TripAdvisor Recognizes a Top Destination Among Hotels in Shelton, CT

The Courtyard Shelton's Friendly Staff and Renovated Spaces Earn It a Coveted Certificate of Excellence

SHELTON, CT -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- Once upon a time people might've shared travel recommendations with friends over the phone or during a post-vacation dinner. Nowadays, there's TripAdvisor. And while travelers may not know each other and may live halfway across the world from each other, their opinions are just as candid. That no-holds-barred honesty is what makes the uniformly positive reviews of the Courtyard Shelton so remarkable. Not only have the happy guests pinpointed a standout option among Shelton hotels for fellow travelers, but their rave reviews about the service, renovated accommodations and convenient amenities have earned the property a Certificate of Excellence.

TripAdvisor awards its Certificates of Excellence to only the top-performing 10 percent of hospitality businesses in the world. To be eligible, a business must maintain a rating of four or higher (out of a possible five) on the TripAdvisor website for at least 12 months.

TripAdvisor also considers the number of reviews a property receives, something that worked to the advantage of the Courtyard Shelton. Reviewers preferred it to other hotels near Bridgeport, CT for a variety of reasons, with service topping the lengthy list. "I travel for work about one week a month," reflects one reviewer. "The [Courtyard] Shelton has the best staff I have ever seen."

Other reviewers take that feeling even further, observing that, while there are many hotels in Shelton, CT, there are good reasons to return to this property. "I am a business traveler who has made the Marriott Courtyard in Shelton my home-away-from-home just about every week. Why? Simply stated...the staff! This is a group of warm, friendly, professional and caring people."

In addition to the attentive, friendly service, guests can look forward to newly renovated accommodations. The updated lobby sets the tone for the rest of the hotel with its free Wi-Fi, flexible seating and inviting atmosphere. Upstairs, guests can relax in well-appointed rooms with refrigerators, microwaves, coffee/tea service and large, moveable desks. And, unique among other hotels near Bridgeport, CT, the property even offers feather- or foam-free rooms to accommodate travelers with sensitivities.

"The remodeling is very modern and appealing," enthuses one reviewer, and that aesthetic appeal is borne out in practical ways, too. Guests rave about the sparkling indoor pool, the 24-hour fitness center and the convenience of The Bistro, which serves breakfast and dinner.

The Courtyard's prominence among Bridgeport hotels is cited again and again by TripAdvisor reviewers, and it explains why so many are avowed repeat customers. After all, when it comes to loyalty, it doesn't matter if someone is opining in person or online -- the action of returning to a hotel again and again speaks volumes. And TripAdvisor is listening.
