Sophistication a hallmark of weddings big and small at this downtown hotel
Sophisticated does not have to mean huge when it comes to weddings. That’s the philosophy at The Goodwin, where wedding couples who want more intimate ceremonies and receptions will find a staff ready and able to make their smaller gatherings special. Those efforts are helped by the thoughtful decisions made when the historic 19th-century hotel was renovated. For example, cozy private suites (perfect for small ceremonies), are dramatic statements with rich black walls and contrasting white trim, plus decorative fireplaces refinished from the original Goodwin. As for reception menus, let the Harlan Brasserie, the onsite restaurant, help you plan something beautiful, delicious – and individual to your tastes. No matter the size, your Goodwin wedding will be a sophisticated success.

Nothing small about the attention this inn pays to wedding couples
Small weddings still get the big-day treatment at the Inn at Middletown, where a dedicated professional staff will help you plan your shower, wedding ceremony, reception – even your post-wedding breakfast. The inn’s intimate Patriot Room, perfect for smaller ceremonies and cozy private receptions, is paneled in the rich mahogany that harkens back to the inn’s 1810 origins as a gracious two-story home. Another romantic touch is the spectacular two-story curved staircase, a dramatic showcase for that grand entrance. Another site to make a big splash for photos? The balcony above the inn’s welcoming doorway. Catering, from passed hot and cold hors d’oeuvres to sit-down dinners, is provided by the award-winning Tavern at the Armory.
