Room and bathroom were clean. Parking is not included in room rate. This is not clear on the hotel's listing on Kayak's site. Room and bathroom have the charm of an old dorm room. Breakfast is minimal--continental. The bargain aspects of the hotel would be ok if parking was included. With the fee for parking, the room rate is not a good value. We would have gone to another property if we knew that parking wasn't included in the room rate.
The hotel was very well located and had a great view of the capitol. It was only a few minutes from the Connecticut Convention Center, which was convenient for my work function. The parking lot outside felt extremely unsafe on several different occasions. A security guard of some sort posted outside would have helped with this. If I had been coming in after dark, I'd have been very unhappy with this situation. Luckily, I was coming in during the daytime still.
