Last time we stayed here it was prior to the renovation, and we were underwhelmed. This time it was much nicer, thanks to a renovated room.

Stayed one weekend night with family--two young kids--for pleasure. It snowed hard, so we ordered room service for both dinner and breakfast and didn't leave the hotel the whole time.

Pool area still could use some sprucing up, but it was still fine, and hopefully it's next on the list for renovation. The room, meanwhile, was brand new. Staff was courteous. No complaints, and it's back on the list of our recommended Stamford/Greenwich hotels.

I stayed 3 weeks for professional reasons at the marriott in Stamford.

The room is nice, clean , big. The hotel overall is really nice and fancy with restaurants.

But the service quality was disappointing compared to the quality of the hotel...
First during the 3 weeks, I got 3 rooms and none of them provided the same level of service. The first week, I had a nice room with an upgraded bathroom! In the second room, the bed was really bad and the third room had an old bathroom and I even found holes in the bed linen...

Also the staff at the reception was not really helpful.

Finally, prostitutes try to find clients in this hotel...
Some of my male coworkers also staying at the marriott told me they met 2 ladies in the elevator one night and one of them gave them a business card that was advertising massages and "personal services". The next night, we saw the 2 girls wandering between the lobby and the elevator.

I suspect the marriott staff knows about it (there are securiiy cameras everywhere. And seriously I m not good at recognizing people but those ladies were so easy to spot) but thinks this is convenient for their customers.Which is really sad...

I generally stay at Marriott's on business so I am a big fan of the brand. However, my affinity towards the brand is not biased at this time.
We stayed overnight in stamford due to my son's youth hockey game and loved the hotel. A few minutes away from the ice rink, it is centrally located in the stamford biz district. parking charge is assessed at $10 with a multi level indoor garage with great interior access.
Rooms are new with an awesome shower with dual heads and great pressure.
Had dinner in the hotel restaurant. Great food and the water, Mr. Jean was quite friendly and accomodating given that we arrived 15 minutes before the restaurant closed. Although we wanted the pulled pork quesadilla, we opted for the grilled tuna sandwich. I've been thinking of it since and my wife has finally said "shut up already." Multiple ballrooms for business meetings and also hosts a comedy club. The hotel was very busy but the rooms were pretty good as to muffling sound.
A definite stay if you have the choice.
BTW, priceline friendly at $55 for the eve.

Great stay, perfect for my husband's picky tast (it passed his bathroom inspection), and the Manhattan package was a very nice treat. Staff very helpful - van guy shot us over to the train quickly so we could catch it, everyone was very friendly and helpful. I had stayed there for business a couple of years back and thought it would be a good place to stay for a trip to NYC, and it worked out perfectly. Much cheaper and cleaner than anywhere we could have gotten in NYC. So much appreciated!

A friend and I booked the girlfirend's get a way package At the Stamford Marriott Hotel and Agora Spa. We were celebrating her birthday! It included delux accommodations, 1 spa treatment each at the Hotel Agora Spa, and drink coupons for the Hotel bar, Northern Lights.

The rooms have been recently renovated. The beds are amazingly comfortable. Our room included 2 double beds with tons of pillows, a partial view of the Long Island Sound and full view of Stamford Town Center. The room had a large closet, fridge, flat screen TV, and a media center with hook ups for everything electronic. The bathroom....
WOW! The glass surround shower is a the size of a walk in closet with shower heads in the ceiling and on the wall. Water pressure is strong and hot! Air conditioning worked quietly and consistently.

Parking is indoor in the Hotel Garage. Check in was smooth. The hotel lobby has a comfortable sitting area, a coffee shop and gift shop, and the concierge desk. The hotel has large, beautiful banquet rooms.

The Agora Spa is very unique. The locker room is incredibly clean and smells wonderful. The spa robes are soft and actually fit you. The relaxation room is a dream. Soft music, and lighting, candles and comfortable furniture and again a great aroma! There are soothing snacks and refreshing beverages. It is a sincerely relaxing environment. You don't feel "pressured" to relax like in some spas. The spa treatment rooms were warm, but not hot. Just right. The treatment room scent was lavendar. The music puts you into a perfect state of mind to enjoy. You feel suspended into relaxation. The massage therapist was superb. Just enough pressure where you need it. After the massages we spent more time in the relaxation room, just relaxing.

We went to the Hotel Bar, Northern Lights. Great bar tenders. Very attentive. Service was excellent and our first round of drinks were free with our package.

We walked about 1 block from the hotel to the Stamford Town Center for dinner. We could see the Marriott from where ever we were at the Stamford Town Center. Great restaurants! We ate at PF Changs. The entrance to the Stamford Mall is also within walking distance of the hotel. Great bars! Mixed age crowds at most of the bars.

For breakfast we ate at the hotel restaurant. It was delicious. We had the breakfast buffett. Food was fresh, hot and of great variety.

Book your spa package now! You'll love it!

We were a bit weary of staying after reading some other reviews since we booked through Priceline. The lobby was very neat, we were given a renovated room, and the shower was equipped with two shower heads--very nice. The morning breakfast buffet was quite good as well, and we tend to avoid any buffet-type meals as a rule. Parts of the hotel were still under renovation. The pool and patio area were pretty dumpy, but as it was a cloudy day it didn't affect us much. There is a fair amount of noise was the highway, as it's right on I-95. My only complaint--the air conditioner was wicked loud and kept me up.
