associated with such an old building (dark, weird layout, etc.) but has many positives associated with a Homewood as well as the location and a solid staff. I paid about $150 for my room which was well worth it.

First warning: NOT for families with children.

Pros:

Friendly staff.
Large rooms.
Full kitchen.
Downtown location.

Cons:

NO INSULATION. Every conceivable squeak and rattle can be heard. Built in the 1950's and last decorated in the 1980's. In my room, I had the choice of the windows overlooking the parking lot and the homeless rabble, or, the back of a 3rd level outside bar where the drunks (I mean patrons) next door hang out all night every night. Closing the drapes and bedroom doors had no impact on that noise or the running toilet in my room that woke me up every hour (never fixed).

I have stayed exclusively at Hilton properties for the last several years and in particular the Homewood Suites affiliates. This one was way down on the scale:

1) The food was not only bland, but not diverse and the quantities skimpy.
2) A false sense of security with overkill. Cameras everywhere - but people wandering in and out at random through the lobby.
3) Exorbitant parking fees: $17 for overnight.
4) A tiny space for a gym with...NO A/C. Oh, they had a portable in there one day, but the next it was gone leaving the room at over 80 degrees. Two treadmills. One elliptical. One small bench and some free weights.
5) A real maze to get around. It takes longer to get to my room than to go to the
parking lot.
6) I mentioned friendly staff? Well, friendly, yes, but unable to execute the slightest instructions like "may have toilet paper delivered between 8 and 5 when I am at work."
7) There is nothing to do in this nothing happening downtown. You entertain plenty of risk going out after dark. One of the less safe feeling downtowns I have been in, in a long time.
8) There are no convenience stores, indeed, no shopping of any kind. You must have a car.
The closest grocery store / Walmart / Target, etc. is 15 minutes by highway, West. The hotel shop did not even have plain bottled water.

While not perfect, these folks need to visit the Salt Lake City Homewood and get some pointers on guest service and comfort - particularly since on of the main features of Homewood is the Monday through Thursday breakfast / dinner service.

VERY PRICEY considering the lack of amenities and hassles encountered here.
Maybe market rate, but no value added at all.

I really like Hilton, but never staying at this property again.
