Location: In the heart of down town Stamford/Greenwich next to the financial institutions that trafficked in the leveraged instruments that brought down the world economy. Convenient on-off from I95 close to Stamford RR station. Easy access to NY via road or train.
Room: Clean, nicely furnished medium sized room with comfortable beds, large flat screen TV, fridge, desk, coffee maker. No complaints. Nicely refurbished.
Bath: Recently redone with a huge shower with two nozzels, but no bathtub. Odd sliding door.
Exercise and Pool Facilities: Looked very good. Will try on another visit.
Front desk: Service on check in was efficient and courteous even though we had booked via Priceline.
Problem: We never received our 5 AM wakeup call. Darned good thing we had set alarm watch PLUS cell phone, or we would have been in big trouble at JFK.
Unexpected Bonus: We managed to get out of the hotel before 6 AM and did not have to pay that 12 dollar parking fee. No attendant was on duty and the gate was open.
Unexpected Pleasure: The Colony Grill is about a half mile away on the other side of the tracks. If you enjoy savory crisp thin crust pizza in a tin ceiling old fashioned working class family place with reasonable prices. 8 bucks per pizza with buck fifty for each topping. The homemade sausage topping is highly recommended. Superb! Expect to wait during peak periods.
