Victorian beginnings not forgotten in chic Hartford hotel
In the building that J.P. Morgan once called home, 21st century guests can expect to be treated like members of the upper crust. That’s because The Goodwin hotel, which began life in 1881 as an apartment building, has retained 19th century standards of attention to detail and exceptional service. But that’s not the only thing the boutique hotel has retained. Nods to the past include original fireplaces in some rooms, restored built-in wood closets, a stately black marble reception desk and the hotels’s iconic, ornate terra cotta facade. Although The Goodwin’s exterior says Victorian era, on the inside, modern touches include spacious bathrooms and seating areas in guestrooms and suites, a fitness center and two sophisticated but cozy dining/bar venues.

Boutique lodgings fit sweetly in a 19th-century Main Street home
Built in 1810 as a Main Street residence, the Inn at Middletown recalls an era when the city was an important seaport. And as a boutique hotel, we strive to retain the building's charm and historic character. Our 100 elegantly-appointed guest rooms and suites evoke classic New England living, with colonial-style mahogany furniture and classic gold-framed paintings. In our on-site Tavern at the Armory restaurant, relax by a crackling fireplace as you dine on classic New England fare. The area around our hotel is a wonderful historic setting. We're nestled beside the scenic Connecticut River, surrounded by the charming shops, boutiques and authentic ethnic restaurants that line Main Street. And we're just two blocks from the campus of Weslayan University.
