“Simple hotel near main attractions.”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

After our honeymoon in Mexico, we decided to do shopping during the period of Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday .
Chose Stanford because our relatives live there .
Marriott chosen by themselves, out of habit ) ) .
Stamford Central Mall is located directly opposite the hotel (Macys, Apple store, Saks Fifth Avenue, etc).

But the hotel was not a standard Marriott as we used to.
The first thing that surprised was no safe in the room, as well as bathrobes and slippers (How go in the SPA without them ?). Rooms a bit oldish .
Our room was overlooking the Long Island Bay ( via the path of trains ) but good soundproofing. Good aroma-therapy cosmetics
Because we arrived late at night , everything was closed and we had to use room service : 2 cheeseburgers $9 each, 2 orange juice and a bottle of water without gas cost us just simply with all taxes and service charges (without tips) $ 56! Oops .
Spa works not every day. Thanksgiving it did not work of course.
So we can not say anything about it.
Pretty good breakfast with a wonderful fresh juice from Florida's oranges.
Omelets, cereal, croissants, fruits, sausages, eggs, bacon - a standard set .
On the ground floor there is a small shop .
Subtotal decent hotel for Stanford, but more suitable as Courtyard .

I have run 3-day business functions at this hotel over the past 10 years, booking between 150-200 room nights twice a year. The hotel is under new management and I was very disappointed with my last experience. When you run two large shows a year, there are times when you will be way over your quota, and once in a while under your quota, but a steady customer with a track record is usually a valued customer at any hotel. Not so at the Marriott. I was nickle and dimmed for everything, and I felt grossly overcharged, because we did not make our room quotas for this event. There was no room for negotiating. The hotel would not give us credit for rooms that were booked for our group if people used Marriott points, even though the reason they were there was because of our function and they spent plenty of money on food, etc. all weekend. It was a very unpleasant & stressful weekend for our company, while the Marriott profited greatly at our expense. I would never recommend it to any business associates. Read your contract very carefully!! Every word, because they will stick it to you. There are a lot of other hotels out there that will be happy to have your business. The hotel rooms are lovely, the location is good, but if you are running a business function ... look elsewhere.

Room Tip: The rooms are lovely, and comfortable.

Tricia,

I was sorry to read that you were unhappy with the terms of our agreement especially since concerns like you expressed have been the exception rather than the rule here at the Stamford Marriott. Based on your comments I am going to schedule a meeting with all of our Sales and Catering team who book events and make sure that they fully explain all the terms and conditions of our agreement for all future events.

With that being said, I would like to do something for you to make this right. I would appreciate you calling me at your earliest convenience with a suggestion that you feel would be fair and equitable to you and the Stamford Marriott.

We recently enjoyed a get-away without having to travel for hours. We enjoyed a romantic weekend at the Marriott, Stamford. The staff was extremely helpful, the rooms were newly renovated, as was the lobby and restaurant. Our spa included a massage, but I had previously visited the spa for a facial and found it to be a truly exceptional experience. The spa offers many options and is a great place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The shuttle even took us to the nearby Stamford mall for some shopping and dining at the Capital Grille. I highly recommend this venue. AnnMaria D

I am a frequent business traveler. I chose the Stamford Marriott for single and multiple night stays because it is highly accessible logistically for area restaurants, self and valet parking and the train to/from NYC and elsewhere. The lobby area provides a safe and inviting atmosphere for my client’s and guests to gather for a quick business meeting, catch up socially or read email before heading up or out for the night.

Overall, the entire hotel staff and management are friendly and accommodating and will do their best to create a great experience like no other hotel around. If you want a clean, comfortable, friendly and relaxing environment this is the place. Jim T

Room Tip: I like rooms on high floors facing north overlooking Stamford.

We stayed at the Marriott Stamford for our Holiday trip. It could not have been better. The service was terrific. The location is ideal for business or for enjoying 4 or 5 days off with family. The proximity to the train station, dinning and shopping is awesome. Also great workout facilities. Highly recommend a stay at this Marriott.

Room Tip: Our room was great, we had a room on the 12th floor. Great Views.

I've stayed at this hotel before, but this year, I stayed on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The staff were super accomodating, even allowing us access to a room to have a Thanksgiving meal after we returned from the Macy's day parade in NYC. This is a great place to stay if you are looking to stay outside the City. Plenty of restaurants and a mall within walking distance. Staff is awesome, very accommodating. New shower designs, impeccably clean. We were very impressed with our stay.
