New Haven Hotels

Soak up the atmosphere of hallowed student halls at the famed Yale University, admire outstanding architecture in tightly packed city streets, and explore bustling town centers with jam-packed stores in the heart of New Haven. Historic, intriguing, and largely affluent, New Haven has earned its place as one of America’s most prestigious destinations. Glamorous shopping takes place along wide, tree-lined boulevards, trendy student bars hug the sidewalk next to towering glass-fronted office blocks, and ethnic restaurants edge the sides of New Haven Green, a 16 acre public park famed for its summer jazz festivities.

Things to see

At the heart of New Haven, the campus of Yale University stands proudly in the center of town in a sprawling campus of red-brick lecture theaters, historic museums, and graceful college halls built from sand-colored stone. The dramatic gothic tower of its famous Clock Bridge straddles the High Street, leading to red sandstone faculty buildings that edge a landscaped park. At the Quassy Amusement Park and Waterpark, brightly colored flumes slip and slide into cool plunge pools, while next door, rollercoasters rattle around in the sky to the screams of excited guests. Test your nerve in a laser maze before taking to the water in a paddle boat for 4. Inside the Westfield Connecticut Post Mall, airy glass-covered galleries are home to trendy fashion stores, world-famous toiletry shops, and windows of boutique jewelers that glitter with reflected light from highly polished diamonds. Visitors pack into the Webster Bank Arena at the Yard for an entirely different reason. This colossal indoor arena plays host to popular children’s entertainment characters, live gigs by international celebrities, and the tumbling and leaping of flamboyant circus acts whenever they come to town.

The price you pay for hotels in New Haven plays a part in deciding where you’ll stay. The more you’re willing to spend on accommodation, the closer you seem to get to the heart of the city. Luxury hotels in New Haven are typically housed in modern high-rise buildings with elegant designs, mirror-windowed facades, and marble-floored lobbies. They delight with tempting gourmet restaurants and designer gyms, and their guestrooms are thoughtfully presented with all the mod cons. As you make your way out of New Haven you’ll pass modern hotels along the Saw Mill Road. Spacious guestrooms, flat-screen televisions, and en-suite bathrooms are comfortable and serviceable, although considerably less glamorous than their luxurious neighbors.

Where to stay

The crowded central streets of New Haven are enclosed by solid, stone-built office blocks, boutique stores, and elaborate university campus buildings. Independent boutique stores with one-of-a-kind dresses and artwork sit alongside trendy cafés and student-filled bars. At nearby Milford, where discount hotels are readily available, the leafy streets are far more residential, with sprawling timber-framed homes, cracked concrete driveways, and tranquil river walks along the banks of the Wepawaug River.
