Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.
U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Clearly the best appointed accommodation in the area. Staff was friendly. Special requests were honored without question in a timely manner. Did not love breakfast but we might be picky. Restaurant staff was charming.
Overall very clean, pretty hotel. Very convenient to Wesleyan University. We would certainly stay again.
Older hotel with nice upgraded rooms. The room was spacious, but bathroom was a bit small – it’s an older hotel. Very friendly service and helpful staff! Great valet parking available. Downstairs breakfast – excellent breakfast included with our stay. There is a pub also onsite. Room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Housekeeping was very responsive when needed. We would stay here again – plus it’s right in the middle of the town and a manageable walk up the hill to campus, or a 5-minute drive to the athletic center.
The staff is Friendly! The rooms are newly decorated and pretty. The Tavern has a lovely menu. Breakfast is delicious! The hotel is convenient to restaurants and Wesleyan University! There is a drug store almost next door. Valet parking is helpful! Overall a wonderful experience.
What a wonderful place to stay. I recommend it highly. Comfortable, affordable and elegant. We were there for a wedding and it was absolutely beautiful. Food in the Tavern was great and so was the service.
t was nice to find a hotel in a great location right on main street. The large newly renovated rooms were on the larger side for a hotel room. The staff was quite pleasant and helpful. I did not eat in the restaurant but it was packed when I went to check out. They have a pool and nice gym which I was happy to use. Lots of events happening the night before but the hotel was nice and quiet. I liked being able to walk the entire main street and not have to drive to dinner. Will definitely be back.
The housekeeping did amazing jobs. Very clean rooms, clean bathrooms and smells fresh. This place is classy, elegant and cozy all wrapped up. Our two queen beds were like sleeping on a cloud in heaven. The shower was amazing, if I wasn’t so conscious about saving water I would have stayed in there half the day. The indoor pool was great way to get some exercise. The indoor hot tub was just what we needed after a long stressful day.
We loved sitting outside on in their courtyard, just wished the music was on both days we were there. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my stay! I just wish it was longer. This outstanding and beautiful Inn is located not far from many local shops and restaurants. They also have some amazing food on site at The Tavern at the Armory.

We stayed here recently while visiting the Hartford area and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel.
It’s inevitable that some folks will have a negative experience of some type at one point or another. But our stay was more than we expected.
Sure, the hotel is in a industrial-type area across the street from a small airport. But we had no issues whatsoever. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. Also, the overall appearance of the hotel was clean with no issues.
The staff were fantastic — friendly, with big welcoming smiles. I felt genuinely cared for as a guest both upon check-in and again at check-out (in my experience this certainly doesn’t happen at all chain hotels). I also received a free upgrade (to an Executive suite — which was almost bigger than my apartment!) upon arrival — completely unexpected and totally made my stay.
On top of that, the fitness center is AMAZING (new equipment, big and airy) and the breakfast without question was the best I have ever had at a BW or similar chain hotel. Seriously mind-blowing the huge array on offer!
I also slept incredibly well — the quiet is very quiet.
Oh, and the shower? The best I have perhaps ever had in my ENTIRE life. Wow. I could have stayed in there for hours! The only issue I had with my entire stay was that the cold tap in my bathroom sink would not turn off properly, and it kept flooding the bench area.
Everything else was fantastic. I was in the area for a meeting at a local school, and I actually live in CT, so I don’t know if I’ll be staying in the area again, but if I do … I will 100% stay here.
