“Date Night @ The Hilton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

This was not my first time staying at The Hilton Stamford, it was ok not great. Check in and out was extremely quick which is always nice. The room was clean, bed was nice. I would come back but I do think I am going to try some of the other hotels in the area.

The price was very reasonable and it was so clean. We ate at the restaurant and the food and service were good. On the negative side, we self-parked in the garage and found it extremely confusing because it is shared with other businesses and not clearly marked. We took the shuttle to the train station and it was convenient. Overall, satisfied.

I just returned from a one night stay at the Hilton Stamford Ct...it was awful!

Upon check in I was told the room I had booked on the executive floor was not available. As a travel agent and a mom I always book on the club level of a hotel when available its quiet and convenient...instead I was placed on the 8th floor ("comped" breakfast and parking which was nice but I really like to "get what I pay for"). upon walking up to the room the elevator opens and the hall is littered with dirty linens and housekeeping carts at 5PM!!!..a very poor first impression. Although the lobby is SPECTACULAR and a sight to behold the room is less than adequate..dark, dank, old smelly carpets and a style from the late 80s, the hallway looks like a hallway in a tenement building in NYC and my view was of the roof of the lobby. The room had a sofa bed in it which was not made up for our stay, when I opened it, the mattress was covered in crumbs and dirt. The pool is poorly marked, not easy to find unless you follow the noxious chlorine smell; as we walked in to the fitness area was saturated with water and the laminate floor was slippery. The pool chlorine levels were way too high and there were multiple tween children unsupervised diving, flipping and "cannonballing" into the pool and on/near my children. I had to ask a male (non-employee) to go into the men's room for pool towels as there were none available anywhere to be seen. The rooms are poorly insulated and I could hear every guest return to their room laughing and slamming doors. For breakfast we sampled the buffet and waited 20 minutes for the chef to make 2 scrambled eggs.

Room Tip: wait for the hotel renovation, or go and sip a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the lobby..sleep...

The rooms were outdated and the restaurant service poor at both breakfast and lunch. We attended as part of a dance competition and stayed overnight for the convenience. The hotel is only average. They definitely need to work on customer service on the food and beverage side.

This hotel should not be a Hilton... we have stayed in better Hampton Inn's...

The walls are paper thin (we listened to family arguments and private conference calls - unfortunately!!!!)... if they could do anything at all to improve this property it would be to improve the insulation in the walls... the noise is HORRENDOUS! You can hear EVERYTHING in the corridors and the rooms next door...

Our shower curtain was moldy... yeuch... we had a hole in the ceiling... the shower leaked all over the floor and the gap under the door was so large we had to put a towel down to block out the light!!!

On the + side... very comfortable bed and super friendly and helpful staff... we had to call maintenance out for a problem with our bathroom toilet constantly running and the maintenance guy (Mike) was fantastic... very friendly, very helpful and courteous and fixed the problem with a new part in record time... :-)

Having to pay extra for parking was a bit much... it's not really in the city and there was plenty of space for parking...this just appeared to be another way to gouge more $$$'s out of you....

Probably would not come back...

HILTONs are usually better than this one. Was not pleased at all! In spite of the staff being friendly nothing got done with issues that I had with my stay. It was not enjoyable to stay there. Cabs from the hotel were expensive and they were not organized to help you. The one restaurant Senses was ok but for one meal not for many.

If you want to have a great breakfast while on the road with customer service at it's best, this is the place. I was greeted by one of the waiters who called me by my name, making me feel most welcome. His name was "Abet" and he made me think I was home! He did a great job further complimenting a great breakfast buffet.
