We spent only one night at this hotel but I was very impressed. First, the rate for their two BR penthouse suite is fantastic - definitely go for the upgrade for a minimal difference in price. The hotel staff were all extremely friendly and helpful especially the 2 women at the front desk. The rooms were immaculately clean and in...

rooms are amazing, staff is amazing, above and beyond to accommodate, would definitely recommend this establishment. I travel for work and live in hotels nearly 10 months a year, To get a room with an oven, not just a stove top but an actual oven...It's a beautiful thing. The little things make all the difference.

We stayed here for three nights for the New Year's Eve holiday. I specifically chose this hotel because we wanted a room with a fireplace. To our surprise there was a nice sized kitchenette as well. The room was very nice and comfortable. The service was very good, as well. There were plenty of restaurants not far from the hotel...

Older, nice, Residence Inn from the 1980's, with outside entrance-drive up to your room layout. Good parking set up. Nice location on Bridgeport Avenue, perched on a hill, near grocery stores and restaurants. Rooms seem to have been renovated well and are spacious. New furniture and fixtures. Breakfast in lobby area was above average, very good for a hotel meal....

My husband and I stayed at the Residence Inn in Shelton, CT for 3 months following a kitchen fire in our house. This could have been a stressful time for us but the staff at the Residence Inn made sure that it wasn't. On a daily basis, our needs were anticipated and met. Everyone there treated us like family. In...

From start to finish a fabulous stay! Greeted by smiling, efficacious ladies who immediately recognized my status and had upgraded my room to a penthouse. And they continued to be diligent the whole time making sure every thing was to my liking. I have stayed in a lot of hotels, but never one with two floors. Fabulous design that I...

This was a personal trip and only for four days but the warm greeting and service I received from Neriska (fellow Boricua) and Chris at the counter was very much appreciated.

We stayed at the Residence Inn to visit family over the holidays. We had Marriott Reward points and used them for our stay. We have stayed here twice now, and though the price is very reasonable, it is time for an update of the rooms. The rooms are a good size and with the kitchen and sitting area they have...

One of my favorite places I have stayed this year. There is a fireplace in the room, a beautiful full kitchen and diligent staff. Three times a week there are mixers to meet other guests. The rooms are clean and it is conveniently located next to the highway exit. The Connecticut shoreline is close by.

I only stayed on night while on business, but I think meant more for extended stay. Room had kitchenette, living area and bedroom - was very large. My floor was on second floor so I had to walk up two flights of stairs with a large suitcase. Be aware that doors are outside no inside hallways.
