Top 5 Hotels for
Yale Guests in New Haven


From Yale University to a foodie’s dream trip, there are many reasons visitors flock to New Haven every year. The best way to enjoy this vibrant city is by staying in a great hotel just moments from all the action. If you’ve got family or friends coming to visit, we definitely recommend checking out these five fabulous hotels with perfect locations, reasonable prices and luxurious décor.

1. New Haven Hotel

Situated on George Street, the affordable New Haven Hotel is in a vibrant part of the city with great restaurants and bars just a few steps away. It is also a quick 5-minute walk to Yale’s campus and the independent boutique retailers along Chapel Street.

Alongside comfy beds and great views, New Haven Hotel offers on-site parking and provides free Wi-Fi. Breakfast is available but we would recommend walking around the corner and up College Street to Claire’s Corner Copia by the green for a treat before exploring Yale’s glorious campus.

2. Omni New Haven Hotel

Also in the downtown hub is the Omni which has an impressive 19th floor panoramic restaurant with views overlooking the green and Yale University. Even if your guests don’t stay at Omni, the restaurant makes for a great breakfast or dinner location.

As far as guest rooms and suites go, Omni has newly renovated them for a fresh, modern look. It is also a pet friendly hotel, so you can bring your furry friend and enjoy walking around New Haven Green.

It’s a 2 minute walk from New Haven Towers so it’s an excellent choice if your guests want to be near any of our residents.

A highlight of the Blake and the whole of Downtown New Haven is the High George Rooftop Bar, a popular location for Yalies and visitors alike. We definitely recommend reserving a spot in advance for breakfast and bellinis, or dinner and desserts.
