Local Accommodations: Near By:
The Hilton Hartford (860-728-5151) offers reasonable rates and is located next to the Civic Center approximately 10 minutes away. The Crowne Plaza (50 Morgan St.; 860-549-2400) rate for a double is pretty expensive, but the hotel is nice with no surprises. In Glastonbury, 15 minutes from Hartford, is Butternut Farm (1654 Main St.; 860-633-7197), a moderately priced bed-and-breakfast (full breakfast included), 15 minutes from Wesleyan and the University of Hartford. Also consider Chester Bulkeley House bed-and-breakfast (184 Main St.; 860-563-4236), in historic Wethersfield, 10 minutes from Trinity and The University of Hartford, and 20 minutes from Wesleyan.
Local Accommodations: Far Away:
To the east of Hartford, about 25 minutes from Trinity (an easy drive on I-84) are some places with character, including the Old Babcock Tavern (484 Mile Hill Rd., Tolland; 860-875-1239), a nice little bed-and-breakfast, and the Tolland Inn (63 Tolland Green; 860-872-0800), another quiet place. Moderate prices are the rule. If you are going to visit Sturbridge, keep in mind that it's only another 25 minutes up the road from Tolland. Check the University of Hartford entry for the Simsbury and Avon suggestions. Check the entry for the University of Connecticut for some good places to stay within a half-hour's drive of Hartford, due east toward Rhode Island.
