Experience the best boutique accommodations in Connecticut’s capital city with a getaway to downtown Hartford right here at The Goodwin!
Lately included in Connecticut Magazine’s “Best of Connecticut 2020” listings, we couldn’t be prouder to give our guests such a gorgeous—and historic—home base in the heart of this vibrant city, with ready access to its many attractions and showered throughout with our trademark hospitality.
The Goodwin: The Perfect Downtown Hartford Perch
Our building claims a rich history, having been opened back in 1881 as an apartment building by the Goodwin brothers, James and Reverend Francis. J.P. Morgan used to bed down here when passing through Hartford. We’ve transformed this long-standing landmark into a modern boutique hotel while preserving its instantly recognizable terra-cotta exterior.
Within you’ll find a variety of beautifully laid-out accommodations, including guest rooms, suites, and extra-spacious duplexes, among them the truly fit-for-royalty Executive Two-Bedroom Duplex. From the 50-inch, HD flat-screen smart TVs to the Keurig coffee makers, the in-room amenities meet your every need.
Then there’s our 24-hour fitness center and yoga studio, our hotel business center (also available around the clock), our free hotel-wide high-speed Wi-Fi, and our on-site Italian restaurant Terreno. You’ll be very well taken care of here at The Goodwin, needless to say!
Hartford Area Attractions on a Goodwin Getaway
On a normal Goodwin escape—and we acknowledge this current era of ours is anything but normal—you’ve got some very high-profile Connecticut attractions right at your fingertips, including performance and sports venues such as the XL Center, the Bushnell, the Hartford Stage, and the XFINITY Theatre. The city’s famed for its historic landmarks (not just The Goodwin), among them such literary pilgrimage sites as the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe houses.
Then there’s the rich suite of museums, including the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the Connecticut Historical Society and Museum, the Connecticut Science Center, and the Children’s Museum. A number of these institutions remain open with timed tickets or other careful adjustments to visitor protocol in the interest of COVID-19 safety.
Great shopping and diverse, non-Terreno dining also await you, plus outdoor activities at spots such as the famed Elizabeth Park (“the Flower of New England Parks”) and the Roaring Brook Nature Center.
