My son and I visited Mystic Seaport in CT, and this hotel was one of the highlights of our trip. It's perfectly located halfway between Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium each of which is about a 5 minute drive. The hotel itself is modern and clean, with a spacious lobby that feels welcoming. We were greeted by friendly staff that accommodated our every need - these folks really do it all... the front desk staff did everything from checking us in, to delivering our room service, to warming up chocolate chip cookies for us! I especially appreciated how kind they were to my son, and how generous they were in giving him their attention - a nice touch! Our hotel room was very spacious, with upscale decor. The living room area has a corner sectional which made the space feel very homey and comfortable - so much so that we chose to stay in and order rooms service and a movie! The large bed was comfortable and well appointed with super-soft linen and fluffy comforter. My son stayed on the pull out sofa bed, and even that was comfy! The next morning we were greeted with a a delicious array of fresh breakfast fare, which was included in the rate - a real budget saver when you're traveling with a family. A variety of hot breakfast sandwiches, fresh fruit and yogurt, cereals, pastries, fresh juice, etc... it was a great way to start of our day. The best part of it all was the incredible rate! I highly recommend this hotel for family travel.
