Everyone LOVED the Goodwin!

We had our hotel block at the Goodwin and hosted the wedding party and used it as our getting ready venue. They were nothing short of amazing. They were always super flexible with my requests and always what more could they do to help us. It really meant a lot! We were also able to coordinate a super yummy breakfast of breakfast sandwiches and fun donuts delivered to our bridal suite the morning of so we were all happily fed without anyone needing to do anything. I highly recommend them for anything hotel related ever! Thank you for everything!

The historic Goodwin Hotel stands out from the city, clearly setting itself apart as one of the most interesting buildings Hartford has to offer. Inside, it doesn’t disappoint. Completely renovated and impeccably maintained, every detail of the hotel left us eager, and proud, to invite our family and friends to stay there.
Working with Events at The Goodwin with Porron & Pina was a joy. Heather, our Events and Catering Sales Director, is personable, confident and completely on top of her game. She knows what will work and what won’t and is able to leave you feeling good even when things you want fall into the “won’t work” category. She listened intently to our wants and concerns and always got the job done. She is also just a pleasure to know. Funny, energetic and genuine, we grew to like and trust Heather so much we would have preferred she attended our wedding as a guest rather than working it as an event, but we’re so very grateful she was on the job because it was perfect! The planning, coordination, staffing all turned out just as she promised. The staff was courteous, friendly and completely professional. Every detail was covered, every box was checked, and all we needed to do was enjoy our wedding. Which we certainly did.
The meal that Chef Tyler Anderson of Porron & Pina provided was outstanding! Perhaps the best compliment we can give is that there was nothing “weddingish” about it. Every salad, side and entrée. . . all of it was just awesome. Our guests raved about the level of service and the quality of the food. Many made mention of how much they overate, which is a first for us at any wedding we’ve been to. We’re thrilled it happened at ours.
The whole experience of getting married at The Goodwin - from the planning to the end of the reception - was a completely enjoyable and deeply satisfying experience. We’re very grateful to everyone at The Goodwin Hotel for giving us such a magically special day.
