The Guest House at the Norwalk Inn, The Norwalk Inn’s newly renovated historic all-suites hotel, is gaining attention from the television and film industry.
Ellen Woolf Rubrich with the Connecticut Office of Film and Television recently met with Martha Spiegel, The Norwalk Inn's director of business development, to tour the property.
Just a few days prior, NBC Universal Peacock Productions was onsite filming a segment for Investigation Discovery’s series, True Crime with Aphrodite Jones.
“With its fully appointed extended-stay suites, The Guest House at the Norwalk Inn is positioning itself to accommodate members of the film and television industry who require full service lodging. Our suites feature kitchenettes, living rooms, office space and luxury baths and the Inn offers important amenities such as meeting facilities, a gym, business services and a free shuttle,” said Spiegel in a release.
In past years, the City of Norwalk has entertained actors and production crews for films such as Hope Springs, with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones, Confessions of a Shopaholic, College Road Trip and Revolutionary Road.
Restoration of The Guest House at the Norwalk Inn was completed earlier this year to serve as an extended stay hotel with 11 luxury suites.
The original property, known as the Grumman- St. John House, was built in 1750 and was first listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
Although the structure had fallen into disrepair during the last two decades, due to the efforts of State and local politicians, the Norwalk Preservation Trust and the Norwalk Inn’s owners Chris Handrinos and George Katsaros, an agreement was reached to restore the property to its rightful place among the town’s historic treasures.
