Hotel Zero Degrees, Stamford, Connecticut, USA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen   
Hotel Zero Degrees, Stamford, Connecticut, USA  - Photograph by Luxury Experience Hotel Zero Degrees, a boutique 97-room hotel, opened in late October 2009, and is located in the heart of downtown Stamford, Connecticut within walking distance of the business district, cultural venues, restaurants, and nightlife, and the rail station. Located in the former YMCA, the space has metamorphosed into an attractive contemporary and comfortable hotel, and is conveniently located only 45-minutes from New York City.

With the growing green trend towards revitalizing rather than tearing down urban buildings, the eight floor Hotel Zero Degrees is a shining example of a transformation from its former existence from YMCA offices into a well-appointed boutique hotel. The lobby is bright and airy with attractive contemporary décor, a flats screen television is mounted over the fireplace that adds charm to a corner of the eye-catching lobby lounge where the sitting area is inviting with its inspired furniture in lipstick red and cream with dark wood accents, interesting artwork graces the walls, and dark wood tables flanked by heavy cream upholstered chairs provide a comfortable place for conversation, to work, and to enjoy the complimentary breakfast buffet.

The hotel has ingeniously incorporated the YMCA fitness center located on the second floor of the building and its Olympic-size swimming pool into the hotel design. Although under renovation during my stay in late February 2010, Hotel Zero Degrees and the YMCA will share the fitness center and swimming pool, which will have a separate outside entrance, and will provide hotel guests, as well as YMCA members with access to use the facilities.

Of the 97 rooms, 2 are suites, and Edward and I stayed in a deluxe suite that was stylishly furnished with a king bed with a wood and leather upholstered high headboard placed against a dramatic red and black geometric patterned wall. The bed was dressed with a white duvet, a selection of pillows, an attractive dark brown embroidered coverlet embroidered with red flowers, and a matching bed skirt. Wood night tables on either side of the bed held dark wood Asian inspired lamps with rectangular cream shades and an iHome system, and there was an upholstered bench placed at the end of the bed.

On the wall opposite the bed, there was a large wood desk in the corner of the room with an Asian inspired lamp with cream shade, telephone, and a round metal tray with ice bucket, and a large flat screen hi-definition television was placed on a chest of drawers. There was a comfortable sitting area with a lipstick red chair with a dark chocolate corduroy ottoman, a wood cube coffee table, and a matching dark chocolate corduroy sofa bed, with vibrant contemporary red prints in black frames on the walls. The well-lit bathroom featured a large walk-in white tile shower, a large silver framed mirror hung over the marble vanity that had a deep sink and a selection of Judith Jackson Spa toiletries. Other amenities included a hairdryer, iron and ironing board in the mirrored closet.

Security at Hotel Zero Degrees is of the utmost importance; guests must insert their hotel keycard in the elevator to access guestroom floors, the entrance doors to the hotel lock at 11:00 pm whereby guest entrance is by keycard access only, and the door to the parking garage also locks at 11:00 pm. Arrangements may be made with reception for guests requiring to enter or exit the parking garage after 11:00 pm.
