Good Value - a bit outdated even with the recent renovation

Let me start by saying the staff was great! Very attentive and very courteous. The room itself left a bit to be desired. Alot of the electrical outlets did not work. For example, they had a coffee maker, but the electrical outlet in that space did not work. We had to plug it in the bathroom. Also, the water went down the drain slowly and the showerhead was loose and the water did not flow from it properly. They did a great job cleaning the room, but for some reason they did not put fresh towels in the room which I found a bit strange.

Weekend Vacation

Nice hotel with very friendly staff. Only complaint was a request for more toiletries (supply in bathroom was for 1 and we were 3). Request for more was made around 4 but none had been delivered by midnight when we returned to room. If we had called, some would probably have been brought up but we were too tired to wait.

Nice hotel

The hotel was very nice, staff were nice. The elevators took 10 minutes each time (carrying all our bags and walking up 6 floors of stairs wasn't something we really wanted to do so we waited for it). Overall it was very nice and clean.

Quick trip

I spent one night here and it was extremely nice. Check in took me only about a minute, I found my room easily. It was very clean and organized. The beds are very comfortable and has lots of pillows. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had a nice stay but...

the bed linens were really rough and seemed starchy. The bed was very comfortable though and I was please with the cleanliness and smell of our room. We were very happy that there was an indoor pool but disappointed that there was no hot tub! It would have made our stay almost perfect if there was a hot tub along with the pool and gym. Also, we were told in our online travel agency itinerary that breakfast was included in our package but when we checked in we were told breakfast would be an additional charge. If we had known breakfast was not complimentary we would have stayed at a competing hotel down offers a complimentary breakfast and a hot tub at the pool.

Connecticut Trip- Courtyard by Marriot, Shelton

My family and I went to Bridgeport for the weekend. This hotel was a convenient 10-15 mins outside of Downtown Bridgeport. The hotel is very welcoming and looks lovely on the inside (including the lobby and our room). Our room and bathroom were very clean which is especially important to us. The staff was very polite and friendly. There is a nice pool and large ballrooms. Breakfast is served, but it is not complimentary. My only complaint is that our room had a room service menu, but when we called to order, we were told it was closed on the weekends. The menu in our room told us it was open daily. The hotel was under some renovations, but the plans seem like some very nice additions will soon be available (a little coffee shop, a market in the lobby etc). This was our first stay at a Courtyard by Marriot and I was extremely pleased with this hotel. We will stay in another one again.
