“Nice hotel, and welcoming staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I've stayed here a few times and always find it a welcoming place.

Positive change over previous visits, the wifi is now free to use.

Morning staff in the breakfast are friendly and helpful, and create a positive start to the day.

The room was as expected with 2 double beds instead of the king I asked for. The internet was faster than most hotels I've stayed in. The bed was very comfortable as expected in a Marriott. the sleep was good and traffic slowed about 9:00 to get to sleep. The shower was superb with plenty of hot water and both an overhead and front facing shower head (felt like I was in a warm rain storm). All of the staff was perfect and the only real downside about the stay was the cost of parking.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Stamford are the best view.

My husband and I have been going to this Marriott for over 30 years and almost feel like we are coming home every time we arrive at the front desk. They keep up with the new styles of lobby decor and furniture changes that many of the Marriott have recently adopted. We feel that their weekend rates are so affordable and their breakfast buffet hard to beat which includes made to order omelettes, French Toast, sausage, bacon, fruit, pastries etc. There is now a new Courtyard Hotel in town which is getting excellent reviews and is in the heart of the restaurant area where the Marriott Hotel is a few blocks away from the main area of town. However, the hotel offers a free shuttle service to anyplace you want to go to until 11 at night. We are loyal to the Stamford Marriott and have never felt the need to look for any other hotel when visiting the Stamford area 2 or 3 times a year.The staff is always helpful and knowledgeable so that anything you need is always taken care of in a pleasant way. Keep up the excellent work Stamford Marriott. We are Lifetime Platinum Marriott Rewards members and this is one of our favorite hotels.

Room Tip: The rooms closer to Highway 95 are in the newest wing and we prefer those. Don't worry, the wind...

This convenient in town location is aging and in need of a good cleaning and an update. while the bed was good and the bath was clean, carpets were poorly vacuumed and opening the desk drawer revealed someone's week old room service meal ignored in the cleaning process. On my first visit, the electronic lock on the room door failed completely leaving me stranded in the hall for over an hour while maintenance attempted to fish the lock with a wire.

On the plus side, staff is unfailingly pleasant, helpful and apologetic. Stamford is a nice town and there are far nicer places to stay. I'm a Marriott fan but this one needs help!

pgriffith, Director of Sales at Marriott Stamford Hotel and Spa, responded to this review, March 21, 2013
I am sorry your recent stay was less than perfect. The carpets should always be freshly vacuumed when you check-in, and there is no excuse for the food found in a desk drawer--please accept our apologies.
All guestrooms were renovated just four years ago, and the lobby and Sam's restaurant were remodeled only two years ago--these areas should always look fresh and clean since the work was quite recently done.

Thank you for the positive comments about our staff, and for taking the time to alert us about shortcomings our housekeeping team will work on starting now.

Truly a fantastic hotel. We arrived Saturday March 16, 2013. From the moment we checked in till the minute we checked out everything was perfect. When we checked in I requested that we be put on high floor away from the highway and train. The front desk person gave us the 14 floor and it was excellent did not hear any noise. We also asked for directions to different places and they went out of their way to assist. They gave us maps and gave us suggestions as to where to eat. We also made reservations to the spa and it had to be the best treatment I had in a long time. The steam room was perfect and the treatment was even better. All I can say is it was a fantastic weekend at the Marriott. Thanks again. Wanted to just say thank you and we will be back again for another spa treatment and a day in Stamford.

- nearby a small mall with a few good restaurants
- you can walk to the train station and hop to NYC for a few dollars
- business center with printers but run-down computers full of viruses that end up freezing
- we had catering as this was a business meeting - pretty good food and snacks
- it's true that you can hear the traffic on the highway
- bar in the hotel is one of the few places to have a beer on a Tuesday as there was nothing interesting available in town (the only pub-pool place was reseved for a bank or E&Y function or something like that )
