I stayed here because I was attending a conference at the CT Convention Center and their rate was 1/2 what the hotel adjoining the Convention Center wanted! Definitely a great decision, the rooms were spotless, beds were very comfortable and clean. And the free hot breakfast was really generous: eggs, sausage, belgian waffles, plus bagels/cereal/fruit. I added a 2nd night to turn the trip into a leisure visit since I went to college in Hartford and like coming back. So I know the area a bit and even though this hotel is in East Hartford which isn't always safe, the location is right on the Hartford border and I never felt unsafe. I was able to walk to the Convention Center in Hartford and back when it was daylight. At night I took a cab for $8 incl. tip (use the yellow cabs NOT the black livery cabs!) The only thing that would have made the stay better is if they offered a free shuttle to and from the Convention Center but overall it really wasn't a problem. I would also like to add that I had to iron a white blouse and the iron in the room had some burnt residue on it. Housekeeping went above and beyond to track down a spotless iron for me to use!
