Catering to business and leisure travelers alike, the Residence Inn features 156 spacious apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens; almost 2,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space complemented by a 1,000-square-foot terrace; a tequila and tapas bar, One Club and a 2,000-square-foot fitness center, plus pool access at the connecting Courtyard by Marriott Stamford Downtown. The hotel’s owners and operators were joined by city officials for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting on Dec. 6.
