we really enjoyed staying here - the front desk was kind and full of great suggestions like city steam (which brews their own beer!). parking was a bit expensive at $17 per day. the rooms are enormous and lofted which felt a little strange but i'm sure most people enjoy the extra space. we would definitely go back if we're...

Located within walking distance of the XL Center. This hotel had all the amenities I expect from a Residence Inn: Comfortable and spacious room, ample breakfast, comfortable common areas. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful on a very busy weekend. Parking is very easy, its right behind the building (well lit, and safe) and the daily price... More

We stayed here for a fall Connecticut getaway (3 nights). The guestroom we got had the feeling of an apartment rather than a traditional hotel room, which was great. It was clean enough, obviously spacious and very quiet. We had a room with an interior courtyard thus the absent noise. The kitchen was convenient to store food and make snacks... More

I love this property. The location is ideal, and the rooms are so much fun! The loft layout makes the room HUGE and the living room is so nice to relax in after a long day. I rarely use the kitchen since I'm generally there on business, but its like a decent city-sized apartment.

I stayed only one night but was pleasantly surprised by both the quality and size of the rooms. They were well mantained and clean. The service from the front desk was also excellent, with a very friendly and cheerful attitude.

First time staying here. Its not cheap at $300/night. And lets face it Hartford is where hotels go to die. All of the options are VERY poor.

This is a gorgeous hotel! I am someone who loves ambiance and an experience and this place rocks! The building itself is beautiful, and so it the lobby. It's historical on the outside and modern on the inside. The front desk was courteous and hip. Although I had a difficult time understanding their parking directions, we found it eventually. I...

Hotel is clean. Newer furnishings and appears recently renovated. Loft layout is very strange with a ton of wasted space. Tiny bathroom and only a queen bed in a huge space just makes no sense.
