About Whitney Inn & Suites

Located in a great spot near Quinnipiac University’s York Hill campus, Whitney Inn & Suites has all the charm of a New England Inn and some great amenities to boot.

The rooms are recently renovated and have the clean and neat décor typical of business hotels. They are well equipped with all the practical amenities you’ll need, from microwaves to mini-fridges, as well as flat screen TV’s and free Wi-Fi to keep you informed, entertained and connected.

Arriving guests will find ample free onsite parking right out front. Those who have been on the road a while can get their wardrobe looking clean and fresh again at the onsite guest laundry.

A complimentary continental breakfast is provided every morning. There are several restaurants in the area for the other two meals, including the highly recommended Ristorante Luce, for the best Italian food in town.

Downtown Hamden is 2.5 miles south of Whitney Inn & Suites.

Positive Reviews

Remodelled rooms are pleasantly surprising

By the time many guests arrive at their room, their expectations have nose-dived. Their despondent feeling often transforms into amazement, however, when they step inside. The recently renovated rooms are nice and spacious and above all surprisingly clean. The modern feel is intensified with brand new bathroom fittings, TVs, microwaves and fridges. Even the beds are comfortable! Many end up feeling they have made a great value for money discovery!

Easy access to freeway and university

The hotel is ideally located for anyone visiting friends or relations at Quinnipiac University campus nearby. The freeway is also within easy reach and there is a nice heritage trail behind.

Friendly staff

The staff are, more often than not, found to be friendly and helpful. Guests comment on their smiling and cheerful demeanors.

Negative Reviews

Noisy street

The hotel is just off a very busy highway and many guests complain that they have difficulty sleeping because of the constant traffic noise.

Run down hotel

Many guests get a fright when they turn up outside the hotel. Far from what many had been led to expect on the website, the building is old and looked run-down. Things don't improve for guests brave enough to venture in either. There is no elevator and the place feels dirty. The worst part being the carpets, which are stained and in desperate need of a deep-clean – if not to be completely replaced.

Bad odors

Guests frequently detect musty or moldy odors in the room. In certain cases this is covered up by the overpowering smell of what seems to be air fresheners. However it is the lobby and the hallways that appear to have the worst stenches and the smell alone makes many guests feel like fleeing straight away.
