Courtyard Hartford Windsor Adds Style And Sophistication

Travelers seeking the comforts of home combined with the beauty of a modern hotel are in luck. The Courtyard Hartford Windsor has just unveiled its reimagined guest rooms after a major renovation project breathed new life into the hotel near the University of Hartford. Guests will feel the difference the moment they step foot into one of the Windsor, CT, hotel’s modern rooms with tone-on-tone décor seamlessly incorporating subtle color accents to delineate sleeping and living areas. The sculptural design of the lounge-around sofa and comfy chairs add to the aesthetic that lacks the clutter of traditional artwork. New lighting enhances the architecture and design of each room.
