We are currently staying here with a large group of students and families from overseas for an academic competition at Yale along with several other schools staying here, so here is our experience. The hotel is conveniently located to walk around and the room is clean. Despite this, as a frequent traveler all over the world, our group is incredibly disappointed with the lack of flexibility from the management. We are spending an exorbitant amount of money to stay here, with over 20 rooms booked just from our school alone, yet they have refused to simply offer breakfast earlier or add additional tables to accommodate all of the students/guests that need to be at their competition at Yale by a certain time in the morning. Additionally, since we are checking out prior to the breakfast area being open, management is unwilling to even put a piece of fruit or something in a bag as our group departs to the airport. So, yes it's clean and convenient but don't expect much more than that from management. Lastly, the staff is kind and clearly they are not given the amount of support or help needed to accommodate or assist the number of guests at the hotel.
The hotel is very nice as are the employees.
Starbucks coffee is offered to all guests in the morning along with a selection of tea's.
In the afternoon they off a "wine social" which I did not get to attend but its a pretty cool idea.
As far as location goes, this hotel is situated in an area where restaurants and bars are plentiful and within a short walking distance.
Keep in mind, parking is not included in the room price
Overall a pleasant stay.
