Whether, as in this festive season, you’re hunting your way through your holiday list (and maybe hunting down some Black Friday deals in the process), or you’re just in the mood for a little retail therapy on a visit to Hartford any time of year, you’ll have no shortage of shop-till-you-drop options at your disposal when you call The Goodwin home.
Our boutique hotel sets you up in style in the heart of downtown Hartford, with a rich lineup of storefronts and malls within easy reach. Here’s a casual and certainly non-exhaustive survey of some of them!
Shopping in Greater Hartford on a Goodwin Getaway
Right here in Hartford you’ve got loads of options for both general-purpose and specialty shopping (and window shopping). Land yourself some gorgeous custom stationery over at Hartford Prints! (42 1/2 Pratt St), deck yourself out in natty splendor at Gus Fas Tailor Shop (57 Pratt St) or Armstrong Rockwell Watches & Fine Jewelry (150 Trumbull), and majorly up your mixological game with a bottle or three from Hartford Flavor Company (30 Arbor St, Suite 107-108). We’ve got to give a shout-out to the fine gift shop over at Hartford’s widely celebrated Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (600 Main St), as well.
You’ll also find yourself close to several fine malls just about guaranteed to have what you’re looking for (and maybe about 15 things you that weren’t looking for but discover you definitely need). They include Westfarms (1500 New Britain Ave, West Hartford), the downright vast directory of which includes Hollister Co., American Eagle Outfitters, Bath & Body Works, Kay Jewelers, Hallmark, Macy’s, GAP, Banana Republic, Microsoft, Disney Store, Tiffany & Co., Sunglass Hut, Victoria’s Secret, Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, Kate Spade New York, JCPenney, Pottery Barn, and Apple Store—and that’s not even the full lineup.
Over at Blue Black Square (65 Memorial Rd, West Hartford), meanwhile, you’ll find additional brands such as Crate & Barrel, Barnes & Noble, and Ooh La La! Boutique.
