Verified Reviews of Best Western Hartford Hotel & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Convenient "
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Was easy for my team and myself and being close to Trinity. Only thing is the hotel lost power around midnight and then none of the tv's worked after that. Overall though no complaints.
(Group coordinator, booked 10 rooms), from US flag
05-Oct-2016 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Oct 01 to Sun Oct 02 2016 at a $99.00 group rate (16% discount).
"Best Western in Manchester CT was absolutely excellent. A great deal!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I made a reservation at the hotel for a group (my youth basketball team). The manage with whom I dealt (Kevin McCabe) was fantastic. He was professional, personable and accommodating. The rate we got was excellent and the amenities were great for the money. Breakfast, which was included in the price of the room, was excellent and plentiful. I found the staff to be very pleasant and eager to help. I recommend this to anyone staying in that area. Don't forget the outdoor heated pool!
