I agree with other reviewers who state that this hotel does not meet Marriott expectations. At breakfast, both steam serving trays were completely empty (only grease left in the bottom to show that food was there). The pancake batter and most of the coffee were completely empty as well. The oatmeal was the only thing left, and trust me, it... More

We recently planned a family get together and book the Residence Inn in Shelton. We have always stayed at various Marriott locations with total confidence. We were sadly disappointed this time. One of our showers was not clean and still had the used soap in the dish. The front desk was quick to correct the problem. When we returned to... More

I know this property makes big money because it is full and there is not much around to choose from. However, this is not up the Marriott standards. First, the property is circa 1990 and still feels that way. The staff was very friendly and check in was very efficient, but even with those things, our experience was below par.... More

My wife and I stayed here during my sons college orientation. The hotel is clean. The breakfast is solid. The only issue we had was with house cleaning's preparation of our room. There was only 1 shower towel in the unit even though the reservation was for 3 people. In addition, the pull-out coach had no sheets. The front desk... More

Went to an orientation for college and it was the perfect place to stay. Very clean and nice! Breakfast was great too! The staff at front desk was very accommodating and let us check in early! Local places to eat. Very nice area. Bathrooms were a little small. I would recommend to a friend.

I stayed here for two nights while we attended orientation at an area college. While I usually typically stay in Marriott hotels, I usually go for the hotels or Courtyard. I chose this for it's proximity to the highway and convenience to get to Fairfield in the morning. The rooms are clean, and comfortable, the bathrooms are a bit small,... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in the Penthouse: 2-bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, full kitchen, living room. Ample space for all and guests. Nice to have full kitchen with little ones. Place was well kept, lobby staff very good. Will stay here again.

We took two rooms here for a family group that was attending an event at Yale University. The rate was very attractive. The rooms are large and comfortable. The travel time to our event was short and certainly worth the savings on the cost of lodging. We also found the staff to be friendly and quick to deal with our... More

I love staying at Residence Inn. Its more like an apartment or condo than a hotel. If there is one around it's where I usually stay. I am usually very happy and satisfied. The one in DC was awesome. Not this place. The bathroom was a real disappointment. Two big closets but a tiny tiny bathroom. The tub was black... More
