        Generally good value for money

        It was inconvenient that hotel did not have shuttle service to Hartford Airport. The second day the hotel was running the gas fireplace in the lounge/eating area when it was warm and humid outside. Although it was pretty it was making the room very hot and "drove us" out of the room. Lastly the maintenance in the room I was in (specifically the bathroom) needed some minor repairs on the ceiling that would would have made the room more attractive and desirable.

        Biscuits were put out for breakfast and asked worker if gravy was coming out - reply was - No, it's Sunday and I'm too busy. A simple no would have sufficed without the comment.

        The room was great and the staff phenomenal. Alex at the front desk was lovely and she helped arrange the shuttle bus for me when I arrived in Hartford and again when I left.

        The hotel was clean, the people were friendly and it was located conveniently for my visit.

        Clean facility, shuttle service, accomodating and cheerful staff

        The only thing that I would have liked, is a small refrigerator in the room.

        It had a shuttle to the conference center. It was right off the highway.

        The shuttle stopped before 9pm.

        I was on my way from Vermont to nyc and needed a hotel to stay overnight in Hartford. I got what I expected from a room at a Holiday Inn Express Hotel. Clean, comfortable, kind personnel, nice and spacious room. I can recommend it.

        The room was quite large with 2 TVs. There is also an indoor whirlpool but the water temperature seemed too high.

        The air conditioning could not be switched off so there was a disturbing noise the whole night. During the breakfast time the service personal hovered and meetings took place in the breakfast room which we found very disturbing.
