“Just a place to stay in a bind”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Had to stay here because we lost power. It was the only hotel with availability. The rooms are small, which is fine, but the TV did not work correctly. More than anything the service is really subpar. The staff is just not competent or perhaps just need some training on simple things like answering phones and listening to a customers. They're just not the sharpest tools in the shed. The heater/air conditioner was very loud and unpredictable (the settings do not work properly). But like I said, if you are in a bind and need a place to stay, it's guess it's fine. It's clean!

Dear Proottravels,

Thank you for taking the time to post this review. My apologies if you found that the level of service was not to your standards. We place great emphasis on guest service as is noted in many of our Tripadvisor posts and take every opportunity to improve it where we can. I will definitely share this with the team to ensure everyone is consistently as sharp as they need to be. I am happy you found our rooms to be clean and more importantly that we were able to accommodate you in the wake of the Hurricane Sandy as it truly was a busy time for us all. Whether it be for business, leisure or in a bind we are always happy to extend our hospitality.

Warmly,
Tim Simpson
Property Manager

This is a very new looking hotel with everything modern, clean and sparkling. It is near I-95. Free parking is underneath. Commuter rail to NYC is nearby. A number of restaurants are on the same block. The rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds. Security is enhanced by requiring a room key to operate the elevator. But what really stands out is the free, full breakfast consisting of two kinds of scrambled eggs, home fries, hash browns, bacon, sausages, bagels, toast, danishes, fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee, teas, juice, etc. etc.

This hotel was beautiful and reasonably priced. They offer complimentary breakfast and local transportation. The staff was pleasant and helpful. It is located within walking distance of quite a few restaurants and the train station. We enjoyed our time there.

The hotel is walking to distance to the train station. Rooms were modern, nice lobby and plenty of restaurants were nearby in an area called Columbus Park. I took car service back to JFK for less than $100. Would stay again.

The hotel is super convenient and has all of the requisites for a fantastic stay in Stamford. The only negative is the parking situation--if the hotel is packed, then you'll have to improvise a parking space. Because other people also tend to do this, getting out of the garage can be a challenge, as other cars have also improvised spots. Other than that, a great stay!

We found this hotel on Tripadvisor the night we stayed there. It is a very nice boutique hotel. Customer service is excellent. They even gave us menus for food delivery in the area with recommendations. Our room was clean. I was most impressed with the bathroom. They even serve a full breakfast each morning and it's "free." Will definitely stay here the next time we visit New York.

Dear Shoniej74,

Thank you for the great review and I am thrilled to know you first heard about us on TripAdvisor. Outstanding service is at the heart of it all and we strive to hit the mark with each of our guests. Our complimentary warm buffet breakfast is a welcomed perk and we are a great affordable alternative to accommodations in New York. Not to mention the train station is a short ride away in our shuttle. We hope to see you again in the near future. Until then, safe travels!

Warmly,
Tim Simpson

Stayed one night to attend a function in my old hometown. Very convient to I95 and within walking distance of train station and entertainment/restaurant area. Room was not large, but quite comfortable with lovely bedding. Breakfast is quite a spread and hotel shuttle is willing to take you most anywhere in Stamford. Would definetely stay again.
