“Beautiful hotel.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We had made reservations here to follow a day at Lake Compounce. We had been here before when it was a different brand and it looks very different now. The lobby is beautiful and inviting. The front desk clerk was very nice, signed us in quickly and gave us our cookies, which were delicious!

Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was lovely and modern. There was Evelyn and Crabtree soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion which smelled great! Plenty of clean, white towels, and I mean they were super white! The bath tub was sparkling clean! I did notice, however, that over showering there was some black specks in the tub, which I assume was from the water.

Across from the bathroom was a counter with an ice bucket; two glasses; a Keurig; four disposable coffee cups; cup lids; packets with sugar, creamer, stirrers; additional cream; four coffee K cups; and two tea K cups. Beneath the counter was some storage space and a mini fridge.

Next to the counter was a nice size closet with several hangers, There was also an iron, ironing board, and safe. There was one electrical outlet opposite the closet. Trying to iron there would be quite tight, I think.

Our room had standard drawers and a nice, big flat screen tv. There was also a desk with chair, desk lamp, and desk phone. On the side of the desk was two electrical outlets and data ports. There was an additional chair in the room, which was quite comfy, and a small table next to it. There was a night stand with a lamp, phone, and alarm clock, which also had an docking station. The two queen beds were very comfortable, however, the pillows were terrible. I had difficulty sleeping because of the pillows.

The only real problem I had was there were no electrical outlets near the full length mirror. I could have dried my hair there while someone else showered, but since there was no outlet near the room mirror, I had to dry my hair in the bathroom which meant someone else had to wait for me to be done before showering.

Thank you for your review and comprehensive comments. We will share them with our team. How do we keep our towels so white? We keep that a trade secret along with our cookie recipe! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and shared your experience with others. We hope to see you again very soon.

Hotel did not honor reservation request for connecting rooms Reason given was a Little League team had taken all the rooms. The Hotel certainly had to know when I booked the reservation that the team was staying & should have informed me I would have stayed elsewhere if I had known The staff made no real attempt at check-in to accommodate us

We had a great stay after my cousin's wedding. The after party started at the hotel bar and continued up in her private suite. Our room was enormous and we slept so well after a long night of celebrating!

This hotel was just a stop on our long drive home. The hotel itself was excellent - as expected. The food in the bar was an amazing surprise. They embrace a farm to table philosophy. The Caesar salad was one of the best I've ever had. Unfortunately we'd eaten a late lunch in New England so I had little room for dinner. Otherwise I would've tried another salad I saw people ordering. Even better, we would've had a full meal in the restaurant. This was definitely not standard hotel fare.

Central location to Lake Compounce and Hartford. Lovely hotel. I wished there were outside benches in front of the hotel, which looks very austere without them. We took our 16 year old son and a friend with us and there is canoing, kayaking, Rock Concerts (Infinity Center), and of course, Lake Compounce Amusement Park, all nearby.
