Hartford's history is waiting to be discovered
Fortunately, the 'Insurance Capital of the World' has more than just insurance companies to see. With a nod to great American culture, the city boasts many cultural establishments such as the Wadsworth Atheneum – America's first public art museum. You can also enter the Mark Twain House & Museum to learn about this iconic American novelist.
Located close to these attractions and plenty more is the Hartford Marriott, which boasts upscale rooms and modern facilities such as an indoor pool and wellness spa. Also nearby, the Residence Inn provides spacious suites and two-bedroom penthouses for the ultimate luxury.
Budget lodging slightly out of town
If you're visiting Hartford on a budget and don't mind commuting on public transport into the city centre, you might have a best friend in the range of inns and motels along the interstate. These grant lodging for very reasonable prices and it's still possible to venture into the city for a walk along the Connecticut River or a visit to the Connecticut State Capitol building.
The Super 8 Hartford isn't the most extravagant of hotels, but it does come with brand reliability, a small price tag and comfortable rooms that are adequate for a night or more. Located nearby, the Americas Best Value Inn provides a good place to rest the legs in affordable rooms.
The greener side to Hartford
Bushnell Park isn't just a park, it's a foundation, set up to preserve outdoor recreation for centuries to come. With blooming nature, a 100-year-old carousel, statues and monuments, and memorial archways, there's a ton of activities and sights to fill your day.
Positioned on the edge of Bushnell Park is the Holiday Inn Express. Stay in this hotel to enjoy a hot breakfast in the morning, before strolling over to the park for a lazy snooze in the sun or to see the State Capitol building. The Homewood Suites is another quality hotel that is only a few minutes' walk from the park.
