We stayed at this Holiday Inn because we had to travel to Connecticut from Tennessee for a funeral. We arrived Friday evening after driving 16 hours. All we wanted was to eat and sleep. We ordered room service from the restaurant for dinner. The food and service was excellent. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and my cousin loved...

Hello Csheeshka, Thank you for staying at the Holiday Inn Hartford Downtown Area, CT and taking the time to post your feedback.

I really like this hotel. The front desk staff is always accommodating and friendly. What stands out at this hotel to me is the service that the bartender (Terry) gives. She is always so nice to everyone that she is serving and knows everybody's name....whether they are there once a year or once a month. Overall, the top notch service...

Our room smelled like mold. It took two hours to get a burger because there was only one chef yet the hotel was fully booked. My children went to the desk to get candy bars 3. Different times, the same candy bars were a different price each time. The pool was full but there were no towels. My husband gave...

We were very well received at the reception by smiling and happy speaking receptionists. We got a nice room, but missing a few things in the room, including soap and toilet paper. It was obviously delivered with a great excuse. The hotel is well and centrally located, and it's easy to get to and from the hotel and on highways.

When we arrived at the hotel, all seemed well and good. Arrived to our room (801) and we were hit with the overwhelming smell of smoke and mildew. We were on our way out to dinner and let the girl at the front desk know that we would be back in a couple hours and that we would like for...

Booking claimed 3.5 stars, but definitely not more than 2.5. Clean enough, but nothing special. Broken frame on the art in the bathroom, coffee maker cord had to be run across the desk to plug in, only decaf provided, tissue box empty, one key card doesn't work. All were remedied on request by the friendly front desk staff, but that...

We were so pleased to find the staff of the Holiday Inn in Hartford so remarkably kind and helpful. From the check-in staff to the dining room staff, everyone was more than happy to help and quick to offer a smile. The room was large and, for the most part, clean. My partner noticed that the rug could have used...

The receptionist was great, she explained to us where everything was. She was friendly, but professional. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable and spacious. I would definitely stay there again if I needed a hotel room in the Hartford area.
