“Good for business travel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

The location for this hotel is excellent, close to the train station and businesses downtown Stamford. Bar, lobby, and business meetings areas was good as well. Starbucks in the lobby was my favorite part of this stay. The only negative would be the highway noise and on and off climate control unit made sleeping less than pleasant.

Thank you very much for your response, and for staying with us recently. Our downtown location is certainly a plus--near the Stamford train station and most of the large businesses in town. We are walkable to many of these companies too--or use our free shuttle van service.

I am sorry the highway noise disturbed your sleep--just ask us for a white noise machine on your next visit and we'll deliver to your room. We want your stay with us to be pleasant--and quiet.

We look forward to having you visit again soon!

All I could say is that this hotel is superb! Service is awesome but the people in the front desk could put some smile on there face :) other than that our stay was a good one. It is also next to the mall and target is walking distance. Would totally recommend it

This is a nice full service Marriott. It's a little bit dated in the hallways, but the rooms are on the nice side of standard. Windows don't open, there's no balcony, but clean and comfortable inside. The pool is very nice, but I didn't use any of the spa features.

They're located right off the highway, just a couple blocks from the train station (have shuttle or <10 min walk) where both Amtrak and Metro North rail stops. They're also walking distance to several moderate and higher-end restaurants in Stamford Town Center mall including PF Changs, CPK, Kona Grill, and Mitchell's Fish Market. Each were pretty good, typical food. I felt ok walking alone at night, but this is definitely an urban center and I was very aware of others and my surroundings.

I found this hotel for a business meeting, and have used it several times when NYC hotels are just crazy expensive. It's a 45 minute trip from Grand Central and a <10 minute walk to the hotel. It's full-service, but that also means you pay for everything.

The Parking garage is small, confusing (exit one level below where you enter) and has narrow spots.

The staff however, were very nice, very accommodating and helpful.

If your travels take you to Stamford, you'll get a decent night's sleep. :)

Room Tip: It doesn't matter which side of the building you're on--there is no highway noise & not...

I stayed at this hotel on business in April 2013 for one night. The hotel is very much a standard Marriott--nothing special. My impression was that the hotel is in need of a renovation.

I say this because the hallways were beat-up looking--carpet was stained and dirty (even with the too busy print) and the wallpaper was scuffed and starting to peel in a few places. Elevators looked worn, with the wood paneling having a few dents and scars. The areas around the parking garage elevator look terrible. The garage itself is annoying--cars are parked in non-spaces, turns are tight, lighting is dim.

More than the obviously beat-up sections of the hotel, the hotel needs a decor update badly. It feels like stepping into a very corporate hotel of the 1990s; there is nothing distinctive or local about the design. The renovations that have been done over the years look patchwork and band-aid like--they can't cover up that the fundamental design of this hotel is from another era. The place would be a lot better if the ripped out the old looking signage, reduced the number of patterns on the carpet (several of which are mismatched, especially in guest room hallways), got rid of some of the imposing columns and wood paneling, changed the color scheme from red and gold to something more modern, opened up the front desk, etc. The lobby is odd--there are several dead spaces, especially near the parking garage entrance. I have been in several other Marriotts that have substantially renovated the lobby and public areas to feel significantly more modern; this hotel should follow that trend.

Service was fine. Check-in was fast and efficient. I was not offered a room in-line with my preferences on-file with Marriott, though--my profile asks for a room on a high floor away from the elevator; I was assigned a room right next to the elevators on a low floor. The concierge lounge had a decent evening spread of appetizers. I found one of the staff members in the lounge very irritating--he had a booming voice and was quite intrusive in how he interacted with guests. This made it hard to relax or get any work accomplished in the lounge.

Location is convenient if your business is downtown; several restaurants are within walking distance.

Thank you for staying with us recently, and for your candid review. Our guestrooms and hallways were completely renovated in 2009, and the lobby and Sam's Bistro in 2011. Although relatively 'new' renovations, in such a busy hotel we are constantly working on preventive maintenance issues, and trying to stay ahead of the kind of shortfalls you noticed.

Thank you for bringing them to our attention, and we will work harder to make your next stay more pleasing. We hope you return to the Stamford Marriott again soon.

stayed here Saturday night, nice hotel, but disappointed there was no balcony. The parking garage was just too....complicated, we drove around in circles before we could figure out how to get out...too funny. But really the location was good, there's a PF Changs across the street and a Barnes & Noble.
I gave it a "very good" rating, had no complaints with the room, bedding, bath, etc, just disappointed a bit.

I would not have stayed here but I did because I had a discounted rate because of a conference and the fact it was paid by my employer. They did allow dogs though which was a surprise. Because of that, I made a mini vacation out of it with my dog and visited local hiking trails on the way there and in Stamford. Way too overpriced restaurant and lounge on site. That is typical though of downtown, full service hotel. I would have never stayed here for pleasure...business only. Even though they allowed dogs, there is very little space for them to do their business. A small patch of grass and a flower bed out front is the only place, but I did not complain about that. I utilized the great parks in the morning, afternoon, and night that Stamford offers.

Room Tip: First floor if you have pets.
