Default BDL Airport Commuter Hotels?

Hi All! One of my kids is attending college in the area and was wondering if anyone knew of any hotels at the BDL airport that offer crewmembers a reasonable rate. Thank you. Mike MSP

I can't think of any offhand, but I would call up Signature Flight Support (or any other FBO) on the field and ask them who they have deals with - there's a decent Marriott Courtyard on the airport. I've found that they are usually better than whatever break I get with my CAL ID.

Thanks, I'll give that a try next time I have to spend the night there.

As I type I am sitting in the Hilton Garden Inn in BDL...it is where a few airlines stay, not sure if they extend the rate to crewmembers on personal travel, but worth a shot. Buffalo Wild Wings across the street, 10% off with your key.

phone is 860-688-6400

Not specific to Airline employees, however, many corporations negotiate corporate rates locally.
Usually 15-50% off the normal rate.
Anyone who visits the corporations for Any reason qualify for the discounted rates.

The following is a partial list of corporations that likely have special rates with Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn and/or Hilton at BDL:

ADVO Systems
Ahlstrom
Alstom Power
American Honda
Bombardier Aerospace
CIGNA
CT Southern Auto Auction
Fed Ex
Hamilton Sunstrand
ING
Konica/Minolta
Pratt & Whitney/UTC
Tac Air
Westinghouse

I usually make a series of calls stating three companies that I plan to visit and ask who has the best rates.
The reservation agent will gladly search all three hotels checking three corporate rates.

Last week I stayed in Milwaukee and the rate went from $159 to $79 by mentioning Harley Davidson and Miller Brewing Company.

It has been a really long time, but the Ramada ( Ramada | Windsor Locks Connecticut Hotel | Windsor Locks, CT 06096 | Near Pool, Fitness Center & Pool ) used to treat me nice years ago...
