We stayed here for a Lacrosse Tournament held at Fairfield University - Sound Lacrosse Tournament. When we arrived, there were cookies and fresh lemonade, a nice touch. We were travelling with a lacrosse team with a lot of people checking in (there were a few other teams for other sport events also), however, the staff checked us in very quickly and were friendly and helpful. Our room was at the Concierge level, we stayed in a King room, one of the last rooms available. The room was impeccably clean, roomy and the bed was very comfortable – especially the pillows! Here were 3 of us, and we had ordered a cot – which was not available for some reason; however, there was a pull out sofa in the room – it was ok, not terribly comfortable… although about what you’d expect from a pull-out.
The property was nice, the outdoor pool area was very spacious, attractive and enjoyable, although the pool was small. (very small in proportion to the whole area). The indoor pool was nice. We wanted to order pizza in for the team and sit outside, however the hotel front desk informed us we could not bring food from the outside in - only food from the restaurant; that was a bit disappointing. We do a fair amount of traveling to tournaments, and usually hotels accommodate teams to do this.
The hotel was sold-out, and considering all the teams/kids staying there, it was quiet.
The only other item I'd mention is that there was a fee to access an internet connection – that seems a bit outdated – even budget hotels like Super 8 hotels offer that without a fee. It wasn't a big deal to us though for this weekend.
I’d recommend this hotel, it was a very good value for the price. The staff was nice and helpful. For attending the Sound Tournament, it was relatively close, easy to get to, however, there wasn’t much around the area (restaurants, walking around), staying in Fairfield is nice. There’s a grocery store across the street though, which was handy.
