Our Story

The Goodwin story began in 1881, when two brothers, James J. Goodwin and Rev. Francis Goodwin, developed this classic structure as a landmark apartment building. Originally developed as an upscale apartment building and later converted to a hotel, The Goodwin was a classic and prestigious address from the start. J.P. Morgan resided here during visits to his hometown, and The Goodwin has retained its sophistication and appeal ever since.

The hotel was converted in the late 1980s in conjunction with the Goodwin Square project; its fa├žade was preserved from the apartment building and has become an iconic Hartford landmark. Today, The Goodwin exudes a vibrant city style, while retaining elements of its history, heritage, and tradition.
