Hyatt Summerfield Suites Hartford North/Windsor

Posted on July 7, 2011 by under Travel.    

Becca selected a great hotel for us in Connecticut. That’s Connecticut with a “C” and not a “K” for those terrible spellers like Brian. LOL.

I liked the comfortable king-sized bed and the spaciousness of the room itself. Our accommodation included a separate living room and kitchen (equipped with a full-sized fridge, dishwasher and microwave — they even provided dishes, silverware and glassware like wine glasses and such) and the shower in the bathroom is large enough for a couple of people to shower together — a must for Brian and me.

There’s a ledge in the shower that is too small for a bench but is the perfect width and height to prop your leg up when shaving. I didn’t really have to do that since I had my legs and arms waxed prior to the trip, but I thought it would be a helpful tip to share with everyone (well, mostly the ladies I guess).

I really liked the entertainment center that serves as a divider between the bedroom area and the living area. The best part is that the TV swivels 360 degrees in either direction so you can watch TV while sitting on the couch with your feet propped on the hassock or while laying in bed, though you can’t do both at the same time. There is only one TV after all. =P

Speaking of watching TV, the rooms are equipped with DVD players so you can watch a movie or, if you prefer, you can hook your laptop up to the TV via the HDMI connection and watch something from Netflix or Hulu on the TV since wireless internet service is complimentary — another must for us.

Other things that are complimentary are the hot breakfast every morning and wine, beer, water and other beverages during social hour Monday through Thursday. Every other Wednesday in summer is “grilling” night where the hotel hosts a complimentary cookout. The night we checked in it was Caribbean night.

Breakfast is nothing spectacular but, as complimentary breakfasts go, it’s pretty good. They usually have sausage or bacon. They have eggs, but they make it different ways each day. One day it was scrambled. Another day they had folded eggs with cheese in the middle. I’m not really a fan of either, but I lucked out that the chef Carlos is a nice guy. I asked if I could get eggs made to order and he first told me no, but then felt bad for me because he later agreed to do it. We skipped breakfast at the hotel because we ate at the Harvest Cafe & Bakery in Simsbury the next day, but the day after that Carlos asked me if I wanted my fried eggs without prompting when I ran into him the next day.

The room we had is great enough by itself but, even if the facility wasn’t, it’s service like that of Carlos’ that will keep guests coming back. He sure made me feel special. If you ever find yourself in the Hartford, CT area, I highly recommend staying at the Hyatt Summerfield Suites in Hartford North/Windsor. You won’t regret it!
