Recently stayed at Stamford Marriott three years after my prior visit to the same hotel. Very disappointed. The rugs and wall treatments were worn on the floor I stayed on. The first room we entered was very dated and worn, but clean, or so I thought. My wife picked up one of the in room magazines and it was covered with what appeared to be a food residue (like wet oatmeal). I went to the front desk and were were relocated to another room. The new room was clean, but the draft from the windows was so strong that the constant rush of heat and the drafty windows created moisture that froze the curtains to the window. Yes they literally froze to the window. I never received a call from the manager or front desk about the first room or were we satisified with the second room. I did receive a email that I noticed later the next day. REALLY, an e mail !!! You can't pick up the phone and call. I have often been a Marriott Platinum member (75+ nights a year). This Marriott is one of the worst.
The positive part of the trip was the breakfast in the morning. A much bigger and larger variety than most Marriotts.
Warning - Until you read there is a change in ownership and a complete remodel of this facility, don't stay here. Its a shame since it is a very good location in Stamford.
