Marriott Hartford; at last, a 21st C hotel for Hartford!
Thank goodness for this hotel! Am certain its building did prompt the refurbishment of the local competition; The Hilton (which is good!). Did stay here for the first time this month and what a nice place. Located on top of Hartford's new convention center, very very nice (albeit dodgy carpet), the hotel has a grand scale and appearance that is more NYC than CT. As one would expect of American hotels, and US chains such as Marriott, the square footage of each room is generous. The bathrooms are a little small, but certainly do the job, whilst being smartly done together with the furnishings generally. Essentially this is a welcome retreat if one happens to be stuck in Hartford with no time to visit the Wadsworth Antheneum for a culture check.
Fantastic 4 star hotel; great staff; "Vivo" restauraunt a big disappointment
Wow. The staff in this hotel are amazing, paying attention to your every need. The doormen and bellhops will ask you if you need anything if you so much as glance their way when walking past. My bellhop was perhaps the best I have ever encountered (including at Ritz Carletons) as he took it upon himself to unload my car, arranging to get it valeted, etc, etc, etc. I felt pampered. Is this a Marriott???? LOL
The building itself is beautiful and my corner room on the 18th floor had great views. I highly recommend paying the extra $10 for the corner view rooms.
Starbucks on premisis.
The major disappointment was the "Vivo" restaurant. It certainly looked the part.. the interior was very nice with an exposed kitchen. But the food was very lackluster, expecially considering the prices. Avoid that restauraunt if you are discerning.
Tastefully Simple Consultant loves Hartford Marriott
Wonderful facilities, wonderful staff. Front Desk employee Mr. Cornwell was superb! He went above and beyond with his professional assistance. Maria in the convention center brightened up my day with her bubbly personality. I'll stay here again when another trip to Connecticut is planned. ~ Kris Sayers, Coal City, IL
Absolutely loved it !
We stayed at this hotel for two nights. Had a wonderful experience. Staff was very professional and helpful. The restaurant had nice menu choices. Great weekend. Recommend this hotel without any reservations.
Very nice hotel
This is a new hotel, and is very nice. Attached to the convention center, so it is the most convenient if you are attending something at the connecticut convention center. I stayed overnight at the hilton down the street earlier in the week, but switched to the marriott because I wasn't happy at the hilton. Good water pressure, spotless rooms, starbucks in the lobby, high speed internet in the rooms ($10/day). Highly recommended.
I recently stayed two nights at this new hotel. Service was Great! Indoor Pool / Fitness Center is located on the top floor which gives guests a great view of Downtown Hartford. Excellent Rooms. When I return to Hartford, I will definitely be staying at this hotel.
I recently stayed at the Downtown Marriott in Hartford and have to say it is a great hotel. It is fairly new which augmented the feeling of cleanliness. The staff were really great and very friendly. The gym was also excellent. Conveniently there is a Starbucks in the lobby which helped for getting breakfast on the run. Only complaint - soda pop machines were not working, but it's still a new hotel. If I'm ever in Hartford again I will definitely stay at the Downtown Marriott.
Hartford Marriott Downtown Fabulous
I stayed at the Hartford Marriott downtown shortly after it opened in September. It is a beautiful property with an amazing restaurant, Vivo and a fantastic lounge, Crush. Everyone was extremely nice and there was an invitation-only party going on in the restaurant and lounge. As a houseguest, I was invited to come down to the party and try the food and sample drinks, compliments of the house. Very nice place. Would strongly recommend to others. Rooftop gym is amazing...great treadmills...really top-notch!
New Marriott was excellent
Just spent two nights at the Marriott on business. Originally planned to stay three nights at the Hilton but on arrival did not receive my requested room type and had problems with internet so in the a.m. I switched to the Marriott. Asked for and received early check-in. Found everything quite nice. The hotel is brand new- had only been open five days so there were a few things not quite ready (like the parking ramp, not finished but usable, and they were hand validating the parking tickets) but the staff had a way around any problems such that there was no inconvenience. (i.e. they made them their problems not mine) The Restaurant was excellent and the Bar was very trendy. I would stay again. The only downside was the area- while adjacent to the new convention center there is nothing much restaurant/nightlife wise in walking distance. However it is a very short cab ride to such areas.

Plans for Ireland were underway. When should we go? What places will we visit? How long in each spot? How will we get around?

Well I couldn't get online last night but I want to thank Jen and the Staff of Louie B's in Southwick Mass for allowing me to hand out card and flyers, talk to the customers and have a great evening. All the staff had on The ONE Ride T Shirts and did a great job pointing people to me. Thank you and check out Louie B's on the lake in Southwick Mass.
