Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Hartford Downtown Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great stay for our dragon boat team!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The rooms were nice, clean and the location was fantastic for the Riverfront Dragon Boat festival. The best thing was the breakfast which your kitchen staff was so accommodating! They kept all the food at the buffet full and constantly asked what else we needed, despite the fact we descended 90 women down on them between 7-8:30 AM! The wait staff was a little overwhelmed (I heard it might have been their 1st day) and couldn't keep up with the silverware, clean bowls, cleaning of tables, napkins and coffee demand, but the food, smiles and energy from the kitchen staff made up for that small inconvenience and their sullen. We will definitely come here again. Thanks!
(Group coordinator, booked 20 rooms), from US flag
18-Aug-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Aug 16 to Sun Aug 17 2014 at a $99.00 group rate (10% discount).
Response from Management on 21-Aug-2014:
Thanks Kerry! We appreciate the feedback and look forward to being of service again next year!!
