Courtyard by Marriott Stamford Downtown
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Stamford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Location - A big positive: Located at heart of Stamford downtown with lot of eateries and Stamford town center (mall) within a miles radius

Rooms - Average, the mattress and pillows are not top notch. Sleep quality was ok

Value for money - Low: Paid $275/ night for a standard room, which is far expensive for hotels in Stamford area. Couple of my colleagues though got a better deal with around $180 for a similar room

Transportation Service: The hotel provides free shuttle service in and around Stamford at regular intervals. In case you are not hard pressed for time and are okay to share a ride it's indeed a good service

Staff - It's a limited service hotel so you do not expect much from the staff and service levels. During my stay of 5 days I met staff with varying degrees of courtesy and friendliness

Room felt like being back 20 years. It was is worn down and lousy standard. Wifi is free but slow. Breakfast is ok, but thought the selection was limited. Small gym in the basement, but they apparently have an agreement with a gym next door. Anyway, I would recommend a more modern and newer hotel.

We took the hotel from our way back from cape cod and did no anything about the city. The hotel is in very central location and there are a lot of restaurants around. The staff is very friendly and gave us a
of lot recommendations. We got a nice clean room at the sixth floor. The room was spacious and had a nice view. It was a little bit noisy but we do not know where it came from. In comparison to other Courtyards this one is very outstanding.

As we checked in on September 6,2013 we ask if we could have a terrace room,the receptionist said, let me check to see if there is any available. She said yes, and accommodated us. They are only on the fifth floor. The room was very nice and clean. We went out on our terrace and enjoyed cocktails along with cheese and crackers. We went to the Town Center which was about a 10 minute walk. Very nice. Came back to the Hotel and got ready for dinner. The Hotel provides shuttle transportation anywhere in Stamford, which is very nice. We went to the Town Center Plaza for dinner at Plan B Burger Bar. All of their beef Menu items are 100% Verifed Humane. We order Steak and Fries a 12oz. NY Strip Steak which was very good. Highly recommend this restaurant. When we left the restaurant, the trees in the Piazza were all lit up with white lights,a very nice ambiance.

Room Tip: Ask the receptionist if there is any Terrace Rooms available.

I've stayed here a few times when I came down to Stamford for some friends. This way we can all go downtown and nobody has to worry about driving or anything. This hotel is the best! It's really nice and not too badly priced either. There's valet parking for about $10 which is nice and convenient. Rooms are clean, spacious and decorated nicely. It's located in downtown Stamford so you can literally walk to all the restaurants and bars. Next time I come to Stamford I'll definitely be staying here again!

Nice clean hotel. Located downtown, within walking distance to all restaurants. We spent a weekend and were not disappointed. The fitness room is smaller than in most others Marriott hotels, but just enough to satisfy your needs. We also enjoyed the whirlpool. The pool was right there and we were excited to chill ourselves after the hot whirlpool, but the pool water was way too hot, almost the same temperature as in the whirlpool - that is the only complain we have. Overall 4.5 stars.

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????

Room Tip: Turn on the heat and/or AC before you settle in.
