The complimentary shuttle service is available to take guests anywhere within a five-mile radius of the hotel, which includes the Stamford Metro Train Station that can take guests into New York City. Pets are welcome at this hotel for a fee and are welcomed with a comfortable dog bed upon arrival. After a day of travel or exploring the town, families can enjoy some quality time but the indoor heated pool.

We stayed here for a meeting. The beds are extremely high and should have stepping stools. The staff were all extremely nice and helpful. Great suggestions for meals. The executive lounge was great and always stocked. Although I would have like jellybeans available all day.
The hair dryers have a diffuser but the diffuser does not fit the dryers.
Two of the best features of this hotel for Bonvoy members have been the club lounge, and the local shuttle service. In the last week or so it seems these have both been removed, The lounge is now permanently closed (the room is open, but no food, beverages or services), and the shuttle service is gone.
Given many other Marriott properties in the area I would recommend reconsidering any stay at this property - the value equation has been greatly reduced.
