A Valentine’s Idyll at The Goodwin
You won’t find upscale lodgings better suited to a Valentine’s Day getaway in the heart of “Heart-ford” (if you’ll forgive our egregious Valentine’s pun) than The Goodwin. With one of our spacious, sumptuous, and well-accoutered rooms—which include Deluxe Queens, Deluxe Kings, Queen Studios, King Studios, Executive Suites, and Duplexes—you and that main squeeze of yours will be happily enfolded in our grand and venerable hotel’s seductive hospitality.
Close at hand, meanwhile, and perfect for a date night, you’ve got our newly opened Terreno Restaurant where Chef Tyler Anderson will treat you with fine Cal-Italian cuisine. And Bar Piña, where the two of you can toast your mutual infatuation at one of Hartford’s happening cocktail lounges. (During the day, meanwhile, Bar Piña morphs into a craft donut shop: just as appropriate for a Valentine’s Day date, we’d say!)
With amenities such as a 24-hour fitness center and yoga studio, you and your valentine will be sitting pretty in the lap of luxury here at The Goodwin.
Dating It Up for Valentine’s Day Around the Connecticut Capital
With a romantic downtown perch at The Goodwin, you two valentines are conveniently situated to visit some of the city’s leading entertainment, shopping, dining, and recreational destinations. Many of these serve as topnotch date options, too, including the glorious gardened grounds of the Elizabeth Park Conservancy (1561 Asylum Ave, West Hartford): a formal greenspace on the National Register of Historic Spaces that’s open every day of the year and has free admission. (Don’t miss the Conservancy’s Pond House Cafe, either!)
Then there’s the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (600 Main St., Hartford), host to a magnificent permanent collection of artwork and currently presenting such temporary exhibitions as Rembrandt’s Titus in a Monk’s Hat (through April 30th)—a painting by the Dutch master of his son that’s rarely shown in the U.S.—and Cutting Edge: Noguchi’s Aluminum Monolith Sesshu (through March 5th), a striking sculpture by the Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi that’s been off-display since 1968.
You’ve also got multiple performance venues for taking in a show or a concert over your Valentine’s Day holiday, including the esteemed Hartford Stage (50 Church St., Hartford), which is putting on a theatrical adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre from February 13th through March 14th.
Book your Valentine’s Day getaway in Downtown Hartford at The Goodwin today, and we’ll look forward to hosting you and your sweetheart!
