Stamford, CT Hotels Offer Weekend Alternative to Expensive NYC Escapes

Spend the Day in the City and the Night at Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa From Just $179

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2013) -  A desire to explore the excitement in New York City doesn't mean wanting to spend 24 hours amidst its high-energy atmosphere. With the 'See New York City' package at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, guests can mix a bit of big-city fun with a quiet, luxurious escape in Stamford, CT.

Visitors who want to walk amongst NYC's skyscrapers without having to pay sky-high hotel prices can enjoy a weekend at these Stamford accommodations from as low as $179 a night. In addition to a deluxe guest room, the package includes two round-trip, off-peak train tickets to Manhattan, complimentary shuttle service to the Stamford train station and breakfast for two at Sam's American Bistro.

While NYC is home to numerous attractions, from the Empire State Building to shopping along Madison Avenue, visitors can wind down the weekend with a day in Stamford. Mix fun with fitness at Chelsea Piers, catch a show at Stamford Center for the Arts, shop for the latest fashions at Stamford Town Center Mall or enjoy an afternoon at the Stamford Nature Center.

After a day out, return for a meal at Sam's American Bistro, or indulge in a treatment at Agora Spa, offering massages, facials and body treatments. Spend some quiet time in the comfort of a luxurious guest room; the plush bed is perfect for an afternoon nap, and a flat-panel HDTV offers premium cable and movie channels. Those who need to catch up on work can make a cup of coffee, settle into the spacious desk and connect with high-speed Internet access.
