The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and other amenities. The bed was horrible, worst ever and we travel frequently. The walls are quite thin and can hear talking in the hallway. Would not stay here again.

There's a brand new, beautiful lobby with delicious hot breakfast & Starbucks coffee. Breakfast staff were always friendly and tried to put a smile on my pre-coffee face. There's also a cool touch screen interactive board which will give you traffic, weather, and news before you leave for the day. My bedroom, however, felt like it belonged to a different hotel. I got a first floor room by the pool and it smelled musty and old. The beds felt like college dorm room beds instead of real mattresses. They even looked strange - so low to the ground. Gym was tiny but had everything I needed. I don't think I would enjoy coming back here. I'm looking forward to when they remodel the rest of the rooms to match the lobby!

I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Norwalk, CT for several days during the recent hurricane. Despite the stressful situation of having so many displaced families unexpectedly staying in the hotel, the experience was excellent. The staff was so responsive, considerate and professional. The room and the lobby were very clean and comfortable. The Internet service was excellent and the cafe was so nice to have with convenient hours. The manager did a great job, as did each of her staff. This kind of service you expect at a hotel no matter what the reason for staying, and you definitely got it here.

Modern, friendly, welcoming hotel.We were on the ground floor. Large bedroom with big sliding patio door. Though we arrived late, the restaurant put together a great dinner for us, with our two kids of 12 and 15 with very helpful and friendly staff. Big thunderstorm outside that night but we felt very comfortable in our beds.Breakfast was again delicious, with staff going out of their way to add extra touches and service. Recommend this hotel for a night stop over.

Tired rooms and hallways - don't be fooled by the renovated lobby. Paper thin walls and loud plumbing make for a rough night's sleep. Strangely configured outlets made it impossible to plug in my computer anywhere except the bathroom. Front desk and cafe staff were helpful and friendly. Last month I published a review praising the New Haven Courtyard as exceeding my expectations. Norwalk's Courtyard is more expensive and much less impressive.

My wife and I had our first child in July -- a little boy named Beckett -- but, in advance of her due date, we wanted to get away one last time. We were pretty limited in where we could go: we didn't want to stray too far from home, and we could only do one night away. We remembered, though, that some years ago we had a fun night in South Norwalk and decided to head back.

We''ve mostly had good luck with Marriott properties and this was no different. The lobby had recently been refurbished and we snagged a quality breakfast in the morning (there is a little bar there too, though we did not partake). The room was big and comfortable: huge bed, a nice TV, clean bathroom, powerful A/C. We slept very well. We also requested a room away from the road -- a fairly major thoroughfare -- and it was very quiet.

A big bonus: the pool. In fact, my then-eight-and-a-half-months-pregnant wife's one request for our night away was finding a pool. It's sizable, heated and enclosed, and not at all crowded when we hung out there for an hour or so in the morning.

Now, obviously, the hotel mostly caters toward business travelers and it's hardly the most charming place you could stay. But it was comfortable and affordable and provided us with exactly what we needed: a night away from NYC. The hotel is not far from I-95 and the Merritt Pkwy, and nearby downtown Norwalk -- ie, South Norwalk, or "SoNo" -- is worth the trip. There are several charming streets down by the harbor lined with restaurants and bars, and we once again enjoyed having a nice dinner and drink there. It's a really nice spot, and the hotel is just a short/easy drive (maybe 10 minutes or so) away.
