We are getting married in a venue that does not offer accommodation and we don’t live in Connecticut (although it’s where I’m from) so I am going to have to find somewhere special for us to crash after the festivities (and maybe afterwards!)
Do any of you know of a hotel/inn around Hartford that has nice offerings for the purpose of a honeymoon suite?
Any tips are appreciate!

Hmmm… are you looking in Hartford itself? THe downtown hotels are okay – but more for business traveling, not as much for romantic honeymoons. There are a couple inns and stuff outside of Hartford, it just depends on how far you’re willing to go.

Probably anywhere within about 20-30 mins of Hartford – I’m from W. Hartford but I don’t think FI will want to stay in my childhood bedroom!

Sorry this is late-
Have you looked into Historic Wethersfield? There are some beautiful, newly restored B&B’s right there, it’s 20 minutes from downtown, and there are great restaurants in the village. Also, Simsbury 1820 house (but that’s more like 40 mins), and the Avon Old Farms Inn.
I would have recommended the Goodwin Hotel, but that’s now closed. You might look into the Hilton, or the new Marriot, for locations right in Downtown Hartford. Also, I feel like theres an old in/B&B in Farmington for which I don’t recall the name. We looked into it when we were considering having our wedding at Hill Stead.

I got married in West Hartford and we used the Hartford Hilton. Mehrdad is in charge- he’s a great help! They also offer great deals for room blocks- better than any other hotel in Hartford.
