Best Bed & Breakfast

Guests visiting this beautiful New England town will find that locals are warm, welcoming people eager to discuss the town’s rich history and culture. For those looking to stay in a homey environment that’s part of New Haven’s historical landscape, Hyatus recommends the Austin Street Inn. This charming bed & breakfast is housed in a 200-year old building that was originally constructed by one of the city’s founding families. Guests of Austin Street Inn get all of the benefits of living in a historic building with the addition of the modern comforts, like WiFi, we all love.

Best Traditional Hotels

The Blake Hotel is a chic and cozy boutique hotel conveniently located just a five-minute drive away from Yale University. This modern space offers guests numerous amenities, including access to the on-site gym, workspaces, and rooftop, and you won’t have to travel far for dinner and drinks because the in-house restaurant and the rooftop bar offer up delicious treats to satisfy any palate.

Best Cottage

Throughout parts of the 19th century, New Haven was the home of a booming oyster industry. Primarily a cottage industry, workers often lived alongside the water in quaint cottages. For guests looking to reside in a charming home from this period, the Oysterman’s House on Airbnb provides just this opportunity. Located in the Quinnipiac River Historic District and built in 1900, this home even offers guests the opportunity to use the host’s boat in the river during the summertime. With stunning river views and a private backyard, guests of this cottage can escape the busyness of New Haven at this nature retreat.

Best Waterfront Escape

Although New Haven is known for being a lively city, it’s also within close proximity to numerous beautiful, calming beaches. Just minutes from downtown New Haven, the Modern Beach House listed on Airbnb in East Haven, Connecticut, is a great option for visitors to Greater New Haven looking to stay on the water. This 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home is stocked full of amenities and gifts to make your waterfront stay everything you could dream of and more. The outdoor spaces in particular are stunning, offering guests beautiful places to lounge and many beach games and pieces of equipment, like kayaks, to ensure everything they need to make this trip memorable is within reach.

We always recommend you follow local guidelines, health officials, and stay-at-home or other travel restrictions. Within these parameters, it is worth noting that our guests stay an average of 90 days. This means that where a hotel is seeing constant traffic of different people entering and exiting a room, our apartments see one guest for a long period of time. After a guest leaves, we then leave additional time to clean and thoroughly sanitize the entire space well before the next guest is scheduled to arrive.

Hyatus apartments have always received stellar reviews for our stringent cleaning standards. While we continue to maintain the highest standards, including a detailed check-list with more than 100 cleaning routines and guidelines, we have further supplemented this routing with protocols that not only follow CDC guidelines for limiting the transmission of coronavirus, but go above and beyond with a hospital-grade sanitization routine. This includes but is not limited to:
