I stayed in a studio suite for three weeks during a business trip to nearby Fairfield, and it was one of the most enjoyable stays on business.
The hotel is easy to find but secluded, with very little noise. ample and spacious parking area right in front of the entrance.
The staff at this place were very friendly, helpful and always smiling. It was my first visit to Connecticut, and they were extremely helpful about the local area, where to go out/eat. They recognized the guests, and since I told them i was expecting post, every time i came back in the evening, they would let me know if there was anything for me on that day.
Depending on what you're used to and prefer, the interior design can appear a little country-house, and the color schemes dated, but it felt homely and everything was in good condition and clean.
There was a tiny shop in a room next to the reception, with a variety of sweet and savory snacks, few cheeses and cold meats, some frozen dinners and toiletries you may have forgotten to bring.
In addition to the big and comfortable bed, the studios have roomy living areas with a pull-out sofa and a fully equipped kitchen. The TV was set-up with a good swivel tray and could be easily watched from the bed and the sofa.
With no time to buy supplies, and a wide variety of menus for local delivery services, I only used the kitchen to make tea/coffee as well as cook once, but all the basics I could imagine needing were there.
Each morning the breakfast variety was good, and replenished quickly. The housekeeping cleaned and straightened the room very well each night, and on the occasions when I met and spoke with them, they were extremely courteous and helpful. The dry cleaning was prompt and reasonable priced, and the in-house laundry facilities sufficient to do your own clothes washing.
The whirlpool had a nice large-window view over an outdoor terrace, and the surrounding area. The gym was well equipped and although not too big, comfortable for few people to exercise at once.
Other colleagues on the same trip stayed in 1 bedroom suites, which were a little more spacious and separated the bedroom / bathroom area from the kitchen and the living area with a door - a little more privacy if you're having visitors and especially for overnight visitors staying on the pull-out couch.
The only thing that would have made this place more comfortable would be a restaurant with room service at night, but it's not that kind of hotel, and there are plenty of restaurants and take-aways near by.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for any duration of stay, but particularly if you're looking for a comfortable place for longer stays.
