Red Lion Hotel Hartford
The location works for the Convention Centre but don't expect any amenities close to the hotel. Major building works were in progress close by and the hotel is located off a series of busy freeways.

Reasonable location for visit to the XL centre

Red Lion Hotel Hartford
For business it is not worth the money.
Downtown location, ok lobby, bar, restaurant, and room. No free parking and you drive down into a garage that was literally falling down and crumbling. Breakfast was not included, hotel appeared tired. There were 3-4 others in the area in the same price range that included parking and breakfast that i will try next time.
Patrick, us1 night trip
Red Lion Hotel Hartford
The hotel felt dirty and outdated. There were lots of extra expenses, including parking and breakfast. I could hear the people very clearly in the neighboring room. And the shower/ tub did not drain. Very mediocre experience for a very inflated cost.

Breakfast was $14 each. Why?
$17 for parking, I can deal with that, but breakfast was $14 each. Never again. Marriott's have breakfast included. Just say no.
