The area where this is located is very nice. The hotel is very nice, too. I was surprised the cafe food was not overpriced; had a good frittata for breakfast. Like that the gym was open 24 hours and they had multiple treadmills, which I think could be very helpful at certain times of day. However, there were a few... More

The Marriott Courtyard in Shelton is one of the best Courtyard properties I have ever stayed at. I stay pretty much exclusively at Marriott properties when I travel and I have come to expect a certain level of quality from their Courtyard line. This property has it all for a reasonable price. Clean, well maintained open spaces and well appointed... More

Business center well stocked. Indoor pool, fitness center. Bedrooms are large, well appointed, micro, coffee maker, refrig, flat screen tv. Standard Marriott toiletries. Well worn Mattresses need to be replaced. Plenty of... More

We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott, Shelton, Conn on 4/4. It was our third time staying here which tells you right away, we like it here. Nothing spectacular but...clean, well kept, updated, convenient, peaceful and meeting expectations for a terrific price are what it does deliver.

A few glitches, but helpful and eager to please staff easily overcame. Room was okay, but mattress with broken spring in one bed. Location was good for our purposes.

This hotel is ideally placed for visiting nearby clients and the host of nearby, walkable restaurants. The staff are always helpful and genuinely happy to help. The rooms are clean and functional.
