Can anyone tell me why the lower you get on the food chain for the different brands the higher the service? We had a choice of staying at the Stamford Marriott or the Courtyard and chose Courtyard...if only for the free WiFi which is a must when you travel. This property is conveniently located if you have friends in the downtown condos, love to eat (plenty of food places and a movie theater near by) but you need to have a car if you are doing business in one of the many high rises. Stay at the Marriott instead.Setting that aside, the best part of the room was the bathroom. Seriously...large, great shower, large counter space. My wife was with me and even SHE had enough room for her make-up. LOL!!! Sadly the room was bizarre. The closet was an an-war that jutted out into the walking area, the TV was on the left side of the bed rather than at the foot which 99.9% of rooms have so you can actually watch it and worse of all, the HVAC went from tropical to Arctic freeze about every 10 minutes all night PLUS you could hear it all the way to Albany. Never slept a full night. We're exhausted.Oh, almost forgot, the WiFi was so weak and slow I ended up using my IPhone as a Hotspot. Could have done the same at the Marriott which was more centrally located. Still don't understand in today's world how thses hotels charge for WiFi when you can go across the street to Starbucks...they finally got the message :) Wonder if there was a Residence in or Fairfield Inn around...would have had free parking, breakfast AND workable WiFi. Again, lower you go the higher the value. How weird????
